Gofavorit lets you post favors and requests for services of all kinds. This includes any favour you might want done, from having someone pick up your groceries to large-scale art projects that require a few more sets of hands. Goavourit connects you to people who are willing and able to lend you a helping hand, all while knowing that the favour will come back to them. Don’t think you can help? Wrong. Gofavourit does not rely on beefy skill sets, although they can definitely help. The ideal favour for you to perform is easy for you and difficult for the favour-requestee. Can’t reach to change a lightbulb? Post a request and Gofavourit users in the area will be alerted to your need. To discourage fraud, users will be ranked according to a reputation system, not unlike the one that makes Ebay largely scam-free. Our secure logins and community-based user rating system will keep you and your favours safe.
Why just walk to the store when there’s a lightbulb along the way that needs to be changed? Gofavorit harnesses the time and energy we waste and puts it to use in building a stronger community and helping those in it--including you! This is not to mention that helping people is fun and rewarding on an individual level. Why go it alone when there are Gofavorit users in your community who are willing to help?
We are focused on community-building. We are citizens of a society that is increasingly disconnected to itself despite having greater access than ever before. Research has shown that the modern citizen is less likely to know their neighbour, and less likely to engage with strangers on the street. Gofavorit is looking to change this, so that our emotional and social capacity can catch up with our technological capacity.
We’re in beta right now, and to keep things manageable while our team is still small, we’ve decided to keep the site exclusive to those in Toronto and the surrounding area.
Well first of all, you can check out our Help page. If you see something that isn't quite right, or that could use improvement in any way, we'd love to hear it! Fill out the contact form and submit any suggestions for the site or Gofavorit as a whole. Each suggestion will receive a thank you email, and successful suggestions will be rewarded with a permanent mention on the site!
