Mission Against Terror Fights On with Special Charity Campaign for Gamers Outreach
TORONTO, ON January 7, 2011—Mission Against Terror (M.A.T.), everyone's favorite
free-to-play shooter from Wicked Interactive, today announced that it is extending
its campaign with Gamers Outreach to benefit the wounded soldiers at Dallas Veterans
Affairs Medical Center.
Beginning in December, Wicked Interactive has been donating $1(USD) to Project GO
Kart for every new account created in Mission Against Terror. Project GO KART is
a division of Gamers Outreach that funds the construction of portable entertainment
kiosks which are used to transport video games and other sources of entertainment
to patients who have limited access to activities outside their rooms.
"Wicked Interactive's campaign is very generous," said Zach Wigal, Executive Director,
Gamers Outreach. "Downloading the game and creating a character is an incredibly
easy way for people to support the Dallas, Texas VA Hospital, and help us get them
a GO Kart!"
"We are not going to rest until we have achieved this goal for Gamers Outreach,"
added Sam Ho, Director, Wicked Interactive. "We owe our freedom to these brave men
and women. The least we can give them is a few minutes of our time to get involved
in this campaign."

by storm, after becoming quite popular in Asia and other parts of the world.
