Have Fun at Play2Cures Casual Games Fundraising Site

Taylor Carol, was a typical 11-year-old boy. When he got hit by a pitch during a baseball game in March 2006, his world turned upside down. Follow-up testing revealed something more ominous than an injured elbow - the blood cancer leukemia.

During the long grueling months that Taylor was fighting for his life, his father, software designer Jim Carol focused his energy on finding a way to help Taylor and other children going through a similar ordeal. The result: Pledgeplay (www.pledgeplay.com), an innovative, customizable online casual games and fundraising platform. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launched Play2Cures (lls.play2cures.org), which employs the Plegeplay platform and allows participants to play casual games online while donating money to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

The site works by allowing players to purchase online tokens - $1 per token and a minimum of $10 - to play the games, such as solitaire and miniature golf. Each token purchased will help fund blood cancer research, provide critical information and support to patients and their families and help LLS advocate for issues impacting patients. Players have a choice of five games, with more to come. Tokens can be given to friends and family.
