Two weeks ago Farmville made a special white corn crop available for real money, and passed the proceeds on to Haiti relief efforts. In a news release, Zynga reports that they raised over $1 million. I think it’s a really amazing example of a game interface used to meet a real-world need. I also expect it’s fleeting, so if you know of any other online games that are doing something similar, please do let me know through a comment to this blog post.
