Earning Points for Action on GoodChange.Earth

Once you register, taking action and earning points on GoodChange.Earth results in badges for your profile (see below), accolades, and soon, more real rewards. We want to partner with community businesses and organizations to set up target actions in the real world or on the site that are sponsored by the organizations (contact us about becoming a community partner or about the options below). [Note: You don’t have to worry about points at all if you don’t want to.]

  • It’s possible to use points in your own groups or families; for example, if a mom wants to set up target actions for her kids to change behavior around the house, she can do that. It’s possible to transfer points and we can help people set up things like that.
  • Schools can set up target actions for their students. The students can be awarded on GoodChange.Earth or get extra credit, for example.
  • Business can set up target actions for their customers. They may offer points on GoodChange.Earth or they could give out coupons, for example. It’s a way to work together on the challenges that face us all.
  • It’s also possible to earn other rewards through target actions. Some target actions may have certificates or other compensation.

Currently, when you do the activities below, you get points on your GoodChange.Earth profile as follows (sometimes we add new or update point values and forget to put them here, but this should be close):
