Play the Game, Help the World

http://www.icanhelptheworld.com

My brother and I grew up playing video games like Metroid and Sonic the Hedgehog, but compared to the number of games and different platforms today, it’s hard to know which to play and where to even start. I CAN HELP THE WORLD™ is a game that centres around pressing issues facing the world and allows players to give to nonprofits working towards addressing those needs.

A social enterprise with the goal to empower helpers and givers, the creators of I CAN HELP THE WORLD™ have combined entertainment, social media, kids, philanthropy and nonprofits to make helping addictive and desirable. Through weekly missions designed to provide children with social challenges, and empowering them to be part of the solution, the game provides new opportunities for players and the worldwide community to rally towards reaching a common virtual goal that supports a real world nonprofit.

With every dollar put into the game, 50% is donated to a chosen nonprofit working on similar issues players are addressing within the game. Beyond donations, the makers of the game are committed to giving their time and generating social awareness for their partner nonprofit organizations. “The more you play I CAN HELP THE WORLD™ the more you actually help the real world.”

If you’re a nonprofit wishing to be part of the game, you can complete an application here.
