About Sanctuary Homes Crowdfunding Campaign Hate groups and people who threaten or harm others are growing. These groups and people are located around the world and continue to recruit and grow in number. Today, hate groups in the USA are the highest in 20 years. Unfortunately, there are very few technical innovations to help victims protect themselves against these acts of hate. Radius helps those being threatened or who live in fear of these acts by providing them a mobile app that can quickly locate sanctuary locations near them. By simply clicking a button, users can locate any sanctuary home or sanctuary business near them. All sanctuary locations have been vetted by the local community they live in. Radius does not monitor or collect any data with its sanctuary services and our servers will be located in countries that protect the rights of our members. Surrounding privacy and security, our members' personal information is treated with the highest priority. Is Sanctuary Homes and Sanctuary Businesses ready to use in the Radius mobile app now? Sanctuary Homes and Sanctuary Businesses; privacy focused, locally vetted, sanctuary homes and other sanctuary locations. We have completed phase 1 of Radius and it’s now live. Here’s a list of what Radius provides now. - Sanctuary Homes & Businesses — helps those being threatened or hurt by quickly locating safe places near them - Allows anyone with a home office the ability to share it with other members who are local and need a place to work (think AirBnB, but for shared home office space) - Helps volunteers, activists and nonprofits work and network together - Provides all members a team creation tool for team projects and a jobs directory where individual and team work projects will be posted Radius is free for all users and we intend to keep it that way. It’s for everyone to use, even if you have no money. In order to keep these services free we need to build phase 2. This crowdfunding campaign will build Phase 2, allowing us to not require outside funding and continue providing free sanctuary services Radius has completed phase 1, allowing us to bring sanctuary services, home office share, job tools, and a job directory to our members. It took us over 2 years to build phase 1 because we basically had zero funds, forcing us to work at a very slow pace. The funds raised by this crowdfunding campaign will allow us to build phase 2 of Radius which include education and mentorship services, a person-to-person payment gateway to receive and send funds, Smart Contracts for work projects, Blockchain to support the services above, and more. Once Phase 2 is complete, Radius will be completely self-sustainable, allowing us to continue providing free services to all members. Allocation of campaign funds used All funds will be used to build phase 2. We anticipate this period to be 12-14 months, starting from the time this campaign ends. Funds will be used for; 65% > Technical development; programmers, tech project management and other specialty skills 25% > Server hosting and data storage - servers/tech will be located in countries that protect our members privacy, not the demands of bully countries 10% > Legal and support servicesDonate Now
Artemis Wild Synopsis: Artemis Wild is on a mission to empower you to radiate from the inside out. We are bringing back the ancient art of adornment with reusable face and body jewels and sparkle products that support you in showing up strong and radiant within yourself. If you have met either of Artemis Wild’s founders, Abby Wolff or Lakshmi Dady, you have probably experienced our passion for life and our desire to help people be the fullest expression of themselves. Artemis Wild is two women’s journey to remind people that they are brilliant, honored, beautiful and emboldened to show up wholeheartedly. It’s our way of carrying on the great poet Hafiz’s words: “I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” - Hafiz of Shiraz Since Artemis Wild’s inception 9 months ago, we have been self-funded. In this time, we worked with the best engineers and adhesive specialists in the business and innovated reusable face and body jewelry on hypoallergenic, medical-grade adhesive. Our product is unlike anything existing on the market because of the strength of our adhesive and our intentional designs and messaging. Ask: After a summer sales tour in seven states, at six music festivals, countless events, and boutiques across the Western United States, we know we have an incredibly unique product that appeals to people from all walks and ages of life. In order to get these gorgeous jewel masks in the hands and hearts of as many people as possible, we need your help. We are ready to up-level our scale and impact. With $30,000 we will purchase the minimum quantity of adhesive, at $14,000. The remaining $16,000, will pay for business development including manufacturing, distribution, and web development. Just like it’s founders, this campaign is all in. We have to reach our entire goal in order to receive any of the funds. We are counting on you to help us actualize the Artemis Wild dream and spread dazzling experiences for the greatest good. Each of our perks was intentionally created to have more value than retail pricing, therefore you benefit more by supporting Artemis Wild than if you were to purchase the same items elsewhere. Talk about a win-win! Each pack is designed to elevate your mood, bring you joy, and create opportunities for connection with others. We hope you take the opportunity to experience our unique perks. We even have custom perks, such as, a personalized affirmation video all about your greatness, a bespoke marketing consultation with Abby, Integral Life Coaching with Lakshmi, or an opportunity to make us do something ridiculous via truth or dare. Impact Supporting this campaign will not only empower two burgeoning female entrepreneurs but also support women’s empowerment on a larger scale. We believe that empowered women empower women, which is why Artemis Wild donates 1% of sales to uplifting women’s empowerment causes. We call it 1% for Empowerment. Empowered people, empower women Experience the art of adornment, intentional glamour and self-empowerment. No matter what perk you purchase, we are so grateful for your support. Every donation counts. Please spread the Artemis Wild movement further by sharing this Indiegogo page on your social media platforms and texting it to your friends and family.

