NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jan. 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Flock, the first social network for solving the world’s problems, has launched their initial Crowd funding campaign through (, the leading international crowd funding platform. The money raised during this campaign will help fund the development of a digital platform in which individuals “flock” together to contribute their time, talent, and treasure to solve major world problems such as poverty, human trafficking, environmental sustainability, and more.

Flock’s mission is to build a social utility to empower visionaries and problem solvers around the world to connect and create solutions to the world’s biggest problems. "Imagine the possibilities if every person alive today committed to socially tithe or give at least ten percent of their time, talent, and/or treasure to solving the world's problems. Now, imagine teaching children from a young age about this intrinsic responsibility,” said Zachary Hamilton, Flock co-founder, CEO. “Flock’s vision is to provide an aggregated portal for individuals to give this social tithe thereby revolutionizing the way human beings solve the world’s major problems,” he said.

Think of Flock ( as the search engine and social network– a crowd solution – to address the most critical problems we face in the 21st Century. All the world’s great minds, visionaries, and innovators from leading universities, philanthropic organizations, government agencies, and more can unite to solve complex problems by gathering teams (coveys) to communicate, collaborate, and innovate. I believe that innovation and the human spirit are the keys to making a real difference.

“What we're doing with Flock is combining those elements into a platform unlike any other by crowdsourcing innovation and finding solutions,” said Max Black, Development Lead for Flock.

Flock’s Indiegogo fundraising campaign individuals an important role in building the world’s first open source knowledge portal and collaboration platform specifically designed to harness the collective intelligence and creative power of humanity to change what’s possible. We're revolutionizing the way human beings solve problems by ushering a new age of philanthropy.

“Money is the most common contribution made toward philanthropic causes, and while money is a necessary component to solving the world’s problems, it should not be applied unilaterally. Flock’s platform can monetize time, talent, and treasure through crowd solving,” said Mark Filaroski, Flock co-founder/chairman and technology start-up advisor. “I’ve built very successful businesses and there is gratification in those successes; but, Flock’s potential reaches beyond monetary success. Flock can create transparency in a world that needs answers, solutions, and the platform to tell the story thereby creating a better world for my daughter and future generations,” Filaroski said.

Imagine a world where every individual has human liberty—an end to human trafficking. Imagine a world where everyone has food, shelter, and clothing—an end to poverty. Imagine a future for environmental sustainability—an end to environmental destruction. Alone, we cannot solve these or other world problems. But, just as birds of a feather flock together for the benefit of the group, people “of a feather” (those sharing the same altruistic goals) can flock together with a force powerful enough to change the world for good. We’re greater together. Let’s change the world!
