Introducing an adventurous new pet with an especially curious nature—Whomper the baby yeti! When you adopt him in-game or in his plushie form, you’ll be helping Code.org® boost its mission to expand computer science education around the world.
As a part of Blizzard Entertainment’s ongoing quest to empower youth through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) education, we’re teaming up with Code.org for this year’s charity pet campaign.
When you purchase the in-game pet by December 31, 2018 either in the Blizzard Shop or from the in-game shop, we’ll donate 100% of the purchase price* to Code.org.
You can also purchase Whomper in a loveable plushie form on the Blizzard Gear Store, and every purchase made by December 31, 2018 will also help support Code.org.*