Overview Although best efforts were made to deliver the product according to the mission and intent of the campaign, Daplie was unable to fulfill as intended. Refunds are unavailable. Please send any communications to [email protected] - Taking Back the Internet Connect (formerly Cloud) empowers you to "Take Back the Internet". Take back your photos from Dropbox, take back your phone from iCloud, take back your email from Google, take back your social network from Facebook, take back your Digital Life from these "Internet Kings". Connect lets you literally put back the "I" in Internet. Join Us, take back your digital freedom and redeem your digital soul. Meet Connect. The World's First Home Server for Everyone. For Everyone For individuals, families, grandparents, students, and even developers. Imagine owning the latest in technology without any of the learning curve. We've designed Connect to be "Plug & Play". Connect is so easy to set up and use, anyone can do it. Simply plug Connect into your home internet and download the Daplie app on your device. Then, choose a name for your Connect, a web address like "smithfamily.com," and Connect does the rest. Zero technical know-how required. All your stuff in one place. Imagine finding photos on your phone from 10 years ago, instantly. We believe all your digital content should be in one place, in the privacy of your home and backed up to devices you trust, not scattered "somewhere out on the internet". Connect helps you to centralize your digital life by downloading the content from your devices, external hard drive(s), and existing cloud storage(s) and then uploading your content to Connect, automatically. Giving you access to all of your content, on every device, from anywhere. On the go back-up Imagine never having to choose which photo to delete off your phone as you've run out of space, again. We feel your pain. Some memories shouldn't be deleted. With Connect you now have the option to automatically free up space on your phone by sending your photos or videos to Connect, securely, even while you're on the go. Why didn't somebody think of that before...It's Genius. As much storage as you want We believe you should have space for your entire digital life on every device you own. With Connect, if you need more space at home just keep on stacking. And if 8 Terabytes aren't enough, no worries, by plugging in your own storage into the back of Connect you have virtually unlimited storage. Stackable Storage, No Monthly Fees Imagine never paying monthly cloud storage fees, ever again. We believe your personal digital life shouldn't be held ransom, by anyone. Especially by a company that gives you a phone with less storage than a computer from the 90's. It's like 2016, isn't it?Note: custom domains must be renewed each year, as per ICANN regulation. See FAQ. No Redundant Purchases Oh, and just buy your music, movies, and books once, for goodness sake, Connect works with all of your content on all your devices. That means whether you're Android or Apple, the whole family can stream all the content on any device. Share it with the people you choose. We believe your personal stuff should belong to you and no one else. Not Facebook. Not Google. With Connect, not even Daplie has access! When you share your stuff you clearly see who has access and can just as easily take that access away. No more annoying advertisements that just get in the way. Connect is, by far, the best social experience you'll ever have. A safe place, or many Connect secures your digital stuff against malicious hackers with some very serious security techniques. It's, quite literally, a safe for your digital stuff. Also, to protect yourself against physical theft or data loss, grab another Connect (or borrow space from a friend who has one) and it will securely make a copy to the second Connect (like at the office) over the internet. Back up to Connect devices of as many trusted individuals as you want. Connect isn't just another "dropbox clone" Connect is a server that has apps to view, manage, and stream all of your favorite content. Stream your music and movies. View and share all of your photos. Communicate, update, and share with your friends on your own private social network (vanity domain and email included), sync all your files across all your devices, host your own blog from home, etc. And for developers who are looking to develop apps on the decentralized web, here is your chance. Connect takes care of all the security, authentication, etc. so you can just build on top of a simple to use API. Here's to the crazy ones. We remember what it was like to hear the Internet literally "dial-up." And we've watched as the Internet Kings have made billions off our "user data." Today, we are making a stand and Taking Back the Internet. With Connect, we are empowering you to quite literally put the "I" back in Internet and redeem your digital soul. However, without you, it is a lost cause. But, "We have hope. Rebellions are built on hope." You are that hope. Join us. Until Now... Where you hang your @ We believe everybody should have a space on the web to call home. But it’s complicated. As a developer that just wants to plug in a Raspberry Pi and host a blog, there’s just way too much to learn and keep track of just to hole punch and tunnel - UPnP, port-forwarding, IPs, domain name registration, DNS, etc - to be able to set up a simple hello world from your house. We wanted to automate all of the technical Internet-y stuff away. To make a long story short, we ended up having to do it on our own, but it resulted in a suite of Command Line tools and Web APIs for secure tunneling and Dynamic DNS, which you can use not only with Connect, but with any device so that you can easily run your websites, email, etc out of your home or office. Like