OUTDATED TEXT

We have the tools at our fingertips, and you are one of the few who really know how to use them...

How much time do you spend on social media? On Reddit? On Discord?

You know that it doesn’t matter if the conversation thread is about the latest first-person shooter or Elon’s new bonkers idea, you eventually see society’s problems leaking in. You may not realize it, but childhood trauma is behind most of it (if you want to find out how right now, go here).

We now understand that childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) leave an imprint that haunts us into adulthood. Fortunately, we also know that these problems are not unsolvable. But in our complex, interconnected (yet strangely isolating) modern world, we can’t solve these problems with pencil, paper, upvotes, retweets, fundraisers and joining hands. We need inventive, tech-based solutions that can do what technological innovations have done throughout human history: produce faster and better results than people can do on their own.

That’s where you come in. Check out the ways below that you can get involved. There is no great time commitment required. Simply watch a video, read a post, upvote someone’s idea, provide feedback or post an idea of your own. Anything you wish. It all makes a difference!

It’s very likely that someone sent you a link to this website with a comment like: “You’re the smartest techie person I know. You really should check out 100% Community. They’re implementing real change.” If that’s close to what happened, then I can guarantee that both those statements that got you here are true. The 100% Community initiative really is about implementing measurable change in the 10 vital sectors that will improve the lives of millions of families, reduce childhood trauma and save taxpayers billions of dollars. 

This isn’t hyperbole or wishful thinking. The two articles below will give you the background of the 100% Community initiative. If you want even more info, leave this website open and go to AnnaAgeEight.org in a new tab. We purposely made the info on that website succinct to get everyone up to speed quickly. You may also want to download one or both books that all this is based on, but going to the website and getting the books is not required to get started. 

Here’s what you will find on this website. We start with an overview then split everything into 10 sectors that need some serious change. To show just how uncomplicated the change we are looking for really is, we then give 1o innovation areas for each of the sectors. Inside each innovation you will find projects. As a tech innovator, we aren’t asking you to take on the projects (but you can if you happen to be in a position to do so). What we need from you are YOUR IDEAS. We want to know how to use technology to make each of the projects and innovations more efficient, cheaper and easier to implement. Your ideas just might save lives.
