CanDo Launches Crowdfunding Platform To Support Local Humanitarians In War-Torn Syria

Press release: July 2017: CanDo, the not-for profit organisation behind the first crowdfunded hospital in Syria, is launching a new crowdfunding platform, where 100% of all money raised for health projects in Syria, will go directly to the people who need it most.

Via people-to-people aid, CanDo challenges the current system where despite 75% of aid being carried out by local humanitarians, only 1% of funding gets to them. By supporting local humanitarians, through projects on the CanDo platform, war-affected communities will receive access to life-saving healthcare services and help reduce the suffering of innocent people.

CanDo led the People’s Convoy last December which, thanks to public display of generosity and solidarity, saw almost £250,000 (270% of the fundraising target) raised in just 12 days to rebuild the last children’s hospital that had been bombed out of action in Aleppo, Syria.

Hope Hospital will continue to be supported by CanDo and public funding via the new platform, this ensures the Independent Doctors Association can provide ongoing neonatal and premature infant care, intensive care and inpatient and outpatient services to Aleppo’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens.

Throughout July and August, CanDo encourages the public to make positive changes in Syria by supporting humanitarian health related projects, including:

  1. Ghiras Al Nahda – Growing mushrooms as a sustainable source of fresh food in a besieged area. Life conditions in in Al Ghouta, Damascus are very harsh and people are suffering from starvation and malnutrition. A team of Mycologists, biologists and technicians, will deliver a 3-day training workshop to teach locals how to grow mushrooms at home so they can provide for their family and neighbours. The project will support 135 families, and therefore help feed over 800 people.
  2. Insan (meaning ‘human’) – A psychosocial programme supporting vulnerable women suffering from the psychological effects of war. This self-help programme titled “12 steps to deal with crisis”, will help Syrian women cope and come to terms with the difficulties facing them during the war.
  3. Hurras (meaning ‘guard or protection’) – A children’s magazine which aims to help children protect themselves during conflict through storytelling. The magazine distributed in cities across Syria and available online, also provides puzzles and games to help children gain knowledge and develop important skills.
  4. Bihar (meaning ’spring’) – Protection services for vulnerable women who may have faced sexual violence. Funding will help train health workers on the ground to conduct workshops with the surrounding community on psychosocial support, reproductive health and gender-based violence.

CanDo’s Founder and CEO, Dr Rola Hallam commented “‘Hope Hospital’ was a clear victory for humanity. While it might seem like a small victory in the face of the continued adversity in Syria, it demonstrated that positive change can occur with hope and the power of people.

CanDo’s new crowd-funding platform gives everyday people the chance to contribute to the work of local humanitarians, including doctors, teachers and volunteers, and help prevent the suffering of Syrian people. We believe people are the next super power. When we come together and join up our efforts, everyone can create transformative and positive change”.

CanDo provides global humanitarians, that’s normal generous-minded people, with an opportunity to save lives and reduce suffering in war-affected communities.

Kimbia and Strength in Members Partner to Release New Report Uncovering 2016 Online Donor Data Trends for Everyday, Peer-to-Peer and Giving Day Donation Channels

Press Release – AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 1, 2017) Kimbia, a leading provider of online fundraising solutions, events and high-volume crowdfunding events, has partnered with Strength in Members, a digital marketing agency specializing in innovative solutions to grow supporter audiences and amplify nonprofit impact, to release, “Donation Trends by Channel: 2016 Donor Data Report.” The report analyzes donor demographics from the roughly $240 million of online donations made through the Kimbia platform in 2016 to uncover trends between everyday, peer-to-peer and giving day donors and the donations they make.

“Even before the dawn of the Internet, philanthropic giving has always been a social activity – from organizing school fundraisers to tithing with other congregants at a place of worship to selling raffle tickets around the neighborhood to support a sports team,” said Peter Genuardi, Founder and CEO of Strength in Members. “Working with Kimbia, we’re now able to show how social connectedness can be used by organizations to improve their fundraising results. We’re excited to share this research with the field.”

Key data by giving channel revealed in the report includes:

  • Donation trends for average gifts and mobile giving
  • Donor demographics for sex, age, education and social presence
  • Organization category types

“We know that adding peer-to-peer and giving day campaigns into the fundraising mix, alongside everyday giving, is crucial for online fundraising growth, but we wanted to look to the data to help organizations and institutions better target their audiences for each campaign type,” said Mark Perkins, Kimbia CEO. “We have built proven practices over the last decade of providing online fundraising solutions and services to the nonprofit space, and we are so pleased to provide the data to support these ideas.”

