ABOUT US

Our Story

A few words from our founder, Eric.

Hiya, through my work with YOUTH-LEADER, I meet the most wonderful young hero*ines, and get to see their adventures unfold. Their daily posts uplift my days, I marvel at genius moves that they come up with, and I thoroughly enjoy being able to help, to chat and celebrate achievements. It inspires my own life! Their stories enable me to inspire and empower others to take action on causes they love. Hence,

#1 I love helping hero*ines evoke enormous good for people and planet, and achieve their dreams.

My life has grown incredibly rich in relations, dreams, feeling, vision, confidence, ability to give … and I know that in a world and time with so many challenges (and idiots) as ours, it’s a thing that billions can benefit from. Hence,

#2 I love offering you the same blissful experience to uplift your daily life, workplace, family, and the greater community – by uniting like-hearted folks.

Now – imagine this in every district, every town, workplace and school. Yeah, people love it, and that’s how we have quickly begun to grow in numbers. And now, also you are here. Yippieh! Get involved, and wield your magic!

 

Why am I doing this?

I came across this neat personality test, with nice cartoon characters. Works spot on for many! It does for me.

Here is MY personality

… it’s pretty obvious in my work. Check out the link.

ENFJ-personality

“People with the Protagonist personality type are passionate altruists, … unlikely to be afraid to take the slings and arrows while standing up for the people and ideas they believe in – this personality type wants to lead the way to a brighter future, whether it’s by leading a nation to prosperity, or leading their little league softball team to a hard-fought victory.”

See? I am genuinely coded 100% for the cause. It’s my DNA and fulfillment to help others live in inner and outer peace, joy and abundance. Anything else is boring, and to me – a personal fail!

So, multiplied with my Leo and Blue Eagle zodiacs this makes the inner alchemy of the “good king” wanting to make life awesome for everyone; and my goal is: to equip all caring people to empower the Change Generation and implement humanity’s finest solutions for peace, bliss and abundance for all, and create a world of awesome for all. Objections?

The Boost! Club is part of a bundle of ventures to make it happen, with milestones of YOUTH-LEADER high impact student clubs at 100,000 to 1 million schools. 

So, here comes YOU, willing to live your best self, dare to be grand and be an adult : “a guardian protecting and restoring a magnificent planet and a life of peace, joy and abundance for the little ones of today and the future.” Yeah, u legend!

I know u r busy, and we have no time to waste, so I make it easy for you. Now let’s get to work, we have a planet to save!

Eric, Planetary Guardian

P.S. It comes with ample fun, play and dance, trust me.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Super simple + with a million exciting options!

#1 DONATE

to your favorite hero*ine, badass project or groundbreaking program.

(tech critters : add a cool hero gallery screenshot here!)

EXAMPLE

Pooja got 24,000 slum kids into school last year, for free, for unlimited time, their stationery paid, too. Her personal expenses to “keep going” are $120 a month, $1,440K a year. That’s 7 cents a kid. 16 for $1€, a ball of ice cream.

YOU SEE IT UNFOLD!

before your eyes – since our hero*ines vividly document their activities on social media.

#2 ENJOY GOOD NEWS

Everybody loves it, and the world needs it! We create them together and run a full fledged magazine, with stories, films and music for your daily enjoyment – and to spread around you!

#3 IN-KIND

Depending on your personal access, you can

  • reach 100 co-workers, 10,000 readers, 1,000,000 followers
  • give space in your (friend’s) medium
  • score hero*ines a social media campaign
  • produce an App for us
  • give space for workshops, summer camps
  • gift them a stay in your holiday lodge
  • goodies, and a million other things
  • help with shipping and distribution

+ BRING IN OWN IDEAS

A lady opened up her villa for YL camps. Legend!

Is Boost! Club run by volunteers?

YES.

And we have no office costs, we work from our laptops.

Where does my money go?
If you donate to the Boost! Flow Fund, it finances

  • hero/ines
  • printing / shipping YL Media Packs to schools and communities

depending on current priorities and opportunities.

Once we have larger amounts of money,  we will also have polls, so that donors can vote on where to invest current funds.

Does the platform keep a %age?

That’s a two-fold matter.

