Zynga Partners with Oxfam for 4th Annual Oh, What Fun! Holiday Campaign
Today we’re proud to kick off a very special campaign just in time for the holiday giving season. Oh, What Fun!, an in-game charitable campaign in select Zynga games, will give our players an easy and fun way to support Oxfam and their mission of providing lasting solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice throughout the month of December.
Now in its fourth year, the annual Oh, What Fun! campaign makes it easy for players to contribute to causes they care about by playing our games. Since 2012, Zynga players have raised millions of dollars for nonprofits during the holiday season. This year’s Oh, What Fun! campaign features festive in-game events and limited-edition items in the following games benefiting Oxfam.
Empires & Allies – Commanders, it’s time to stock up with surplus cache! From December 15 to January 2, purchased gold spent on surplus cache will benefit Oxfam.
