It’s time to change the way we help others. Join us today and make a difference in REAL time. . .

Real Time Difference will provide the world’s first online real time charitable donation platform allowing a donor to donate to a recipient who will be provided relief within a twenty four hour period. This is done by using the power of the internet and the fifteen degree rotation of the earth, which provides an hour for each time zone.  Real Time Difference will match donors with recipients so that the relief is provided in the fastest, most efficient manner allowing to make a difference in “real time.” Let’s make a difference together!

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS IN REAL TIME

Step 1

A family or child in need visits a Difference Center with their needs request by 10 am of their morning. A counselor will enter their needs information on our website at www.realtd.org. Once completed, their request will then be evaluated by our staff and a determination is made on how their needs can best be fulfilled.

Step 2

The counselor then captures a 30 to 45 second video clip allowing the family or child to introduce themselves and explain their needs. This video along with their information is then published as an online video profile in real time on our website www.realtd.org immediately.

Step 3

Organizations and individuals looking to make a difference in someone’s life, also called a “donor”, can then visit our website www.realtd.org from most any internet connected device. Thus, allowing them to browse through the online video profiles previewing a family or child’s needs from around the world.

Step 4

Once a donor selects a child/family they wish to donate to, the donor will enter their donation amount and payment details online from the comfort of their internet connected device. In real time, the donor’s payment will be sent directly to the “Difference Center”. Once the donation is received, the counselor will purchase those items originally requested for by that family or child within the same day..in REAL TIME.

Step 5

By that same afternoon, the family or child will revisit the Difference Center to pick up their items. This will also allow the RTD counselor to capture a 30 to 45 second video clip of the family or child receiving their donation and also giving them an opportunity to thank their donor for making a difference.

Step 6

This “after” video is then published to the family or child’s online video profile and the donor is informed that they may view the video at their convenience.
