A few months ago, we talked about Wargaming's efforts to support War Child, a charity devoted to aiding victims of war-torn areas. Today, the World of Tanks developer was happy to announce the fruits of those efforts, which have resulted in a sizable check -- literally -- given to the charity.

A total of $84,800 will be going to the charity, which is billed as "the only specialist charity supporting children affected by conflict." Wargaming's Head of Military Relations Richard Cutland had this to add:

"As a retired soldier I have witnessed first-hand the remarkable and invaluable work that War Child do in areas affected by conflict. I am extremely proud of both Wargaming and our fabulous community for supporting this incredible and invaluable charity."

You can still donate to the charity if you wish. Congrats to Wargaming and its players for stepping up for a good cause.
