BeSharing.org - About Us
We are a group of like-minded individuals who want to have simpler access to charitable organisations and
We want Volunteers to have wider access to charities and to be awarded for their time
We found that trying to find local charities to volunteer for was not as easy as it should be. We also found that when you need to find out information about charities and services it is very time consuming, so we wanted to do something about this to make it quicker and more efficient.
To make it easier to access multiple charities to request information in a few click.To offer a fair and measurable rewards system for volunteering with charities. We want to provide a platform that offers a one-stop solution for Charities to benefit from the act of volunteering and sharing.

Individuals and Charities
For every 200 BeSharing Tokens plus 1000 BeSharing Points, 1 BeSharing coin can be mined. Once a coin is mined, Tokens and Points still stay on your profile but are not eligible again to be mined into BeSharing coins.
Organisations can mine BeSharing Coins but need 2000 BeSharing Tokens and 10,000 BeSharing Points. These totals would be made up through their employee’s interaction with BeSharing.
BeSharing Coins are stored in a BeSharing Coins wallet, which can be added on to the BeSharing Tokens and Points wallet and seen through BeSharing Dashboard analytics.
BeSharing Coins can then be used to become a stakeholder in BeSharing.org.
BeSharing Coins can be used to give to Charities
BeSharing Coins can be used to trade in the Shared Economy. For every trade in the shared Economy using a BeSharing coin a 10% fee is taken which is then redistributed in full to a pool of Charities that are encouraging and participating in collaboration and sharing. Ideally, every Charity in UK/world, receives an equal amount of the share.

Individuals keep their own Tokens, Points and Coins with them throughout their time.
Organisations receive the benefit from their employee’s engagement with BeSharing but the employee keeps their own tokens and Points.
Tokens and Points are portable. An individuals Tokens and Points can be taken with them to a new organisation. An organisation can therefore demonstrate the Tokens and Points accrued during a financial year accounting period, plus the totals generated by their staff.

in rural Essex until his wife became terminally ill. Father of two young girls Lyra and Sofia.
BeSharing.org started with the idea of setting up a website directory for the charity and voluntary sector. Identifying that charity information and opportunities were fragmented online and needed a central hub.
When my mother, then wife were terminally ill, information and services were quickly needed. Contacting charities was time consuming.
My daughters’ school is constantly raising awareness and money for various charities and we thought that these should be recorded to see the different charities they have engaged with.”
Our aim is to make charity access as easy and fun for children, adults, charities and organisations.
We want to acknowledge and award good deeds of sharing.
