Safe Water for Haiti

Thank you Zynga players! By participating in the ChefVille charity promotion for Water.org you're helping build life-saving clean water projects in 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 diseases. 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.

Note: Zynga will donate its entire share of the purchase price of qualifying promotional purchases made with paid in-game currency to Water.org. Zynga will determine the amount to donate to Water.org by (1) calculating the aggregate value of purchases made using paid in-game currency (purchases made using earned in-game currency will not be included in this calculation) and (2) then applying an "exchange rate" to determine the value of the paid in-game currency in U.S. dollars. Zynga will then remit to Water.org 100% of the U.S. dollar value for qualifying purchases on Zynga.com and 70% of the U.S. dollar value for qualifying purchases on third-party platforms to reflect the 30% retained by the transaction processor when players purchase in-game currency. Player purchases are not tax-deductible. Promotion is anticipated to run from 3/10/2014 through 3/16/2014, but dates may vary.
