CrowdStar, a global leader in social gaming, today announced a partnership with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) to help raise money benefitting wildlife affected by the devastating BP oil spill.
In CrowdStar’s hit game, “Zoo Paradise,” players can buy a sea turtle, similar to the ones affected in the oil spill disaster, and then tell their friends about it on Facebook. Players advance in the game by caring for the turtle, feeding it, and helping it grow. Similarly, people can buy and care for a bottlenose dolphin in the game “Happy Aquarium,” or a sea duck in “Happy Pets.” Across all of CrowdStar’s games, people can purchase five different animals, with all net proceeds going directly to NWF’s ongoing efforts.
“We are proud to help the National Wildlife Federation in its work to save animals affected by the Gulf oil spill disaster,” said Niren Hiro, Chief Executive Officer, CrowdStar. “Our global audience cares deeply about this issue, and we’re pleased to provide an easy way for people to get involved and contribute while playing our games.”
“We’re thrilled to work with CrowdStar to drive more attention and donations to this urgent issue,” said Anne Senft, Vice President for Membership and Online Marketing at National Wildlife Federation. “By helping educate a global audience in an engaging and entertaining manner, while allowing people to easily donate, CrowdStar will enable millions of people to save wildlife affected by the disaster.”
