Favorville. people helping people

Favorville.com is a social networking tool which provides members with the opportunity to help and be helped by others. With Favorville, members can post help requests, offer help and help grow the community. Favorville makes it easy to get in touch and build lasting connections with helpful neighbors, both in your locale or across the global village.

How does it work?

Ask yourself this. If someone you didn’t know asked for your help, would you help? Maybe… How about if that person requesting helped lived in your neighborhood – would you help? Probably.
Here at Favorville we feel strongly that most people, given the opportunity, will indeed help others. In a nutshell, that’s why we created this site – to facilitate the exchange of helpful acts. Whether it’s giving a neighbor a lift into the city, lending someone a ladder or offering someone advice, help is help and the world needs more of it.

Request Help

You’ve come to the right place! It’s easy. Take a minute to register, select your city, find a suitable category (if one doesn’t exist, suggest it!) and enter your post. Try to be as descriptive as possible so potential helpers can respond accurately to your needs. It also helps to list your neighborhood if your request requires a face-to-face meeting. That’s it. Sit back and wait for responses. You will receive an e-mail any time a trusted member of the Favorville community has responded.

Offer Help

There are two ways this can work.

1) If you see a post that you’d like to act on, simply reply to the requester for more details or make an offer to help.

2) If you don’t see something that applies but would still like to help, feel free to create an Offering Help post. Basically, select your city, find a suitable category and enter your post. A common example of this scenario would be – “I’m driving to New York next weekend, anyone need a ride?”

Rate Members

If you received help from another Favorville member, please take a moment to rate your experience. You’ll find all your closed items under the profile section on the site. Simply select Completed Favor and answer a few simple questions – the process will only take a minute or so. It is important for us to track member activity and recognize our most helpful members! Plus, your feedback will help us derive a reliability rating for our members, and this could help future members decide whether they want to help, or accept help, from certain members.

Connections

There are two ways you can grow your connections list.

1) Invite Members. Every member you invite will be automatically added to your connections list.

2) Complete Favors. This is the fun part. Every person you help out or receive help from will be added to your connections list. This feature gives you the opportunity to meet new people and build lasting connections.

Suggestions

Can’t find your city? Thinking of a new category for the site? Suggest it! If you feel something is missing from the site, please let us know. It is important to us that the Favorville community grows stronger. That’s why we encourage suggestions from all users, registered or not. Your suggestions are invaluable to us. Should we choose to take your suggestion, we will notify you by e-mail.

Once logged in, you’ll have the option to invite up to five of your trusted friends with one click. An e-mail invitation will be sent on your behalf inviting them to join.
