Seeds: A Microlending Game Where Farmville Meets Kiva

Seeds: A Microlending Game Where Farmville Meets Kiva | Helping With Kiva | Scoop.it

Instead of giving your dollars to Zynga to make your virtual farm grow faster, what if the real dollars you invested in a virtual game went to help a real entrepreneur?

 

You don’t have to search for long to see examples of game designers focusing their talents on games that do social good.WeTopia, a popular Farmville-style Facebook game that lets users send donations to nonprofits around the world, even has endorsements from Justin Bieber and Ellen Degeneres. But the newest game for good--Seeds--has a microlending twist.

 

Created by a team that includes award-winning game designer Brad Wiggins and Amanda Wixted, the former Tech Lead of Zynga’s iOS team, Seeds gamifies microlending--a practice popularized by Kiva that lets people loan small amounts of cash (on the order of $25) to borrowers in the developing world, most of whom lack a credit history...

Hili Shiponi's insight:

This rule is ridiculous. Schools do have to be safe but this id too far. I think that all parent should be allowed to donate. They have ruined a tradition that everyone is happy with.

When Parents of Bullies Don’t Teach Their Children Empathy

When Parents of Bullies Don’t Teach Their Children Empathy | Helping With Kiva | Scoop.it
Ever wonder where the parents of the school bully went wrong?

 

Ingrain Empathy to Prevent Bullying

 

Bullies are sadly lacking in empathy; this is obvious to the layman, to other children, even. Parents can't teach empathy by lecturing about it. They must BE empathetic towards their children, and they must put their kids in circumstances that cultivate and grow empathy within them (such as having their kids do volunteer work with those less fortunate).

 

Forcing your kids to share their toys won't cultivate empathy. In fact, when parents get angry about the sharing issue and force it upon their kids, this is a form of bullying on the part of the parent. Bullying behavior can be learned from parents. But so can empathy. It's difficult for bullying and empathy to co-exist in the same child's body.
