In an effort to show support for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, FarmVille developer Zynga has partnered with Direct Relief International to allow players a chance to donate their real money to help those in need. This comes via another installment of the "give one get one" feature that we've seen time and time again over the past few months, as players can purchase items to send to their friends, with 100% of the purchase price going to Direct Relief International.
To be specific, players can now send a Skyline Unicorn to their friends for $1 each. You can access this feature by clicking on the appropriate icon on the right side of the screen, or by clicking on the picture of this unicorn within the store. From there, you can choose one of six neighbors to send a Skyline Unicorn to, or you can close the window and open it again in order to refresh the selection of available neighbors.
If you send at least one Skyline Unicorn to a friend, you'll receive an exclusive Skyline Tree for yourself. Remember, Zynga will donate all of the purchase price from each and every Skyline Unicorn purchased through this event, so feel free to send more than one to neighbors, until you've reached the amount of money that you would personally like to donate. Just make sure to donate fast, as your chance to do so via this event likely won't be available for long.