Heroku and Raspberry Pi had a love child. A lot of the time you don’t want to worry about configuring your server, about databases, about authentication or security measures. You just want to focus on code that does cool stuff. We wanted to simplify the experience so that both simple HTML5 Web Apps and full-stack Containers are just a daplie push away. The Internet of Things Right now connected home automation is budding and IoT is still the wild west. We see a future for it, but it needs a private, secure, direct connection to the home. We want to make it simple for devs and hobbyists to begin projects with IoT devices, without worrying about the infrastructure setup so we’re automating DNS, tunneling, firewalls and other technical aspects so you can get to work on the things that are important to you. FAQ Are any recurring fees to Daplie required? There are no monthly fees required to use Daplie. What kind of internet do I need? Any broadband connection will do. Connect plugs into your home's modem or router directly via a normal Ethernet cable, which provides the most reliable and fastest access. If you live in an HOA which does not provide access to Ethernet, you can use a WiFi-Ethernet bridge. Satellite connections that are not always-on or that have strict upload limits may cause difficulty accessing Connect or streaming movies. Dial-up is not supported. Are there user limits? There is no limit to the number of users on the device or people you can share with or give access to on your Connect. There are no charges for users. You decide who can have access and what level of access they receive. Each user has a unique login. We provide the hardware and infrastructure, but you own the network. Do you use RAID? No. Our general philosophy is that if there's a solution that fixes part of a problem and another solution that completely fixes a problem, we focus on the complete solution. RAID only solves the problem of local redundancy (copying one drive to another in the same room) and we believe that off-site redundancy is an all-around better solution, so we recommend linking two or more Connect units together.That said, you can use a RAID drive with Connect via USB. What if my house burns down? We recommend that you keep backups. For example, you could link two Daplie systems together (perhaps yours and a family members).A backup is only a backup if you have 2 copies. For example, if you have one copy on some cloud storage and another copy on your computer, you have a backup. If you delete the original from your computer and only have the file on some cloud storage, you don't have a backup. Also, how many times has your house burned down in comparison to how many times a "the cloud" service has either lost, deleted, replaced, or ransomed your stuff? "the cloud" services go out of business and change product lines or fail to renew content licenses on a regular basis. In all likelihood your house is a much, much safer place for your digital life than Google or Dropbox. Do I have to use one of your hard drives? Absolutely not. A regular USB drive can be used, but you must make sure it is empty when you start using it with Connect. Note, however, that most drives are not intended for nor warrantied for cloud system use. For those who want the most reliable drives and the smoothest experience, we offer storage drives that plug right into the server and do not require any extra cords and don't take up much space. What are the Technical Specifications? On the inside, Connect is essentially a tablet without the screen and using faster and more reliable ethernet instead of WiFi. The exact production specifications will vary depending on volume, but will be multi-core ARM processor with 2GB RAM, 1Ghz, 2x Ethernet, 2x USB, Cold Storage Wallet with physical button. What about Security? Security is multi-faceted. We focus on designing solutions that are technically secure (encryption, keypairs, tokens, etc), secure against social exploits (dialogs, codes, authentication), and convenient to use (because if it isn't convenient people just find a way around it). How is this different from a NAS? This is different from a NAS in the same way that an iPad is different from a build-it-yourself Desktop computer. It's easier to set up and use, has apps, is smaller, less powerful, more convenient, and doesn't require technical skills. It also is built to expand and connect to other devices and manage your smart home and blockchain assets and applications. Can this work without static IPs from the ISP? Yes, it can. Won't I have to configure my router?Donate Now
Overview project outpour is a nonprofit in charlotte bringing mobile showers to the streets to promote holistic health and dignity for humans who are homeless. the down payment for the trailer has been paid but we need your help to bring it home! we are raising $20,000 to cover the remaining balance, insurance for the truck and trailer, and to stock the trailer with supplies. every dollar goes directly to getting this trailer on the streets, providing a basic human right - dignity. a little about project outpour we exist to fight a simple yet significant issue in charlotte – the lack of access to showers and toilets for men and women who are moving through homelessness by putting a mobile shower unit on our streets. why? it’s simple. dignity matters and is a very real desire of every single person, regardless of circumstance. think about how good you feel after a shower. we bet you feel recharged, refreshed, confident and ready to tackle the day. regardless of circumstance, every person deserves to feel uplifted. we will literally set up shop on the streets. our customized shower trailer is 20 feet long and comes complete with two private bathrooms – one of which that’s slightly larger to accommodate families and