Donate Money to Haitian Relief Fund in FarmVille, Mafia Wars and Zynga Poker
The game’s publisher, Zynga, usually makes money from these games when you buy virtual goods. In FarmVille such as farm animals or tractors. Now you can donate money to a Haitian relief fund by buying white corn seeds for example. They work together with Boku, a mobile payments provider. The bill for the transaction will appear on your next cell phone bill. Zynga said yesterday that its earlier Haiti meals-for-kids program in FarmVille and other Zynga games had already generated $1.2 million in donations for Haitian kids. Hopefully, this kind of donation will be popular not only in a time of disaster, but during relative calm as well.
