win the Look for the Good goodie bag!
Look for the Good is our online game where one lucky lover of local will win an amazing kit of goodies by finding fun and cool things about Guide to the Good companies!
you know, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by things that aren’t going well. bad news travels fast and it sticks because we’re wired to keep danger and threats top of mind. that was useful in a different age, but today we need a broader focus to survive and thrive. our Look for the Good game is a little play-and-win to share cute, fun, cool and good things that are on the go all over this place.
because there are still good things - you just need to look for them.
