Join a celebrity team and help them win a chunk of the $500,000 prize up for grabs by playing the most words in your own Words With Friends game. Every word played in a game during the length of the tournament will help boost the team’s ranking. The higher the rank, the more money the team wins for charity.
Give – You can still get involved, even if you’re not a wordsmith. By making donations, fans will be able to compete for cool prizes, including autographed items, like basketballs from Paul Pierce and posters from Kristin Bell and Jonah Hill.
