Surely, you've all received your commemorative School of Choice Hot Air Balloon in FarmVille, but it doesn't stop there. Zyngaannounced today that with the $200,000 we helped donate through gifting Haiti School Supplies in the Backpack for Haiti program, the company raised a total of $1 million for the School of Choice in Haiti. The company's official announcement explains how,

We discovered a few needles in our haystack and we are pleased to announce that the FarmVille community, plus a generous contribution from FaceBook Credits including a corporate gift from Zynga, altogether rose over $1,000,000 to build the School of Choice in Mirebalais, Haiti.

Zynga seems to have taken the Facebook Credit Sweet Beet purchases by the players along with a direct corporate donation of an undisclosed amount to clear $1 million raised for the school. This makes for a total of nearly $4 million raised for the Haitians since Oct. 2009. And it's thanks to virtual farmers like you for gifting and growing your little hearts out.

Where do you think Zynga should look next to send help through the power of web farming? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
