Northern, WI 03/24/2014 (usastockreport) – The Initiative

Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) has started an initiative in which the poker players from March 13 can contribute 15% of their winning to water.org. The organization is known for working hard in area of providing water to Africa, South Asia and Central American countries. As we all know though water constitutes 71% of the Earth. But most of them are sea water so not potable and the outcome is that around 780 billion people (That is more than double of US population) have no access to clean water. Which itself speak about the condition of our world.

Water.Org contribution to the World

Water.org is a charitable foundation established by Gary White and Matt Damon. They are working in the area of providing potable water in poor countries. In the year 2013, with the contribution from Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) poker players 10 new wells were dug in Ethiopia. This year they want to dig more that will make life easy for many people and communities in Ethiopia.

You can display your excellent poker skills and while enjoying most you can raise money for the water.org a charitable organization. This gives the excellent opportunity to do something for the society while enjoying the thing you love most. They have to activate the Water.org charity pot helping hands feature.

Contribution of Zynga

If by the March 27, 2014 2 trillion chips are collected in charity pot, the Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) will donate the $100,000 to which will take total Zynga contribution to $1 million. This is good enough to provide drinking water to around 2.8 million people.

Since its inception in 2007, 350 million people have been part of the Zynga Poker. If we go number wise it itself is a population equivalent to many countries. So together they can make the big difference by even contributing small amount and be the part of the thing which is for greater common cause.

It is good to see such type of things happening and it will encourage other websites to follow the suit. Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) has started a vey noble scheme and it will change the perception of the gaming sites. This will be an advantage to the company.
