At Lumi Games we believe in giving back to others, and be about more than just the bottom line and business. That is why we launched Play for Charity (our own charitable branch) soon after we founded the company, as a way for us to bring joy to other people in more ways than just with our games. The idea is that we will donate a percentage of the revenue we get from one of our games to a charity or charitable cause. Each game will we release will be tied to a specific charity (although some games may share a charity). You can read below which game is currently associated with which charity. As for right now we are only looking into national organizations (in Norway) as that is easier for us, communication wise but also because we are more familiar with this, but in the future we will be looking to expand and become a global giving charity as well.
Definition of charity: ” An organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need“
