McNeill Designs celebrates 7-year anniversary of charitable alliance
Toy and game development firm McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds celebrates seven years of charitable giving and partnership with the literacy organization Success Won’t Wait.
Since 2006, McNeill Designs has donated a portion of sales of the award-winning You’ve Been Sentenced! word game to Success Won’t Wait. Success Won’t Wait is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides free books to organizations, schools and programs nationwide.
Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait is a Delaware-based organization that encourages reading by providing materials to those who need them most. Success Won’t Wait volunteers organize book drives by partnering with schools and universities, independent groups and organizations, and a variety of businesses, calling on residents to donate brand new and gently used books for redistribution. To date, dozens of book drives have been held and over 450,000 books have been collected.
“Because the You’ve been Sentenced! word game is inherently an educational game (as well as lots of fun), we wanted to partner with a well-established organization that focused on reading and literacy as our beneficiary,”
Founded in 2004, McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds launched into this marketplace with a series of innovative board, card, and party games including its flagship product, the You’ve been Sentenced! word game. The game has consistently been recognized by both the toy and game industry, as well as the education community, receiving over 25 national awards and praise from industry insiders.
Following up its success with You’ve been Sentenced, McNeill Designs’ added numerous You’ve been Sentenced! themed add-on decks, as well as the Country Music Edition to its roster of products.
