#Velloe: Make your world better.

 

 

What is Velloe?

Velloe is a way of empowering people to do good for their community. We created a fun way to get people involved in charities by including it in their daily routine. This is how it works: Charities register on Velloe for free, businesses list themselves on Velloe and take the 10% pledge, then consumers download the app so they can shop smart! Velloe allows users to log in and view all the socially responsible businesses in their area so they can make an informed decision about where they are shopping. All we ask is that when businesses generate more profits from Velloe, they donate at least 10% back to the charities they support.

How is Velloe changing the world?

People are changing the way they shop. Consumers are focusing more on ensuring that what they’re shopping for is benefiting the world. Businesses are seeing the impact that volunteering and donating has on gaining loyal customers. Velloe makes it easier for everyone to connect to those businesses. By making socially responsible shopping easier, we will see a growth in customers shopping at Velloe-recommended local businesses that are giving back to their communities. As businesses gain customers, charities gain donations and the community becomes a better place! Check out our Virtuous Cycle.

The Virtuous Cycle

Velloe follows the virtuous cycle mentality. What goes around comes around. We believe that change starts with small actions. If we can get consumers to start shopping at socially responsible businesses, then we can encourage businesses to donate more to charities as they grow. We might even get some businesses to sign up to start donating! Once the cycle starts, charities will gain more support and communities will get to enjoy the awesome benefits from the Velloe virtuous cycle.
