Creating Safety Nets by Building Stronger Communities is Easy with iShared -Free Goods & Services App


Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” – Helen Keller.

Between job loss and economic downturn, the pandemic has taken its toll on millions of people. Anyone who’s ever experienced near-complete loss will agree that it’s hard to get back on your feet, and no one knows this better than Dr. Julia Harrison. So, today we’ll discuss her story and what paved the way for her new social movement and ingenious app called iShared. 

Relocation And A Natural Disaster

Dr. Harrison is originally from the East coast of the United States but relocated to California to complete her Social Work Doctorate at the University of Southern California. As if moving 3,000 miles away from family and everything you’ve ever known isn’t hard enough, she was faced with a natural disaster during her second semester. 

Known as the Russian River flood of 2019 in Forestville, CA, this unfortunate event caused Dr. Harrison to lose most of her possessions and left her homeless for several months. During this time, a wonderful family had heard her harrowing story and invited her and her cat to stay with them until she got back on her feet. 

However, with no safety net and her family so far away, she couldn’t help but think, “there really should be an app for that!” 

There Should Be An App For That!

There’s an app for everything, right? Well, not quite. At the time, there was no app to connect people with others in the community who had items or services to offer. So, Dr. Harrison saw this as her opportunity to step in and do some good in the world. 

Her vision was to build a platform that would connect people who need items with others who have things to give away. From this vision, iShared was born. But it’s much more than just an app. It’s a sharing movement that’s bound to spread worldwide as soon as word gets out. Furthermore, it’s a great way to help reduce our carbon footprint and preserve our planet for generations to come. 

How Does iShared Work?

Joining the movement is simple; you just download the app and create an account. Doing so allows users to find items such as food, clothing, rides, and so forth for those in need. Alternatively, most people have things they don’t need, and iShared is a great place to “pay it forward.” Though, it shouldn’t be confused with charity because it’s more like reciprocating kindness. 

The bottom line is that we are all in need of a larger safety net and a bit more heart, given the resource deprivation many families are currently facing around the world. Dr. Harrison’s iShared platform provides this much-needed safety net and also allows users to connect with other local people to make exchanges and get their survival needs met. So, not only does the app connect people with services and items for free, but it also aims to build friendships between neighbors as well. 

iShared is starting a worldwide sharing movement, and everyone’s participation is needed! So, check out iShared, download the app, and start sharing today!
