Today, I’m sharing with you something special and something cool. It’s something that will spread kindness around! It’s for all change makers and kind hearted people. I’m talking about The Good Cards. It’s launching on June 15, 2017 and I’m here to share a sneak peek.
Remember this shirt I posted on my Instagram a few months back? I thought I’d share this look together with this sneak peek of The Good Card game because both encourage kindness and happiness. Don’t you think? With everything that’s happening around the world lately, we definitely need more good. We need to spread kindness and love. We need to all get along. Enough with the attitude and hate. Instead, be more grateful, understanding, nice, and kind.
What Is The Good Card?
Have you ever heard of a story of a generous or super-kind person doing something especially nice for someone else? Have you ever stopped and thought about those stories from the receiver’s view? Remember the time a random stranger left a $500 tip for a restaurant server out of genuine kindness? That person was incredible to do such a thing, but the server is really the one to imagine for a moment. To that server, that kind person was a hero. That server may have been late on their rent that month or maybe was struggling to pay for their groceries that week, so in their eyes…that stranger was their HERO.
Have you ever watched the movie Pay It Forward with Kevin Spacey and wondered if that little boy’s school project idea would actually work? Well, a technology-inspired not-for-profit organization called Better World has actually managed to gam-ify kindness and generosity through their new game called, The Good Cards. This new game is meant to inspire more people to do good deeds for other people and IT’S ALREADY HAPPENING!
The Good Cards has started to help more people remember that the power of kindness STILL goes a long way. We all have the power to create a better world by starting with those people we already see in our daily lives. There are already people in 18 countries doing it!
How Does The Good Cards Work?
To play this game, a person starts with The Good Card which is either given to you by someone else or obtained after donating as little as $2 to Better World, who keeps this game going. The card itself is made out of a special and environmentally-safe plastic that bio-degrades back into our Earth if it’s dropped or lost by someone.
Once someone (potential hero) has a card, they’re supposed to scan it using The Good Card game app that can be downloaded on any Apple or Android device. The app will then guide that person through a mission to do something kind for someone else, as anonymously as possible. Once they’ve done their good deed, the ‘hero’ will then need to ask the other person to simply pass on the kindness by doing something good for someone else. The ‘hero’ will then give them The Good Card, to continue the game. That person will then scan the card themselves, and follow the same process creating a chain of reaction.
Now this is the type of game that I like. We all need it right now.
