About this project

About this project

Change the world one good deed at a time!

We have a mission.  We created a tranquil game that all will enjoy.  We want to make custom characters that highlight real people doing good things.  And, promote the good they are doing!

We all know the world is scary.  But, there are a LOT of amazing people who do very good things.  Why don't we hear about these people as much?  Bad news travels faster...

It's time that we, the people, start showcasing the good in the world!  And, we have a creative way to do that but need your help. 

I formed a team of amazing people to develop and promote games/apps.  They come from all different backgrounds and a variety of countries.  Their talent is incredible.  Our mission is to create enchanting games that bring smiles to the faces of the players while promoting the good in the world.

Why we need your help

We need your help to get started. We not only need financial help but we also need to know more about real people doing good things. 

We have created a few custom characters based on the players themselves.   See the link for an example.

However, we have decided to now focus on everyday people who make a difference in the world with their kind hearts and unselfish deeds. Watch the attached video for an example of how well this can be done.  

  • There are millions of people who play games on electronic devices. We can't think of a better way to spread the word. Kindness breeds kindness. It is a way to 'play' it forward! Maybe if we start doing it, others will too.

How we will do it

Once we have collected the funds and the nominations, we will complete these steps:  

1) Read through the descriptions of the nominations and select a few for the first round 

 2) Speak with the individuals and ask if they would be interested in being interviewed about their good deeds and possibly becoming a character in one of our games. 

3) Do an interview with each of them. 

4) Share their story and their interview with our community to create awareness of “everyday good.” 

5) Select one individual from that group of nominations. 

 6) Create a custom character for our game using their likeness. We will use both their image and a description of their good deeds (to ensure that players know the story behind the character). We will also create a short description to display on the character selection page in the game. 

7) Create a podcast of that person’s interview to share with the community. 

8) Create a video, similar to the example herein, to showcase the person, their deeds and the creation process of the character. 

 9) Promote the characters in our game that show the world there are still good people making the world better. 

10) Repeat the above for the next group of nominations. 

How we will use the money we raise 

Of the $3500 requested, we will spend $2500 on marketing the good deeds. We will then make 2 custom characters with the remaining $1000. It costs approximately $500 for each custom character including the podcast editing and the video.

For every $500 over the $3500, we will continue to create more characters of 'real people doing good things.'

Who should you nominate? 

Typically, someone who tries to make the world better by doing simple gestures. Think of people who are doing it because it is in their heart. The right individuals might be harder to find than those seeking glory. They are someone's friend, neighbor, co-worker or a friend of a friend. There are plenty of people in the world spreading love. We just need help finding them and spotlighting the fact that it doesn't take a big effort to do something great! 

Rules for submitting people for these characters are simple: Nominate an average person who does good deeds. No politicians or people who are doing it for publicity. No hate. No ugliness. We just want to share the love.

 Here are some samples:

 Why is this project important? 

We know this won't immediately change the world, but if we all do everything we can, we can start to bring back love, kindness and tolerance to a divided world. 

We sincerely hope there are enough people who believe as we do. If we all do our part, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges

The only problem we foresee with this project is getting the nominated people to accept the publicity. They have a right to their privacy, and we will respect that.

However, if this happens, we will simply move on to the next person nominated. We have no doubt we will find the right people who are willing to share the story of their good deeds with the world.

So, let’s “play it forward” with everyday good!
