Giving Back via Greeting Games(March 20, 2014)
Rotterdam, Netherlands and Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Tingly Games, founded by veterans in the game industry, is launching a brand new set of Greeting Games created exclusively for two charities: Just a Drop, for World Water Day, and SOS Childrens Villages for feeding children. Starting this week, senders will be able to create fun mini-games as greetings to send to friends and family members as a way of benefitting one of the two charities via greetinggames.com.
We just recently launched Greeting Games to the public and have received amazing feedback, said Ard Bonewald, CEO of Tingly Games, the parent company for Greeting Games. Teaming up with charities is a natural fit for us since we can tailor games to meet the charity or other partners needs. Just a Drop and SOS Childrens Villages, are our first charities to support, but we hope to work with many more. The charities will not only be raising funds but they will be using Greeting Games as a fun and interactive way to spread their important messages.
For every card purchased in aid of Just a Drop, one child will have safe drinking water for up to six years; and every card bought for SOS Childrens Villages will provide one child with a home-cooked meal.
Senders can personalize their cards by selecting from a range of game types such as Bubble Shooter, Mahjong, Jigsaw Puzzle and Sudoku. They can also add personal comments at the end of each level, set the difficulty level of the game and include their Facebook avatar.
"We are delighted to be working with Tingly Games, said Divya Patel, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser for SOS Childrens Villages. The idea of sending a Greeting Game to friends and family members aligns wonderfully with our unique concept of placing orphaned and abandoned children around the world under the care of an SOS mother in an SOS Childrens Village.
Kelly Railton, Head of Fundraising from Just a Drop said, "This is an amazing new endeavour for Just a Drop. The funds raised will make a huge difference to the people we support. It will help bring them clean, safe water that will change and save lives. Thanks in advance to all of those people who send a Greeting Game, and in doing so donate 60% of the net-revenues to Just a Drop."
Both campaigns will run through the end of April. Both are also supported by Give8-Bit and its parent company, Playmob, a tech company specializing in charitable fundraising through games. http://www.playmob.com
