UpliftNow is a nonprofit social enterprise organization. Our mission is to unite community commerce and service by providing a technology platform that enables people to easily buy and sell from one another and with local and global businesses, help contribute to building thriving schools, churches and charitable organizations, create job opportunities, and uplift one another!
The online platform can be easily accessed 24/7 from around the world and is free to join and participate in. We’ve got a few guidelines, but hey, they’re simple and just common sense, to help keep the community vibrant and fun.
The medium of exchange of the UpliftNow community is what we call community “Trade Tokens”. The community tracks these barter Trade Tokens (TT for short) for our members and makes it easy for community members to buy and sell stuff from one another similar to other consumer commerce sites such as Offer Up, LetGo, Craigslist, Nextdoor, etc. We do not charge any fees whatsoever to join, buy, sell or donate your community tokens.
