2010 Christmas promotion:

Through December 31 2010, Bad Weasel Games donated $1 to The Water Project for each copy of Snow Day Sudoku sold! We were able to raise enough money to fund the repair of broken down or open pit wells in communities in Sierra Leone.  Thanks to everyone who purchased the app during the Christmas season 2010!  You helped make a difference in the lives of people around the world.

The Water Project is a US-based non-profit committed to providing clean, safe drinking water to those who suffer needlessly without it.  Nearly one billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Dirty water causes illnesses such as diarrhea and typhoid. Diarrhea alone kills 1.8 million children each year. Unsafe water causes a cycle of sickness and poverty and communities struggle to teach their children, grow food, go to school and earn a living.  Check out The Water Project at thewaterproject.org/badweasel.
