Hasbro, a company known for toy brands such as My Little Pony, Transformers, and Nerf as well as their tabletop game branch Wizards of the Coast, has announced something cool. Because the Community Chest cards for Monopoly, one of the classic games owned by Hasbro, are being updated, the company is hosting a for-charity game of Monopoly with a star-studded group of celebrity players.

From the announcement by Hasbro:

From March 18 through April 9, 2021, Monopoly asked their fans to help reflect what community meant in their real lives by voting for new Monopoly Community Chest cards. With the biggest voting turnout in Monopoly history, the iconic board game received more than six million votes from consumers for the new Community Chest cards, reaching 50% more votes than the Token Vote in 2017.
