Did you eat, drink, shower and sleep in a bed last night? Millions of Syrian parents/kids did not. Will you help them?

6 Oct

Please help Kickstarter raise money to support the Syrian War Refugees who didn’t do anything to deserve to lose their beds, homes, schools or their life

By Robert Hoskins

Click here to make a tax deductible Kickstarter donation to Syrian Refugee Camps – Millions of refugees didn’t eat at all last night, don’t have any fresh water to drink, haven’t showered in weeks, and slept with their families on the hard ground or sidewalk with no covers/no pillows and are waiting for somebody, somewhere to help them escape their desperate situation.

Regardless of who they are or where they come from, no human being deserves to live like this. Are you willing to help them?

If 1 out of every 500 people in the top 20 countries worldwide donated $100, it would generate more than $1 billion dollars worth of aid to people who literally have no hope that tomorrow might have even the smallest glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.

In the last 24 hours, if you have enjoyed a warm meal, drank a cup of fresh water from your kitchen sink, took a hot shower, or slept a comfortable bed last night, please take a minute to think what it would be like for someone to take all this away from you overnight and force you to flee your home and country with nothing more than you could carry on your back.

You may not want to donate any money to the UN Refugee Agency Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign, but there is no excuse for not doing your part to help raise the awareness for these unfortunate people with very little hope for a better tomorrow and at least try to make a difference.

What if it was was your sons, daughters or grandchildren or YOU in these pictures? Would you think it was kind if someone walked up and handed you $20 bucks and said, please enjoy a hot meal on me, its the least that I can do to make a difference.

They might not be able to pay you back, but I bet their smile would be a worth a million bucks and a gold star in heaven.

“We are excited to extend the ClickStartMe brand with Crowd It Forward,” founder and crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico said. “With our Random Acts of Crowdfunding, we can find people who need or deserve something good to happen to them, and we can make it happen through crowd funding.”

Crowd It Forward launched with two crowdfunding projects. The first involves raising funds for U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Myles Kerr, whose recent viral story touched the hearts of millions as he helped a nine year-old boy find his lost companions while running a 5K race. Crowd It Forward is raising funds for LCpl Kerr to send him and a companion to another 5K race of his choice, and to purchase the Marine a new pair of running shoes. Tax deductible donations for this project may be made here at Crowd It Forward.

The second Random Act of Crowdfunding involves Chelesa Fearce, an inspiring young woman who graduated as her high school’s valedictorian despite being homeless. Crowd It Forward is raising funds to help Chelesa with her ongoing educational expenses. Tax-deductible donations for this crowdfunding project may be made here at Crowd It Forward.

“Launching Crowd It Forward by helping LCpl Kerr and Chelesa Fearce truly illustrates what we are all about,” founder and crowd funding expert Kendall Almerico said. “We want to spread the word about positive news stories, and also to reward those who deserve to be rewarded, but would never ask for it themselves.”

Tyger Gilbert Launches “Reinventing Civilization” Crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo in Phoenix, Arizona

6 Jul

Overcoming the “Insanity of Humanity” by Choosing Ways to Survive Together as Individuals Without The Use of Force

Reinventing Civilization by Overcoming the Insanity of Humanity

Reinventing Civilization by Overcoming the Insanity of Humanity

Howdy,

My name is Tyger Gilbert.

I’m a writer, artist, photographer, web designer and programmer, and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I’ve been here since right after dirt was invented out in the Sonoran Desert and I’ve seen a lot of things happen over the years. I’ve been blessed and cursed with an IQ that is in the top 1% of the population, and it has made me see things very differently from most people a lot of the time.

Because of this, I’ve felt like an outsider looking in for much of my life, but by a great deal of introspection, I have come to realize that a lot of people feel this way about many aspects of their lives, too. My ongoing fascination with philosophies of the world throughout history has also produced unexpected but valuable conclusions on common perceptions and how things really are.

You and I probably agree on a lot of thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs about how the world is being run these days. I get really angry when I watch the nightly news or read about all the wars, the hunger, sickness, and protests all over the globe. I feel so helpless that I can’t do anything to stop all the pain and suffering I see. I am very disappointed that none of the prominent religions seem to provide answers to these problems, and in fact are often the cause of them. I get frustrated by all the promises made by politicians everywhere who say they will find and implement solutions, but never do. I suspect you often feel the same as I do about these conditions.

