Give Until the Cows Come Home
Welcome, fellow gamers and givers! Thank you for joining us and turning your love for games into love for others — both at home and around the world — who need help!
Zynga.org has teamed up with Heifer International to make the world a better place through games. When you play your favorite Zynga game this holiday season, you're making a positive impact on the world at the same time. Now giving is as easy as playing the game!
Your generous donations through Zynga's games will go towards furthering Heifer's mission to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth. Zynga will donate 100 percent of its share of the sale of virtual goods in eight games, and thanks to a generous supporter, donations will be matched up to $400,000! The funds will be used to further Heifer's work in Malawi and the United States.
Here's what we do: Heifer provides communities in developing nations with gifts of livestock, training on how to turn that livestock into a multiplying source of food and income, and education on sustainable and earth-friendly practices.
When their animals reproduce, our partners become donors by giving those baby animals to someone else who needs them. Here at Heifer, we call that Passing on the Gift®, and it is the ultimate expression of what we believe in.
So thank you for playing, because now playing IS giving! Oh, What Fun!
