A big thank you to Presbyterian Ladies’ College, who were the the first school in Australia to launch the World Charity Cup global video game competition in support of local charities.

At PLC Middle School Assembly on Tuesday 25 November, students were introduced to the free video game, The Adventures of Ai, and allowed to download it to take part in the World Charity Cup. They were then allowed to use personal mobile devices at School during lunchtime on Thursday 27 November and to play the game to kickstart the campaign and win some great prizes!

The Adventures of Ai is an e-­book written by international entrepreneur and New York Times best-­selling author Craig Bouchard. The story was written for his 4 daughters and is part non-fiction and part fiction fantasy designed to prepare pre-­teens for the pressures they will encounter as they grow up. Incorporating art, history, poetry, music and mathematics, it encourages children to unlock their potential.

The book also has a corresponding video game which is based on the novel and is available to download for Apple iOS, android and Kindle devices. This is what we’d love you to download and play, as every time that you play for Australia and earn points in the game, you have the chance to raise money for charities right here in Australia!

This means that whenever you play the game, you can make a true difference in the world, and help sick or disadvantaged children in your country. The charities in Australia that will benefit from you playing the game and scoring points are: The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation and Sony Foundation Australia.
