We’re creating a Community to connect people, find friends & focus on the positive! Turn the tide against loneliness; be #PartOfThePositive

by Positive Bunch in London, England, United Kingdom

Social isolation and loneliness is on the increase and COVID-19 has not been kind to any of us…

 

The way we connect, find friends and form communities that help build a sense of belonging has changed.

Add to this the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office for National Statistics reported that the chronically lonely and lockdown lonely are struggling to find things to help cope with lockdown.

And let’s not forget about the 1.4m chronically lonely older people (Age UK) in England who were already suffering before this pandemic hit.

Society has changed and we have to tackle this issue as a Community and Positive Bunch (that’s us) are actively taking this issue head-on because NO ONE should have to suffer from loneliness.


So what's our plan? 

1600262478_sign_up_(1).png


Not only are we trying to find new ways to help people connect and find friends in our fast-paced, online world - but we’re also coming up with ideas on how we can all come together as a community to create impactful social-good change!


Our Project will:


  • CREATE a Positive Online Community network where you can connect with like-minded people and find friends with common interests, passions and goals.
  • DESIGN fun and interactive Programs for socially isolated individuals that helps engage them with the online world.
  • SPOTLIGHT the local-heroes, independent projects, causes and initiatives - on our FREE platform - that are producing amazing, social-good change for their community.


We're here to connect the many!

You know that one little fish swimming in the ocean that’s trying to make waves but needs help forging through the water? Well, we’re that little fish. We want to make a positive wave. 

Like us, there are many others out there trying to make waves; trying to create change. So, we figured if others have the same goal as ours then why not join forces with us? Imagine the impact we would make if thousands of like-minded individuals ‘swam’ with us. 

Positive Bunch exists to connect the many, so by joining forces and connecting together - as a Community - we can make a very large and tangible wave that produces a powerful force of change!


Who is this Community for?


1600263196_untitled_design_(4).png

This Community is for ANYONE who - like us - wants a more positive, simple and engaging online environment; a place where you can really connect with other people while making a difference in this world together.

So, our Community would be perfect for you, me, your grandparents, parents, relatives, your next-door neighbour, the neighbours over the road, or that jogger you see at 9 am every Sunday -  the point is: our Community is for everyone and anyone!

Especially if you’re someone who:

  • Enjoys sharing the positive things in life.
  • Is finding it hard to connect and meet people with similar interests.
  • Loves to support everyday-local heroes, projects, causes and initiatives.
  • Wants to help make a difference in this world (no matter how big or small).

Our Community is absolutely perfect for you!


About the Funds


1600264378_untitled_design_(2).png


Your Funds will directly support Social-Good!

 

Over half of the funds raised during this Campaign through the Rewards will directly go to (and benefit) our selected social-good projects!

We are all about giving back and paying things forward, and since we are a not-for-profit organisation a majority of the funding that we receive will be given to local projects, communities and causes that need supporting!


Funds will go to:

1600328042_revised_infographic_(2).png

  • Developing and launching our FREE Community Platform.
  • Nominated Charities and Organisations as detailed in the Rewards.
  • Providing a platform for local-community Causes* to increase awareness and access potential financial support. 


About our Community Platform


Our Community Platform is going to be simple, straight-forward and easy-to-use (because that’s how we like to do things around here)!

But bear with us as we are still in the process of developing our Community Platform, but this should give you an idea on the things you can do on our platform:

1600327416_sign_up_(2).png

To ensure that we can provide a FREE platform for everyone to access - we would need £3,000 to run our platform, totally free for the next 12 months

We believe providing a free Community Platform will be extremely beneficial for those who want a simple & easy-to-use way they can safely make new friends and chat with others!

Not only will your funding help run our Community Platform but your funds will also be supporting social-good causes and all of our other plans for the future!


Funds will also contribute to:

1600332409_pb_cf_infographics.png

  • DEVELOPING Programs and find new ways to help people connect and help turn the tide against social isolation and loneliness.
  • CREATING Services that reach out to people who may be struggling or are in need of a friend due to life-changes such as isolation, mental-health, changed-life circumstances in the sunset years.
  • PROVIDING Employment opportunities for the Community.

Over 30% of the Campaign funds will be allocated to our Social-Good-Causes Fund that will help smaller projects!
