On Wednesday, October 27th, the HandsOn Network launched a giant game of virtual tag at GetHandsOn.com. It's part of a campaign to mobilize 500,000 volunteers in 2 million projects to solve crucial problems in their communities.
When people play Tag, they can both change the world and have fun, and who doesn't like having fun? The rules are simple:
1. You start by being "it" by making a commitment to your community. Easy, right?
2. Then, you tag your friends, fans, followers, pets, and anyone else you know who's connected to the interwebs. You can use Facebook, Twitter, email, and other online tools to gain the maximum amount of taggage.
If you're a "top tagger," you can win cash for yourself *AND* your favorite charities!
Sounds cool, right? It's a win/win situation for everyone involved, so go ahead and "tag" your friends!
Don't forget... if you're looking for volunteer opportunities in your community, be sure to visit AARP's Create the Good.
