HandsOn Network and the World's Largest Game of Virtual Tag

Posted: Updated:

Hey, the folks at the HandsOn Network just launched the world's largest game of virtual tag at

This starts a series of challenges in the Get HandsOn campaign to get going 500,000 volunteers in 2 million service projects. The focus is on meeting challenges in education, the environment, the economy, and emergency response.

Here's the deal:

1.       Sign up to play by making a pledge to volunteer in their community. It can
be something you are already doing or something you have always wanted to do.

2.       Then Tag friends that you know are active "Leaders" because they have
shown a commitment to giving back.

3.     Then everyone Gets serving by starting (or continuing) their volunteer
activity and telling us what they did. Players can also join someone else's project
and see what others are doing.
