Gameloft, the mobile games developer, is donating $25,000 to charity with the launch of an international competition between seven global YouTube stars that highlights a number of endangered animal charities.

From 16th-23rd June, seven YouTube influencers, which include Callux, GlitterForever17 and Julienco, will each play one of the seven themed dragons added to the Dragon Mania Legends® game in the latest release, each one supporting a different animal charity.

The YouTubers are competing with each other to collect the most tokens pledged in-game from their respective audiences.  The one with the highest number of ‘Golden Paws’ will win the event and Gameloft will donate €25,000 to the charity that the winner supported.
