Help Students Reach for the Stars in Cities Near and Far in CityVille 2
Every child deserves a great education. And every city, whether in the virtual world or the real world, deserves great schools – ones with amazing teachers, well-stocked libraries and adequate resources for classroom projects and enrichment.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case for every kid or every city. Today, there are too many schools that lack the resources to ensure students get the most out of their learning experience. As teachers and parents all over the world will attest, more resources for schools means a better education for the kids who need it most.
To help address these issues, CityVille 2 and Zynga.org are proud to partner with DonorsChoose.org and Global Fund for Women to provide funding for education and classroom projects both here in the U.S. and around the world. Starting today, CityVille 2 players will have the opportunity to support education projects globally, while improving their own virtual cities.
Players who want to support U.S. schools can purchase one of three items to benefit DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that posts classroom project requests from public school teachers across America. Players can purchase a graduation statue to support graduation-related projects, a student vegetable garden to support gardening projects and an outdoor learning workshop to support hands-on learning projects. One hundred percent of player purchases will support classroom projects featured on DonorsChoose.org.
For those players who prefer to support international education efforts, CityVille 2 is offering similar charitable items to benefit Global Fund for Women’s projects that improve education opportunities for women and girls. One hundred percent of player purchases of the Global Fund for Women statue, vegetable garden and outdoor learning workshop will support community-based, women-led organizations that further Global Fund for Women’s vision of an equitable and sustainable world in which women and girls have equal access to educational resources and opportunities.
Players who purchase an item to benefit DonorsChoose.org or Global Fund for Women will also gain reputation points to help progress their game play and increase their maximum population.
Check out CityVille 2 today and help DonorsChoose.org and Global Fund for Women improve education for all.