The companies will be hosting a webinar to discuss the findings of this report on Thursday, August 3 at 1 pm CT. You can register here.

Copies of the report can be downloaded anytime here.

How Do You Offset 6 Million Tonnes of Carbon? One At A Time

This post was originally produced for Forbes.

“In a recent survey of 1,400 adults believing in climate change caused by humans, 75% agree that there is something they can personally do to help the planet, but yet only 40% have taken action,” says Marisa de Belloy, COO of Cool Effect, the crowdfunding site that helps people buy carbon credits simply and affordably.

Americans produce an average of 17 tonnes of carbon per year, she says. The remarkable thing is how affordable it is to offset that production at CoolEffect.org. The site provides a clear price for a one-tonne carbon credit for each project on the site. The lowest price per credit: $4.12. At that price, Americans can offset their entire year’s carbon production for just $70.04.

De Belloy hopes to get the nonprofit site’s users to look past their own carbon offset requirements and to focus instead on supporting great projects, most of which provide a variety of social and environmental benefits aside from carbon offsets.

Honduran Household Hero has sold 130,000 clean cookstoves in the country, not only reducing the amount of wood burned for cooking but also reducing the amount of smoke in homes and the health burden the smoke imposed on the developing country.

A Breath of Fresh Air in Peru is protecting 450,000 acres from deforestation along with protecting the wildlife in the forest, including 400 bird and 3,000 plant species, some of which are unique to this forest.

Wind Power to the People operating in Costa Rica is helping to bring that country to carbon neutrality by 2021. The project provides electricity to 50,000 people. Because the project is structured as a co-op, the local community members benefit.

Marisa de Belloy

As I spoke with de Belloy–you can watch my interview with her at the top of this article–I asked her how she knows that the projects create the carbon reductions claimed on the site. Each project is assessed at least three times before it is posted on the Cool Effect site.

There are several internationally recognized agencies that set standards for carbon offset measurement that perform analyses on each project to determine how much carbon is being offset. Cool Effect not only uses these independent ratings but also performs its own scientific evaluation to determine whether the projects are meeting the standards and if they are being operated effectively.

Jill Tidman, the Executive Director of the Redford Center, a nonprofit film production company focusing on social and environmental issues founded by Robert Redford and his children, used Cool Effect to buy carbon credits to offset the impact of the upcoming film Happening.

“Paramount to our choice of using Cool Effect to offset our own energy impacts was the level of trust and transparency it offers. All of the carbon reduction projects Cool Effect features are verifiably reducing carbon from the atmosphere, while also providing a number of co-benefits for the surrounding communities. From job creation to species protection, to supporting the lives of women and children—there is no shortage of incredible work that these projects are doing,” Tidman said.

She adds, “climate change may be the most difficult and complex challenge humanity has ever faced or ever will face. Addressing the problem is requiring an equally complex, and diverse, set of solutions. Cool Effect’s model of engaging the support of the masses through crowdfunding creates an entry point for people all over the planet to engage.”

Over the years they have operated, most long before Cool Effect was launched, the projects listed on the site have offset 6 million tonnes of carbon.

When I asked de Belloy why she does this work, she responded, “[Climate change] is the fundamental defining issue of our time,” de Belloy said.

Northwest Startup Groundswell Provides Sustainable Funding Model For Nonprofits

Company to raise $1 million new crowdfunding laws to launch first customers

Press Release – WASHOUGAL, Wash. — GroundSwell, a Washington State social purpose corporation based in Washougal, Wash., is shaking up the philanthropic world with a sustainable revenue-sharing approach designed for nonprofit organizations. This month, the company–whose mission is to sustainably fund organizations that make the world a better place–kicked off its final round of investment crowdfunding to raise $1 million for its public launch this fall.

“Other companies, banks, and credit unions offer traditional debit cards. We created GroundSwell because we saw a better way to put technology, banking, and philanthropy together,” said Dr. Daniel Rubano, co-founder and CEO. “To date, we have raised more than a million dollars, and are now in our final phase of fundraising to allow everyone to become part of this movement and support our public launch this fall.”

Money on a Mission

Each time we swipe our credit or debit card, a transaction fee is generated, providing more than $60 billion in revenue to banks. Licensed as a bank, GroundSwell’s business model redirects these fees from big banks back and shares them with partner nonprofits through customized Visa debit card programs. Each time a card is used to make a purchase, the profits generated from the processing fees are shared with the nonprofit partner..

