Compassion is contagious, spread the word.
At Troop, we’re all about good intentions – doing good and feeling really good about it. Through Troop technology, we’re reimagining a new way of doing good by bringing together the right people, at the right time, and for the very best reasons – to feel the good that comes from doing good.
We’re on a mission to make it easier than ever to lend a helping hand. Through our partnerships with charities and non-profits, we’re using technology to match our community’s drive for purpose to their capacity for all kinds of generosity, starting with the fulfillment of local, everyday needs. All the needs come from local charities and non-profits, unmet in your own backyard.
Empowering our Troopers to be part of the good
Leave the backend stuff to us – the logistics, the tech stuff, and everything in between. As a Trooper (our caring neighbours), it’s simple – you choose which local need to fulfill, when you can and for as much or as little as you can. It really comes down to helping on your own terms. You decide if you’re willing and able to unleash your good at any given time. And, when you do, you’ll feel all of it – gratitude, meaning, and connection. That’s how we’re changing the do-good-game.
Alongside our Troopers, we’re building something good here. Let’s make a difference together.
A letter from Kelly Emery, Founder
Hello, I’m so happy you found Troop and that you’re interested enough to be reading this! My name is Kelly and I’m on a serious pursuit to unlock generosity for unrealized happiness.
I started Troop in 2019. I really like business and technology. I believe the best thing about technology is the good we can do with it – I want to use technology to solve everyday problems. And after some serious reflection (a lot of yoga and too many bottles of wine to count), I’ve found my purpose in tackling social challenges with user-friendly technology.
It stems from something Martin Seligman, psychologist and author, once said, “Just as the good life is something beyond the pleasant life, the meaningful life is beyond the good life.”
So, how does one go about creating a meaningful life? Spoiler alert, I don’t have the answer (sorry), but that’s why we’re here and what we want to figure out. I believe meaning can be found in helping others and in building community – and meaning comes from belonging to and serving something beyond yourself. Up for the challenge? I’d love for you to join me on this mission.
I never wanted Troop to be ‘another charity’. I’m not interested in finding new ways to ask people for money or to give back. My vision for Troop is to create a solution to cultivate a different kind of generosity – not just for others, but for oneself, so that Troopers are getting back way more than they give. Humans are hardwired for goodness. I want to unleash that goodness, and everything and every feeling that comes with it.
In the words of Nancy Lublin, Crisis Text Line CEO and Founder, “I am not inspired by helping you find Chinese food at 2am in Dallas, or swipe right to get laid. I want to use tech and data to make the world a better place.” I hear ya Nancy and I’m with ya.
Enter Troop, enter Troopers.
Let’s do good together,
