A Home Away From Home


Zynga’s Mafia Wars has teamed up with the Fisher House Foundation to help provide a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes provide temporary free lodging so families can be close to their loved ones during a medical crisis.
To help the Fisher House Foundation, we have released two special Limited Edition items for purchase - theFamily Beach (223/158) and the Housing Volunteer (163/228). These are available for a limited time starting at2:00 AM on Feb 27th 2013 PST until March 6th 2013, 23:59 PST.

 As a token of our appreciation, the highest individual contributor for this event will feature in the game as a Non Playing Character- The Philanthropist.  
Here are few important points to keep in mind:
