#SimbiRelief

Help those affected by human and natural disasters


Simbi is built on people helping people – directly, the old fashioned way. In light of the recent natural disasters sweeping the Americas, and the recent terror attack in Las Vegas, we created the #SimbiRelief program to allow normal people to support those impacted by these disasters to get the help they need, one human to another. Now, we're re-engaging in a similar effort in the fight against COVID-19.

How The Program Works


For those affected, any service they receive will be Pay It Forward - meaning it won’t cost the recipient a thing. Those providing the services, however, will compensate for their efforts in simbi credits. As a token of our gratitude, we'll credit you 20 each time you support someone via a service tagged '#SimbiRelief'. Let’s come together as a community and support those who are hit hardest by these unfortunate situations. We need each other.

COVID-19: How You Can Help


If you live nearby...


  • Can you offer your time to people who need help getting supplies while in isolation?

  • Can you sew or 3D-print personal protective equipment (PPE)?

If you can help from afar...


  • Do you know how to navigate insurance claims and/or government forms? Offer up your time virtually to walk someone through the piles of paperwork.

  • Millions of people are left without an income as businesses close their doors. Can you help someone with their job search through resume editing, career coaching or financial planning?

  • Are you a lawyer or paralegal? Thousands are suddenly in need of free legal advice and don’t know where to turn.

  • Are you able to send items from afar? Whether it’s a handcrafted piece of art for a child or a homemade jar of jam, you might be able to show people who lost a lot how much they are cared for while making their day a bit easier.

  • Are you good at logistical support? Many people need help planning routes out of disaster zones, finding open shelters or hotels, and other logistical issues.

  • Do you have experience hiring qualified contractors or repairmen? Simbi folks need help to maintain sanity in their homes and businesses but don’t know where to start. Give some advice.

  • Listening and emotional support. Many are dealing with the awful reality of loss and grief, so offering virtual support can be a light that guides someone through the dark tunnel.
