A Granite Bay start-up company is using technology to share stories of inspiration.
The team at Kamere finds inspirational content from across the Internet, and then shares it with you through the Kamere website and its social media accounts.
"Experience some inspiration and feel uplifted and feel good," Kamere founder Kim Box explained. "And start their day on a positive note and in addition share that with their friends and family."
Eventually starting a ripple effect of, what Box calls, an inspiration revolution.
Box was motivated to start Kamere after working 29 years at Hewlett-Packard.
"I left HP and I decided I wanted to do more purposeful things," Box explained.
Living life with purpose led the, then, almost 50 year old to focus on her health. Now, she's an avid triathlete, which is an inspirational feat in itself.
Kamere combines Box's vast tech experience with her desire to enact social good.
"The idea that we could take technology and inspire people," Box marveled.
Kamere also shares stories from their partner organizations like St. Johns Program for Real Change, a shelter which helps women and children go from being homeless to being self-sufficient.
"It's very important for the community to understand how the success stories happen at St. John's," CEO Michelle Steeb explained. "How people are succeeding in order for them to continue to want to invest."
Kamere launched its website in November. They're now working on a mobile app and have turned to crowdfunding to make it happen. They're hoping to raise $35,000.
"There's a lot of inspirational activities that take place, but a story where a life is transformed and inspires someone else, change their life and do something different. That's pretty cool," Box said.
