Here's a little about it:
A Better World, created by ToonUps, is a Facebook game that rewards players not just for in-game activities but also for real world acts of kindness and expressions of gratitude, has soared to more than 120,000 players. Gameplay activities are designed to help everyone who participates feel better about themselves, be supportive of others and make positive choices in their everyday lives. Players also can play mini games with inspirational themes; personalize their own characters and spaces in the game and play with and care for virtual pets.
I was immediately excited to see how much there is to see and do while exploring A Better World, which made it fun to navigate and find new areas, friends, and even go shopping! All you do to get started is create your character and you are ready to go! You are then taken to your home and given directions on how to begin playing. Each begins with a new set of tasks to complete and, as you complete the tasks, you earn more "good gold". You can use "good gold" to purchase items like clothing, pets, house decorations, hair-dos and much more. When you walk around, you will encounter many friends and can not only visit their houses, but leave them gifts behind. There are so many people playing A Better World that I actually ran across some of my real-life friends and co-bloggers. I left a friend a necklace and was actually rewarded with "good gold"!
There are over 15 places to explore and there are many more being added in the future! Here are some of the first places I discovered and visited:
- Department of Do Good – Take the time to share your good deals and see what other members have done, too! You can even support them for their deeds by giving a thumbs up! I realized this is also a great way to earn "good gold".
- Gratitude Grotto – An area where you leave messages of gratitude behind and can read/support messages left by others! I love reading everyone's messages.

- Sanctuary of Hope – A building where you can communicate your hopes & dreams and send encouragement to other players. This, too, is fun to read. You never know what you'll come across and you can also light a candle in support.
You can light candles in support of other people's messages of hope & write your own messages!
I was given the opportunity to share my thoughts and opinions on A Better World. I received gift card as thank you for my participation. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
