Zynga Enables Donations To Tsunami Relief Through In-Game Purchases
Social gaming giant Zynga has joined the Internet’s efforts at donating to Japanese Tsunami relief, by enabling in-game donations through Zynga games like FrontierVille, FarmVille and CityVille as of 7pm PST tonight. 100% of the purchase of the purchase price will be donated to Tsunami relief charities.
From the Zynga release:
“Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children Emergency Fund is doing amazing work to help those families in Japan affected by last night’s tragedy. Beginning at 7pm PT tonight, Zynga is partnering with Save the Children to raise money for the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children Emergency Fund by enabling donations through special in-game purchases across a number of our most popular games, including CityVille (the game’s first .org campaign), Farmville, Zynga Poker, FrontierVille, and CafeWorld.
Players can also donate directly by clicking on Save the Children buttons on Words With Friends and the zBar, the bar that sits across the top of your Zynga game on Facebook. Facebook is joining the effort by donating Facebook Credits to support this initiative. 100 percent of the purchase price of the virtual items included in this initiative will go to Save the Children.”
Those interested can also donate outside of the games here.
