Sales from limited-edition Toronto Monopoly game to support charities

A new limited-edition Toronto Monopoly board game has been launched and a portion of the proceeds from each sale will support charities.

The board game, licenced by Hasboro, was officially launched Thursday morning.

The event took place at the Toronto police headquarters, a collaboration between ProAction Cops & Kids and its various sponsors.

“ProAction Cops & Kids is a charitable organization that brings cops and kids together in skill-building and mentoring programs to create trust, respect and safer communities,” a website dedicated to the new board game says.
