Leading Casual Game Columbus Based Company Donates Portion of iPhone Game Profit this Holiday Season

"Hit iPhone farming game, Ranch Rush, by FreshGames, helps Action Against Hunger with a significant donation for the Thanksgiving and holiday season"

COLUMBUS, OH, November 25, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This Thanksgiving, FreshGames, a leading casual game company, is giving a portion of profits from sales of Ranch Rush, a popular casual farming game for Apple's iPhone, to Action Against Hunger, a global humanitarian group dedicated to saving the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with sustainable solutions to hunger. Thanks to FreshGames and Ranch Rush fans, more than $12,000 was raised for the organization.

"Action Against Hunger is very pleased to benefit from Ranch Rush's iPhone profits," said Geoffrey M. Glick, Action Against Hunger's Director of External Relations. "Sustainable farming techniques are a key component of our programs to provide long-term food security to families around the world, so the relationship with Ranch Rush is a great fit. We're grateful for FreshGames' support and contribution to our organization."

Ranch Rush, developed by Columbus-based FreshGames, started as a smash hit for PCs and Macs and became the first time management iPhone farming game. The company wanted to offer fans of the game the opportunity to enjoy Ranch Rush while supporting an important cause.

"By donating 20% of each Ranch Rush game purchased on the iPhone, we were able to contribute a significant amount to support Action Against Hunger's programs in more than 40 countries," FreshGames President Stephan Smith said. "Ranch Rush gamers who purchased the game via the iPhone not only got their favorite game to play anywhere, but they also contributed to a worthy charity. We're thrilled to be a small part of a global cause for the less fortunate, especially during the Thanksgiving season."

FreshGames will be launching Ranch Rush 2 in the upcoming months, which is expected to be equally popular with gamers. The sequel promises a tropical farming adventure with plenty of new surprises.
