Changing the world is tough business, but it can be fun too.
We began in early 2012, at the height of the Occupy Wall Street, Arab Spring, and KONY 2012 movements. Just two sophomore college students witnessing first hand the short comings of these great movements. And then we thought, “This could all be done so much better.”
So, we got to work building a platform that would revolutionize the way doing good would be done. We wanted to give the power to the people. We wanted to build a tool so great, so amazing that they could achieve anything. Cure Cancer. End Hunger. Alleviate Poverty. Bring Equal Rights for all. That was our fuel.
Unfortunately, at first, we didn’t know what we were doing. It took us awhile to get to where we are now. We’re here now though, and we’ve officially turned philanthropy into a science so that it can do more than anyone ever thought possible.
MEET THE TEAM
Our team is small, but we are mighty. We’ve been on the cutting edge of the industry for a while now.
That isn’t easy with such a quickly changing field though. Which is why we have the best, and why we’re always pushing the envelope to innovate.
Kenny Warner – Co-Founder and CEO
When Kenny and Tristan met, Kenny was studying Economics and Engineering at Claremont McKenna College. Before that, he was a graphic designer and a photographer. However, after his passion for selfies, and manipulating pretty images, and his propensity to say YOLO (total sarcasm) waned, he knew he wanted to make a difference in the world. Who better to call than his best friend, Tristan Lovell.
Tristan Lovell – Co-Founder and Chief of Product
Tristan was studying Management and Bio-Medical Engineering at Claremont McKenna College, when he bumped into Kenny at 8am Physics class the first day of college. It’s really as if the gods of fate pushed these two together, since if you were to ask Tristan’s other fellow classmates if they know who he is, you will most certainly get a confused look and a question mark. That’s what happens when you’re working on a product that will change the world for the better. You’ve barely got time to socialize!
Although we promise a lot, we can’t promise you the world will no longer have its share of terrible. That’s why we need you to join us in this mission to change the world for the better. As much as we wish we could do it on our own, we know we can’t.
When you join us though, you become family. That means whenever you need us we are here for you. We are always a phone call away, it doesn’t matter if you want to talk business, have an idea, want to give feedback, or just need someone to talk to, we are here for you. That is our commitment to you.
The world will be changed for the better, and we’ll do it together. It all begins with taking the first step with us.
