YANUA International, presenters of the mobile game Saving
Pandas, announced today they will
celebrate Giant Pandas in Washington, D.C., in August by fundraising to
donate to Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ). For every download of
Saving Pandas from August 13 to August 22, YANUA will donate $1 to FONZ.
Saving Pandas will then be available for free from August 23 to
September 1. During a month of much “panda-monium” throughout the city,
Saving Pandas will also participate with panda-themed events,
promotions, prizing and more.
Saving Pandas, recently launched in collaboration with the Chengdu
Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding where First Lady Michelle Obama
visited earlier this spring, is a fun and interactive game that
challenges players of all ages to use their skills to overcome
obstacles, hurdles and enemies on unfriendly planets to save baby pandas
which have been abducted by space aliens. The game’s characters are
inspired by five real-life Giant Pandas whose home is the Chengdu Panda
Base. Facts about Giant Pandas in the game help to educate players and
remind everyone about the importance of caring for the well-being and
conservation of one of the world’s most loved animals.
Saving Pandas will further celebrate by partnering with the historic
Hay-Adams, who supports the conservation cause as well. The exclusive
Hay-Adams promotion features an array of Saving Pandas activities
including gameplay available on iPad® in the hotel’s business center,
Saving Pandas merchandise giveaways, panda-themed welcome amenities and
a specialty cocktail in the hotel’s lounge, Off The Record.
"We are delighted that Saving Pandas is participating in the celebration
of Giant Pandas in Washington, D.C., with FONZ. We are equally delighted
to be collaborating with The Hay-Adams in promoting this important
cause," said Dr. Richard Helfer, Chairman of YANUA International. "We
want this to bring further awareness on the topic of Giant Panda
conservation and the incredible work being accomplished at the Chengdu
