TBATBA Contact: David Namude
The purpose of the business is to incentivize volunteerism by providing incentives for prospective volunteers. We intend to partner with causes/charities/shelters etc and commercial entities, who would subsequently offer discounts to members/users for every unit of volunteerism. Example below
TBD provides homeless shelter with a way to log volunteer hours/visits (QR code or something similar to log attendance and duration)
Homeless shelter logs volunteer activity of program users
***as the program advances charities will be asked to maintain a profile on the service so that prospective volunteers can find them and know they are participating***
User signs up for the service and downloads the app/visits the website
User uses the app to find a participating charity
User signs up to volunteer through app
User volunteers and completes their side of the logging mechanism
User receives “credit/karma” for volunteering (based on time and intensity as determined by what they did)
Commercial entity side
Commercial entity provides various “prizes” or “discounts” in exchange for “karma points” which are earned by volunteers. The conversion time and rate will depend on which company or prize.
***commercial entity may be able to claim a charitable donation benefit for the discounted portion.