persons with disabilities. each bathroom has its own sink, mirror, toilet and shower. guests are given 15 minutes, and we provide them with any supplies they may need. what we need & where your donation goes we sent our down payment to a speciality trailer company in chicago so our mobile shower unit is being built right this minute. we are raising $20,000 and here's where that money will go: the remaining balance for the trailer. comprehensive insurance for the truck and trailer. supplies - we will be supplying all the usual shower suspects (shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, etc.) but things like nail clippers, underwear, feminine products, etc, are needed too. when we exceed our campaign goal (not if but when, right?!), that money will help support operational expenses (fuel, staff to drive the truck and set up shop, security, permits, etc). we're hoping to have a truck donated (that will pull that trailer) but if not, funding from this campaign will help us purchase a gently used pickup. the impact according to mecklenburg county’s point in time count report, 1,668 people identified themselves as homeless in mecklenburg county in 2018 (up 13% from 2017). we will be able to meet them, literally, where they are, with our mobile shower trailer. many of the men and women we know who are homeless will tell you that a shower is the difference between setting up an interview or not; is the difference between landing that job; is the difference between keeping that job. we feel opportunities present themselves when people are treated with dignity. we feel something as basic as a shower can be a catalyst for change in the lives of those we serve. risks & challenges believe it or not, the biggest challenge is water disposal. we won't bore you with the details of black water and gray water but trust us, you don't want those dumped just anywhere. we are working with charlotte water to work through all of those details. we've also had to overcome naysayers or people who don't think a shower is a big deal. our response to that - dignity is a basic human right, and so is regular access to clean water to maintain one's hygiene. some of the push back has come from people concerned a shower isn't "enough." we will serve as a safe place for men and women moving through homelessness and we will serve as connectors. that's what makes our model so cool - while our guests are waiting to shower, we have the opportunity to engage them in authentic connection to discern their greater needs. through those connections, we'll be able to direct them to resources in the city to get them on a greater path of self-sufficiency and ultimately, housing. other ways you can help while we hope you'll donate to our cause (even $1 makes a difference), there are other ways you can get involved: follow us on facebook and instagram (@projectoutpourclt). email [email protected] with any questions, ideas, or non-monetary donations. you can check out our website for a complete list of on-going items we'll need. share this campaign with your community of family, friends, colleagues and strangers (hey, strangers share in our space with us, right?!) and that's all there is to it! thank you for supporting our mission.Donate Now
Our Story Remember someone sharing their story or experience and it challenged and motivated you enough to want to change your life? Remember the sense of gratitude and connection you felt after someone shared their story with you? This campaign is to develop a feature on A Lady's Voice Network, ALVN, for women to upload their personal stories on video and make a difference in another woman's life. WE NEVER STOP GROWING! I had great plans and a timeframe for success when I was younger; what i'd do at 30 and then 40 and then 50 etc. When I got to 30 I realized life had its own tide and some things I couldn't control. But what I could control was who I was to become inside. It was a time of reflection and growth, needed at that stage in my journey. I met many women from different walks of life on the same journey, and it led to great mentor/mentee relationships as we grew together. Fast forward and I founded ALVN to merge my skill in movie making with a desire to help women grow, believing that in relationships and gentle reflections - as we are exposed to insightful information - do we change. On ALVN we have short films, documentaries, personal stories and a conversation forum to bring women together, so they feel intrinsically valuable and empowered to live their lives to their definition of success. Our newest feature to be added will complete the circle, and this campaign helps with that. OUR ASK Our technical team needs $8,000 to build a video upload feature on the website that enables our users upload their video stories straight from a smart phone. In addition, this quote will allow us to fix mobile optimization problems and minor upgrades needed on the website. Any amount raised above $8,000 will be used for marketing and PR. We are offering great perks, some as exciting as movie credit for you or your brand, or a chance to participate in producing our documentary street series. Check them out! The impact of this campaign will be felt by many because this feature on ALVN site will do the following: Give women a way to impact other women through their life experience or story. Give women a sense of purpose as many women want to be fruitful and give back. Their story is their gift. Help women understand themselves more, learn something new, and hopefully find solutions as needed. Give women a safe, positive space to be heard and validated. Build community. Other Ways You Can Help Any amount adds up, so don't think anything is too little. In addition, you can help by spreading the word about our campaign to your circles of friends and associates.

