MONTGOMERY, ALA. (December 15, 2009) – Putting its motto – “helping those who need it most” – into action, Beasley Allen Law Firm announces the “Wii Give Back” campaign, which will give one Wii gaming system to a deserving Alabama charity each month in 2010.

To kick off this new program, Beasley Allen gave away three additional Wiis at its annual Christmas luncheon on December 15. Representatives from Adullum House, Brantwood Children’s Home and Common Ground Montgomery were on hand to receive their Wii gaming systems.
Charities from throughout the state, including Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile and Dothan are eligible for the “Wii Give Back” program. Nominations will be accepted throughout the year on our Wii Give Back Group Facebook page or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The “Wii Give Back” campaign builds on a similar outreach effort conducted by the firm in August 2009, when Beasley Allen presented Wiis to Alabama Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, and Camp ASCCA in Jacksons Gap, Ala. The August giveaways were part of a nationwide effort by law firms called Project Wii-hab, in which the gaming systems were presented to facilities to be used by patients to assist with physical therapy. Children’s Hospital’s Wii went to the UAB Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine at Children’s, which serves children with conditions affecting motor development, function and independence. Camp ASCCA is using its Wii as a centerpiece of its workout room.
“The response we had from the groups in August was so great, and it was such a good experience to be a part of it, it was a natural decision to expand the program,” said Tom Methvin, Managing Shareholder of Beasley Allen. “We’ve widened the focus so that we can serve more people, especially children.”
