During the interview, Canterbury highlights the marriage of purpose and generosity and the power it creates as much for the giver as the recipient, the app, and how the platform works. Canterbury also discusses success stories and some of the lessons learned.
What is Purposity? Purposity is a platform dedicated to inspiring our online community to live generously and find purpose.
Purposity comes from the core belief that humanity finds purpose through generosity. Purposity. School systems and non-profits in local communities let us know needs in our area. We spread the word to individuals near them who are willing to help. They click a link, see the need, and make a difference for someone near them. It may be the family next door who lost their home in a fire or the child down the street you didn’t know needed school supplies. It’s easy. It’s simple, and it takes just a few clicks to make a difference in someone’s life. It’s the fastest way to impact your community, one need at a time.
Everywhere around us we see people in need. We also see people who want to help others but don’t know how. We connect those dots through the power of technology.
