‘Global game for good’: Jaro, launches today, a new fundraising initiative set to raise a billion dollars for good causes. The public can get involved by playing online with the chance to win big as well as helping to raise US $1 billion split between charitable causes of your choice. The decision is entirely in the public’s hands.
Jaro aims to be the single largest fundraising initiative in the world and potentially the provider of the biggest single prize pot of money ever!
Ten leading charities including WSPA Australia have signed up to be beneficiaries of the game. Other charities include: Age UK, Amnesty UK, British Red Cross, Cool Earth, Guide Dogs UK, Merlin, World Cancer Research Fund, World Heart Foundation and WWF UK.
The launch of Jaro comes as figures released last month by PwC, Charity Finance Group and the Institute of Fundraising show that the economic conditions continue to prove challenging for charities.
Jaro.com costs US $10 (approx. GBP£6.40) to play and players choose how much of that is split between charity and a global prize pool for one lucky winner. Players then compete against real people across the globe in an online knockout tournament that works much like ‘numerical battleships’.
Funds raised for WSPA Australia will support our overall vision for animal welfare.