The result is a sustainable revenue stream that helps address the needs of the 1.5 million nonprofits that are underfunded, according to the National Center for Charitable Statistics. Nonprofit members’ Visa debit cards act just like a checking account, with no credit checks, fees, or interest, and are FDIC insured.

“We looked around and saw there was a need to act fast to make our world a better place,” said Joseph Graves, head of Operations & Program Development. “GroundSwell gives us a way to live out our commitment to making a difference and allow anyone to support the organizations they love by simply doing the things they would normally do every day already!”

Become a GroundSwell Investor

Anyone passionate about giving back and supporting nonprofits is invited to become part of the groundswell to share the wealth with those who will use it best. Participants can buy ownership through our partner Wefunder, an investment crowdfunding platform. These funds will support operations for the next 12 months to develop services, expand our nonprofit partner network, and conduct initial testing with early adopters. The minimum investment is $100. Owners will be the first to receive their Money on a Mission VISA debit card pre-loaded with thank you funds to start making a difference. They also will gain access to company updates, insider information, and company store. To learn more or make an investment, visit www.groundswellworld.com/media.

About Groundswell

Established in 2015, GroundSwell is putting money on mission by servicing nonprofit organizations dedicated to doing good in the world. By creating the opportunity for all of us to make a difference every day, GroundSwell provides sustainable revenue for underfunded nonprofits by redirecting visa debit revenue from big banks.

ABOUT ROMP: ROMP is a technology-based, nonprofit organization, which provides high quality prosthetic care in underserved populations, thus enhancing mobility and unlocking human potential. ROMP believes that prosthetic limbs and orthotic braces are not simply medical devices, but instruments of personal empowerment. ROMP recognizes the dual hardships of living in poverty with a disability, and stand in solidarity with those who are made to suffer from an unequal distribution of care.

Since 2005, ROMP has seen over 6,000 patients with custom-made prosthetic and orthotic devices in Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico, Haiti, Pakistan, and the US. The organization believes that training locals to provide ongoing services in their communities is the only way to fix a long-term problem. For example, the ROMP clinic in Guatemala is staffed by highly trained individuals from the community and is open to patients year-round. ROMP believes that all human beings are made to be mobile, regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status, and that physical mobility is a critical component of social mobility and the pursuit of life’s many aspirations.

THIS YEAR’S CLIMB! This year’s celebrity and influencer climb is of Cayambe, Ecuador’s third highest mountain rising to almost 19,000 feet. On July 27th & 28th Americans and Ecuadorians, both amputees and able-bodied athletes, will attempt to summit Cayambe. Among the group’s climbers is Maryland’s 61st Governor, Martin O’Malley. The expedition is to bring awareness to the unequal distribution of prosthetic care around the world and is a symbol of the power of the human spirit and what can be achieved when given access to proper care. The Cayambe climb will be led by world record speed climber, Karl Egloff with Cumbre Tours.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? Volunteers throughout the world will host their own climbs in solidarity with the elite team in various locations. People of all backgrounds and all abilities will join in this global movement to raise awareness and funds for individuals who cannot afford or do not have access to prosthetic services. Please log onto the organization’s website (ROMPGlobal.org) and social media pages (Facebook.com/ROMPGlobal, Twitter.com/ROMPGlobal, and @ROMPGlobal) to view and sign up for local climbs. All climbs are being raised through Crowdrise, and the organization is still seeking sponsorships.

Lice Clinics of America Announces Equity Crowdfunding Campaign

The World’s Largest Network of Lice Removal Clinics Creates Unique Investment Opportunity with Title III Regulation Crowdfunding Campaign

Press Release – Salt Lake City, UT (June 28, 2017)Lice Clinics of America®, the world’s largest lice-treatment products and services company, announced the launch of its Title III Regulation Crowdfunding Campaign (Reg CF), allowing accredited and non-accredited investors to purchase equity in the well-established company.

Lice Clinics of America has grown rapidly, doubling sales in each of the last three years under the leadership of CEO Claire Roberts, to $7.6 million in 2016 and is now seeking to raise money in equity crowdfunding.

“We think our Reg CF offering will be very unique for both investors and supporters of what we do,” said Roberts. “This is more than just about raising capital to advance and expand Lice Clinics of America product and service offerings. We want people to know our story, including our philanthropic and community work, our mission to put an end to head lice, as well as to see this as a business opportunity where failure of the leading global brands has created great opportunity for innovation.”

