We are setting out on a 30 day cross country tour from NC to CA and back to share our story and the stories of people we meet and serve along the way, and the exciting new project we’ve been working on! Within our first year of business, we received over ten thousand messages through our website and social media from people all over the country asking in regards to our “Be Better, Do Better” movement, “How can I get involved?” “What can I do to serve?” and we listened -- you want to make a difference, you want to do something that matters, if only you knew where to start. So our team put our heads, hearts and hands together to find a solution. We believe in starting wherever you are, with whatever you have, it’s why we are creating an app that connects you to needs of local schools, hospitals, churches, families and individuals within your own community and gives you tools to help meet them. We are teaming up with Amazon to give users the opportunity to meet the needs for goods, such as non-perishable lunches for a hungry student, a warm winter coat for someone struggling with homelessness, a cozy blanket for a child undergoing cancer treatment in the hospital, and so many more. Users will also be able to meet the needs for service by signing up to volunteer their time at events like 5Ks to raise funds for wildfire relief, or filling backpacks with school supplies for students in low income communities. With the Bettermen app, soon, anyone who wants to do good can, whether it’s five dollars or five minutes. Our team will be working with local organizations across the United States to serve the communities we visit and hosting pop-up shops at local business and farmers markets to raise funds for the development of the app.
