INSIGHT

 

People use social networks all the time, whether it's to watch videos of cats, find the latest clickbait or discover the latest fad.

But what if we could harness the power of social networking to change the world?

 
 
 

THE IDEA

 

To develop the world's first social network to create global social change.

The social network will enable individuals to connect with and support the charities and people fighting for the causes they care about by giving their time, money or things.

A user will be able to select the causes they care about, what they want to give and find the charities and people they can support.

There will also be the opportunity to:

  • Create your own profile to track the charities you've supported and impact you've made.

  • Have a personalised ‘causefeed’ that is updated in real-time to offer you new opportunities for doing good.

  • Connect with like-minded people who share your passion for the causes you care about.

This will be the one place people can go to make the change they want to see in the world.