THE HEADQUARTERS Our business has previously been located in two small historic homes with guesthouses in downtown Phoenix (super cute! see below). We’ve happily operated out of four buildings on our little compound, but now we’re ready to rise like Phoenixes. After months of research, we purchased our own commercial space and got the keys on September 6th! Centrally-located, it’s one block north of the Melrose District, a hip, growing strip of local shops, coffeehouses + restaurants. Our 15,000 sq ft historical building has good bones, but there are some necessary updates + repairs that are high cost. We need a new roof, a fresh coat of paint, concrete floor polish, and other improvements. THE BIG LEAP Our team is amazingly talented at making beautiful things + experiences. And -- owning commercial real estate is a huge leap for us. We’ve never been motivated by money. Our motivation has always been to bring more peace into people’s lives + reconnect them with their full potential. But in order to benefit more people, we need to take this risk. Honestly, it's the boldest move I’ve made in my entire life. We’re excited to use this building to bring to life our apothecary + store, weekly “happy hours” with mood-boosting beverages and other multi-sensory events and workshops. We’ll offer botanical bodywork treatments and flower ceremonies and experiences. WHY THIS MATTERS We live in a fast-paced world, glued to our smartphones + computers. Over a third of us have trouble sleeping every single night. Stress is a constant, with 1 in 5 American adults on medications for stress and over 7 million kids on medications for ADHD. Wifi signals + cell phone towers are sending unprecedented levels of electromagnetic activity coursing through our bodies, every minute. We don’t spend enough time in nature to rebalance all of that. But flower elixirs bring nature to you. Why does this matter? Because what we do really works. Within hours or days of implementing flower elixirs, you experience less irritation. Life becomes smoother. Stress begins to dissolve. You sleep more soundly. Overwhelming emotions get softer and lessen. You notice a sense of perspective and relief. Over time, you let go of relationships that don’t work, form new ones that do, open more fulfilling career paths, and do things with joy that you used to be afraid of. Resilience is unveiled, self-limiting beliefs dissolve and your talents begin to shine. Your dreams awaken. You become the best version of you. In short, our flower elixirs accelerate the process of getting you from where you are to who you want to be. During my international studies of flower essences, I was taught that if even 3% of the world’s population is taking flower elixirs, it will change the outcome of the future for the better. From the beginning, that has been our goal. We intend to create a worldwide ripple effect of happiness.

Hey there! My name is Maggie, and I'm a professional violinist and educator in New York City. I've been teaching violin for over ten years, and along with my teaching colleagues, I've noticed a gap in instrumental instruction in our city. So many of our young, Suzuki violin students take private lessons in their own homes, and they miss the experience of playing in a group class with other children (which is a crucial component of Suzuki method learning!) Our students and their families expressed the desire to play their instruments with other learners, particularly in convenient locations. With this need grew the idea for Bow & Heart. Bow & Heart is a group class program that serves as a collective of Suzuki students, their teachers, and their families. We meet in community arts centers and schools in locations throughout New York City, celebrating our communities' assets while playing our instruments together. We build our confidence and motivation and open our eyes and ears to one another, working to string together our musical communities while developing a deeper love for the violin. What We Need At Bow & Heart, we charge our students a minimal fee to attend classes. This means it's crucial for us to raise funds in order to pay our teachers for their hard work! Additionally, for us to bring instruction to many communities throughout New York City, we need contributions to help us book class venues and purchase class supplies. Finally, we're building-in a "guest artist" component to our classes, where we'll bring in some of NYC's finest artists to help show our students all the capabilities of their music making. Here's a breakdown of what your contribution can do for us: $20 pays for a Suzuki method book or post-class snack $50 pays for two music stands for class $75 provides payment to one of our teachers per class $100 covers the fee for class rental space $200 provides payment for a guest artist Any funds raised beyond $4,000 will help us continue our classes over the summer and next fall, and expand our program to even more neighborhoods! What You Get We'd be incredibly grateful for your support. We'll let you know exactly where your contribution's going, and each support level has a different perk: invitations to guest artist classes, an arrangement of your chosen song performed by our faculty, a thank-you from our students, and more! Why This Matters There's something pretty great that happens when we play our instruments alongside one another. Along with making beautiful music, we develop an awareness of the sights and sounds coming from our neighbors. We move from what may seem like an isolating experience to a joyfully inclusive one. And along the way, we build a musical community that can be a lasting one. When I was little, I looked forward to Suzuki group class as much as I did a birthday party. I knew I'd share music with my friends, learn something new, and have a blast doing it. Our teachers at Bow & Heart share these similar experiences and want to create a space for young violinists to do the same. Other Ways You Can Help We're so happy you're here to learn about us, even if you can't contribute to our fund! We'd appreciate any help in spreading the word. You can always: Share this campaign via social media and e-mail. Support us on Instagram Facebook Our websiteDonate Now
