    Hello CubeCrafters, as many of you know throughout August we were raising money for Mind, the mental health charity. This charity does lots of awesome work around mental health ensuring people get both the support and respect they deserve. The reason we decided to raise money for this charity is that we know a lot of people, including some of our players and staff, have mental health issues and use the internet as an escape. They feel more confident and comfortable to open up about these issues online as they're hidden behind a username and nobody knows their real identity. So every Saturday in August we livestreamed over on our Twitch Channel for a few hours playing with our staff and you guys, the community. We also released a lot of new content, both maps and games, throughout the summer and the reason for this was Mind. In total, by donations and putting any money we made on Saturdays towards this cause, we raised an amazing total of;

    £10,155.45

    Myself, @rubik_cube_man, @Efcluke94 & @Marco Slater went down to London on Friday to meet with Emily and Alexia from the Fundraising Team to learn more about the amazing work they do. We also got a tour of their offices and how everything works there. We tried to explain Minecraft to them, who we are and what we do and I think they now have a basic understanding of it. Some of their staff had sons/daughters that played on CubeCraft (Kinda cool) so they got a couple of freebies from us.

    From me, and the rest of the Management Team, I'd just like to say a huge thank you to all of our players over the summer, the ones that watched our streams and donated to this great cause. Thank you to all of our amazing staff who helped us reach 30,000 players in August and helped moderate the server aswell as our Twitch Channel during streams. Without you guys we couldn't have raised this amazing amount which will go to help people in a much worse position than ourselves. We'll be looking at doing more fundraising in the near future.

    Thanks,
    - Joe :fantamug:

    It's refreshing & uplifting to know that a community with 30,000+ people can come together to make a positive impact in something as important as mental health. Major props to the management team for raising awareness on this, and everyone who donated or supported the cause. Hoping to see more fundraisers in the future! :)

    No, thank YOU. Not only from me, but from the whole community.
    And thank you on behalf of everyone struggling with mental issues. I know how hard it can be and I myself really find an event like this amazing. This can only be found at CubeCraft and that's why I keep supporting it.
    Much love, to the entire staff team and community to realise this. <3

    It's very heart warming to see a Minecraft server server not be jealous with their money. mineplex get on our level
    Well done to everyone who donated. <3
