Triggergive.com Taking a Stand One Donation at a Time

How many times has something bad happened and you’ve jumped on social media to see the latest news only to feel angry and helpless? One of the many amazing things a company called Triggergive can do is turn these types of tragedies into movements of change. Using the social awareness that Twitter creates around events, Triggergive can turn this exposure into actual donations for good.

#TriggerGive

One of the major roadblocks to raising money is the back end systems of the donation processing, it’s very complicated. Triggergive takes care of all the processing logistics, security (Stripe CC processing), and back end work for you. Triggergive is a mobile based platform that allows users to instantly donate money on Twitter and it only costs $15 per month. $15 a month, I might add, is an amount even a nonprofit can afford ūüėČ

Sign Up Process

The signup process begins on the web site Triggergive.com where you choose if you are a donor or a organization. In order for users to donate all they have to do is Tweet: #TriggerGive $(amount) @(organization). If you have already signed up on their website, the transaction is complete. If you are not already registered, they will tweet you a link to complete your sign up. Trigger Give allows you to make a big difference through small donations. TriggerGive does not take any of the donation amount, they make money by signing up charities at $15/month. Stripe takes 30 cents plus 2.9% to handle the funds.

Trigger Give offers several templates to help your organization inform donors how to give on Twitter. Login to your dashboard anytime to analyze your donors and track donations. Whether you are a donor or a charity the process could not be simpler.

  • Comments Off on Showaround Smart 360¬į Image On Kickstarter

Are you in the market for a new car, but tired of the same boring car ads with static pictures? If the answer is yes there’s a better three dimensional way coming to a web site near you. If this exciting new technology called Showaround is funded on Kickstarter you may see three dimensional images on your favorite web site soon such as eBay or Taobao.

Visit and contribute:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1085488908/smart-360-image?ref=4roxs2

The Kickstarter campaign called Smart 360 Imaging is a simple, cost effective, and mobile solution to creating smart¬†360¬į images for car ads or really anything else that requires a more engaging experience. The Showaround concept was created by¬†Xin Wang. One day he discovered that there is no easy way to create a 360¬į views around an object. Of course there are professional studios that will make a 360 degree image, but the costs are still too high.¬†Showaround¬†enables users to capture a multi-angle views of an object using just a smartphone device and then integrate the view easily, without hassle.

Kickstarter Smart 360

Company Mission

“We are the Showaround team, and our mission is simple: give the market a simple, cost-effective, DIY mobile solution for creating and applying Interactive 360¬į Object Visualization for commercial uses. This representatives a hugely beneficial alternative to paying for equipment and studios.”

Users of the Show Around technology can take as many 360¬į photos as they want storing them on their phone or uploading into cloud360. There is actually a demo app at the Apple Store if you want to check it out.

Visit:¬†“Capture 360” Apple Store

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/capture-360/id1227078535?ls=1&mt=8

This app is still under testing, it’s a work in progress.¬†The Capture 360 mobile app is the ultimate 360¬į and 3D tool.

Any Cool Rewards? 

Yes, there are many cool rewards if you donate on Kickstarter. Pledge just $10 and get on the contributors list, the latest updates, PDF thank you card, and early access to beta versions. The rewards go all the way up to $599 and $2,500. For $599 get 1-year subscription to cloud 360, includes 500¬†360¬į images and everything else in previous reward. Donate $2,500 and you will become a sponsor at their official launch party in Atlanta. In addition you will be treated as a founder in a top Chinese restaurant and discuss their journey.

Conclusion

The genesis of the¬†Showaround came in 2016 and lots of progress has been made since then, but they still need your help. Please consider donating to their Kickstarter campaign and finally get this idea off the ground and into customer’s hands.

