Huge thank you to Martin aka Zerango for taking a nice evening stroll with us on the water. It was almost like they were made for him! We’ll be showing off some more video and photos soon.

More new characters revealed!

Have you been catching our #ScreenshotSaturday’s on Twitter? We just shared one of our pinata characters last month and this month we revealed this person that’s dressed like a goose – Gooseperson – we don’t have a name for them yet! We can say that this “Gooseperson” appears in two of our new challenge gallery games. Hold tight for more.

Here’s another while we’ve got your attention!

How do you spread kindness to others?

We found Brad’s video on Reddit one day and found out he was just down the road from us. We had coffee with him and got to know him better.

His story in lacking connection and seeking it out for himself was inspiring.

We ask ourselves every day, “how do you spread kindness”? Sometimes it’s as simple as:

  • Telling people who are awesome that they are awesome
  • Sharing a snack with a friend or colleague
  • Asking a friend you haven’t been in touch with how they’re doing, or just saying hi
  • Offering help to someone
  • Spreading positive messages that have actionable ideas online

How do you spread kindness? Let us know on Twitter, or just share something kind and awesome today in your own way!
