How To Change The World With The "Helping Economy" & Wedo: Some Ideas On How To Get Started

How the Helping Economy Can Change the World

Gone are the days of ruthless capitalism, where the only thing that mattered was the almighty dollar. Now, it’s all about lending a helping hand and making the world a better place. We’ve traded in our suits and ties for superhero capes and compassion at Wedo, and you need to consider the implications of a world where we all held hands to make the world a better place together!

We prioritize helping make the world a better place over profits. And we’re keeping it that way.

Welcome to the ‘helping economy’, where profits are as insignificant as a grain of sand on a beach and people are as precious as a newly born kitten. In this economy, businesses and individuals alike prioritize helping others over making a quick buck.

In this economy, companies create products that solve real-world problems, like renewable energy sources or a machine that turns dog droppings into gold (okay, maybe that last one is a stretch). And when it comes to personal interactions, forget about networking for personal gain – it’s all about forming genuine connections and supporting one another.

But don’t worry, this economy isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. There are still challenges to be faced, like how to fairly distribute resources and support within the community. And let’s not forget about those pesky traditional capitalists, always trying to bring us down with their love of profit above all else.

But despite these challenges, we persevere in the name of helping others. So join us, won’t you? Together, we can create a world where people come first and profits are a distant second. In the helping economy, there’s no such thing as a “self-made” individual – we’re all in this together. If your neighbor’s roof is leaking, you don’t just sit back and watch the water pour in – you grab a bucket and help them fix it. And if a friend is struggling with their mental health, you don’t just offer a sympathetic ear – you offer to take them to therapy and help them get the support they need.

But it’s not just about helping others on an individual level – it’s about creating systemic change as well. In the helping economy, businesses and organizations work to address social and environmental issues on a larger scale. They might partner with non-profits or donate a portion of their profits to causes they care about.

For businesses and organizations, operating in the helping economy might involve:

  1. Developing products or services that address social or environmental issues: For example, a company might create a water filtration system that provides clean drinking water to communities in need, or a clothing line made from sustainable materials.
  2. Prioritizing fair labor practices and working conditions: Companies in the helping economy might ensure that their employees are paid a living wage and have access to benefits such as healthcare and paid time off.
  3. Partnering with non-profits or donating a portion of profits to causes: Businesses in the helping economy might choose to support organizations that align with their values, such as charities that work to combat poverty or protect the environment.

For individuals, participating in the helping economy might involve:

  1. Volunteering time or resources to support causes or organizations: This could involve donating money to a non-profit, participating in a beach clean-up, or mentoring a young person.
  2. Providing assistance and support to friends, family, and neighbors: This could involve offering to drive someone to the airport, helping a friend move, or simply lending an ear when someone needs to talk.
  3. Fostering a sense of community and connection: In the helping economy, people might prioritize building relationships and supporting one another, rather than simply focusing on their own needs and goals.

Overall, the helping economy is about creating a world where people come first and profits are a secondary concern. It’s about using our skills and resources to make a positive impact in the world and support one another.
