It’s really simple. Good Deeds Fund Good Needs. Charities come to the platform and submit an immediate need they have. We verify non-for-profit status and contact organization to validate the need. Once validated, need is posted on the website in the needs queue. Needs in the needs queue are waiting for a sponsor to donate requested amount. After need has found a sponsor, it will appear on the Needs page. Each Need has a specific number of Crystals it must receive in order for the Need to be fulfilled and the organization to receive the resources /services that it has requested..
Users come on and earn those crystals for the need, by receiving likes on the Deeds they post, and as well as interacting on the site. Which includes posting, sharing, liking, or commenting on Deeds. Once the need gets the set amount of crystals, their need is funded by us or a sponsor we connect them with. It’s our goal to fund as many needs as possible through your good deeds.
A Need is a project that a charity is working on and needs help funding. The funding is delivered through products or services that unite4:good provides.
A Deed is an act of kindness or social good, that individuals post and get support for. You get support for your Deed by getting other users on the site to like it. The liking period for each deed you post is 15 days. Once the liking period for your particular deed ends, the likes you received are turned into crystals and put into your bank. 1 like = 1 crystal. Every User has 5 Likes that they can use daily. So you can have your friends come back and like your story every day during 15 days to earn more likes.
We encourage you to link your deed to a specific need. This will ensure that all crystals that you gather in 15 days will go directly towards the need, and that all users see which non-profit need you support with your post.
Crystals are used to fund needs. There are a few ways for you to earn Crystals: posting, liking, sharing, and commenting on Deeds are all ways you can earn Crystals. You can earn up to 45 crystals every day just for helping others! Likes that you receive from your Deed post become Crystals. Which you can use at anytime to donate to the Needs that you find most important. Crystals do not lose value or expire over time, once you have them they are yours. Once a Needs receive enough Crystals for their goal, U4G and other sponsors will fund the project by donating the resources or services that the organization (Need) requested. Earning crystals is easy, fun and rewarding. Every crystal you make creates and spreads the good. You can always view your crystal balance on the main page. Anytime when you have positive point balance you can contribute your crystals towards your favorite need.
You can earn up to 145 crystals per day, view the table below to see how you can receive the maximum number of crystals per day.

One of the main goal for u4g, is to provide resources, services, and support for organizations with immediate needs. With that being said we recommend that you use your Crystals to fund Needs that you support.
You can give specific amounts of your Crystals whenever you want to. Think of them as your personal bank of Crystals, you don't have to donate them all at once or to only one organization. It's is up to you to decide which Needs are most important to you and which one you want to support.
One user can have only one account and give maximum 10% of the amount requested in need.
Needs can be funded by unite4:good or by sposors. To become a sponsor you need to join the sponsor role on your homepage. We are working to connect funding with sponsorships, to get more people involved. We do not simply write a check to these organizations. Needs are fulfilled by U4G purchasing the good or services and delivering them to the organizations. We plan on connecting people with socially responsible brands that represent causes that are important to you.
Once a Need is fulfilled, it automatically turns into a success story. Once the resources and services are provided the non-profit or organization who created the need, will provide us feedback on what they were able to do with their Need being fulfilled, with text, images, and videos. This is an excellent way to see what’s going on and how every user who supports that organization has helped the cause at hand.
Needs must be submitted in a form of a video, text or picture and text. Below are the guidelines:
Deed post must contain at least one of the following:
Because they too want to make a social impact. Because customers are much more likely to support a business that helps local charities.
U4G provides corporate sponsors with an opportunity to prove their commitment to social responsibility and to make an impact that their customers will see and value. Each corporate sponsor gets a social responsibility profile. This profile shows all the needs that they have funded as well as all the good deeds from users inspired by this need. We call it the sponsor's kindness report, and they can use it to prove to their customers that they take social responsibility seriously, and have backed up their commitment with real-life actions.
U4G is fully backed by the Unite4Good foundation. We are constantly developing business partnerships to fund even more non-profit needs.
