LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading mobile game maker, Jam City, announced its partnership with Panda Pop super fan and pro football star, Ty Montgomery, for a Panda Pop Save the Babies Event. Teaming up with Ty to support foster care families, Jam City will be donating $15,000 to the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families in his honor. Ty will be challenging his Green Bay teammates and other professional football players to rescue the baby pandas in Panda Pop, the world's most popular bubble shooter game. Kicking off on Ty's 25th birthday, for every 25 levels these pro players complete in Panda Pop between January 22-29, Jam City will donate an additional $2,500.
"Ty Montgomery makes a difference for his team every time he's on the field. Now he's channeling his passion for Panda Pop toward making a difference in the lives of foster care children through our Save the Babies event," said Josh Yguado, Co-Founder, President and COO of Jam City. "Jam City is very proud to join Ty and the Coalition for Children, Youth and Families to bring the helping spirit of Panda Pop to foster children and their families."
Along with being a talented and dedicated Panda Pop player, Ty Montgomery is a fleet-footed running back for the NFL's Green Bay Packers. After starring at Stanford as a wide receiver, he was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft. In 2016, he switched to running back to fulfill a team need, showing his team spirit and readiness to help others around him.
"Panda Pop is my go-to game and it's a great pleasure to work with Jam City to use my off-the-field pastime to benefit those in need," said Ty Montgomery. "Once you start playing Panda Pop you don't want to stop, so I know my teammates will come through for this challenge to earn additional resources for the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families."
Based in Wisconsin, the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families supports people who are changing lives through foster care and adoption by connecting them to information, training, and support they need to succeed. Its mission is to inspire, inform and support individuals and families caring for children touched by foster care and adoption.
"Ty Montgomery is one of our strongest supporters and on behalf of the foster care children and families who benefit from our services, we welcome this generous contribution from Jam City and Panda Pop," said Oriana Carey, CEO of the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families. "This Panda Pop event will help us carry out our mission so let's go, Packers—save those panda babies!"
