Hi.  I’m excited to share Dandi with you. Confronted by the enormous challenges we face both locally and globally, it’s easy to feel powerless and overwhelmed. For the past 4 years, I have been lucky to work for the UNDP as a goodwill ambassador and have seen not only the real challenges we face but also been blessed to meet dedicated people from all over the world desperately wanting to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, charities have to spend way too much time fundraising, branding and networking– and less time doing the important work. I have had countless discussions trying to find a way to better this system. By using technology there is a way. We need to insist on working together across nonprofits to make sure we achieve the goals we all share, as quickly and efficiently as possible. That resources go to the groups that can solve whatever a specific challenge calls for, as soon as the need is there. Dandi is a tool that can enable us to do just that. Using and combining huge amounts of data from nonprofits on the ground, we will be able to direct funds to where they will have the most positive impact– faster and more efficiently than ever before. I urge you to check out Dandi and join this new movement of collaborative humanitarian action. Thank you, Nikolaj

Super interesting! This is like an intersection of Influencers with non-profits they really care about. Can totally see this being a great platform to get first-timers engaged in donating.

Thanks Nikolaj. :-) Hi Everyone -- here are some of the features we're currently working on: • Fast, Transparent Give-Tech: All funds reach local nonprofits within a few days, which makes a big difference. We operationalize nonprofit output via standardized metrics. • Rewards: Donors on Dandi get access to gift cards, swags, and special experiences, including TEDx style talks, skill-sharing workshops, and AMAs. • A Network of Trust & Impact: Dandi cultivates a network of vetted, collaborative, and trusted nonprofits working on critical issues. Our goal is to introduce new innovative ways to unlock direct, granular funding for effective front line nonprofits. We don't believe altruism should be a sacrifice for anyone. We'd love to have you help test Dandi and shape the product. What would you hope to see in a product like this? Please let us know in the comments.
