Grandmothers Crowdfunding For Kindness

SEMINOLE, Fla., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Two grandmothers, on fire to make a difference, recently launched a Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. They are raising funds to create an online platform, called The Kindness Wave, to join individuals and communities together in a collective effort to make a real difference in the world. Our society is rapidly changing and it's time for a kindness movement. The online social community concept has been in development for almost a year and is in response to the massive response on Facebook where over 29,000 people have liked the idea of creating a ripple effect of kindness. One of a kind perks are being offered for founding sponsors who join the movement during the campaign. The campaign runs through December 20th, 2012.  

About Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is a collective effort of individuals who network and pool their resources, usually via the internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowdfunding occurs for any variety of purposes, from disaster relief to citizen journalism to artists seeking support from fans, to political campaigns. It works best for start-ups that have a story to tell – whether a personal reason for starting the business, a passionate vision for what it could become, or a social mission.

About The Kindness Wave

The Kindness Wave is a movement to inspire individuals and communities to create a kinder, more caring place to live. We are creating an online presence which includes building an unique and interactive website, a focal point where "all things kind" can come together and awaken everyday kindness in everyone.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