Waffle Books Happy Mobile Storybooks On Patreon

I remember the days scouring my grade school library bookshelf for the latest copies of¬†Berenstain Bears. In fact I was such a huge fan a few years later I told a classmate that I like¬†Berenstain Bears and he was shocked I “still read those books.” That sadly was the last time I read¬†Berenstain Bears. I bring up this story because kids today still read books, but the platform they are read on are much different. In my time the platform was paper and ink now in the 21st century it’s mobile. Thankfully there is a author writing just for this 21st century platform called Waffle Books.

Support Waffle Books on Patreon:

Waffle Books

Waffle Books follows the adventures of Patrick, Kevin, Arty, and a few of their friends. When¬†Matthew Ryan started writing children’s books his mission was to give kids access to a library of books they’d be interested in inside their pocket. A library full of books that are designed specifically for small screens.

How’s Matthew Ryan Doing Today?

Today I’m happy to report the response has been fantastic! Not only does Ryan get to follow his passion writing books, his books get¬†4+ ratings on Apple iBooks and many have been editorially featured by Apple, Google Play, and the Google Chrome Store.

Are There Any Bonuses?

Yes, like many many Patreon campaigns I’ve featured on Cash Sherpa there are bonuses. Do you worry! For $1 you get FULL ACCESS to the Waffle Book collection! Yes, you heard right only $1. That’s insanity! For only $5 get early access to books. $10 gets you behind the scenes. $15 or more per month gets you hand drawn characters, once a month in fact. You can’t even buy a mixed drink in New York for less than $15. The value of these bonuses are incredible.

Conclusion

I know it’s an old argument, but growing up with the Internet we got used to free or near free pricing. What I think we failed to realize is that when everything is free or nearly free it becomes generic, almost utility like. I think it’s already started, but society needs to support/value the people and products that resonate with us. It’s time we put our money where our mouth is. Let artists and creators earn money pursuing their passions. Support Matthew Ryan’s Patreon campaign today.

Keeping Teachers Teaching Foundation

  • Comments Off on Keeping Teachers Teaching Foundation

I think it’s safe to say that other than your parents and friends teachers are the most important influence on a young persons life. That’s why it’s so important that we as a society not take good education for granted. Good education is not a guarantee. There’s a Arizona based organization helping to ensure that called¬†Keeping Teachers Teaching Foundation who’s mission is to “Provide for our teachers so they keep providing for our future.”

Visit KTT:

https://www.keepingteachersteaching.org/

Keeping Teachers Teaching, Inc. (KTT) is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization devoted to the needs of teachers. They reality is some school districts are very well funded, but others are not.¬†KTT targets those communities with reduced budgets and supports those teachers in need. For those that think teachers make enough money already and schools get enough of our tax money as it is I say this simply isn’t the case in all areas. I had a college professor here in Washington State once say that said the issue isn’t enough money, at least for my University. It’s about money being spent on the¬†bureaucracy of running the school, a tiny percentage goes to the actual teachers. He went on to say that teachers would be very well off if teachers earned the bulk of money coming into the University. I think my old professor and the goals of¬†KTT are in-line. The goal ultimately is to prioritize teachers, make them first.

Keeping Teachers Teaching

Mission

“KTT provides support and much needed resources for required professional development trainings, networking opportunities, community involvement, scholarships for continuing education, certifications, health and wellness programs, and a variety of free or discounted local services. Our long-term goals are to inspire educators on a state and national level. The assurance of a quality education can only be provided to our children by educators who can give their best to an increasingly demanding profession.”

Keep Teachers Teaching AZ

Special Programs?

KTT offers several fundraising programs. These include the¬†Just 10 AZ Challege where residents of Arizona are encourages to donate $10. 2nd program is called¬†Strive-To-Thrive Total Wellness For Teachers which “incorporates proven, evidence-based activities that are designed to enhance academic learning and student outcomes during a Teacher‚Äôs typical work day. The program components are based on a comprehensive model of wellness to include physical, psychological and environmental well-being.” The third program is called Discounts For Teachers in which teachers receive discounts on a as needed basis.