With supportive capital from 37Ventures, LLC, plus an engaged and passionate group of accredited angel investors, Lice Clinics of America has grown to more than 250 clinics in 17 nations and recently passed the 250,000 treatment mark with its patented and FDA-cleared AirAllé® dehydration medical device and method.

Lice Clinics of America is seeking investments through StartEngine, an online equity crowdfunding platform co-founded by Activision co-founder Howard Marks.

“Companies can begin this process at any time – whether they are in very early stages or experiencing massive growth,” said Marks. “This solution to financing helps entrepreneurs stay true to their missions and maintain control of their companies. Consumer-owned means keeping the companies on track and allowing them to grow with their customer base.”

The campaign will feature a video highlighting the experiences of families at a women’s shelter in Texas, to which Lice Clinics of America has provided free treatments and products. The shelter suffered from a lice infestation for over a year, unable to cure it with the leading OTC products that no longer work because of pesticide-resistance. With Lice Clinics of America’s intervention, the lice were gone and the shelter became a true refuge for the clients.

“Lice Clinics of America is committed to the communities in which we operate, so no one gets left behind,” adds Roberts. “Yes, we are raising capital to supplement our ongoing growth strategy, but more importantly, we want to expand our network of supporters and attract people interested in helping us promote family health through accurate information and products and services that really work.”

In addition to its focus on family health, Lice Clinics of America is unique because of its ownership and leadership. Half of the corporate leadership team is comprised of women; and 75 percent of the clinics are owned by women. While lice can affect anyone in a family, the chore of dealing with infestations usually falls to moms; and girls tend to get lice more frequently than their brothers. The Reg CF campaign video reflects this female reality and seeks to appeal to women who have previously supported family health causes, and who are interested in equity crowdfunding.

For additional information on Lice Clinics of America’s Reg CF campaign, please visit our investment page.

ABOUT LICE CLINICS OF AMERICA

Lice Clinics of America stands for healthy families and healthy kids, no matter where they live or what their life circumstance is. Our mission is to provide caregivers and medical professionals globally with lice-treatment solutions that are non-toxic, pesticide-free, science-based, completely effectively, and most of all, affordable.

With more than 150 clinics in the US and over 100 internationally, and new products now available at Walmart and other leading retailers, Lice Clinics of America is the world’s largest provider of urgent care lice treatment. Our expert clinicians treat and cure head lice infestations in a single one-hour treatment. The Lice Clinics of America brand is owned by Larada Sciences, Inc. For more information visit www.liceclinicsofamerica.com.

Based in Los Angeles, the company was created in 2013 by Howard Marks, co-founder of Activision, and Ron Miller. StartEngine is committed to revolutionizing the ways startups are funded, thereby helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

WeFunder To Offer Investment In Recoup Cold Roller

24-year-old’s invention, used by slews of professional athletes, opens capital raise

Press Release – DENVER, CO, June 28, 2017 – 24-year-old entrepreneur Matt Hyder has partnered with WeFunder, the largest regulation crowdfunding portal connecting startups with investors online, for his company’s first capital raise. The crowdfunding service will help connect Hyder to a potential investment of $1.07 million in Recoup Fitness.

“It’s really exciting to give people the chance to join us and become a part of our journey at Recoup Fitness,” said Hyder. “I am confident in our team, our ability to scale and continue to innovate with new products in the pipeline. With the potential investors we will meet through WeFunder, we can be the leading name in injury and sports recovery.”

Hyder turned an $8 prototype into a multi-million-dollar company when he launched Recoup Fitness in 2015. Recoup’s flagship product, the Cold Roller, is a two-in-one recovery/massage tool for relief from bodily aches and paints. Roll the Recoup Cold Roller over sore, achy muscles for concentrated self-myofascial release, toss it in the freezer for up to six hours of cold massage, or combine the two for faster overall recovery. Hyder developed the device, after receiving a basketball injury.

Recoup Fitness is a company designed to help athletes and everyday individuals recover faster from injury, combining the benefits of cold massage therapy and foam rolling to reduce inflammation and aid in post-workout recovery. The cold, steel surface releases metabolic waste products and toxins, while relaxing the muscles. Since its inception, the product has been crucial for top-caliber athletes and trainers, in optimizing the recovery process, while minimizing recovery time.

Wefunder uses a provision in the 2012 JOBS Act which allows unaccredited investors to provide equity for entrepreneurial undertakings. The Recoup Fitness raise begins with an investment as low as $100.00.
