Discovery Bay Games, a leader in app-based game accessories, today announced a fundraising campaign to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America in an effort to raise $10,000 to support their philanthropic efforts. The campaign, entitled “10,000 Likes to Support Wishes,” runs through the month of October. For every person who “Likes” the Duo Games Facebook page, Discovery Bay Games will donate $1 to the Foundation, up to $10,000, to help grant wishes.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
“Giving back to the community has always been important to us,” said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. “In keeping with our own mission, we support like-minded charities that bring friends and family together to create memorable experiences. Through this campaign, we are giving the Facebook community a simple way to make a difference.”
“Wishes can be powerful experiences that make life better for kids battling against a life-threatening medical condition and help bring families back together during a very stressful and challenging time in their lives,” said David A. Williams, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. “Our goal is to grant every medically eligible child a wish and this type of support helps provide us with the resources needed to continue reaching more kids in need.”
