In the very recent past, most charitable transactions looked something like someone physically going to a place where they may potentially receive assistance from an organization or from someone else. Or maybe sending your money to a large organization and hoping for the best outcome, knowing that only a very small portion actually benefits the end recipient.
Today’s charitable transactions, while still similar in many aspects to the past; often require little or no physical movement, often provide guaranteed assistance and even often involves anonymous giving. (Think crowdsource funding or GoFundMe).
ABC’s “Secret Millionaire”, the goal of the show’s participants was to locate needy people or organizations within a chosen community and to secretly observe their true needs for possible future charitable giving. (With donors typically staying in squalor while researching their potential targets!)
So the challenge was to travel to find the needy, stay and live like them to really understand the environment in which they existed and then possibly provide financial support for them. To which I said, “is all this really necessary?”
While highly entertaining as well as incredibly generous, this charitable model is not only non-sustainable, but very inefficient and meets the needs of only the few lucky ones.
These millionaires have the highest aspirations for doing well and good, for sharing their vast and proud resources, but are limited by the restrictions and limitations of today’s charitable environment and infrastructure.
Unlike Warren or Bill, generally speaking, most people don’t have giant sums of money to donate to causes which they may feel very strongly about. However, most people have some money, but more likely than not they have time, which those two guys may not. So, if these two guys gave all of their money to all of the needy, besides being broke, their contributions would actually be very small individually. (Same rule applies utilizing all magnates). (As of December 2015, the world population was estimated at 7.3 billion. The United Nations estimates it will increase to 11.2 billion in the year 2100.)
On the other hand, if these billionaires used a small portion of their vast resources to provide an infrastructure which effectively and efficiently enables charitable giving, by those who have the time and resources, this would dramatically alter the charitable landscape and be evolutionary.
Utilizing today’s technology, we will link together those who have the resources to help those who have the need.
By utilizing today’s technology, (Global Mapping), and the existing structure of mapping technologies generally, charitable transactions are facilitated like never before. The basic premise is to utilize global mapping technology and “Pins” to create donor, sponsor, and recipient access points to facilitate charitable transactions.
The function of these Pins would be similar to their current functions on global mapping, in that when clicked on, they display some form of information that is read and /or viewed.
So, in the P2PAN Network, the Pins would contain sponsor/recipient information as well as contact links or other instructions that provides the interested party with access to the information to assist their needs. Potential donors would be directed to the necessary links and or contact information to communicate with sponsors/recipients.
So by simply clicking on the Pin, you can change the paradigm of how society interacts with and facilitates charitable transactions forever.
Pin Color Code - (Red=Life Threatening Emergency, Yellow=Non Life Threatening Emergency, Green=All Other Request)
The fact is that most people, if made aware and given the opportunity, will do almost anything and give vast resources to assist others.
