Where E-Commerce Serves Humanity

We're on a mission to get humanitarian supplies to those in need quickly and efficiently.  In 2015, we began building an e-procurement marketplace for aid & development products that meet humanity's needs. Just as e-commerce has transformed every other industry, the aid world needs to be brought into the 21st century with the power of a new platform!  When disaster after disaster took place in 2017 from Hurricane Harvey to Puerto Rico, there were millions in need of supplies and millions wanting to help in a concrete way. Team TLM was frustrated, infuriated and felt a bit helpless. And then we had our ah-ha moment.

With our ecommerce platform loaded up with relief supplies, why not allow nonprofits to post the supplies they've determined they need to help people in the form of crowdfunding campaigns. Whether the supplies are for a preparedness program, a development initiative to help those in poverty or for disaster response, crowd funding can quickly help get them deployed in a transparent and cost effective way. So we built Level Giving. 

By launching these campaigns on a central platform, donors can see exactly what products are being purchased, for whom, and where they're being sent. Nonprofits are able to raise the money they need to deploy the supplies, and the donors are involved in the entire process and see their donations making a difference.Unfortunately, the rate of natural disasters is increasing, poverty is still prevalent and man-made crises are on the rise. Thankfully, humanitarian engineering and technology innovation is also on the rise as embodied in The Level Market's bustling marketplace.

During our time on the ground in more than 30 countries, including conflict zones and impoverished nations, we experienced the difficulties of sourcing and purchasing quality aid supplies.  As a custom e-procurement marketplace and crowdfunding platform, we offer everything from tents to reusable sanitary pads that will bring any relief effort or entrepreneurial program to life.
