Zynga Participates in Apps for (RED), Joining App Store and (RED) in the Fight for an AIDS Free Generation
Zynga and Zynga.org are HONO(RED) to serve as a (PRODUCT)RED App Store partner, inspiring players in two of our flagship games to raise money and awareness to support the fight against AIDS. Through Sunday, December 7, FarmVille 2: Country Escape and CSR Racing are featured in the Apps for (RED) collection, giving players on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch the opportunity to purchase special, limited edition in-game items. For each purchase, 100% of the proceeds will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS – the recipient of all (RED) monies.
Since 2009, Zynga.org’s mission has been to connect players with opportunities to make the world a better place. Zynga players have shown the power of social games as a true platform for delivering positive impact in the real world. Over 5 million Zynga players have participated in 150 in-game campaigns supporting 50 charities and causes worldwide, including disaster relief, food security and education.
Available through December 7, here’s how players of FarmVille 2: Country Escape and CSR Racing on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can join in the fight against AIDS:
