The Power of Purpose
When we started this journey, we weren’t sure exactly what to expect. We believed that people would come along with us on this quest to find purpose through generosity (Purposity), but we didn’t quite conceptualize how quickly our idea would spread.
You Spoke. We Listened.
You may have noticed a few (actually, quite a few) new options when visiting your Purposity page lately. A few months ago we launched personal profiles. Since then, we’ve been working hard to make sure users got exactly what they asked for. Here’s the list of our newest features, designed with you in mind.
We Were On The Today Show
Purposity’s founder, Blake Canterbury, tells The TODAY Show’s Sheinelle Jones how our app is connecting communities so neighbors can see needs and fill them.
You Signed Up. Now What?
Hey, there. We’re excited you’re part of our tribe. You’re now part of a select group looking to find purpose through generosity.
Part Three: Four Ways Technology Strengthens Human Connection
Empathy is the root of human connectivity. It helps us overcome distrust and build a sense of understanding and connection with others. It creates a bond with those from whom we differ which is critical in a deeply-polarized world. In the real world, we tend to stick to what we know, among those that are most like us. But, online, we’re exposed to other points-of-views, ways of life and beliefs. This is a powerful tool…especially when it comes from friends and those we admire.
Why Generosity Feels So Good
There’s actually something called the paradox of generosity. Simply stated, it refers to the idea that by not caring for someone else, we end up not caring for ourselves. In fact, there’s a book about it aptly named The Generosity Paradox: Giving We Receive, Grasping We Lose (2014).
