OFFLINE Members collaborate with local communities to solve social problems by attending community building programs that include events, classes, workshops and community think tank sessions.
Members are connected to resources and projects based on their talents and skills on a particular project. Connections result in matches that go beyond the consuming of products or purchasing of services but of collaboration on similar interests and visions to co create a new economy.
THE COMMUNITY BUILD PROGRAM : Members pay a $12.00 and/or a $144 annual fee to join the CACOON.
$5.00 of a members fee is donated to the Storehouse Foundation and then returned to each members storehouse account monthly as an educational tool to learn how to sustainably utlize their resources in the new economy.
Members funds are used to support:
Community Building Programs

There are eight Portals within the CACOON ONLINE PLATFORM
Each Portal is designed to support the education of Community Cooperatives in three areas.
1. Social impact innovation
2. Community development
3. Collaborative sharing of local and global resources
As a member of CACOON you are part of a community building networks that is a guide in learning how to operate and share within a sustainable social Impact community.
Members form in various groups in order to share resources and solve social issues and problems through project development. We have designed a way for members to create small communities to collaborate and cooperate and support each other.
A key component to building our new communities is to educate and create access to resources in many ways for the building of co-creative social entrepreneurial projects. The CACOON has developed a revenue share program and also gives 20 percent of its revenues to the Storehouse Fund for local and global community development.
Community Programs are various programs connecting each of the portals that the Storehouse Fund will fund to support CACOON members in creating their projects.
In order to utilize the community programs within the network members must collaborate within three types of communities.
• Pods 3 to 12 members
• Groups 12 to 48 embers
• Clusters 48 to 144 members
When clusters self organize into community co-operatives they can then begin to collectively collaborate with other community co-operatives and form regional, national or global communities called community co-operatives.Community Co-operatives 144 to 144,000 members
Education is key to any self supportive system. Providing members with the tools and resources they needs opens up access to many levels of support so they can create the lives they so desire through knowledge and experiential learning.
Educational Series – As a paid member you receive access to educational information from other members and Cacoon partners.
1. Series will include live interactive workshops, seminars and classes.
2. Members receive information of their specific interest based on their Blue Print DNA.
The Enhance Portal is used to bring even more clarity to your projects.
The Enhance button acts as a wish list by saving resources and projects that you believe will enhance your quality of life. The community resource tree will now be able to supply you with information and materials that are more relevant to the things that Enhance your life.
When an Enhance has been saved members can then organize these resources by categories onto what we call a Vision Board. Once the resources are categorized you are then prompted to begin creating projects by choosing only those items that you feel will most strongly provide you with the greatest use value.
The Resource Portal is an Inventory of a members asking and giving.
All resources, skills and talents that are needed to create the desired reality you want to create take place in the project portals asking and giving.
In order to create projects you will need to identify what type of people, places and things you need to create your desired reality.
You’ll also identify your primary objectives, motivators and inspirations, and determine what you’re willing to give in exchange by what you have in skills, talents or resources.
With your choices made you are now ready to activate your Asking and Giving and the system will then match you to the resources and prepare you to develop projects.
CACOON works as a universal manager of the resources you are in need of and also resources that you have to share.
Once you have decided on the resources that will Enhance your life or a Project you desire to create you will then be able to create projects to crowd source and/or crowd fund your vision, dream or social impact project.
