Kessler Foundation said in a news release:
Mohnish Sabhani, a 7th grader at Park Middle School in Scotch Plains, N.J., designed a gaming app for Android devices to benefit Kessler Foundation, a public charity that improves quality of life for people with disabilities based in West Orange, N.J.
Sabhani, who has designed computer games and apps since the age of eight, decided to develop an app for charity after his Social Studies teacher gave the class a service learning project. The assignment is designed to help the students become better citizens while also changing the lives of others.
“I chose to work with Kessler Foundation because I recently learned that more than 54 million Americans have a disability,” said Sabhani. “Kessler Foundation works everyday to support their independence and I want to be a part of helping people with disabilities live as normal of a life as possible. I’m hoping that the app will raise money to support research for people with disabilities. It’s important to remember that $5, $10 and even $5 million helps!”
“The Target” is a game of timing as the player tries to get a ball through a series of obstacles to reach the target. The game has easy, medium, and difficult options, with 15 levels within each option. While making a donation to Kessler Foundation is encouraged, “The Target” is free to download and play. To learn more and to download the game to any Android device, visit http://bit.ly/TheTargetKesslerFoundation or enter “The Target Kessler Foundation” into the Google Play or app market search.