1. Boost! Club uses 10% of donations for the YL Fund to finance urgent hero*ines’ initiatives, youth leadership trainings programs, printing, distribution, indispensable tech stuff.

2. We lose 0% platform fees! Our friendly crowdfunding platform SUPPORT charges us no fee (whereas other popular platforms charge 3-10%). This means that we lose only the mandatory paypal or credit card transaction fees.

= We have close to 0 operational costs! 

Among NGOs, 10-30% are common, they have their reasons. We are super happy to say: 100% goes to youth leadership! 

We do not have official “charity seals.” The german one is quite costly, so that it is not an option for now. Maybe later. 

How long until my donation manifests?

WE ACT QUICKLY.

Donations to Hero/ines are collected on the platform (to avoid multiple transaction fees) and sent to them the next month.

Donations to the Flow Fund are quickly invested in our current priorities, like printing, shipments of media packs etc

Our Hero*ines mostly have low level milestones, so that we can achieve them quickly and report back with photos and cheers of celebration!

Do I get to see results?
YES.

That’s the idea!

Our hero/ines are not only busy as bees but also highly communicative.

They document their activities on social media. Hence, our social media practically report “live” AND our newsletters bundle up current activities, behind the scenes info, impact reports and plans, feedback, ideas and needs for donations, in-kind support etc. Their Profiles galleries and videos also give you deep impressions of what they do. Then, LIVE video meetings unveil even more details, and some of us get to visit the places in person.

Who guarantees your & their integrity?
Well, nobody. And – all of us. And – YOURSELF.

Let’s begin with YOU. You have a sense of the world, intuition, you see what’s going on with these people, their initiatives what they have been doing, and what they are doing right now. Trust yourself.

  • 0% deduction
  • 0% staff cost
  • Vivid documentation and live meets
  • They are showered with our societies’ highest awards
  • Listen to their voices. Feel the power, fierce love and purity

The Hero/ines are teens, or have started as teens, from pure innocent love, vision and care, and have proven their priorities 24/7 for years. Living under their parents’ roof, they had no need to make money for themselves, and their focus is not on celeb games, fashion, cars or glitter, as one can tell from their vivid and authentic documentation. How many youth or adults do you know in person or from media can live up to their virtues? These youth do not change, they are the kind of lifelong changemakers.

And – when their paths change to other priorities, they will have no ongoing activities to boost!, no more time for interactions, or other means of finance – therefore no need for the Boost! Club any longer.

Finally, there’s me, Eric, as guardian and doorkeeper of this program, operating by an own kind of strictest standards of selection

  • high tangible impact, not motivational talking heads
  • incl accessibility for training inspired peers via skype, email, and hi5′ supporters in live video meetings
  • no compromises through fund or sponsor egos
  • sacred warior values – being a Giver not a Taker
  • any shady stuff would feel bad and threate the mission. Why do it?

In anything YOUTH-LEADER and Change Generation Rising, I select ONYL the purest of humanity to guarantee the young generation the best, efficient solutions and helpers for achieving their dreams – and humanity’s grand common dream,

Many “famous” changemakers do not qualify for our selection. The general public does not know about suboptimal things going on behind the scenes. I do. And it’s not pretty.

So, damn it, baby, I STAND FOR THEIR QUALITY, and YOU have to spend a little time watching, see what’s going on and make up your own New Able, Active Citizen’s mind to assess what’s truly pure quality. And when you find better, invest there.

If you want to invest in high impact pure Griffindors – here is the place!

Ahoi!

Can I invest for / in my Own City?
YES.

For example, for LOCAL BOOSTING, you could fund = “order”

  • 20 books, 20 micro-mags …

OR

  • 20 media packs to schools and libraries
  • 5,000 flyers for local distribution
  • 1,000 micro-magazines for distribution
  • 3 poster exhibits

or WHATEVER amount. IT IS UP TO YOU.

You can simply quickly informally

  • seed those media, and leave it open what inspired people will do

or

  • “add” x-tra energy and inspiration by giving presentations at schools, setting up exhibits, a stand at fests, connecting with media

In this case, it would make sense to form a UNIT and get on our map, for long-term interactions. Yippieh!

Got another question?

Let us know.

Please be kind. Say something nice. Thank you.

5 + 3 =