The world is still rampant with wars, hunger, violence, and sickness even in this modern age.

If you do feel upset by these things, I hope you will help me with this book I’m writing that I believe provides workable answers and reveals ways you or anyone else can put them into action to benefit a lot of people. People you love and want to see happy. And you will be able to use these revolutionary new concepts that I describe to achieve your own personal freedom as well.

This book is the culmination of many years of philosophical analysis and soul searching for me. I disagreed with much of what I was taught by my parents and teachers in school because it just didn’t make sense to me. I struggled with that most of my life until just a couple years ago when I realized that most everything I had been taught was wrong! And it was not that my parents and teachers and everyone else meant to deceive me, it was that what they were taught and believed is not how things really are, not then, and surely not today.

Civilization favors the wealthy with power, privileges, and opportunities

I now recognize that civilization is structured in ways that are inherently corrupt and immoral. It openly favors only select groups with power and privileges while sentencing the bulk of humanity to virtual slavery, requiring them to suffer a basic, minimal existence in order to support and serve the interests of the wealthy. Creative thought and individuality are suppressed in favor of the opinions and the dictates of the ruling elite. Elections change who makes the rules of the game of Life, but they never significantly alter how the game is played. Those who benefit from this arrangement do not want to see things be any different, but if you are like me, the way many things are being done just isn’t right to you.

How to fix those things is surprisingly simple, however.

Most of the world’s population lives in abject poverty

Religion and politics have failed to provide workable answers to the problems of wars, violence, sickness, starvation, and most other forms of human misery for more than the last 2000 years. I say it’s time to start doing things differently and choose some alternatives to these institutions.

All the governments and different religious belief systems cause more pain and suffering in the world than they cure or prevent. They create lots of impressive buildings, but despite their best efforts, neither has adequately provided what is really needed for anyone but the rich and powerful. With the world’s population at over seven billion and growing exponentially, the problems quickly will get far worse than anyone can imagine.

Governments and religions have built lots of big fancy buildings, but haven’t ended human suffering.

Air pollution, a lack of clean water, trash everywhere, the destruction of natural forests, changes in climate and weather, crop failures, extreme overcrowding, and vastly inadequate food supplies are devastating the human condition today, never mind what horrible things will likely happen in the future. Though science and technology have made some people in advanced countries more comfortable and extended their life expectancies, the incredible, senseless suffering of humanity continues throughout most of the world.  Why?

Overpopulation is destroying the environment everywhere throughout the world today. 

The reasons are rooted in the very nature of the human species. Civilization was founded on the formation of groups and the use of these groups to control and develop resources for the benefit of the group. Leaders of groups wanted to exert control over the thinking and behavior of individuals in the group so they could ensure they got the results they wanted. Loyalty was essential, and dissent was overcome by the use of force. Apparently, leaders today don’t see how these ways aren’t working well in modern times, as they persist in trying to use bigger and bigger groups as their tools for everything.

        
Politicians . . .You see one, you’ve seen them all . . . because they all are essentially the same.
        

The right solutions to these problems will come from placing the needs of the individual above or equivalent to the needs of the group, and from recognizing and valuing individuals as being important to everyone. Control of actions and motivation to perform for the benefit of a group must come from within each person. Good thoughts and behavior can not be externally imposed by group rules which require compliance through threats and intimidation and the use of actual physical force. That just fails miserably in so many ways.

Good thinking and behavior cannot be imposed on others through the use of force

The wonderful idea of personal freedom and independence is a fairly recent development for Mankind as it requires critical thinking to override natural instincts and ages of mental conditioning. That’s not widespread, yet, but easy to accomplish once old habits of compliance are abandoned and hope sets it. New social values can be established the same ways existing values always were – by friendly discussion, comparison of personal values and needs, and common agreement among individuals. Violence and use of force do not have to be part of the equation

This book describes the philosophy of Individualism for true personal freedom and provides practical ways to implement it in a society that is brainwashed to socialism and total control by governments at all levels. It emphasizes the necessity for voluntary cooperation – not compulsory obedience – to satisfy the needs of civilization at large and fulfill the desires of every person in it. The logic and morality of the methods advocated are substantiated with examples from the ways the world currently works and are demonstrated to be realistic. They aren’t just ideas I came up with all by myself. Several well-known and respected philosophers and writers like Henry David Thoreau, Ayn Rand, Max Stirner, William Godwin, and Benjamin Tucker have all embraced Individualist beliefs and have been a great inspiration to me.


