Kids have fun and make a difference through good deeds & positive thinking both in the online virtual world game & in the real world.
A Better World creates Uplifting Games and Apps to Brighten the World. And kids brighten *our* world. We’re parents, too, and we love the enthusiasm, innocence, and energy of kids.
We want to make a game that brings out the best in our kids, helps shape them into positive people, and helps them make the world a better place. Our goal is to create an alternative to violent and time-wasting games. We want to use the immersive, imaginative, and interactive aspects of gameplay to help kids learn important values and good happiness habits while having great fun.
Kids will create avatars in the game that live in the virtual community, the BetterWorldians Neighborhood, interact with other kids, and get jobs to help make the world a better place. Jobs are based on gameplay kids already know and love such as Cooking, Driving, Building, Puzzles, and more. And A Better World for Kids will include actions like Learning to Cook Healthy, Sorting and Recycling using Match 3, and Solving Word Games with Positive Themes.
Kids will earn Do-Good Gold for Positive Actions and Positive Attitude and can use it to play at being adults. They can decorate their own home and visit friends, they can dress up in fun clothes and costumes, and they can even have their own pets to care for and play with! And in A Better World for Kids, the more good deeds they do, the faster and further they’ll progress! They’ll earn more points, unlock more features of the game, and even their house gets bigger!A key aspect of A Better World for Kids is breaking the boundary between the real world and virtual world – kids are asked to do good in the game AND in the real world. Kids can also share and be rewarded in the game for real world good they’ve done. This is not just about sitting and playing online, but about going out in the world and doing good. Parents can even put in real world household chores for kids to do which earns kids Do-Good Gold in the game.A Better World for Kids will be released as a tablet app and be compliant with all child privacy laws and regulations. We are working with FTC COPPA certified safe harbor vendor, Privo, to ensure that we follow all best practices in making sure A Better World for Kids is safe. We also will use Sift’s state-of-the-art, best-in-class monitoring techniques to ensure that any interactions between kids are safe and friendly.
I am so excited to tell you about A Better World for Kids. It really combines the virtual world and the real world, and helps kids learn how important it is to do good for others! Sometimes I feel like that is a concept that is lost a bit in our society, so I’m glad to see someone is stepping up and doing something about it! They’re Indiegogo page is so great, and backing the project is a breeze!
“As part of #GivingTuesday, Raymond and MarySue Hansell, A Better World’s CEO and COO, are launching the MeeMee and Peeps Match (their grandchildren’s name for them). They have promised to personally make a donation to children’s charities for every contribution made to the A Better World for Kids campaign on Indiegogo. For every contribution made to A Better World for Kids, Ray and MarySue will donate a 10% match of the amount pledged to two children’s charities, regardless of whether the campaign meets its goal and is fully funded, up to $10,000.”
