What NEED does this meet?
This is a way for people to help other people through communication over the Internet. The idea would allow people from one geographic location to post questions/inquiries/answers to those of the same/other region.
What is the APPROACH?
This would be a geographically based approach that would connect individuals/companies with local/international help based on their needs and requirements. Essentially, people would earn points in the system based on the amount of help they provide. These points could then be used to acquire the services of others and so on. Its a win-win situation.
Give a little, take a little, give a little one more time. ~Bob Marley~
What are the BENEFITS to people?
This concept could be used to help people learn how to use a computer, help the environment, cure a cold with natural medicines or just help another needy individual with the skills that they possess. The site could be developed into a variety of categories that are structured in such a way to help people find an answer/help to their problem/situation as quickly as possible.
What is the COMPETITION?
I do not know of any similar services. My idea must win because it is geared to help the largest number of needy people. This could be setup to categorically help those most in need and then progressively work up to help more fortunates souls.
What BUDGET & LOGISTICS are required?
Where there is a will, there is a way.
Good idea. This reminds me of some thoughts about moving from an economy of trying to get the most, to an economy in which giving the most (an economy of generosity), could be in focus. I, for one, have a lot of extra resources concerning skills from computer programming to yoga, which is called on only by the friends I have, instead of being called on in some more organised manner. Please contribute to my free ezine with these thoughts in the form of an article, anyone (www.yoga6d.com).
