#T4GPlaymob

Finalist, 2016

Playmob is a single platform that makes fundraising simple for game developers and brands, whilst raising awareness for their chosen charity. Once a game studio or business has been paired with their ideal charity partnership, they can set up a campaign through Playmob, and gamers can begin donating within hours, through social good links.
