A face to face platform for helping another person in need.
Benevolently powers pure giving of support from one person to another, for total kindness, with no expectation of return or self-interest.
BENEVOLENTLY IS A PLATFORM FOR KINDNESS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
In today's world, there is a growing need for greater Empathy for others. There are many people in need. Individuals, Groups, Communities all have the opportunity to reach out and help those in need.
There are people in need all around us
People’s needs range from temporary to permanent, and include a range of things they might not know how to do, temporarily unable to do, or need someone to connect with around a shared interest.
Everyone can give something
Everyone has something they can give to another, we just have to take the time to think outside of ourselves to help. We challenge ourselves and you, to give 1% of your time, or about 60 minutes a week, to help someone in need.
Groups provide leadership in Kindness
Benevolently provide Groups opportunities for their members to get into the community and help. Businesses, clubs, and service organizations can make a difference if they show the leadership necessary to support their community.
Communities strengthen themselves
Communities use Benevolently to connect members's friends and families with needs to those in the community that can give.
HOW DOES BENEVOLENTLY WORK?
Benevolently uses technology to connect those in need with those that are able to help them.
Lightweight Tasks & Companionship
Benevolently asks you to help with “lightweight” tasks - basic home repair, animal care, errands, yard work, tutoring & teaching, and companionship.
Unleash Pockets of Time for Givers
Benevolently unleashes the pockets of time when you could stop by the store and share a gallon of milk, or drop by to say hello to someone lonely, but you don’t know who around you could use a little help.
Technology makes it easy to Give
Benevolently takes advantage of app technology so that these acts of kindness flow seamlessly into your schedule, at times and places that work for you.
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO TAKE OUR "1% GIVING CHALLENGE"
Life is busy. Everyone has many things to do.
Make one of those things 60 minutes a week of giving to someone else.
1% = 60 minutes a week
60 minutes a week. That is it. Everyone has 60 minutes a week in their lives where they can be of service to another.
Benevolently will help you
We understand the complexities of today's daily life. Our technology will provide a curated experience around your skills and schedule to make it easy. Think of it like Uber. Except rather than a car showing up to take you somewhere, you show up and radically, positively impact someone's life.
The Secret: You feel awesome
The secret about being selfless is that you feel great. Helping others is its own reward. We are not advocating solipsism, or helping another only because it will make you feel good. Bottom line unless you are totally cold-hearted, you will feel great, and experience what we call a Goodness of Heart. The bigger challenge? Stay anonymous.
Here are what a few of our theoretical users have to say about Compassion and Kindness.
"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive."
HH THE DALAI LAMA
"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others."
