Net2Share is a new model for the activation of networks in close proximity, which allows you to circulate the economy in the community, helping people in difficulty and rewarding those who participate. Net2Share revolutionizes the gesture to donate, making solidarity a simple and daily act: just enter the network of Net2Share, and offer concrete help through your card/app by giving coupons directly to families in need that are in your neighborhood, and you’re rewarded in member stores with dedicated discounts exceeding your donated amount!
The relationship between donors, shopkeepers and beneficiaries will be mediated by a digital app (implementation phase), supported by a physical card and a dedicated website.
