006 — An idea 💡

The problem

At a high level, the problem is twofold:

My unrefined solution — Spoiler it doesn’t solve it all

A two sided charitable marketplace that encourages casual philanthropy coupled with earning opportunities for those in need.

A quick use case

Diana is a single mom with two children from Sioux Falls, South Dakota . She is in need of extra capital to fund her kids extra curricular activities. Timothy has after school piano classes, and Shelly takes ballet. Diana is also able to work more hours as a paralegal if her kids are occupied after school. She hears about us via a facebook ad and decides to sign up. She finishes onboarding and is now signed up as an earner.

What’s next?

I don’t know, but I suspect mostly research. I’d love to eventually build something like this. I’d also be willing to participate in funding for a startup already that is already building something like this.
