When we set out 4 years ago in my first TEDx talk we were asking the question, ‘How do we get 1 billion people into the habit of giving?’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2n5rn6cIoc If a billion people gave $1 to brave projects risking it all to try and solve our worlds deepest and biggest problems we would be a real force to be reckoned with!
Last month we moved $150,000 in donations from awesome people like you to amazing charities solving real problems and in the next couple of weeks we will have moved more than $1,000,000 in the last 365 days!!!
Our social network helps you make social donations in the moment and share that ‘feel good’ moment with your friends.
Network effects are not linear, The goal is not to grow from $1m to $2m, the leap of development is to go from $1m to $10m
A personal goal for me is to get to $1,000,000,000 of $1-$100 donations processed within 365 days globally for amazing causes
We’re currently running at $1,000,000 per year
The next step is to get to $10,000,000 per year
My goal is to get to $1,000,000,000 per year
Many would argue we are 0.1% of the way and still have 99.9% to do.
I say we are well over half way!
Of the 10 digits I want to see we have already achieved 7 of them!!
I wrote the following blog almost 4 years ago when we launched, this was where we achieved our first 2 digits https://archive.daveerasmus.com/the-most-important-pound
Social Web adoption works unlike any other kind of growth we are conditioned to understand.
I have moved to Palo Alto because I need partners who also believe that that we are over half way and also have the resources and scale to help us sort out the next 3 digits.
Who knows after that, I just take one step at a time. I just wanted to take a moment to be thankful we are over half way!
