Many people enjoy a sense of reward from helping others, whether by donating a can of soup during a food drive, lending a hand at a homeless shelter or donating money to a good cause.
Our primary mission objectives are:
1- Practice and inspire charity
2- Strengthen belief in a Creator
Everyone begins on Level 1 where they may:
-Create a profile
-Sign up or create volunteer opportunities
-Earn candles for participating in volunteer activities.
Perhaps you help an elderly neighbor by cleaning or picking up groceries once a week or maybe you help a disabled veteran with a ride to their pharmacy. Maybe someone in a nursing home or assisted living center is lonely and you're interested in reading a book together. Perhaps you're helping support reconstruction efforts in Haiti or you regularly give 10% of your income to your church or favorite charity. In any case, updating your profile with these experiences can inspire others and help you earn candles.
Candles can be retained to give extra light to our "city on a hill," or they may be exchanged for:
-Donated prizes or services
-Tickets for prize raffles
-Meetings with high level VIPs on the network
Candles help us measure achievement towards our first objective while halos help us measure achievement towards our second.
Achieving our second objective is assessed through knowledge of theology, as well as philosophy, justice, human rights, science, statistics and human health insofar as these subjects overlap.
Halos may be earned through retreats, seminars, special events, online or local classes and book clubs. Halos are similar to candles with respect to their ability to be retained or exchanged.
Because our second mission objective is to strengthen belief in a Creator, halos allow users to advance to Higher Levels in the network.
