For a while I had thought that philanthropy was both a luxury as well as a responsibility of the rich. Since meeting Chris & Perfecto @ JourneyOne, my mindset has shifted. Doing good is part of our civic duty to each other, and we need to make it easier for folks to do good.
In comes JourneyOne, an application that helps you learn about causes that you care about & take action on them (ie: by challenging you to give up showers that are longer than 5 minutes, enabling you to volunteer at a local food shelter and encouraging you to donate to an educational not- for-profit in your city). It enables employers to engage their workforce in a meaningful way while making an impact on humanitarian and environmental causes.
I helped them prototype an analytics platform that consolidated missions, actions, donations & many other metrics to better understand the userbase and how to better engage employees.
