CROWDSOURCING A MORE CARING, SUSTAINABLE, HEALTHY & RESILIENT CORK
As we re-build from Covid-19, WeCanCork brings Cork businesses, citizens, nonprofits, institutions and experts together, to:
⦁ support & raise funds for nonprofits, while supporting sector change & advocating systemic solutions
⦁ promote community and workplace health & wellness
⦁ support local & community improvement initiatives
⦁ promote corporate and local sustainability and regeneration, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals
⦁ build an ever-better Cork through these times of immense change.
FOCUSED, ACTION-ORIENTED & POSITIVE
SOCIAL DONE DIFFERENTLY
WeCanCork is a social platform, but unlike dominant social platforms we are purpose-driven, results-oriented, civil & constructive.
Participants interact in a culture of helpfulness, professionalism, positivity. It's a non-party-political collaborative space focused on getting things done.
We're knowledge-based and fact-driven, and we're here to work in connected teams to make good things happen.
- OUR STARTING POINT FOR IMPACT
Nonprofit incomes are decimated by Covid-19 - just as needs are highest. Our starting point in WeCanCork is to organise fundraising initiatives for non-profits.
We will crowdsource ideas for these, not least with the help of the non-profit sector.
We will also organise a global fundraising initiative, GreenToGive – Empowering Global Irish Generosity through Connection, Purpose & Fun.
GREENTOGIVE - EMPOWERING GLOBAL IRISH GENEROSITY
IN CONNECTION, PURPOSE & FUN
Nonprofits everywhere need help right now. GreenToGive connects the Irish globally in a spirt of fun, to help raise funds for nonprofits everywhere.
Our emphasis is on (Covid-aware) Events, Activities & Teambased Funding. It starts in March and runs 6 months, to 17 September – “Generosity Day”.
Our goal globally is to create 5,000 fundraising teams, events or individual activities, connected to Irishness, by September 2021.
PARTICIPATE, SHAPE & SHARE
WeCanCork is organised into multiple “focus circles”, within wider headings of: Nonprofits; Health; Sustainability; Corporate Sustainability; and Local Action.
People join focus circles based on the difference they wish to make. Circles self-organise and manage their areas of focus, as well as coordinating with & supporting each other.
Everyone is encouraged to take an active part in shaping & promoting all of these discussions & initiatives, through the WeCanCork Community.
CONNECTING PEOPLE, BUSINESSES & COMMUNITIES
Kune is a new Cork-based social platform focused on connecting and empowering people, businesses and communities to transform lives, society and the planet.
We’re building networks of learning-and-action communities.
1) cities, countries & places
2) industries & topics, and
3) the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are also building the GreenToGive community,
empowering Global Irish generosity through connection, purpose & fun.
WeCanCork is funded by our Corporate Sponsors to empower their teams & communities to transform lives, society & the planet.
