Arctic Startup has reported earlier last week that following the announcement of the sale of 51% of Supercell's shares to Gungho and Softbank for $1.5 billion, company's employees amassed €3.4 million from donations. This sum will go "towards the construction of a new children’s hospital in Meilahti". "Donations also came in from San Francisco, Tokyo and Seoul as employees showed an extraordinary level of generosity."

"The original children’s hospital was built in 1946 and is now in a very run down state which has made the construction of a replacement something of a necessity. The support association for the children's hospital have set a target of €30 million to go towards the total cost of the construction and this is the single largest donation the building fund has received increasing the total raised so far to about €13 million." This is amazing news taking into account that they had only aimed to raise €6 million this year.

This is great news and act of generosity from Supercell right in time for Christmas!
