Freeze Tag Helps Plant 10,000 Trees for Earth Day Network
TUSTIN, CA, April 24, 2018 Freeze Tag (OTC:FRZT), a leading creator of location-based mobile social games, today announced that a fundraising effort by the company’s geolocation scavenger hunt game, Munzee, will result in the planting of 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project.
“As a company focused on geolocation gaming, preserving the outdoors is extremely important to us,” said Rob Vardeman, President of Freeze Tag, “The work the Earth Day Network does to protect and preserve the environment is unmatched. We’re proud of the response of our players across the world who have once again shown their commitment to worthy causes.”
To kick off our Earth Day Network fundraising effort, Freeze Tag began the sale of Earth Day Evolution special virtual game pieces in late March. Funds raised from these game pieces has been donated to the Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project, which strengthens communities through tree planting. Freeze Tag’s donation contributes to the Earth Day Network’s goal of planting 7.8 billion trees — one tree for every person on earth — in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020. According to the Earth Day Network, trees reverse the impact of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability.
These Earth Day Evolution game pieces started out as Seeds and, when deployed, evolved every 12 days until they reached their final phase as Trees on Earth Day – April 22, 2018. The Earth Day Evolution game pieces have so far been captured 352,311 times by Munzee players, with 21,398 of those captures happening on Earth Day alone. The temporary game pieces will remain on the map until May 13th, 2018.
Giving back to the community is a core value for Freeze Tag. Successful campaigns for charitable organizations over the past few years have included breast cancer awareness, ALS research, heart health and more. Freeze Tag has also recently announced a sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association as well.
