We want to thank the hundreds of crowdfunders who have joined us in the goal is to gamify kindness and make the world a better place in the process.
Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) July 24, 2017
After a successful run on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, where creators of The Good Cards surpassed their campaign goal to reach an even larger group of ‘Dreamers,’ pre-sales of the innovative card game and app will continue on the company website https://www.thegoodcards.com/.
“We want to thank the hundreds of crowdfunders who have joined us in the goal is to gamify kindness and make the world a better place in the process,” said The Good Cards Founder Pawel Alwa. “We expect to reach more people who share our vision to make the world a better place – one nice act at a time – as sales continue on our website.”
The Good Cards game and app combine the vision of a better world by promoting players to do good deeds for other people. When playing The Good Cards, everyday people have an opportunity to join a legion of superheroes or ‘Dreamers’ – connecting with millions of individuals from across the globe to harness the power of collective positive actions.
Using The Good Cards app, players move through individual missions that allow them to do something kind for someone else as anonymously as possible. Once they’ve done their good deed, the ‘hero’ player then asks the other person to simply pass on the kindness by doing something good for someone else – receiving a Good Card in return, which allows the game to continue. Once the card is received, the player scans the card themselves – with their growing number of good deeds creating a “chain reaction of goodness.”
Alwa says there are already people in 18 countries using The Good Cards.
In addition to the game and app, which can be used on any iOS or Android device, the creators also showcased their unique ‘Dreamers’ glasses during the campaign – an accessory that gives players an opportunity to make a statement while making the world a better place. One lens is square, which symbolizes logic, while the other is circular, representing love.
“With the glasses, players make a physical statement while playing The Good Game, showing they’re both intelligent and loving when it comes to their fellow humans,” Alwa said. “We call our real-life superheroes ‘Dreamers,’ and each ‘Dreamer’ is given a card for each good deed they accomplish, or when they donate to our non-profit organization Better World. This keeps the game going, but the true incentive the player receives is knowing that every time they play they make the world a better place.”
During the crowdfunding campaign, The Good Cards also announced a partnership with WATERisLIFE, one of the leading water charities in the world. The two nonprofits are working in tandem to co-create an in-game mission specifically focused on taking individual action to support solutions to the water crisis.
