Some of my students’ friends have started an organization to do some work in Lagos. I want to introduce you to WeCyclers and invite you to do some good and support them in their seed funding campaign.

Wecyclers is an organization that gives low-income communities in developing countries a chance to capture value from waste and clean up their neighborhoods through incentive based recycling.

We are excited to announce the launch of our StartSomeGood campaign, a step forward in tackling the daunting waste challenge that faces communities in the developing world.

Through this campaign we are raising funding to launch our pilot recycling program in Lagos, Nigeria this August. We will establish a proof of concept pilot to test our SMS platform and collection infrastructure and develop the business case for scaling up to reach hundreds and thousands of people.

We would love if you could help us spread the word:

1)  Check out our video on our StartSomeGood page and support our efforts. 

2) Share our StartSomeGood page: email it to friends, post it on facebook, tweet about it and help us get the word out any way possible!

3) We've created a template tweet you can use if you prefer to share via Twitter:

Thanks so much for your support!
