Celebrating Safe Water
Thank you Zynga players! By participating in the Mafia Wars charity promotion for Water.org you're helping build life-saving clean water projects in Africa, Asia, Central America, and Haiti. A cause for celebration indeed. Water.org, a non-profit co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, and Zynga Inc., the world's leading social games company, are teaming up to bring clean water and a healthier, happier tomorrow to people around the world.
Today, nearly a billion people still lack access to safe water while 2.5 billion don't have a toilet. Shockingly four million people die each year from preventable water borne deceases. Water.org has worked for over twenty years with local partner organizations to deliver community-led, sustainable water and sanitation services to those living in poverty and struggling to survive the water crisis.
Water.org is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing clean drinking water and the dignity of a toilet to people in need. Co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org works with local partners to execute community-led, sustainable projects in Africa, South Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. For only $25, Water.org can bring one person clean water for life.

The amount donated to Water.org will be determined by calculating the aggregate value of purchases made using in-game currency. An “exchange rate” will be used to determine the value of the in-game currency in U.S. dollars. Zynga will then remit 70% of the U.S. dollar value for purchases to Water.org. The remaining 30% of the U.S. dollar value will be retained by Facebook. Player purchases are not tax-deductible. Offer is expected to run from 5/9 to 5/16. Dates for this promotion may vary.
