Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Discovery Bay Games, a leader in app-based game accessories, announced that their ongoing Play Together Pledge will now benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Now through March 31, 2012, Discovery Bay Games will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for every person who takes the Play Together Pledge on Discovery Bay Games’ Duo Games Facebook page, with a maximum donation of $10,000.
The Play Together Pledge, which launched in November 2011, expands on the company’s key messaging for their Duo™ product line, which encourages people to schedule time to play together through innovative iPad game accessories and apps. The Play Together Pledge reads “Today, I pledge to make a play date with my friends and family. We’re turning our free time into heads-up, together time.”
“We’re a company that believes in quality time with family and friends, whether through playing games or granting wishes,” said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. “We’re excited that the Make-A-Wish Foundation will now benefit from all the people taking the Play Together Pledge.”
“Wishes can be powerful experiences that make life better for kids battling a life-threatening medical condition and help bring families 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.”
