XXX Truth or Dare Donation to HIV/AIDS Research Rejected

CANFAR turns down money, company seeking new beneficiary

VANCOUVER, B.C.—XXX Truth or Dare is dedicated to giving back to the community and pledging its support to a noble cause. Unfortunately, a wrench was thrown into these plans recently as The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) rejected a massive donation from the company behind the popular adult board game.

The company had pledged to donate an across-the-board 3 percent of its games revenue to CANFAR on a continual basis, but was summarily rejected, and without reason. Despite the foundation's dire need for research and advocacy funds and constant fundraising, it appears that XXX Truth or Dare's adult content may be the reason for the rejection.

"We are extremely disappointed in this decision. We wanted to give back to the community and chose CANFAR as our vehicle. However, they ultimately declined our corporate donation. We do wish them the best in their search for funds. We will not give up our mission to support causes our community believes in, so we are changing our strategy. We want to give 3 percent of our revenue to any worthy cause who wishes to have it," said Sean, director of XXX Truth or Dare. "What this means in reality is that for EVERY single game (Straight, Gay or Lesbian) we sell regardless of retail outlet or distributor, we will pass on 3 percent of our revenue to your charitable organization. If you want help, we have money to give. We hope our donations will push others within our industry to do the same.”

XXX Truth or Dare is seeking to link up with one major charity. Organizations seeking donations are encouraged to email info@xxxtruthordare.net for consideration.

Founded in 2011, XXX Truth or Dare began with a board game based loosely around the original Truth or Dare concept. This “down and dirty” adult board game was not the average erotic adult board game with gentle teasing and kinky euphemisms, rather it was designed for sexy and confident singles and couples willing to try anything in front of others. While the flagship XXX Truth or Dare catered to straight couples and singles, the company received such positive feedback that it unveiled two LGBT-friendly versions: “Just for Girls” (Lesbian) and “Men Only” (Gay).

The company continues to innovate and expand with international distribution deals and new products like its latest Duo Cards, which complement the original board games with an intimate couples-only theme.
