What we do
Dignity Platform is our idea to create an online fundraising marketplace. It will be a community led app and website, for people to hire and be hired by one another, for useful odd jobs. This can be absolutely anything, from fixing your car to babysitting, a french lesson to accounting advice. Professional, creative, physical or academic, everyone’s gifts are infinite. The fee, paid by the hirer, is donated to causes, charities or meaningful projects, chosen half by the Hirer and half by the 'Doer’.
The app will also be integrated with our friend’s project Represent Me. (https://represent.me/) We intent to collaborate with their online democratic tool, to start a conversation between donors and the causes they support. Making the giving process participative and engaging, rather than obligate and money focused; treating people as more than just a wallet, leveraging their collective intelligence. This is just one of the ways we aim to practice what we preach, and learn what we teach; for projects to continuously try to innovate. We see that we could create our own voting and ideas system, but why waste time and resources when we can collaborate instead. We are leading by example, actively and openly cooperating with other projects that align with our values and vision.
Our social impact
Inspire Inspired giving.
We recognize inspiring and purposeful organisations have a battle gaining funding for their World changing solutions. We want to create a better way, where begging for donations will be a thing of the past. Participation in the cause, not obligation. To change the currency of giving.
Establish sustainable fundraising.
To create a flow of support for solution based organisations. To allow useful projects to focus on their purpose, not wasting time and motivation on the fuel needed to keep the wheels running.
Harness collective intelligence.
To further value cause supporters, we plan to collaborate with our friend’s project, (https://represent.me/) To utilise this tool to initiate conversation between supporters and causes they support; for everyone to participate in the solution they invest in.
Value every member of society.
The app will give purpose to everyone, whatever their skill or ability. Giving each member of society the chance to give and feel useful, through their expertise, passion and time.
Giving by doing. We intend to provide the means for people to learn and build new skills and passions. Anyone can be hired no matter their skill level, giving people the ability to learn and improve.
To enable real face to face community connections, everywhere. Social isolation is becoming an increasing problem, with the internet fueling aspects of disconnect. We will tackle this by bringing neighbors who have never met together. For people to relate and cohere over great causes and allow self and peer appreciation be realised.
Forge community marketplaces.
To manifest a community economy, where locals can find and hire the people they need, within their own community of passionate givers. Charities and causes will be able to hire and help other people in equally valuable groups, and the money can be donated to their own cause or others; creating a recycling of funds.
Grow empathy and altruism.
To help people realize their ability to give. To empower neighbours to help one another. True altruism only needs an excuse, the impacts are boundless.
