SHARING IS

CARING

Caritas' new sharing platform for ONG and people that like to share their things and time.

THE BRIEF

Create the look and feel for this new sharing website, 'Partilhar' (sharing), a platform that allows people that want to give something with local organisations; the website also is to allow people that are struggling with specific needs (the 'new poor') but are too ashamed to contact a charity.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Caritas confederation is a worldwide ONG dedicated to relief, development and social service. Partilhar is its new online platform to connect people that want to give something (time, money or physical assets) with local organisations.

SOLUTION

Based on the work done on the campaign, the website uses its visuals in the homepage as a way to easily explain the project concept, as well as treat both types of users with the same 'dignity' and importance. Two major flows were created for both sides of the page, one for people that had something to share and the other for people (or organisations) that had specific needs.

Also on the webpage a list of friends that are already 'doing the right thing' (this list implemented through the open facebook session of the visiting user), to help give it a communal sense.

The profile area shows user's activity, each one with status and details (when available); here is where the user can follow up on schedules to deliver something (things or volunteer time).

On the ONG list, every user can check what organisations are looking for. This allows things hardly achievable through offline networking, such as remote volunteering or donations to distance areas of the country.
