First up, a huge thank you for being part of this incredible community of positive people 💛
Helpfulpeeps now has 150,000 members!
As part of our mission to build the world’s most helpful network, we plan to expand into more cities and grow the community to over 1 million members here in the UK. We have also listened to thousands of requests for mobile apps, and after 9 months in the making, we will soon be launching our free mobile app on both Android and iOS!
In order for us to continue to do our good work, we always knew that the time would come where we would need to start generating some revenue. Did you know we have a team of 6 working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly? The most ‘obvious’ way to to do this would have been to introduce advertising to the site but this has never sat right with us. Most social media websites are designed to keep people online for longer, so they can be shown more adverts. However, we built Helpfulpeeps to do exactly the opposite - we wanted to use technology to enable people to do more in the real world and build stronger communities.
So, staying true to ourselves, we are asking our members to become Patrons of Helpfulpeeps.
You can help us and support our work by making a small monthly contribution, depending on your personal circumstances and how much you want Helpfulpeeps to exist in the world.
There are 3 Patron levels:
Gold = Pass on a Pizza 🍕 and pledge £10 per month
Silver = Skip a glass a vino 🍷 and pledge £5 per month
Bronze = Leave a latte ☕️ and pledge £3 per month
You can cancel your pledge at any time and of course, becoming a Patron is 100% optional - you can still continue to use Helpfulpeeps as you do now whether or not you choose to support us financially. If you want to support the project with more than £10 per month (personally or as a company) then please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss the options with you.
Thank you for helping us to keep Helpfulpeeps thriving and enabling thousands of good deeds to happen every month