Always Giving Gratitude to Life Giving Waters We live on the Western Slope of Colorado and are very aware of the water crisis. The Colorado River is the Most endangered river in the United States. Our Grand Valley Hamlet has created a Movement called Water Comes First. This movement is about bringing awareness to the people about the energetics of Gratitude to elemental beings, such as the Colorado River and the springs, creeks, lakes, the weather and it's rains and snows. It takes time, money and great effort to mobilize our people to a different way of thinking. If you give gratitude to someone, you build a relationship with them. This is how it works with water, too. But this is a huge mind shift, to the heart. Help us to remember our relationship to this finite being, this gift we call water. Help the weather workers and the Sacred Water Keepers do their part in building awareness of being in right relationship to the source of life.We need $2500 to cover expenses of indigeneous weather workers coming here to help us with our ceremonies and work with the water. They are our teachers and we are doing the work from our hearts. If we reach the entire goal we will pay back money that we personally used to fund our Nahuatl weather work teacher to help us work with rain here on the Grand Mesa. We will also be bringing him back to teach us the song of the Colorado River, to build awareness of the need for this type of sacred activism. Since the initial program for Water Comes First and the specific work on the Grand Mesa, a sacred site for weather, we have had rains (since July) and snows that have exceeded our usual annual rainfall. What we thought would be a drought in this specific area was not. When the Colorado River reaches Her Mother, the Pacific Ocean again (she hasn't made it to Her in many years) the Ocean will be grateful and begin to send rains again to the Southwest. Grandmother Ocean is forgetting the song of the Colorado River, and therefore, like forgetting the words to any song, She doesn't know to send the rains back to the Southwest.The Colorado River needs your help. A few good people know what to do. Help them with their work of their lifetime. Get the word out...let people know. We are looking for Sacred Water Keepers.

we can buy 9 bikes with trailer, one bike with a special trailer which can be used to transport people in emergency, and tool kits for each bike and trailer.With them, local people can transport water, food, start their own business or even be easily transported to the nearest clinic/hospital. The Impact- TransportOur aim is to solve the mobility problems that people have in rural areas. In those areas, people have to walk long distances to get water or to transport goods. With bikes and trailers, people can transport water and other goods more easily.This way, they can reduce the time and the energy they spend with finding and fetching water. This means that people can spend more time with their family, go to school, play, find a job or create their own activity. - People in emergencyAs there is no doctor around in most of the time and the hospitals are far away from many communities, we want to provide the communities an emergency trailer where people in emergency can be transported. - Support local businessZambikes is the company which provides these items. This company is a social and local business and if we reach our goal, we (and you) will support it. - EducationWe want to create a cooperative so people can share these items in the community. At the same time, we are going to teach people about how to repair bikes and trailers and to promote income generating activities.We are also going to teach people about health and sanitation and about how to deal with emergencies.As we will be working with pre-schools, schools, women clubs and youth clubs, we believe that we can mobilize the community through meetings, presentations, workshops, games and practical activities. This way, people can not only use this system after we leave, but they can also serve as an example for nearest communities. What we need- 9 bikes + trailers - 1 Zambulance (Bike + emergency trailer)- Tool Kits for each bike and trailerDonate Now

Our pets are part of our lives and the path we walk together should be fan and rejoicing.Another disadvantage of urban life is that we are disconnected with nature, which can cause stress, depression and mood disorders. Nature is an important source of our health, we can always find comfort and calm in the company of woods and animals, and reset our brains.The lack of green areas and the fact that the overwhelming majority of parks in our city are not pet friendly compelled us to create a green and happy corner for ALL.AGARAK will be a center for fostering a harmonious lifestyle with nature, resulting healthy thinking and well-being.

