#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've 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.

As a person who depends on public services (like food stamps) to meet my basic needs, I find that I need to turn to alternate means for my fun and learning. Simbi is one way that I'm trying out!

How The Program Works


For those affected, any service they receive will be Pay it forward 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.


Hurricanes & Fires: How You Can Help


If you live nearby...


  • Can you offer your time to people who need help cleaningand rebuilding?

  • Can you provide rides to people who can’t get from point A topoint B?

  • Might you have some extra storage space in your home, or could watch over someone’s pet while they are evacuated?

  • Do you have extra space in your home? Offer a SimbiStay to amember of our community who has nowhere to go.

  • Musicians are offering to play at shelters, chefs are cooking for displaced victims - perhaps you have a talent you could share to make someone’s day brighter?

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 rebuild 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.
