CampaignThe purpose of our campaign is to raise funds for the global marketing of the idea of LAHA, the goals of which are to spread philanthropic democracy and the concept of donor-conscious purchasing in the world. We have already built the system, it works. We would like the idea to spread so people would chose LAHA as the tool to make the connection between charity fundraising and corporate social responsibility. As a result of this, nonprofits will not have to constantly beg for money or lobby for government grants
The Love All Help All (LAHA) Foundation is a new and exciting platform for what we call the socially responsible citizen.
Quintessentially a product of the digital revolution, LAHA allows us to put aside the old political ideas of Right and Left, as well as the notion that only the state, big corporations or high net worth individuals have a significant role to play in designing the social architecture of our world, while the citizens are left to just pay their taxes and put pennies in a collection box.
LAHA inaugurates a power-shift in favour of the citizen who, as part of a global community, can effect enormous change simply through his or her online purchases.
In a nutshell, it works like this. You buy something online, either through vendors listed on our website or via the LAHA link on a company's own website. A percentage of whatever you purchase is paid by the company to any not-for-profit of your choice.
This could be anything from your local school or swimming club to one of the major charities such as Oxfam or Christian Aid. No-one but you makes that choice. And you don't pay a penny.
All that is required from you is to take the minimal time and effort to make a difference.
And imagine what a difference you could make. According to a study quoted by Britain's Centre for Retail Research, online sales in the UK are forecast to reach £52 billion ($77 billion) in 2015. In the United States, the figure is expected to be $350 billion.
Yearly growth rates for the coming years are forecast at 15-20%. Across the world billions are being spent online every single day.By donating even a small fraction of that to a cause you believe in and want to support, you and the wider LAHA community will truly make a difference.
Whatever your age, if you buy things online you can get involved right now. But we are particularly keen to implant the donor-conscious mentality into the next generation. Set an example to your children. Show them that they no longer need to be passive observers on the sidelines. The future belongs to those who have the imagination to understand that we, the donor conscious citizens, are empowered as never before.
You'll be amazed how easy it is.
Two quick questions before you get started:
What is in it for us at LAHA?
Believe it or not, we just want to do a good thing. Unlike some other platforms offering a similar method of donation via online purchasing, we do not take a cut either from you or the vendor. Our primary aim is to build a community.
To be clear, 100% of what you donate goes to the good cause that you have chosen to support. That's it!
Why should the companies participate?
Companies are also run by people. They too feel good about effecting change. If you're of a more cynical disposition, you might simply conclude that they'll do it because it is fantastically good for their image. In the end, who cares why they want to get involved, just so long as they do.
And all the available research shows that companies are queuing up to become what we call Angel Hands.
When you see a participating company (an Angel Hand) on our website or our click-on LAHA logo on theirs, you'll know that you're seeing a business that will help you make donating to good causes a cost-free part of your daily life.
