Even though the Village & Pillage hype is still going strong, there’s still news to be shared relating to last year’s Update Aquatic. The 2019 Webby Awards have been given out, and Minecraft’s Coral Crafters project is one of the winners!
#Minecraft won at the #Webbys! So awesome to see the Coral Crafters effort recognized once again. Blessed to have been a part. Our coral reefs are important! 🐠🌊 https://t.co/T8EpkTcUGf @TheWebbyAwards @Chupacaubrey @stacysays @Rabahrex @Minecraft @215mccann pic.twitter.com/ZjZuAI1IE2

Last year, a team of YouTubers and Mojangsters teamed up with The Nature Conservancy to raise funds, awareness, and create new coral structures for the Cozumel, Mexico reefs to help enhance the diverse life in the area. Rabahrex, Logdotzip, and Stacyplays were among the team that helped get the project done, and not only did they succeed in their goals of donating $100,000 to The Nature Conservancy, but now they can chalk a Webby Award (for “Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign”) on the list of accomplishments, too!
We think that it’s simply fantastic that Coral Crafters was such a huge success last year, and it’s a well-earned award. Check out the video below to learn some more of the details about the program. If you like the idea of Minecraft being involved in more projects like this one in the future, stick around! We’ll share every bit of news about upcoming events and campaigns that Mojang launches right here on SnapshotMC.
Congratulations to everyone involved! We hope this inspires you to run many more charitable projects like this one, or even bigger! 🙂
