The 1k Project uses personal networks to directly match a family impacted by the pandemic with a family committed to giving them $1k for 3 months.
Sadly, millions of people in the U.S. have lost their incomes because of COVID-19. The 1K Project seeks to help those families by matching them with a sponsor who agrees to give them $1,000 a month for 3 months - enough to keep them going until the economy is hopefully in a stronger position. The platform works through a chain of trusted referrals rather than self-nomination to ensure that beneficiaries are people genuinely in need (for instance, an employer may nominate one of their staff who they have had to make redundant). The donations typically go towards helping families pay for groceries, rent, basic utilities, and medical bills.
