The Dr. Phil Foundation helps children and families in need develop a sense of purpose and mission in their lives.

"It's deeply gratifying and worth all of the effort that we give," said Woodard about the organizations she leads. 

BetterWorldians Radio is hosted by the creators of A Better World, a social game on Facebook that rewards players for doing good and thinking positively. In the month of June, A Better World will partner with the Dr. Phil Foundation in support of CASA, which has a mission to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children in need. A Better World is challenging it's players to complete 300,000 good deeds in the game during the month, and when the goal is reached, A Better World will release funds for the I am for the Child campaign which recruits volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children.

A Better World, maker of the popular Do-Good Facebook game that rewards users for completing good deeds, will be launching a new crowdfunding campaign to fund an online kid-friendly spin-off called A Better World for Kids. The campaign will run on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter and begin September 23. The funding goal for the campaign is $500,000 to be used for the production and mass distribution of A Better World for Kids.

This positive game, to be hosted on its own website, will be loved by both parents and children. A Better World for Kids is a virtual world game where adults need kids’ help to save the day through Positive Actions and Positive Attitude. Instead of promoting violence and selfishness, the game rewards children for doing good deeds and helping others.

Just like Mom and Dad, kids will get a house, a job and even pets. Jobs will be based on gameplay kids already know and love such as Cooking, Driving, Building, Puzzles and more. But in A Better World for Kids, it will be actions like Learning to Cook Healthy, Sorting and Recycling using Match 3 and Solving Word Games with Positive Themes.

Kids earn Do-Good Gold for their do-good jobs that they can use to select virtual goods for their avatar and virtual home. Kids can decorate their house, dress up in fun clothes and costumes, even adopt pets to care for and play with.

Children can also share and be rewarded in the game for acts of kindness they’ve done in the real world. A key aspect of A Better World for Kids is breaking the boundary between the real world and virtual world – children are asked to do good in the game as well as in the real world. This means that children are not just playing a game, they are going out in the world and doing good. Parents can also put in real world household chores for children to do which earns them Do-Good Gold in the game.

A Better World for Kids is also all about positive attitude. A Better World for Kids will encourage children to think positively and teach them ways to express gratitude and other positive feelings, both in and out of the game. A Better World for Kids does all of this in a fun and interactive game format that children love to play.

Staying true to the message of good deeds, A Better World for Kids has promised to pledge 10 percent of its post-campaign net profits to charity. The company will support a new charity every two months and work with these charities to make the real world a better place for kids.

Funding for A Better World for Kids starts September 23, 2014. To learn more about A Better World for Kids Kickstarter campaign, visit http://bit.ly/ABWFKsignup.

Wayne, PA –December 11, 2013A Better World has now logged over ten million good deeds in the popular Facebook game.  The game, which was designed to encourage small acts of kindness, has been played by more than two million people and just may be creating a movement that they intended…a better world. A Better World runs campaigns with nonprofit partners as part of its Cause Gaming initiative to use the power of games to create positive change.

“When we created A Better World, we were met with a good deal of skepticism,” said Ray Hansell, CEO of ToonUps. “We always believed that there were enough good people in the world that would make this movement take off.  That appears to be happening.”

“We want to encourage all people to meet the wishes of  the Newtown families who are requesting that others do a small act of kindness on the anniversary of the tragedy in honor of their loved ones,” said Gregory R. Hansell, VP of Product Development. “As our mission, we have encouraged acts of kindness for years. As a family, we understand the hope that something good can come from something terrible.  We hope that people not only do something kind, but share that with others, because we notice that when people share the good things they do, it encourages others who may need a boost.”

The BetterWorldians movement now consists of A Better World Facebook game, the growing BetterWorldians Facebook community, BetterWorldians Radio, and the Color Your World with Kindness (http://bit.ly/J7y48Z) inspirational video. The video is part of their currently active holiday campaign to inspire acts of kindness, and when it reaches one million views, funds will be released that will provide surgeries to ten children, enabling them to walk for the first time.

BetterWorldians Radio has attracted some amazing guests boasting similar themes. The following quotes were excerpted from radio transcripts:

“Anybody can change the world.  You can do it with small things, you can do it with big things, but to do it in a big way, you need to start small.”
Jay Scott, Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

“Change only happens when action takes place.Do as much as you possibly can to follow your intuition and actually do those small gestures, those small things that make the world a better place because once you start doing them, you will realize that it’s almost addictive.” 
Dan Karslake, Filmmaker and Producer, Every Three Seconds

“The best thing people can do to be happy is to not worry so much about themselves but rather to worry about other people and just kind of trust that happiness will come from that.” 
Dr. Matthew Della Porta, Happiness Expert

“Love is what is going to work miracles.” 
Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Author Mother Teresa and Me
