Today we issued an in-game letter announcing our decision to increase our Australian Flood Relief donation amount to 100% of the profits and calling for ideas for something we can do together to change the world.
With 6 million monthly players, we are the largest wildlife loving organization in human history! We went to leverage our mass and create something in Zoo World to do something positive for the animals we love. We need your help! Ask each other, what can 6 million people do to make a difference?
Some examples of things we could implement in Zoo World would be Google Image Labeler , which used manpower to complete the daunting task of tagging all internet images in a matter of months by turning it into a fun game, EteRNA , where you help scientists understand life at the cellular level, or FreeRice.com , which has a partner donate 10 grains of rice for every vocabulary quiz passed.
While we don’t have a benevolent partner other than you, our awesome users, we still think we can do something great while making it fun! The idea doesn’t necessarily have to deal with all of us donating money to an animal oriented charity, but could also use our sheer manpower to spread awareness or a message. We know you are creative and compassionate!
What can we do to save endangered species or help animal shelters support the abandoned? How can we make sure the world is sustainable so that our children and their children can see all the awe-inspiring creatures that we love today? There are no wrong answers; please share your ideas with us by commenting here!
Thank you, we’re so excited!