Henry David Thoreau

Ayn Rand

Benjamin Tucker

Slavery was once condoned by various governments but it is now illegal and unacceptable everywhere. This major change in social values didn’t happen overnight, but gradually people realized the horrible immorality of it and now consider it an extremely reprehensible practice.

New concepts like “voluntary taxation” or “free participation” are rejected by many people as being unworkable because equal contributions and the allocation of benefits cannot be enforced, and the redistribution of wealth cannot be directed and controlled by the politicians. Yet, these methods are in use in many places in many ways today and are actually quite feasible for making good things happen. Their perceived weaknesses are actually their strengths that make them fair and usable for everyone, not just the powerful.

Slavery was accepted for most of human history, but attitudes about it have changed drastically.

Crowd funding is an example of how projects can be financed voluntarily and without the use of force. Instead of some politicians or bureaucrats, the people who are providing the money are the ones who decide which projects are funded and get done and which do not. Can you imagine if citizens could directly decide what their government taxes would support? A lot of wars might never be started, never mind go on for years and years.

Revolutionary ideas like these can be implemented right now by injecting them into the functionality of governments and large corporations the world over and eventually will prove to be more equitable and humane ways of handling the interpersonal relationships of people than direct force and coercion. No matter what your political or religious beliefs are now, these universal concepts will work for you.

People everywhere are happier when they can choose what they want for themselves. 

It’s time to move from an authoritarian-based society, one that imposes rules and causes damage and suffering when it enforces laws with strict penalties for non-conformance, to a society that is peer-based and works well because it is built on values and sound principles. This will motivate people to participate and perform in ways that are good for everyone. People are happier and a lot more productive when they do things because they want to, not because they have to do them. The freedom to choose is what enables this, and making the game a win-win-win situation is how multiple beneficial choices are created for every player in the game and success becomes the only alternative.

    
The ability to communicate, spread ideas, and change attitudes has never been greater than now
    

I don’t expect to “save the world” with this book, but I can help point the way toward a better way of living for a lot of people by influencing how they choose to value themselves, other people, and Nature itself – by simply “changing one attitude at a time.” Great ideas, when successfully put into action, will spread faster today than at any other time in history, and they can quickly become the accepted way of thinking. I’ve been working on these concepts for a long time, and the details are finally coming together. With the popularity of social media and networking at a high point, the precarious state of the global economies, and general dissatisfaction with all forms of governments now, I believe it is the right time for this book to have a meaningful and significant positive impact.

It will take more than hoping and praying to bring about significant changes for Humanity

Wishing things were different won’t change anything. The human race is in a desperate situation. It will take some effort by everyone who recognizes action is needed before it is too late to have any meaningful effect. Don’t just keep making the same mistakes over and over, letting someone else decide and control your life, all so you can barely get by while they become more wealthy. Join me NOW and help make this book become a source of inspiration and guidance to stop the march of all of civilization toward the extinction of mankind.


The time is right for this – it needs to happen NOW!

Please contribute what funds you can today, and then give me your opinions and criticisms as I complete the writing of this very important book. If you like this presentation, which is a good example of how I think and write, and if you agree with even half of what it says, you will love the book. It will be much more comprehensive and include lots of examples of how things can be improved and even drastically altered for the good of everyone by making only small but significant changes to how things are structured and done. I assure you that you will be glad you contributed to it and proud you were a part of its creation.

– Tyger Gilbert

Crowdvance.com Offers Crowdfunders 100% Free Crowdfunding Opportunity to Launch Fundraising Campaigns with Zero Service Fees

23 Jun

Crowdvance is poised to disrupt the entire online fundraising industry by serving as the for-profit fundraising platform that passes 100% of donations received to organizations for processing and that rewards donors for their donations

By Robert Hoskins

Crowdvance.com announced plans to drop the Crowdfunding service fee they deduct from donations to zero percent, down from 6.5%. By removing the company’s service fee, Crowdvance.com becomes the first for-profit online fundraising platform to be 100% free.  Most other crowdfunding and fundraising platforms continue to promote the same model: no cost to sign up, but the various platforms deduct 3-10% from donations as a service fee on top of universal credit card processing fees. Crowdvance now offers one of the the only online fundraising platforms on the planet that does not deduct an additional service fee on top of standard credit card fees.

