Cincinnati, OH, June 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Wamboo, LLC. has unveiled a new video on YouTube.com called What is Wamboo which explains how the crowd aid site works and introduces the Wamboost, an incentive feature designed to reward acts of kindness and at the same time introduce advertisers to the socially conscious Wamboo Members.
There’s a fun and easy way to lend a hand to people who need it most. Wamboo.com uses the power of social networking to bring people together around individuals and families in need while providing much deserved recognition and assistance to nonprofits, police and fire departments active in helping others.
“The goal of Wamboo.com is to get people the help they need,” said Founder and CEO Dori Gehling. “The Wamboost feature allows the site to continue to provide a unique crowd aid platform: Wamboo takes no cut from donations and 100% of any kindness received goes directly to meet the critical need of the individual or family. Wamboo.com is a trusted, transparent resource for charitable people to find out about causes they otherwise wouldn’t know about.”
Nonprofits, police and fire departments, known as Champions, use the site to post critical needs of individuals and families they sponsor for free.
Members are able to direct their support as they see fit, whether individuals or families, people with specific needs, in a particular part of the world, championed by an organization they like, or someone with a compelling story. Members will also immediately see the effects of their kindness, could earn Wamboost rewards and hardware for their virtual Trophy Case, create or join Teams and more. Members may also choose to give anonymously.
“We are very excited about the launch of the new Wamboo video and the tremendous potential of the Wamboost feature to generate even greater levels of support to our communities,” Gehling added, “The site emerged from beta on June 3, 2011 and feedback during the testing cycle has been fantastic. The video can only help in elevating the public’s awareness of our unique platform and how it works.”

Founded and operated by Dori Gehling, Wamboo.com is a crowdaid platform that leverages the power of social networking for social good. For more information, visit us at Wamboo.com
