DoGood App...compliments of Operation Nice

The following post is compliments Melissa whose awesome blog is Operation Nice...view the whole post (and check out many more awesome ideas) here...

The whole concept behind the DoGood app is to "unite individual acts of kindness into a significant movement." Basically, like I always said, little things make a big difference if we all do it together.

Every morning, you click on the little DoGood button on your iPhone, and it gives you a task for the day. Like Wednesday's was "Give someone a hug." Simple. Obviously if it was too big a pain in the neck, it would be tough to find participants. And then when you complete your task, you click "done".

DoGood then keeps statistics of each event and shows you the level of participation. Not only does this app encourage people to be nice and do nice things, but it's superbly designed eye candy! You know, if you're a nerd like me.

I know this post is iPhone-user-specific, but if you have one, I highly recommend playing along. It's free! And if you don't have one, maybe this is the excuse you need to go out and get one. ;-)

I'm doing this with the kids when I can & today's DoGood was "Be cultural" and learn something new about a different culture. Jack decided he wanted to learn what kids in Guatemala liked to do for sports and we found out it was soccer, biking & fishing. So now you know too! :-)
