While everyone can use our solution, the solution has been specially designed to meet the needs of the new generation’s social consciousness because the new generation (Gen Y & Z ) want to change the world. This generation is a new breed of open-minded, socially-conscious and world-centric individuals who question the status quo and the way our society works. They realize that some traditional norms simply don’t fit into the hyper-informed, creative and technological age anymore and that things need to change...quickly. We provide an Activist Marketplace that just does that, so they can make sure our world changes 4Good!
