WESTPORT, Conn. (December 21, 2012) - Angry Birds are catapulting into the holiday season by backing Save the Children's global education programs with the release of their new holiday song, "Fly Me Home Tonight." The Finnish game maker Rovio, creator of Angry Birds, announced the holiday promotion on its blog. People can download the song on iTunes and all proceeds will benefit Save the Children.
"We are delighted to have Angry Birds put the merry into this holiday season," said Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children. "We hope their promotion will inspire holiday givers to flock to iTunes to download the song."
Save the Children will use the funds to establish clubs for schoolchildren in developing countries. These clubs encourage kids to play and have fun, while also learning key life skills that will improve the quality of life for them and their families.
So, grow some wings and soar to the nearest iTunes and help support Save the Children. Every peck counts!
