The Shield Mutual Pay-it-Forward Society (PiFS) is a free, voluntary and experimental mutual aid platform. Joining is easy. Then you receive one or two emails per week with aid requests. File your own aid requests, too. Here’s how it works.
- Join the PiFS using the form below. Enter your first name, last name and email address.
- Activate your subscription by clicking the activation link in an email you will immediately receive.
- You will receive an aid request email every Thursday with one or more requests from fellow members of the PiFS. You may receive a second one on any day of the week in case of a member emergency. But you will never receive more than two emails in any calendar week. You can also view aid requests on the Shield Mutual website.
- Pay it forward by acting on the aid request. Or not. It’s your call.
- Instantly leave the PiFS at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any list email.
- You can file up to one (1) new, non-emergency request every three (3) months by making an annual $12 donation. And/or, receive a free aid request for each year of membership in the PiFS that you complete. Paid members get one free aid request per month.
- Invite more people to join by referring them to ShieldMutual.com/PiFS. The more members, the more ears for your mutual aid requests, the more people we can help.
