In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Big Fish is donating $225,000 to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF), to be paid on or before December 31, 2019. Big Fish also pledged an additional $25,000 toward in-kind activities for employees including assembling NBCF HOPE kits for 300 breast cancer patients across the country.
Big Fish is also running two free themed in-game events so players can join together and raise awareness too!

Why did Big Fish choose to support the cause for Breast Cancer?
We chose Breast Cancer Awareness for the Big Fish for a Cause campaign because breast cancer continues to be one of the leading health crises for women in the United States and the majority of our players are women, many of whom have shared their stories and inspired us.
We chose National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. ® for our donation because NBCF provides a number of great services and support, and they endeavor to help women in every stage of cancer from mammogram to diagnosis, to treatment, and after. NBCF uses 84 percent of its donations for programs that provide free mammograms for women in need, patient education, awareness campaigns and breast cancer research projects.
Does Big Fish take donations?
Big Fish is not accepting donations for this campaign.
