"The Internet has become a major source of contributions by individuals," says March of Dimes Georgia State Director Mark Gibson. "We are excited to be a leader in ePhilanthropy and working with Game for Charity on this first-ever online game tournament. Utilizing the Internet to raise funds reduces costs and allows more of each dollar donated to go directly to the organization."
