Zynga and World Food Programme fight against hunger in FrontierVille, YoVille and more
In Zynga's relentless campaign of philanthropy, the company are now donating a portion of the proceeds from special items in FrontierVille, Zynga Poker, YoVille and Treasure Isle to the UN World Food Programme's (WFP) WeFeedBack Program. For the next eight days, players can buy these limited edition items for varying amounts of paid currency, most or all of which will go to WFP.
Check behind the cut for more details on how this limited time charity event is being handled across these four Zynga games.
Until Oct. 21, players can buy Red Mystery Animal Crates in FrontierVille for 25 Horseshoes, or about $3, and receive one of seven Red Mystery Animals: a Quail, Hedgehog, Rabbit, Alpaca, Ferret, Squirrel and Deer. For every adorable, scarlet critter purchased, Zynga will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to WFP.
As for Zynga Poker, it seems that only "a portion of every [chip and Gold] purchase supports the World Food Programme," according to the game's purchase page. More specifically, Zynga Poker players can purchase a special $2 package of poker chips, with Zynga contributing 100% to WFP. Not to mention players who purchase any other package of chips in the game, will be contributing $1 to WFP.
In Treasure Isle, players have the option to purchase a Red Cup Cruiser for 35 Island Cash, or about $6, 100 percent of which will go straight to WFP. Plus, the Cruiser will boost your max Energy by 3; not too bad a deal for a donation. Lastly, buying a limited edition WFP Teddy Bear in YoVille will cause Zynga to donate 100 percent of the proceeds to WFP. So, now that you have four ways to donate to hungry kids around the globe, what reason is there not to give?
