Aunt Arctic
Season's greetings, I'm glad you're here!
We’re preparing a community feast to celebrate Coins For Change.
That’s when the whole island donates and volunteers to support charities.
If you’re looking to save for the occasion, gather collectibles like these Crystal Snowflakes.
Don’t forget, come back December 6th to kick-off the festivities.

Aunt Arctic
Welcome to Coins For Change. Ready to change the world?
Donate coins at these stations to add to the community total.
Our donations support charities that make the holidays better for children in need
The celebration feast is almost ready. The last shipment of food and gifts is on the way.
Gary the Gadget Guy
Aunt Arctic, The hot sauce reservoir can’t handle the load of all these lights.
We’ll need extra power from somewhere...
A-ha! We can harness the kinetic energy of dancing!
Every dancing penguin will charge our back-up battery.
Check the power meter here to see our progress.
For the good of the holidays, it’s imperative that you, ahem, “bust a move.”

The dialogue alternated depending on whether or not Ep. 10 - Skyberg Assault had been completed. Alternate versions are colored.

Aunt Arctic
Happy holidays! Coins For Change is going very well.
The community is really dedicated to hitting our donation goals
Soon, we’ll have our celebration feast. The last shipment is here and is waiting to be unpacked.
Herbert P. Bear
Bwa ha ha ha ha!
Look, Klutzy, they’ve decorated my island! And is that a gift?
It would be rude not to accept.
Aunt Arctic
I’m quite sure we destroyed that base already.
Herbert P. Bear. How dare you attack us during the holidays.
Herbert P. Bear
You won’t be so lucky with the new model, aunty.
MUHAHA!
Thanks, penguins! Here’s my gift to you--
Leave the island, and I’ll return your precious presents.
Aunt Arctic
Keep calm. We can’t allow Herbert to frighten our citizens into leaving.
Hit these targets to redecorate
With teamwork, we can replace all the decorations Herbert took.
I’ll track the decoration coverage here. Soon, the island will be in fine holiday form again.

Character Dialogue
Aunt Arctic
Let’s ensure Herbert can’t interfere any more with the holidays.
Prepare for Operation Whiteout.
Collect Crystal Snowflakes and Ice Crystals, then bring them to the Exchange.
We’ll use them to create a massive snowfall. The poor weather will prevent Herbert from flying in again.

Aunt Arctic
I’m afraid the community feast won’t fair well without food.
We could power up the Crate Co. beacons to light the way for some last minute deliveries.
It will require the whole community working as a team. Let’s get started.

Aunt Arctic
Well done. Despite Herbert’s theft, we’ve made ourselves a lovely holiday meal.
Please, have a seat.
Gary the Gadget Guy
Huh? Did one of my inventions just malfunction?
Aunt Arctic
Well, this is festive.
Gary the Gadget Guy
Astounding! I did not expect Herbert to return the gifts.
Aunt Arctic
I suppose anything is possible during the holidays.
Moments earlier...
Herbert P. Bear
Bah! Those flightless fools are going to stay on their island?
Ah! That’s a good minion, Klutzy. What did you get me?
WHAT!? NO! The confetti will jam the engines!
To the escape pod!
Back to the present...
Gary the Gadget Guy
I’m not detecting anything abnormal. They are genuine gifts.
Aunt Arctic
Thank goodness. Our community deserves this.
I want to thank everyone for their admirable work to create this holiday feast.
Despite setbacks from a certain villainous bear, Coins for Change has been a huge success.
Please take this as a token of the whole community’s gratitude. And happy holidays!

Trivia

  • Prior to the event, a bear sighting warning was issued on the Island News Blog, stating that players should keep an eye out and shout out phrases such as “Seriously, Herbert, why can’t you let us have a holiday party in peace?” as well as get help from Aunt Arctic and Jet Pack Guy.[3]
  • Construction began at Island Central for the Coins For Change community feast on November 29, 2017, as part of the 1.8 update rollout.
  • This event coincided with the beta release of Club Penguin Island on PC and Mac.
  • The 1 million coins donation target was reached less than 24 hours after the party's launch.[4]
  • Once 9,999,999 coins were given to Coins for Change, the billboard at the donation station was broken because there were no more number slots.
  • It began to snow on the island on December 16, 2017 because of Operation Whiteout.
  • From December 19, 2017 until the end of the event, every player could obtain the Fluffcake Slice, Candy Cane, Squid Stick, Pizza Slice, and Hot Cocoa Party Supplies from the feast table.
