Swat Bugs, Save Lives?
Orkin, yes that Orkin, has released an application called Bug Battle for Apple products. They have announced that they will donate $10,000 to the Fight the Bite campaign by Nothing But Nets if 50,000 people download the app by February 28.
The game is a bit of a strange one to pair with Nothing But Nets as players have the option of uploading photos and swatting the heads of the person of their choice. Also, the description of the game does not mention this partnership with Nothing But Nets. Nevertheless, apps for a cause is something that can catch on. Especially when the do not cause anything.
