Shot Online Hosts Holiday Charity Event with all Proceeds going to the SOS Children’s Village Organization
San Jose-based online game publisher, GamesCampus, announced today that it is hosting a special in-game holiday charity event through its game Shot Online. In the true spirit of the holidays, GamesCampus will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of two custom in-game Shot Online golf items to children in need through the SOS Children’s Village organization.
SOS Children’s Village is an international non-government, social development organization that has been active in the field of children’s rights and committed to children’s needs and concerns since 1949. In 132 countries and territories worldwide, their activities focus on children without parental care and children of families in difficult circumstances.
“During this rough economy we are glad that Shot Online’s donations will be able to help children in need,” said David Chang, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for GamesCampus.com. “We invite our players to come and join in this season of giving, while also enjoying some special offers and gifts from GamesCampus as a way of wishing everyone a peaceful and happy holiday season.”
From December 22 through December 28, 2008, players will be able to make donations to the SOS Children’s Village by purchasing SOS Children’s Village golf balls and Children Love t-shirts for $1.00 each from the game’s item mall. Both the t-shirts and golf balls are specially marked with the SOS Children’s Village logo and in-game characters can actually wear the t-shirts and play Shot Online with the special golf balls. All of the proceeds from the charity event will be donated to the SOS Children’s Village by Gamescampus.com.
Players who purchase both the SOS Children’s Village game balls and Children Love t-shirts will also qualify for a special drawing for additional prizes. One lucky winner will receive exclusive adaptable clothing set including shirt, pants and a hat. One hundred additional winners will also receive three lucky mystery prize boxes.
In addition to the Shot Online charity event, GamesCampus is hosting several other holiday promotions for players of Shot Online and its MMORPG, Asda Story.
