Many people in life are frustrated with all of the things that they think they are unable to do.
If Everyone Cares wants to turn the tide and help people to focus on all of the things that they can do to help others and of all the great things that are going on in the world. After two years of research a small group of dedicated volunteers have come up with a simple solution that will address the lack of ‘sign-posting’ to projects within communities that provide much needed help and support to those in need.
If Everyone Cares (IEC) is a unique, innovative and forward thinking project that will effectively utilize the power of online technology to empower and strengthen Individuals and Communities. It will do this by providing an Interactive Community Map that pin-points Charities, Non-Profit Companies and Community Projects that provide support to people from all sectors of society ~ from those who are isolated/disadvantaged and needing to find advice or support, to those who have time and the ability to volunteer within their communities, to local businesses who see the benefit of supporting local projects … …
The Interactive Map will also facilitate the networking of existing projects, enabling them to share tools, resources, strategies, services and more. This in turn will minimize duplication and maximize the effectiveness of the support being provided to those who are in need.
The Interactive Map will focus on four main areas of support ~
- Helping those who need help – to find it.
- Sign-posting those who want to help – to projects* that need their support.
- Connecting New and Existing Projects* to each other – so that they can share best practices, tools, strategies, services and more.
- Encouraging businesses – to support projects within their local community, forging stronger community links and building local customer loyalty.
If Everyone Cares also plans to provide online website hosting and training for Projects* that do not have a website presence or would like to save the cost of their existing hosting.
Some of the things listed above have already been started by some amazing organizations and individuals. The Aim is to collaborate, bring everything together in one place and work as one. By working together we can achieve so much more!

A Quick Note
Just think for one moment – has the look that someone just gave you ever changed how you feel? Does a frown bring you down? Does a smile lift your mood?
If each and every one of us took the equivalent of just one minute a day to do something that would lift another person up – do you think that would make a change in the world? We do.
One small act of kindness not only makes the receiver feel good but it also gives you a good feeling too ~ and that cannot be bad!
Even if you were to multiply that single minute by just 0.1 percent of the world’s population it would still be enormous. You need to make the decision and then take action, and it is action that we need to make If Everyone Cares successful.
A Quick Question
May we ask you a quick unrelated question? … … … we assume you said yes!
There are five frogs sitting on a lily pad. One decided to leap off. How many are left?
Did you say 4? – Nope! :)
Did you say none? – because the others either followed or fell off at the same time! – Nope! :)
Did you say 5? – Yay! Correct :))))
You see one of them only decided to leap off. He did not actually take action!
Why would you not want to make a difference? Now is the time to take action by choosing one or more of the simple aims and goals listed above. Your choice can make such a huge difference to either an individual’s or community’s life/lives.
Don’t miss the opportunity to become involved in such a wonderful project that makes dreams, hopes and wishes come true.
and the IEC Team :)
