Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the Overwatch community, we’ve raised more than $12.7 million USD from sales of the Pink Mercy skin and special charity T-shirt to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is the largest donation by a corporate partner within one year in BCRF’s 25-year history, and it’s all because of you.

The special “Pink Mercy” charity skin was designed for the Overwatch hero Mercy, a scientist and “guardian angel” of the game who has dedicated her life to helping others. The limited-edition skin was offered as an in-game purchase, with Blizzard Entertainment donating 100% of the proceeds it received from sales of the skin to BCRF.

In addition to the charity skin, thousands of players showed their support for the cause with a purchase of a limited-edition Pink Mercy T-shirt, available for men and women, designed by community artist VICKISIGH.

Charity stream viewers, rejoice! You raised over $130,000 USD in donations watching 14 different Overwatch stars stream on Twitch.
