What's with the name?
A lot of people have been asking, “How did you get the name Leverage?”. We’re glad you asked.
We have the audacity to believe that people generally want to do good, improve the world and leave it better than they found it. The problem is we don’t always go through with actually doing it. Why is that? Most of us make excuses about not having enough time or finances or something that seems like a good reason at the time.
Think about a lever--an old fashioned tool. A lever is defined as a compelling force and a means of exerting pressure in order to accomplish something. It is a strong support that is used to lift and move something much larger than itself. Changing the world is daunting. It is a heavy burden that seems impossible to move. And it is for one person. But when we work together we become a strong support and a compelling force and we are capable of accomplishing something amazing.
We want people to realize that they don’t have to have all the time or money in the world to make a difference. We want to encourage people to use exactly what they have, right where they are at and leverage it to better the world. The thing about leverage is that something very small can create a huge impact. You just have to jump in and start.
And that’s exactly what we’re about. We want to jump in and start and we want you to join us! We want to see people have clean drinking water and be rescued from oppression and slavery. We want to see lands reforested and protected. We want people to have the opportunity to be paid fairly. And we want you to be a part of that.
Audacious? Yes. But can we make a difference? Absolutely.
So join us.
Right where you are.
With exactly what you have in your hands.
Leverage it to change the world.
I can't wait to buy coffee from you!
