The multimedia streaming platform is giving back and encouraging members to do the same.
MONTREAL, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Playster, the world's first all-in-one entertainment app, is extremely proud to announce its pledge to donate at least $100,000 per year to the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) charity.
All new Playster members are encouraged to support the non-profit organization, which matches at-risk kids with caring mentors, by adding an optional monthly donation to their subscription package with the click of a button. Starting as low as $1.25/month, Playster is making it easier than ever to give back to local communities with 100 per cent of donations going towards BBBS efforts.
"As a self-funded charitable organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters relies on communities to help support our much-needed programs," says Francesca Corso, a local BBBS executive director. "Thanks to the generosity of Playster and their subscribers, BBBS will provide mentors to children and youth. We want to ensure that these kids have a positive childhood and that they are given the chance to develop and achieve their full potential."
BBBS pairs children with mentors who offer a listening ear, encouragement and all-around fun with outings ranging from paintball games to science museum trips. Members' donations will help fund activity programs, as well as background checks for mentors.
"We see Playster as a family product, offering shared experiences that are as inspiring and educational for children as they are for adults," says Playster CEO Philip Keezer. "BBBS has been doing incredible work for over a century and we're delighted to support a charity that has a strong, positive influence on young people's lives."
