Your Responsibilities and Authorizations When Using The Site

TheGoodness Tokens

Members give out “Tokens” of endorsement to other members to show recognition and  appreciation of good deeds.  The token system is intended as a guide to help members to be selective in giving out endorsements by limiting the number of endorsements they can give. This also lets the member on the receiving end know that they have earned something of value, rather than a quick thumbs-up. Each member starts out with 50 tokens when they first sign on, and thereafter will have the opportunity to earn more tokens by doing good deeds (such as reporting your donations and volunteer services.)

How can I get more tokens?  

Be active and get involved- here are a number of ways:

Report your donation, each $1 donation will get you 1 token 

You’re automatically entered into our daily raffle when you give out endorsements, this gives you a chance to win 50 tokens every day.

TheGoodness Points

One of the best parts of performing good deeds such as reporting volunteer services and donations to non-profit through TheGoodness is earning TheGoodness Points. There are lots of ways that you can earn points: 

Get endorsements from the TheGoodness Community: Earn 2 Points every time someone in the TheGoodness Community endorses you. The more you are active, the more chance of other members endorse you. You can endorse as many people as you want but you are limited to one endorsement per person per day.

Report your donations: you get 1 Goodness point for every $1 you donate.  

Report your volunteer hours: you get 10 Goodness point for every hour of service.

Give out endorsements to other members: you get 1 Goodness point when you endorse other members

Gifting: give 1 token to a non-profit with get you 2 Goodness points

TheGoodness points have no cash value. As long as you maintain an account with TheGoodness, your points never goes down and never expire; however, if you cancel your TheGoodness account, your points will expire. TheGoodness, in its sole discretion, may award different prizes for points. For example, at the end of each giveaway period, the top point earners may win prizes. Some prizes only go to the top 5 point earners per period (monthly, quarterly or annually at the discretion of TheGoddness).  In each giveaway period, a user is eligible to only win one prize. For example, if you win the top prize, you are not eligible to win any of the other prizes in that specific giveaway period. TheGoodness reserves the right to change the conditions for awarding prizes and does not guarantee awarding any particular or quantity of prizes or awarding any prizes at all. TheGoodness reserves the right to change these policies or cancel these promotions at any time. A list of any prizes that will be awarded for top point earners, if any, can be found on the TheGoodness Win Prizes Page.
