Club Penguin has chosen once again to support Partners in the Horn of Africa through its annual Coins For Change program. Coins For Change, in its 7th year, inspires and encourages kids to make a positive difference, in their own communities and around the globe, through social media and virtual play. This year, players will work together donating their virtual coins earned playing games to unlock 10 charitable projects that will help children, families and animals around the world. Their generosity will help Partners build 10 school libraries next year.
Since 2007, Partners in the Horn of Africa has partnered with Club Penguin to build schools and school libraries, operate group homes for orphaned children, and support micro-finance programs for women. With Club Penguin’s support, we’ve now built 34 libraries in rural schools throughout Ethiopia.
Club Penguin is the #1 virtual world for children. Club Penguin works to maintain a fun and safe online entertainment experience by using filtering technology and live moderators. The award-winning virtual world of Club Penguin contains no third-party advertising and is free to use and enjoy, however a subscription membership provides access to additional feastures that enhance the play experience. Club Penguin, headquartered in Kelowna, is enjoyed by children around the world, and can be played in English, German, Portuguese, French and Spanish.
We believe that Coins for Change will help inspire the next generation to get involved in giving back. To take part in Club Penguin’s Coins For Change and support Partners In the Horn of Africa, go to www.clubpenguin.com December 19th through January 1st.
