Ready for some good news? While our time lines are often full of reports of greed, Giving Tuesday is the opposite. This movement inspires millions of people across the globe to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. Giving Tuesday brings together a global community around the ideals of generosity and collective action.
What exactly is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Help us reach more rural communities in Latin America through our organization Strong Minds Studios, where we impact hundreds of students providing our educational games and teacher resources for free.
As a kid, how can I get involved?
It’s about action not only giving. At 7 Generation Games, we’ve got something that you CAN DO to help us out. It won’t cost you a dime. It doesn’t take but five minutes of your time (no, seriously). And it would REALLY help us out.

2. Play for a few minutes and that’s it!
If you really like us and have like 7 minutes, you can do the above and leave us a (glowing) review in the app store. And/or you can tell everyone you know about what they can do to help us out too.
Why are we asking you to do this specifically?
The more times an app is downloaded, the higher it moves up in search in the App and Google Play stores – and this matters because there are literally hundreds of thousands of educational apps out there (most of which are pretty meh), and small companies like ours need every edge we can get to rise above the noise. That way schools can get to know us and get into our program of free educational videogames.
