Affiliate Network

We are developing a network of Affiliates in major cites around the country to participate in this unique Pay-it-Forward Initiative to benefit the homeless.

Revenue & Sustainability 

In order to assure sustainability, a monetization strategy has been developed to generate residual revenue from multiple sources.

Goals & Objectives

Our overall objective is to create an online environment were everyone participates in, and benefits from the Universal Law of Reciprocity - What Goes Around, Comes Around!

Our objective is four-fold:

  • Provide an easy way for users to help the homeless through non-cash transactions

  • Leverage the power of social media and relationships to spread the word

  • Develop a sustainability model that includes multiple revenue sources

  • Develop a web-based reporting system where results can be tracked and measured in real-time

Our goals are three-fold:

  • Secure 250,000 active subscribers the first year

  • Create a network of affiliate chapters in all 50 states by the second year

  • Generate over $10 million in Points-to-Cash/Pay-it-Forward revenue by the third year

Considering the viral nature of the program, and marketing strategy, this initiative has the potential to grow exponentially, driving repeat visitors, and generate millions to support this cause.
