"Life's most persistent and urgent question is 'what are you doing for others?’"
-Martin Luther King Jr. 



On Earth Day 2014, we had this question in mind when we launched the Hustlers for Humanity, a team in service to our community of Santa Barbara. We started recruiting new teammates and began volunteering together one day at a time for causes we believe in. As people enthusiastically joined us, our reach grew and our impact magnified.



As it turned out, we weren't the only ones dreaming of a better future for all of us. As we served, we began meeting allies from around the corner and across the world, heroes of today teaming up to make the world a better place.


We discovered futurist and game designer Jane McGonigal, and her book "Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Change the World”. We loved her philosophy that games can change the world and help us reinvent the future.



We realized that our Hustlers approach to serving the community was actually applying many of the same elements that make today's best games so popular: greater purpose, personal empowerment to create change, a feeling of togetherness, and being part of something much bigger than ourselves. We realized we had created a way to make a game out of serving our community.


Then we came across the genius of futurist Buckminster Fuller. Bucky wanted to create an alternative to the game of war and help humanity best allocate its resources amongst the whole. In the 1960’s, he created the World Game, also known as the "world peace game". 

His primary goal was to "make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."


Unfortunately, there were no smart phones and no internet in the 1960's.  The timing simply wasn’t right for such an epic idea.

That's when we had our "A-ha!" moment...

Now more than ever, young leaders - change agents of today - are standing up for what they believe is right and are changing the world for the better.



Civic leaders, athletes, musicians, actors, community organizers, students and teachers, philanthropists, humanitarians, investors, business leaders - heroes of all types are standing together for change.


Today, nearly half the world is online, with more than 2.3 billion of us connected on Facebook alone. In America, we spend an average of 5.9 hours a day on social media and 3.3 hours on our phones.

With today's technology available to us, we can accomplish Bucky's mission to create a world game that helps make the world work for all of us.

That seed of an idea is now blossoming into reality. We call it Serve Community.


Our team is passionately working away to create the world game of service. This web and mobile platform is being tailor-made to help humanity team up as a global community to take on our greatest challenges together.

Goals
2 of 300 patrons
In the year 480 B.C. in Ancient Greece, King Leonidas led his tribe in the Battle of Thermopylae known as "The Hot Gates".  As legend has it, his united tribe of only 300 Spartans stood strong against Xerxes and more than 100,000 soldiers in one of history's most famous last stands. The strength of his tribe came from a strategy known as the phalanx, where each member protects the teammate to the left, creating a unified chain.
