What the heck is March Goodness?

March Goodness is a collaboration between Derek Anderson's Stamina Foundation (Kentucky Wildcat NCAA champ & Miami Heat NBA champ) and xocial® (the platform for Competitive Kindness®).

Together, we're challenging school campuses across North America to join our social impact competition.

Which school has the most do-gooders making the most impact? Let’s find out.

How does it work?

Do-gooders join teams that compete by completing social good challenges. Teams compete right to the end (no elimination). We'll be announcing leaders at different stages and those teams will win prizes. The winner at the buzzer is the team with the highest point total, and that team will get a donation to their school (and did we mention prizes).

Game Play

Anyone can join a team or create their own. Using the xocial app (or website) do-gooders (players) will complete social good challenges to earn XP, build their XO Score, and push their team to the top of the leaderboard.

What the heck is an XP?

In gaming vernacular XP stands for Experience Points. Building your XP is how you level-up, obtain better resources, strengthen your base, elevate your avatar.

At xocial®, XP stands for xocial® points. It’s how we measure each challenge in the ecosystem. The primary inputs for each challenge that generate an XP value are impact, effort, and time. Because all challenges in xocial use the same formula to generate challenge XP, all the challenges in the xocial ecosystem relate to one another.

Challenges

Challenges will range in XP value based on impact, effort, & time.

Our game balancer (math nerd that makes games) has all kinds of plans in store for our do-gooders. There will be daily doubles, challenge submission limits, daily challenge releases... so be ready! New challenges as well as leader updates and other alerts will be pushed to do-gooder devices.

Keep it clean (and honest)!

Hey, we all want to win. But we're participating in a Competitive Kindness competition here... That means best behaviour please! The xocial team will be closely monitoring the action and reserves the right to remove any suspected false/unauthentic challenge submission, bad language, or bullying commentary. Really any activity not befitting a xocial do-gooder may be removed (as well as the player).

Prizes

Who DOESN'T want to incentivise kindness? New sponsors are coming on board all the time, and most likely all the way through the competition. So expect the prize (and winner donation) landscape to change.

As of now, this is where we’re at do-gooders!
