    TikTok’s Garden of Good

    TikTok has developed a first-ever game feature within its platform, The Garden of Good. The Garden of Good is available to all US-based app users who are 18 years or older. TikTokers have the opportunity to build a garden, nurture into maturity and eventually harvest those crops in exchange for a real-life monetary donation to Feeding America. For every donated harvest, TikTok will donate a minimum of $.50 or maximum of $2 to Feeding America and local Feeding America Network Food Banks. TikTokers will have the freedom to make as many “harvests” as possible during the lifetime of the game!

    To participate in the Garden of Good, download or open TikTok and head to your profile page. You should notice a vegetable icon on the upper left corner; click the icon to start your garden! Garden of Good is accessible on mobile devices only: https://snssdk1233.onelink.me/bIdt
