Read on to find out about Fish For Hunger 2019.
The event begins May 6th!
Palringo’s worked with some fantastic charities over the six years we have been running our annual charity campaign. We’ve worked with organisations like Action Against Hunger and Islamic Relief, and have managed to raise over $1,000,000, while helping out those across the world most in need. This year, we’re once again teaming up with Action Against Hunger and Islamic Relief for Fish for Hunger 2019. We’ll have unique items for Fishing Bot, a tournament, special Ramadan and charity Charms, and more throughout the month!
Over 4,000,000 Million Special Items Caught!
You helped raise over $179,000 for Islamic Relief and Action Against Hunger! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Fish for Hunger 2019
Some of your may remember that last year we had Hunt for Hunger that raised a massive $150,000! All your amazing efforts went to help people who needed it most. Fish for Hunger introduces 12 Action Against Hunger-themed items that you will be able to catch in Fishing Bot. We’ve set a global total of 4,000,000 Fishing Items for you all to collect, unlocking Achievements, Charms, and special offers along the way.
While we had birds last year, we’ve done something a little different this year.
We worked with Action Against Hunger to create items inspired by their aid efforts. Over Ramadan, you will find 12 of these Action Against Hunger-themed items in Fishing Bot.
