Video: Direct Relief thanks Zynga, Mafia Wars players for Japan relief

You know, sometimes it feels good be a Mafia Wars player. OK, so it feels good all the time, but especially so in cases when a major international relief organization thanks you for potentially making a difference through play. Direct Relief International has posted a video directly thanking Zynga and you, the Mafia Wars community, for collectively donating about $1.5 million to the cause in Japan across six cash grants, says Direct Relief's Brett Williams. So, make today a good Thursday, and pat yourself on the back if you donated through Mafia Wars. If not, I'm sure there's still time.

Did you donate to the cause when Zynga released the option in Mafia Wars? What's your preferred method to donate to social good or relief campaigns? Do you appreciate what social games are doing in that space? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
