Game on Facebook partners with the YMCA of Greater Brandywine

The family team behind A Better World - the do-good virtual world game on Facebook - is sending kids in need to summer camp as result of a successful February challenge partnership with the YMCA of Greater Brandywine.

Players in A Better World were challenged to complete 200,000 good deeds in the game during the month of February. Because they did so, kids in Chester County will have the opportunity to have the “Y summer experience,” providing hope and inspiration to those that need it most.

“The Y has a much bigger mission than people might realize. It’s a non-profit that strengthens the foundations of our community. It is our pleasure to support that important mission by contributing to the summer camp program to provide kids in need opportunities that they otherwise wouldn’t have,” said A Better World CEO, Ray Hansell.

A Better World encourages gratitude, habits of goodness, positive mindsets, and giving to social causes to make a difference. Players can even send get well notes to real world children recovering from surgeries. Fun rewards for doing good include dressing up, taking care of pets, and decorating virtual homes. Players also work together to meet do-good goals that, when met, release money to charities. A Better World calls this Cause Gaming®.
