Collaboration 2017 was held by Gudppl on the 5th of December 2017, at BMICH (Mihilaka Medura) from 9 AM – 6 PM. Collaboration 2017 was a summit to inspire action where Gudppl officially launched their website and mobile app.
What is Gudppl?
Gudppl is a social network which inspires you to do good. Their motive is to create a world where everybody is compassionate in building really good communities.
Gudppl is a social enterprise. It is a profitable business who does good for people by making it fun for corporates and people to volunteer. They do not want you to just tick volunteering off a check list. They want you to understand why they are helping and the impact that they are making by sharing the stories.
Citibank was the first corporate that collaborated with Gudppl for a Corporate Social Responsibility project. Since then they have completed 250 projects.
Features of Gudppl
Opportunities – It is a tool to get our society’s problems solved efficiently and productively. It will state all the opportunities that you could volunteer for and state what exactly it is that they need. A corporate or an individual can simply choose the right opportunity for them for any cause and get started.
Deed Feed – This is similar to something you would see on Facebook, where you could thank a person for volunteering and write messages on other member’s feeds. This is a great way for everyone on the site to connect. Also, this would look great on your annual report as this is a much easier way to show what you have done.
On the side of your home page, it will also showcase how many hours you have volunteered and the number of events you have volunteered at.
Gud stories – It shows a recap of the event and what was achieved.
