Good Will Games

Good will games banner

You’re invited to participate in our 2021 Goodwill Games to help uplift and encourage those in need in your community during these challenging pandemic times. Plus, enjoy the opportunity to elevate your own karma through kindness and paying it forward!

Our month long scavenger hunt format gives you points for each act of goodwill that you do. Whether it’s shopping for a neighbor, donating food, volunteering for a local charity …each act counts!! Simply take a selfie of yourself completing your act of kindness and upload it to Instagram or Facebook and tag Binnacle House (@binnaclehousenj). We’ll track your points and help you spread the love!

Open to all! Prizes will be awarded to top point earners and top fundraisers. These acts of kindness are intended to be completed in a socially distanced, state directed health conscious manner. Only those who wish to compete for prizes need to register. (Scroll down to the bottom of this page or click here to register.) Non-competing participants are encouraged to pay it forward all you like and share with us.

Paying it forward is not just good for the soul, but creates a shift of goodness into the Universe. In these uncertain times, we need more thoughtfulness.


When: March 1 – 31, 2021

Where: Wherever! Anywhere & Everywhere!

Volunteer Your Time

We hope you will give where the need is greatest. Cooking for the elderly, sorting food at the food bank, removing snow and running errands, volunteer your time, donating blood, paying the toll for the person behind you, picking up trash at the park, dropping off goodies to a nursing home, and there’s plenty more.

Donating Items

If a single can of vegetables is your max budget for a donation, those eating it will be thankful. If you can feed a family or donate to a food pantry, it all matters. Giving is great, giving more is better!

Kindness Point Values

  • Under 1 hour volunteering your time

There will be prizes awarded for most points earned & most funds raised. The point system has been described above. Binnacle House, like many non-profits, was hit hard in 2020. We are encouraging participants to solicit monetary donations to Binnacle House so that we can continue our mission of supporting at risk youths in NJ. Simply ask family, friends and your social media connections to donate here on your behalf.