Overview United Earth Energy (UEE), is a renewable energy company, and clean earth movement, committed to making a significant regenerative impact for our world. We turn the world's trash into clean energy, distilled water and renewable by-products. Our patented technology is mobile, runs 24 hours per day and offers communities the most effective and affordable waste-to-energy systems in the world. Support us in completing our flagship demo site so we can share this technology with the world. Our Mission UEE exists for one simple reason, to guarantee a cleaner and healthier world today. Our purpose is to create the technologies, systems and education required to end the world's waste issues for good. NOTE: WE ARE BEYOND THE CONCEPT PHASE. And, because of our inability to showcase video footage, from the prior systems sold to clients by our partner Biodiverse Energies, LLC, we are unable to declare that we are in the prototype or manufacturing phase here on Indiegogo. Biodiverse Energies is now working exclusively with United Earth Energy and together we are focused on bringing this technology to every region on Earth. Social Challenge One of the horrible atrocities that our planet faces is the ever-expanding trash mountains and islands that are developing, on our land and in our oceans, due to human waste. Humankind creates an exponentially increasing supply of trash (i.e., consumables, packaging, waste tires, organic matter etc.). Our cities and towns all have landfills that no one wants in their community; these landfills continue to spread and pollute our atmosphere, water supplies and environments. In the developed world, we either stick our trash in landfills, which creates environmental hazards, or ship it away for other less socio-economically fortunate communities to deal with. Countries like China are closing their doors to receive imported trash. Shipping all that trash, along with intentional dumping, has allowed hundreds of billions of pounds of garbage to find its way into our oceans which is killing marine life and entire bio-systems. Our oceans are on the verge of a great extinction and its predicted there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050. The inability to deal with this issue has created a global crisis situation and there has been no viable scalable solution for remediation of this serious issue... until now. Imagine a company and community devoted to eliminating our collective waste issue while producing energy, water and reusable by-products as a result of cleaning our world up! Our Vision Our vision is to alleviate the world's garbage, landfill and ocean waste issues. We will achieve this by creating the most effective, affordable, and efficient waste-to-energy systems in the world. We are not talking about relocating the trash, we are talking about transforming and repurposing nearly all of it into useful renewable by-products.We are the first in the world to make biomass and pyrolysis systems that are mobile; this allows for quick and easy deployment in places such as disaster areas, hazardous sites, remote communities with waste issues, on ships to clean ocean trash islands and in agricultural zones dealing with animal waste issues. Our systems are designed for scalability and modular development; they are built to be easily transportable, and usable nearly anywhere in the world. Our systems are customizable based on the needs of each specific community, client and situation. Our vision is centered around social benefit impact; whenever able, we will provide use of our mobile systems as a service for areas in distress. At United Earth Energy (UEE), we believe in guaranteeing a cleaner, healthier world by producing green renewable by-products, for energy independence, from the waste humankind collectively generates every day. We will track and showcase the metrics of how many hundreds of millions of pounds of waste materials our systems prevent from going into, or reclaim from, landfills. We will also track the data for how many millions of gallons of clean fuels are produced as a by-product of reclaiming this waste and how many communities and bioregions we clean-up. This is the basis for our "sustainability as a business." We believe in this ethos so much, that beyond our own philanthropic projects, we commit a minimum of 5% of all our organizational proceeds to our foundational partners focused on wildlife preservation, ocean restoration initiatives and food sustainability. How does it work? Our installation facilities consist of two major components: Resource Recovery Centers and Biomass Waste-to-Renewable Material Production Centers. All Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), along with tires, organic waste etc, will first go to Resource Recovery Centers where metals, glass, concrete and certain plastics will be sorted out and recycled. The remainder of the MSW will be shredded and sent to our Waste-to-Renewable Material Production Center. Utilizing a proprietary 3-stage gasification technology, that is unique to U.E.E and BioDiverse Energy LLC, waste will be converted to a variety of useful carbon-based energy products. All of the recyclables will be turned into new green Renewable products such as Bio-diesel, Acetylene, Activated Carbon, Synthetic Coal, Fertilizer, and more. All your waste can now be reused and recycled, and your landfills significantly reduced with the long-term goal of becoming reclaimed and remediated as useful/usable property. United Earth Energy will take fuel produced from these plants to run electrical generators and produce renewable clean by-products to be sold back to each community at a rate below market value. The sale of the renewable byproducts allows United Earthy Energy and BioDiverse Energy to provide these Biomass Waste Recovery Centers at low cost for each of