JumpStart, the parent company of Neopets, will be proudly hosting a charity auction, debuting a 25-piece collection of Neopian art featuring characters from the beloved game. The auction will go live on GiveSmart on Monday, May 9, 2022 and will end on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
The full collection from the Neopets private vault on auction includes fine art paintings with luxe frames, large standees, and high-quality special posters that have adorned the walls of JumpStart Games headquarters.
The pieces will be auctioned individually on GiveSmart.com via live online auction. The proceeds will be distributed equally to four organisations who were chosen with Neopets users in mind, including: World Wildlife Fund (WWF), The Trevor Project, Project HOPE and Eden Reforestation Project.
“The rich history and vibrant lore of Neopets over the past two decades has culminated in a collection of fine art pieces, posters, and standees from past conventions and events. While the Neopets team greatly treasure these beloved art pieces, we decided that we would part with a selection from our private vault to benefit charity,” said Michaela Thompson, Marketing Manager of Neopets.
“Given the injustices, suffering, and inequity prevalent in the world’s current climate, we wanted to raise money for charities close to the hearts of both our team and our users, while simultaneously sharing this glimpse of iconic Neopets history with the fans. We will proudly distribute 100% of the auction’s proceeds to the selected charities, and we will continue to stand by our convictions to support those in need — which I think we can all agree is a core Neopian value.”
The collection depicts well-known and well-loved Neopian characters like King Altador, Queen Fyora, Dr. Sloth and more! Many of these never-before-seen pieces are adorned in ornate frames, making the perfect addition to any collector’s home. Further details will be provided on Neopets social media channels in the coming week.
