What is this?
Gamification is a way to add a competitive game element to the serious volunteer activities. Participating in missions and making friends, you earn points for every action and win badges of special merit.
- Because fun.
- You'll have an external measure of how great you feel internally.
- You can share to Facebook and Twitter, for others to see how cool you are.
- Maybe, possibly, some day your points will be a currency for which you get real-life goods. How cool would that be!
Points and badges accumulate according to mysterious rules (the element of surprise). But it won't hurt to support many missions (we mean really participate in them), upload photos and stories about how they went (after each mission you will receive an mail), invite friends to share their talents on the site, and so on. Like be a real hero.
