Capetonian devises card game encouraging random acts of kindness

A Cape Town man has created a game where everyone is a winner.

The game is called Game for Humanity and contains a pack of 30 cards that each contain a small way you can make a difference in the world.

Founder and philanthropist Marc Buhrer says the game is a part of an ongoing effort to encourage kind deeds and giving among locals.

He says that each game card includes instructions such as donating clothing, buying someone a coffee, letting them skip the queue, giving a stranger a hug or writing a thank you note.

Once the player has completed the task, he or she is expected to hand over the card to the recipient of the gesture.

It's expected for them to continue with that random act of kindness, and hopefully the card has a life span of a few days, months or even years.
