Welcome to Wogerz… the World Of GivERZ. A disruptive idea, the evolution in how we confront, assist and manage issues that face us, our societies & the environment...
Fig 1. Our Vision statement is best summed up using Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and the evolution of societies.
If YOU are one of the:
- 600million individuals globally that give; volunteer, fundraise, donate, advocate, network etc
- 16million charities, non-profits, INGOs, NGOs etc ,
- Millions of companies that are giving back to their communities welfare through CSR & 3BL,
… then Wogerz is for YOU. Be the changemaker & help us crowdfund it to life...
Fig 2. Why? How? What?
-What if ONE site could house the entire humanitarian & advocacy infrastucture under one roof?
-What if ONE site could merge the info, social, networking & giving tools that currently exist on thousands of websites and fuse them onto one platform?
-What if from ONE place we could help anyone anywhere with our personal contacts, time, skill-sets, ideas or money?
Fig 3. By dissecting how Wogerz.com planst to operate, YOU can see the difference between what's out there ... and what's coming!
1st layer: The IDENTITY (Individuals & organizations); at the core lies the index of profiles for the 600million individuals, 16million non profits & millions of corporations worldwide. Profiles are filled in by the ‘Identity’ (owner). A dashboard style page offers a general overview of each individual and organization; what they do, how they do it and how you can help.
By making each ACCESSIBLE to the other, NETWORKING can take place more fluidly rather than the current system of searching for information on individuals and organizations on hundreds of different sites. 10 components used.
2nd layer: The CONVERSATION; Building a rapport requires trust. Action requires belief and loyalty. Trust is created when information is transparent, credible and can be accounted for. Unlike other sites, information is added by both; the identity owner AND 3rd parties... Identities who may know, have used or have a connection/relationship with the other identity. Regulating bodies will have critical input on the organizations. Items such as the official rank, data and crowd-sourced inputs (star rating, vouches, comments, likes, dislikes, endorsements, brief financials etc) are the key features here. 20 ranking, relationship building & connector components used.
3rd layer: ACTION & IMPACT; The giving ecosystem; the tools used to give, fundraise, start a cause, donate, do good, collaborate & coordinate. The users that choose to work together or support each other will have all the options to help one click away. 30 components used.
4th layer: The TRANSACTION; Payment and transaction systems enables using integrated easy online payment systems. Whether it’s a cash, time or skill that is being offered
5th layer: REWARD; All users partake in a loyalty program that gives them higher ranks (more trust and clout), discounts from participating corporations and ‘groupon’ style offerings. 20 components)
6th layer: MANAGEMENT BACKEND; Everything from SEO, statistics on site visitors, to organizing volunteers (from ushers to doctors), including a free accounting and management software for non-profits.
