Crisis of Meaning, Connection
In this time of Covid, economic distress and social justice struggles, people need support and help in ways not seen in generations - and we need the unity and sense of shared purpose that altruism creates.
Luckily, there is also a surge of people who want to help and engage in this type of support. Lots of these people don’t know how to help - where to start, how to engage, and to do so in a way that works for their own impacted lives. That’s where Benevolently comes in.
Benevolently is a platform/app that matches people in need with people who want to support them. It makes being a good person easy and creates the heart feeling of doing the right thing at a crucial moment.
Neuroscience, mindfulness and social emotional practices
People have an innate sense that helping others is simply the 'right thing to do.' Neuroscience research in recent years has proven that our brains are wired to be 'pro-social'; we are designed to be helpful to others for the continued survival of the species.
Benevolently has combined this research with the best practices in mindfulness and social/emotional awareness, and incorporated these practices into our app and platform.
When a person in need receives an act of kindness from someone using Benevolently, not only is the benefit provided to the recipient, but the process provides benefit to the giver at the same time.
