Mellow Militia Partners with The Surfers Healing Foundation for Autism, Donating Tiki Toss 3D Profits to the Cause
Delray Beach, FL-- November 11, 2010-- Mellow Militia, developers of Tiki Toss 3D, will be aligning with The Surfers Healing Foundation for Autism to donate 2% of Tiki Toss 3D’s profits to the cause. The makers of this relaxing beach-side, hook-and-ring-toss game for iPhone and iPod touch will also be donating an iPad and six custom-painted surfboards for auction at The Surfers Healing Art Benefit and an iPod touch to The Surfing Santa Contest on November 20, 2010 in Southern California.
Tiki Toss 3D is a digital rendition of the classic beach and bar game. A metal ring, tied to a rope, dangles from a branch overhead. Players ‘swing’ the ring with a swipe of their finger and try to catch it on a mounted hook. Along with realistic animations and 3D graphics, the addictive gameplay delivers fun and relaxation with a dash of competition thrown in. Players can track their high scores on global leaderboards and challenge their friends via Facebook and Twitter.
The Surfers Healing Foundation was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowtiz and is dedicated to helping autistic children find respite through surfing. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three and like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload. A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea and took to the waters with Isaiah on the front of his board. The two spent the day surfing together and Israel realized that surfing had a profound impact on his son. He discovered that this unique surfing therapy could be highly beneficial to autistic children. After the experience with Isaiah, Israel and Danielle decided to begin hosting day camps at the beach for autistic children and their families, helping them discover the healing effect surfing has on children with the disorder.
“The healing powers of the sun, water, and sand are undeniable and real. This truly relaxing therapy that Israel and Danielle discovered to benefit autistic children is phenomenal and inspiring and we love being a part of it,” says Kyle McGetrick, Co-Founder of Mellow Militia.
“Supporting the Surfers Healing cause is extremely important to us, both as parents and as surfers,” says Chris Puglisi, Co-Founder of Mellow Militia.
Mellow Militia joins Hawthorn Cat, Paskowitz Surf Camp, and Variety, a children’s charity in Southern California to support this cause. Information on The Surfers Healing Art Benefit and The Surfing Santa Contest can be found on the The Surfers Healing Foundation for Autism website.
