I’ve fallen in love with GOOD Maker (maker.GOOD.is) — crowd-sourcing for a better world. Since discovering the GOOD Maker platform, it’s become my new “go-to” social media distraction. GOOD Maker inspires me to propose a good idea, to evaluate and vote for solutions– which is a way more productive use of my time than pinning a bunch of recipes I’ll never cook.
Here’s an example of a challenge that intrigued me: “Discover the Forest’s Get Your Community Outdoors!” Challenge
- Submit your best ideas for how to motivate people in your communities to discover their wild side and reconnect with nature. The entrant with the most votes will be awarded $500 worth of airfare on Frontier airline to escape to the forest of their choice and $1,000 in grant funding to activate their idea. This GOOD Maker Challenge is sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, The Wilderness Society and the Ad Council.
- Entering doesn’t take long. Submit your ideas for how to encourage families and communities to escape their stresses and enjoy the great outdoors in 3-5 sentences and submit an informal video or photograph(s) to illustrate your ideas.
- Enter by Noon PST, Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Go to discovertheforest.maker.good.is for contest rules, eligibility guidelines, and submission instructions.
