Charity Offers Donations Via Used Video Games2 Dec, 2009 By: Billy Gil
New charity Donate Games is giving gamers the chance to help kids fighting rare and neglected diseases through the donation and selling of used video games.
Participants can mail their games to Donate Games or buy used games at DonateGames.org, with the proceeds going toward helping children and families as well as raising awareness about rare diseases.
“Our user-friendly model takes charitable giving to a whole new level of fun and interactivity, presenting families with a unique way to extend their holiday generosity,” said Jim Carol, CEO and founder of Donate Games, who founded the charity after his son, an avid gamer, developed a rare disease. “We’ve streamlined the process of raising rare disease support for hurting children who need our attention — and deserve our kindness during this season of giving.”
Donate Games is seeking partners with which to align itself, such as distribution channels and retailers. Interested parties can contact the organization through its Web site, DonateGames.org.
