A Girl, Her Dog & A Truck Named Bubba"

Savannah, Georgia (PRWEB) December 30, 2011
The plan is for family game night to always provide a subtle strategy urging teams to remember that if everyone does a small part to "pay it forward", great accomplishments can be achieved.
The big game companies such as Hasbro, Mattel and Parker Brothers will always be there with great distribution. However, the small start-up known as Peas-Corp, continues to pursue a vision of building a giving-based business and serving as an example of what people can accomplish and how small business can benefit great causes.
In its 2nd year, Peas-Corp's flagship game, Whirled Peas is available across the USA in large retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Target.com and the company was able to provide support to several organizations in 2011. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for us to recognize the type of organizations that are community based and doing great things, but rely on private support to continue according to company founder, Kevin Werntz.
