How it works

Volenteers are called Heroes and people in need are called Loopers.

A Looper sends a request to TheHeroLoop

We call them Loopers, because they keep the loop of needs going.

Heroes in the area are notified, and one of them accepts the task.

They still need to be confirmed by the Looper, to get mutual acceptance.


A Hero is on
the way to help!

Loopers and Heroes can chat with each other to communicate the task completion details.

As a Hero, you can

Help refugees

Refugees can reach out and find someone nearby (within 20 km radius) to help them. Market our web app in the area - fex in a refugee camp, and reach each other in categories. Find and offer help with housing, transport, food and medicine, or any need.

Connect with locals

People can get to know more people in their neighbourhood by helping them, and are also matched by AI with others that share the same interests. We provided an encrypted way for you to remain anonymous so you can own your personal data.

Get your daily walk

Finding a reason to get your body moving can sometimes be hard. Why not help someone in need to get you moving. Repeat the good deed, get a good rating, and move on up on TheHeroLoop leaderboard.

Help caretakers

The caretaker (a Looper) can reach out to TheHeroLoop via the app and ask a Hero for help. It can be with grocery shopping, transportation, going to the pharmacy or anything you can think of. In a 20 km radius from where you are, in real time.

Get a chance to do what you love

Anna is a student at the university, she loves gardening but rarely gets a chance to do it since she has no garden of her own. Maybe there’s a Looper out there who needs help with gardening their yard?

Help during natural disasters

If there is heavy rainfall causing flooding in your area there is a lot of chaos and destruction and not enough helping hands. You can reach out and help someone to deal with cleaning up by taking a look on The Map. Find a Looper.

As a Looper, you can

Get help with deliveries

Leyah is going to the store to buy groceries. She decides to check TheHeroLoop web app map to see if any Looper in the vicinity might need help getting something from the store since she’s already there. She helps her neighbour Lea and delivers at her door.

Travel together or request a ride

Lucy needs to go up to the capital city from the southern part of the country. She doesn’t have a driver’s license and she doesn’t want to take the train due to Corona. She decides to ask if anyone is travelling in that direction anytime soon.

Donate for reuse and have it picked up

Muzaffar has bought a new couch, but in order for it to fit in, he first needs to get rid of the old one. He tried selling it, but no one wants to buy it. Instead, he turns to TheHeroLoop web app to ask for someone nearby to pick it up for free.

You can help tackle our worlds biggest challenges

Within the next 10 years our world must see the most profound transformation ever known – the countdown is happening. TheHeroLoop has provided a way for everyone, everywhere to everyday make a sustainable difference doing good deeds citizen to citizen in your community. You can help each other with anything. 

We know there are billions out there in need of help, and we want to reward everyone who helps others with HeroPoints – the better your rating, the more HeroPoints you gain. 

An algorithm calculates your rating which not only ranks you on a leaderboard, but also generates HeroPoints to your encrypted Hiro Wallet.  This wallet enables your anonymous decentralised login, and you collect your HeroPoints here.

We are currently working on building an AdPlatform for businesses to  support our cause, so that you can exchange the HeroPoints to coupons through our platform. Help your community and get rewarded. Be a Hero. Make a Hero. Keep the loop going.

Our mission

Reduce loneliness

Our mission is to create a social platform that actually brings people together. We want to start this movement from the bottom, up.

Provide security

We decentralise privacy data and remove toxic use, so we can provide a safe and private platform for all, maintaining high GDPR protocols.

Help create a better tomorrow

TheHeroLoop wants a healthier, happier way of life for all – at all ages. So we created a concrete way for everyone with a need to be matched with someone to help. We want to support transforming our world – to create a better tomorrow, for all life on Earth. We built a gamified way that promotes behaviour change, where millions of Hero actions and services can be carried out every day. Be the local Hero.

TheHeroLoop supports the UN Sustainability Development Goals – a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. From the 17 goals these are the one’s we focus on in our first release:

With TheHeroLoop you can be matched with those who want to share their surplus with you - a farmer, a grocery store etc. Instead of throwing away food, share it with the hungry.

By using TheHeroLoop you not only contribute to your community's health and well being but also your own. Helping others has proven to increase good health and well-being.

By using decentralised technology TheHeroLoop made it possible for you to be anonymous and own your own data. There are no differences made whoever you are.

TheHeroLoop provides a way to acquire new skills by helping the citizens in the neighbourhood where you live. You will gather points for your wallet based on your rating.

One of TheHeroLoop missions is to provide robust tech for all, this means providing access to data driven and connected apps for everyone across the world.

With TheHeroLoop you can reach out within your community and exchange or give away things. One persons waste, another persons gift. You can also ask to share transportation.

With TheHeroLoop your local farmer and grocery store can reach out to the community with an invitation to a farmers market or inform that expired products are at a low price. Harvests and good products should not go to waste.

In TheHeroLoop AI filters toxic use, and combats all sorts of organised crime. The web app promotes solutions to everyday problems and the mission is to contribute to a more civil just and peaceful society.

TheHeroLoop partners with cluster networks and global companies that promote responsible computing and UN's SDG agenda. It's only together we all can mould our world into what we want it to be. Better. Together.

Everyone can act on transforming our world. Be a Hero.
