Own A Color and Save a Child’s Life

Illyriad is proud to be a part of Own A Color. When we discovered the program, we took the opportunity to have some fun naming Illyriad’s colors while donating money to a worthy cause.

Own a Color is a fantastic movement started by a small group of individuals – passionate in their belief that small acts can combine collectively to save the lives of many children one child at a time. All donations through Own a Color go to UNICEF, the world’s leading organization that protects children’s rights to be educated, healthy and treated fairly.
