When my wife, PTA President at our kids’ school, was brainstorming ways to generate funds, I suggested a March Madness contest. Half of the funds would support the school, the other half as the prize pool. While I had successfully organized such contests before, the school declined my proposal due to regulations and policies.
However, this setback inspired a thought: What if I managed this outside the school system and later donated the earnings? They wouldn't refuse such a direct contribution.
And so, Playfora was born. A platform that allowed groups to incorporate charity into events they already love - like fantasy sports leagues and neighborhood barbecues.
when developing, we learned that collecting money online and giving a portion to charity was filled with complex financial regulations. in the process, we created a new way to collect and move money with blockchain technology - the first of its kind.
As different groups took part in leveraging the platform for their fundraising ($40k to date), I realized that it didn’t have to be limited to micro-communities. Individuals could sell items while supporting the charity of their choice, and buyers could take part in a new way to shop online. This way, everyone wins.
Whether you are a seller, buyer, or non-profit, I hope Playfora allows you to feel good about doing good.
