weBounty was founded by Marek Belski and Alan Davis in early 2015. They saw an opportunity for activists and crowdfunders to work together to shape the future. Before starting weBounty, Marek participated in over 300 crowdfunding campaigns as well as signed more than 100 online petitions, and Alan was passionately following local and international politics. Together, they committed to creating a platform that would empower people to lobby for the change they want to see in the world.
As a group, we can influence more change than as individuals. We all know that money talks, and as a group, we have more money at our disposal to influence that change. We shouldn’t leave social or political change to well-funded lobbyists paid for by large corporations and special interests. With weBounty, anyone can become a lobbyist with crowdfunding.

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. -- Ryunosuke Satoro, Japanese poet
