Show us how you’re giving back this holiday season using #AugmentingReality, and we’ll highlight your efforts to make your local community a better place.
During the holidays, many people from around the world are motivated by the giving spirit to engage with their communities in an impactful way and make a difference for the better. Whether it’s gathering donations for your local food bank, cleaning up a public spaces, or volunteering to help those in need, our players have shown their passion for #AugmentingReality, and we want you to be a part of it, too.
From now until the New Year, we will be highlighting your efforts to make your local community a better place, and featuring some of the best initiatives from our communities in 2018. We'll be focusing on both grassroots initiatives undertaken by both Ingress and Pokémon GO communities, as well as initiatives created by Niantic alongside non-profit partners that focus on social impact and making a difference in our world today. Make sure to follow our Twitter and check in each day to see these inspiring stories of doing good.
As we close out 2018, there are many opportunities to give back to local communities through food banks, homeless shelters, toy drives and other activities.
We encourage everyone to find a local charity, get together with friends and organize a #AugmentingReality outing. Doing good and playing games are a great combo for the holiday season.
