I’m pretty certain it’s well known that the clownercraft network makes money. It’s not our focus, but it is important. The money we receive from purchasing ranks or head packs on our webstore is the only way we can afford to continue running the server.
We are however, very fortunate that the money people give us is more than enough to cover our costs. And so – we’re going to try and put some of the extra money we have to good use!
For the rest of this month, any payments made on our webstore will go straight to charity. Every cent will go to them. We’re even going to cover the paypal fees to process your payments, so everything you spend will go straight to our chosen charity.
On that note, our chosen charity is going to be International Justice Mission (or IJM). (Quick note, we’ll be giving to the UK branch of IJM specifically, but it’s all part of the same organisation)
IJM’s mission is to fight modern day slavery. Their field offices work in various locations around the world to rescue victims of trafficking and slavery, and then work with them to prosecute those at fault. An estimated over 45 million people are currently trapped in slavery. One of the worst parts of this, is that a large proportion of those slaves are children.
If you want to know more about IJM, and the problem of modern slavery, please do read up about them here. If you are under 16 however, please speak with your parents about this first.
If you want to support IJM, then you can go ahead and buy Supporter/VIP/VIP+/A head pack from our store, or you can donate directly to IJM on their website – if you’d rather avoid the middle man.
Already have VIP/VIP+?
You can always buy a rank for another player, or buy head packs, as well as just giving money.
Can’t affort it?
Don’t worry, you can still help. One of the problems with modern slavery is that many people don’t realise it happens. So spread the word – make people aware slaves are still a thing – and that we should try to end slavery once and for all.

We’ll announce a total of how much we’ve donated at the end of the month 🙂
