A time to give back to the innocents orphaned by war

Take an orphan under your wing, perform the tasks you are presented with and you’ll show one of Azeroth’s children that you care!

Many orphans wish they had someone special to show them the wonders of the world. Throughout the year, they often spend their time wandering around their home cities of Stormwind or Orgrimmar, dreaming of the day they'll be old enough (and big enough) to venture out into the world to see the sights their parents would have shown them.

Entertainment

Visit famous landmarks

Talk to either Orphan Matron Nightingale in Stormwind (Alliance) or Orphan Matron Battlewail in Orgrimmar (Horde). After that, you’ll be able to take your young friend on an adventure across the lands of Azeroth and Outland, and bring them back to the orphanage!

By participating in the festivities of this event, you can earn special gifts and goodies.