the communities, cities and countries we serve. Benefits of Biomass Biomass is all non-fossil organic materials that have intrinsic carbon content. They include all water and land-based vegetation and trees, virgin biomass, and all waste biomass such as municipal solid waste (MSW), municipal bio-solids (sewage) and animal wastes (manures), forestry and agricultural residues, and certain types of industrial wastes. Unlike fossil fuels, biomass is renewable and sustainable. Renewable in the sense that only a short period of time is needed to replace that which is used as an energy resource. Sustainable through naturally occurring growth cycles, or through a well-managed and coordinated regional bio-waste, agricultural waste and industrial waste strategy. Coupled with a comprehensive strategy, biomass resource solutions address many of our nation's environmental concerns while offering capability to address many of the same concerns facing communities worldwide. We understand that a comprehensive national policy must meet the public's current and future needs for energy, environmental quality, national security, and a healthy economy, policy makers are beginning to recognize the costs and benefits associated with these public needs. Our nation's governors' recently submitted their support for a national energy policy based on ten principles. Principles that must incorporate a strategy for using renewable and sustainable biomass resources. What is our target market? Our clients are governments and enterprises in the private sector that are focused on social impact, clean energy systems, and/or waste remediation solutions. We will shipping, and eventually building, our systems around the world. Our current primary areas of focus, based on existing client requests, are the: United States, Ireland, England, Singapore and the Caribbean. We understand the range of waste challenges our clients face and have built a model which is adaptable to meet each client's unique goals, while exceeding all EPA regulatory goals and standards. Environmental Impact Goals... We have a list of audacious goals that fuels our passion for bringing UEE to the world in a big way. Our commitment is to clean up the collective waste we have generated as a species over the past century. As our business grows, and we continue to build systems for clients around the world, we will be setting aside substantial funds to eliminate certain vital issues affecting us all. Our first major goal is to partner our fund with the UN, along with aligned government agencies and private enterprises, to bring a quick and thorough solution to one of the most pressing waste issues humankind faces... cleaning up the world's oceans! Yes, we intend to END TRASH ISLANDS in our oceans. Our first objective is to remove the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (largest of the trash islands). Depending upon partnership support, we know that our technology can clean the oceans over the next 3-5 years. Our goal is to have all of the islands of trash completely cleaned up well within the next decade. We are not talking about relocating the trash, we are talking about transforming and repurposing nearly all of it into useful renewable by-products. We have already raised $500k from friends and family and completed approximately 90% of our demo system and facility in Texas.. We require an additional $400k to complete our system while covering some vital engineering costs and basic operating expenses. So, we are now opening up to the larger community to invite assistance and collaboration in bringing this proven dream to life, after over a decade of testing and improving this technology, for the benefit of both our individual wellbeing and shared planetary experience. With your generous donations and contributions, we will be able to finalize our demo site. In doing so, we will be able to provide the means necessary for state and federal agencies, such as the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality and the EPA, to verify our zero pollution claim of capability; this will also allow our clients the ability to come view a working system. We will complete development of our first self-managed system within 30 days of raising these funds. At our demo site, we will be transforming a 5,000,000 tire mono-fill into a waste-free and wholly remediated land. We chose tires for demonstration site because these are one of the most difficult types of waste to transform. After tires, we will be modeling our ability to transform, without pollution, plastics into energy and clean byproducts. When given the opportunity to make a difference, our company will be able to provide the products and services that will eventually eliminate landfills globally, reduce carbon emissions and support the alleviation of our global waste problem. Support a Cleaner & Healthier World for Us All! How much is clean air, water and land worth? How much do we all wish to explore our rich natural world with our loved ones before it is one giant landfill? We invite you to reach into you hearts and feel into what a trash-free life is worth and what you are able to offer to support this vision for a cleaner world.... today. We welcome all donations as every single dollar empowers our capacity to better serve you and communities around the world. Imagine... just 20,000 people contributing $20 to this mission will raise all the required funds to finish our demo system. The same is true of 4000 people contributing $100 each. Truly unable to make a donation? You can provide invaluable support by sharing our story, and this campaign link, with your family, friends and communities. Let's join together to share this vision for a clean world, with as many people as possible, and co-create a reality where the idea of trash doesn't exist anymore.Donate Now
