[prMac.com] Riverside, California - From December 8th through Christmas day, all proceeds generated from the sale of Foozle on the App Store will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in memory of Steve Jones, who lost his battle with lung cancer yesterday. Steve was the father-in law of developer William Thurston. Anyone with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can download the game and know that the money generated from their purchase will be donated for Cancer Research.
He was being cared for in Monterey, CA and had at his bedside his loving family, including wife Rene and daughters Breanna and Jordan. I am married to Breanna, but I am still a college student and do not have the means to make a large donation in his name. I thought it best instead to donate all proceeds from Foozle for the iOS. Given the volume of sales that can be generated on the App Store, this has a far greater chance of raising money for Cancer Research than anything else I could do.
The game itself is a shape changing puzzle game that has received great reviews across the Internet including a 5 star rating from AppAdvice who said that Foozle "definitely carves a niche for itself." This is a fully produced high quality game that we've decided to give away all proceeds from in remembrance of an amazing father and husband.
A special thanks goes to Alejandro Rosa, and Veronica Rosa who also spent countless hours creating Foozle. They have also agreed to forgo their portion of sales for this special event.
