For anyone wanting to understand a bit more about we we impose this restriction, we break it down into 3 categories: Security, Trust, and Benefits.
We want everyone to have access to Blue. If you think it would help you, please reach out below. We will work with you to find a partner.
Blue is a really unique product – it has similarities to GoFundMe, social networks, volunteer programs and messaging services. As a result, we need to guard against a wide variety of risks – fraudulent fundraisers and identity theft are things we intend to keep off our platform. By going through a partner organization that knows families like yours personally, we limit the risk that users with dishonest intent get access to Blue’s most powerful features.
Often run by professionals, survivors or bereaved family members, our partners understand your needs, often long before you do, and in a way that we never will. Rather than put thousands of families like yours through the whole process of evaluating Blue, we think it’s better to build the trust with these organizations. If they see the value in Blue, they will pass it on to you.
Blue benefits families like yours, but it also benefits non-profits and charities. Your friends and family will do the work that they don’t have capacity for, and Blue’s ability to quantify their impact can help them raise money and secure corporate sponsorships.
