Horyou is launching the website www.GreatDoingGood.com, a website dedicated to gathering testimonials from global citizens sharing their views on why it’s great to do good. The campaign supports the Social Good work promoted by the Horyou platform which has over one thousand non-profit organizations on the network sharing positivity everyday. The website presents 64 videos where citizens of the world in various cities answer the question: Why is it great to do good? The aim of the campaign is to inspire citizens of the world to support and spread positive actions. To encourage participation, a game has been established so that once the campaign has a global reach, a winner will be chosen to share $3000 for a personal social good project or action and a non-profit organisation or cause from the Horyou platform.

WHY #GREATDOINGGOOD

Great Doing Good is a campaign to spread positivity and good actions. The idea is that there is a lot of different ways to make a positive impact in this world and everyone can do this through simple actions. The campaign supports the Social Good work promoted on the Horyou platform, where NGOs and members connect on a daily basis to share good news. The campaign takes this positivity beyond the platform and to the streets of different cities of the world by interviewing their citizens on the meaning of doing good. Ultimately, the game prize will serve to support the winner’s personal social good project(s) or action and an NGO of his/her choice so that concrete good actions can come from it.
