Snow Day Sudoku App Developer Donates $1 per Download
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (December 7, 2010) - Play Sudoku, give clean water to those in need, and see the results. From now until December 31st, iPhone/iPad game developer Bad Weasel, LLC is donating $1 to The Water Project, Inc. for every purchase of “Snow Day Sudoku”. With the funds raised, The Water Project will provide clean, safe water to communities in Sierra Leone who today suffer needlessly without it.
“We’re excited that Bad Weasel has chosen to get involved in our work in such a generous way,” says Peter Chasse, President and Founder of The Water Project, Inc. “We love it when companies like Bad Weasel come up with creative ways to raise money and to help spread the word about the need for safe water around the world.”
A unique feature of the campaign is that users of the game will be able to see the actual water project their purchase helps build, right from within the app. Updates from Sierra Leone will contain pictures, maps and community comments about the water well project as they come in from the field next year. “Too often, so-called ’give back’ campaigns never allow the purchaser to see the results, ” says Michael Smith of Bad Weasel. “Showing the impact that these donations make is important. It helps ensure integrity and it proves that small acts can make a big difference.” In fact, a $1 donation can on average supply clean water to one person for a year or more.
Snow Day Sudoku is available now for just $1.99 on Apple’s App Store and runs on the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. It is currently featured in the “Holiday Games” section of the app store.
The Water Project, Inc. is a Charlotte, NC based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water. Globally, nearly 1 billion people lack a safe and reliable source of water. The Water Project is working to change that by funding local efforts to build and repair wells in five countries, including Sierra Leone.
