Project recommended by:
The Social Coin
How does it work?
1. When handling a coin, think about the act of kindness you're going to do. It can be helping someone you know, or a complete stranger.
2. Report what you're going to do on the website. Having a goal will help you achieve the attitude you need to perform it..
3. Make it real. That's the most amazing part. Once you’re achieved your goal, you'll feel the positive effect.
4. Give the coin to the person you've helped. He/she will be positively surprised.
5. Pay it forward. Explain to the person, how The Social Coin works, and what has motivated you to help her/him.
Pay it forward
Main featuresIt’s a proven fact, random act of kindness improve people's lives both for the giver, and the receiver. Our money symbolizes commitment, surrender, trust and empathy. Each coin starts the act of kindness chain, which is reported on our website. Each coin has a unique code, and with it, you will be able to follow the path along each life it has touched. The coins are biodegradable, and contain a seed that can be planted at the end of the chain. Any organization can collaborate with The Social Coin by minting social coins which can be tracked in real time, allowing them to measure the positive impact in the world.
Why this is importantWe've realized that performing acts of kindness is a source of universal happiness, any person can benefit from it.
Our goals include the research and massive distribution of social coins, with the aim of improving quality of life around the world (limited by our capabilities).
The Social Coin has been awarded the Youth Ashoka Changemakers 2012 prize.
We want to mint and distribute social coins among volunteer organizations, aiming the initiation of helping chains around the globe.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaignWith the help of thousands of people we want to initiate this Project. Every one who donates will receive a social coin.
To date we have finished 50% of the website (coin tracking) and design.
With this campaign we are launching the project to the world, and at the same time hope to improve it. We will create different research papers which will help us understand how The Social Coin can change people's lives.
In order to launch the project we need to finish our website, purchase the final molds of the coins, finish the packaging dye, and begin production.
