Help earn money for women and their families through games.
So, you're busy, but you wish there was time to help a charity. What if you could play a videogame and do exactly that? Thanks to a partnership between MSN Games and YWCA, a charity focusing on providing job and skill training, housing and shelter assistance, domestic violence recovery, child care, and leadership development to women and their families.
There are serveral ways to take part, starting with playing the monthly game at the Playing For A Cause page. Microsoft will donate a dollar for each MSN Games badge you earn when playing -- Zuma in July, Luxor in August.
You can also download and purhase the featured game, which includes titles such as Luxor, Zuma, Diner Dash 2 and more. This nets $1 for the YWCA each time a game is purchased.
MSN Games and the YWCA USA are also teaming to host live events in Seattle, Washington (July 27-28), San Francisco, California (August 4-5) and Bloomington, Minnesota (11-12). At these events, individuals can play for as long as the like, and MSN Games will donate a dollar for each minute played.
