The Social Safety Network
We-Guild is a way for self-employed people to get sick-pay. A reputation and trust based network of mutual support where everyone you trust chips in when you need it in exchange of you chipping in for them when they need it.
Watch the video if you haven't already and check the rest of the info below. And remember that...
It's a project in the making and it needs your support to secure investment!
So if you want to help make it happen do all that social media stuff (liking, following and especially sharing it!) and join the mailing list to participate in things. Or if you can think of other ways to support us we'd love to hear from you.
Let's make We-Guild happen!
How it works
1) Connect with people
that you know and trust
4) If you're ill you can ask for help
3) See how your network evolves with your Colour map
6) And you say thanks!

"Unless men are maddened in the battlefield, they 'cannot stand it' to hear appeals for help, and not to respond to them. The hero goes; and what the hero does, all feel that they ought to have done as well.
Because the mutual-aid feeling has been nurtured by thousands of years of human social life and hundreds of thousands of years of pre-human life in societies."
Peter Kropotkin 'Mutual Aid', 1902
That's all for now. Remember to like, follow and share to help happen!
