Bandai Co., Ltd. and Sync Beatz Entertainment celebrate the spirit of philanthropy by announcing Carole Pearson as the first winner of its Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Hometown Heroes program. Pearson is being recognized for her work in advocating for homeless dogs. A $5,000 contribution has been made in Pearson’s honor to her animal rescue group, The Dawg Squad.
The Hometown Heroes program is a kickoff initiative of the new Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. (Love Is Fun Everywhere) lifestyle brand. Its goal is to encourage and recognize pro-social activity by enabling visitors to the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. website to nominate people in their communities who have selflessly committed time and effort to improve the quality of life for those in need. Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. recognizes the highest scoring nominee with a $5,000 donation to the charity of his/her choice, an inscribed Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Hometown Heroes Crystal Award, and a video on the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. website.
The next winner will be selected at the end of April. Fans are encouraged to submit nominations for their own Hometown Heroes at http://tamagotchilife.com/heroes.
