Elle commented on Changing Lives... One Minute at a Time

Hi Shane. I've realized after my time at the camps and host communities that each woman has a specific need. So to group them all into one variable would be doing a disservice not only to them, but also for those that think they are helping them. I would like In One Minute to be the platform that not only tells the story, but does something more. I see contributions being either money, time and mentorship/skill. Depending on each woman's need. For example, one woman may want vocational training. One may donate money towards that, another may donate their time and skill by recording videos for them. These all go into their cloud account. It creates the transparency of knowing that what you are donating goes to the exact reason you were compelled to do something in the first place. Now, this is the area I will need help to figure out the "kinks". We are connecting with women in many countries, gathering their stories and now we want to bridge that gap where people can do something for the person in the story. In Jordan, we are creating a "dream team" and until we gain more funding, we will be teaming up with a local organization for support in regards to man power, facilities and testing out our methods.

Yesterday, we spoke with a company called PeaceByTrade that would like to collaborate with us and although it does give us the option to do the financial donations with ease, we do need the help to figure out the logistics for other forms of donation. I am hoping that with the collective minds here at Ideo we can hone down that aspect.
