“Secret Millionaire’s Club” was created by A2 and co-produced with Xing Xing, a digital animation studio in Beijing,
China. AOL created and developed SMCKids.com, in partnership with Area 17 and MGX, where the 26 weekly

dynamic online experience with games, a Buffett Bucks rewards program, and other activities. Kids will also have
the opportunity to interact directly with Buffett via the “Ask Warren” feature. In addition, GetFugu, a mobile
