Thank you everyone. So far the comments and suggestions have more than I could have hoped for. The people you meet in this "game" should become more than just fellow gamers. A build-able community is exactly the experience the most active users should experience. I would want to implement a chain of moderators for each community. Local members to help run/update their regions homepage on the site. Michael; the charities are a must. Any-and-all (legitimate) charities should be considered associates to the website. Many things must be considered before this game could take of in the scale I imagine. Will everyone's help, this humanitarian-task-force is in reach.

Thank you. The slow but steady acceptance of this idea in Ted has been an indication to me that the best minds are more than willing to work with me on this. Having a member of Ted staff contribute is an honor, as this idea was a bit of a "eureka" moment. If internet communities have showed me anything, its that we the human race have potential to be beautifully compassionate.

Amily: Your contribution brings up a good point. The gamer should be constantly reminded that they are gaming while performing these socially conscious acts. After-all, the target demographic is gamers; and while I don't want it to seem like the "game" is there to make the good deeds worth doing, I do want to reward the gaming community with a fun interactive experience. Si: I'm not sure what your angle is. Integration of advance technology is inevitable at this point, but we should keep in mind the natural; non-virtual world. Advancements like the ones you used an example are within reach very soon, but only for First-world countries. However, software and the ever-evolving internet can be available to most of the population within a reasonable timeline. Interconnected Earth is just a stones throw away and we need be ready to take advantage.
