Gaming for Change

Excellent article on the possibilities of using online games to create change.

Imagine a game where your achievement was “Hero” for “Feeding hungry children in African village.”

What if we could make a difference and volunteer and help without having to get out of our seats?

I feel like this idea could be just like change.org, which has made signing petitions easier than ever. Since finding out about that site, I have signed about seven petitions that I would never have made an effort to go out and do something about on my own.

You may think this is lazy, and it is. But these petitions make a difference. Why complain about lazy people when you can use them? Some change is better than no change, right?

I would play this game, would you?
