SomeDo doesn't replace any volunteer organization, or fund raising activity, it just makes them stronger. Let's take a look:
Church leaders often become aware, before others in a community, when someone needs some help. It may be something recurring, or maybe just a one time need.
SomeDo lets you easily raise money for the causes you care about, by having people in the community sponsor your volunteer activity. It's the same volunteering you've done for years, but we think it's time to extend the reach of your good deeds. You volunteer, the organization confirms it, and then we let people know via social media. Friends and family can sponsor you for a few dollars, or more, and the money goes to the charity you choose.
There's an old business axiom that says, 'if you want to increase something, count it'. Our big goal is to see our scoreboard increase each day.
Each day, we'll update a national map chronicling the good deeds completed the previous day, along with a tally of the number of deeds completed.
Initially, a visitor will see what's been done across the country. As word spreads and more good deeds are registered, we hope you'll be able to find good deeds in your city, and then even in your neighborhood. It's our goal, and hopefully our visitors, to see the number of registered good deeds increase every day!
Each individual good deed will be tagged on the map with a marker.
Clicking on a marker will bring up details about the volunteer, what action they performed, and what charity contributed dollars will go to.
You've probably sponsored someone for a walk, run, or ride. With SomeDo, you can sponsor a volunteer for the good work that they do, whether it be volunteering at a hospital or donating blood.
We heard during focus groups that volunteers don't just want recognition or a reward, they want a 'doubling' of their good work. The volunteer may choose the same place they volunteer, or some other worthy cause. It's all up to the volunteer!
For example, a dog walker at the SPCA could choose to have their sponsors support an animal shelter for dogs, or have the donation go back to the SPCA.
Donors can transparently track their donation as it moves to the charity of the volunteer's choice.
