TAG! You’re it! Welcome to the Get HandsOn Tag Challenge!

We’re the proud official sponsor of Get HandsOn Tag, Points of Light Institute’s game of virtual tag… and in this game the way to win is by doing good. With your cell phone, Facebook or Twitter account, you’ll be able to “tag” anyone you know who’d be interested in creating or volunteering on a service project. Once “You’re It,” you’ll get into the game by volunteering – anything from setting up a volunteer tutoring service for the young students in your neighborhood, to volunteering at your local HandsOn Action Center… whatever you can do to take action that makes an impact.

This is the type of partnership that we’re excited to help make happen. People’s willingness to volunteer their time and service has soared even in these difficult economic times. This renewed engagement in volunteering shows that at our core, no matter what struggles we may be going through, we all have a desire to help each other. Tag is a glowing example of that connection we all feel to one another.

So join us in playing Tag by becoming a part of the Get HandsOn Community at Through the portal you can meet up with other Tag players, get great ideas for service projects, and bookmark that Tag Leaderboard to see where you rank on the list of Tag Masters! The community interacts with Facebook and Twitter, so all your friends and followers will see the good work you’re doing.

Try it right now – go ahead – get out that laptop or smart phone and head over to to start tagging!  So… what are you waiting for? Tag, you’re it! Tag runs through December 17, 2010.