Crowdvance.com Now the Only Fundraising Platform on the Planet to not Charge a Service Fee and to Reward Donors

Crowdvance.com Now the Only Fundraising Platform on the Planet to not Charge a Service Fee and to Reward Donors

“When we launched Crowdvance, we set out on a mission to help organizations run more engaging, effective, and efficient fundraisers,” said Dylan Fox, Crowdvance’s CEO.  “We got the engaging part down by rewarding donors with gifts from great national companies we partner with, but our fee was getting in the way of our company reaching all of our goals.”

Crowdvance announced this service fee reduction after completing a recent round of seed-stage financing. “After we closed our seed round, we were able to think longer term, and that’s when our team realized we wanted to go big and really change the game,” said Fox.

Crowdvance.com’s 100% free model is not the only unique aspect to its fundraising platform. The company strives to be more than just a passive middle-man like other fundraising websites. It does this by forming partnerships with national companies to arrange exclusive gifts for donors to choose from as a reward for their donation. Current partners include companies like Hulu and Fathead.

“We saw that donors were getting burned out with traditional and online fundraising campaigns,” said Zachary Herman, CMO of Crowdvance. “With traditional fundraisers, small organizations are wearing out donors by trying to sell them the same bland fundraising products every year. How many tubs of popcorn or t-shirts can someone buy? And with more organizations making the switch to online fundraising, donors are experiencing fatigue. We solve that problem by rewarding donors for their good behavior. Donors can save on things like concert tickets or pro-sports tickets, or even on jewelry, as a reward for contributing through Crowdvance to an organization they care about. Plus, now a donor can have their donation go where it is intended to go.”

As the only for-profit fundraising platform that passes on 100% of donations received for processing, Crowdvance is poised to disrupt the entire online fundraising industry.

“We can support a 0% service fee because of our innovative business model,” said Fox. “We’re focusing on the value we deliver to national companies as our main business, and passing the benefits back to the organizations that use our platform to raise funds, making it entirely free.”

Crowdvance has always had a values focus. It won first place in the international Values and Ventures Business Plan Competition in April, 2013 and now the company feels even stronger about its ability to focus on its values mission.

“Over the next few months, we’re going to open the Crowdvance platform to the masses, and are going to become the standard for fundraising. Our model just makes sense,” says Fox.

FaithLauncher Announces Crowdfunding Site for Christian Authors, Faith Inspired Film Makers and Ministries

6 Mar

By Robert Hoskins

FaithLauncher and UnKonventional Media have officially teamed up to create a new Crowdfunding site to empower Christians everywhere to take action, build God’s Kingdom, and positively influence the culture around them. By equipping big thinkers with all the tools they need including a platform, coaching, and added visibility, entrepreneurs can make their dreams a reality.

Christian authors, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, musicians, artists, entertainers, ministries, and other faith-based projects can all use FaithLauncher to build a project, engage supporters, and see their funding goal reached.

“FaithLauncher is a great organization!”said Allysen Kerr, UnKonventional Media’s Founder. “It’s amazing when the Lord orders your steps and brings an exceptional opportunity to have a long lasting affect on our communities.” FaithLauncher’s mission is to assist anyone with a faith inspired idea to launch a crowdfunding campaign and raise money quickly and securely. Unlike other crowdfunding sites, FaithLauncher empowers project owners to engage supporters, build a community, and offers them valuable coaching and tools throughout the process.

“FaithLauncher and UnKonventional Media are not only compatible, our values match perfectly when it comes to helping people achieve great things because they want to glorify God,” FaithLauncher Founder and CEO, Fernando Chavez noted. UnKonventional Media plans to provide preferred pricing for creative services to FaithLauncher’s partners. “We also would like to offer special incentives to those individuals who subscribe to Adapt Magazine through FaithLauncher,” Kerr added.

Overturning barriers to start a faith-based enterprise is a journey Kerr strongly relates to. She launched Adapt Magazine in college and continues to grow it in tandem with her graphic design business. As a young student, she pushed through fears doubts and insecurities, but cheerfully affirms that God was very gracious with her and showed her it was going to take off no matter what. “I feel like I had no choice! UnKonventional Media started last year, [2012].”

Kerr’s desire to help college students succeed both in their faith and their careers stems from a deep personal compassion and calling. As a flourishing Christian businesswoman, she understands the importance of providing effective content and building strong community resources to get them there.
