Welcome to Patch Life Utilities (PLUS). The idea is for us to help you explore in order to allow you to expand your experiences and only then truly discover who you are and where you stand after deep reflection. Register free today, button above, to start earning points, make activity posts on your profile after completing an activity from one of our activity lists, gain points & access to purchase custom apparel, subscribe & obtain local discount incentives, utilize the forum & community, and have other options! (Here's an update article on the current status of PLUS)
IN A NUTSHELL:
We help people discover their interests and who they want to be by helping them get exposure and try new things.
We made lists of activities for people to complete on their profile, where they earn points by making a post after completion. Points give users access to purchase custom apparel and have other incentives.
To help complete activities, annually subscribing members are given first time use, local business, discounts & coupons to try new activities; we also list other local resources, places, and groups for people to try, see, and explore with respect to the activities we've listed.
Lastly, we host fun events with respect to these activities at local small business venues to encourage people to be more active in the community and support their interests. Eventually, we hope to save enough for a community center for a single safe location to try all sorts of activities more affordably; to be used as a central hub for community involvement.
Our hope is to get people more engaged in the community in an ever isolating world of technology and become better citizens by becoming more open minded. We can only achieve this by experiencing different and new things.
The Concept of PLUS
Patch Life Utilities > PLUS for short
Motto: Your Earned Identity (As a Member of PLUS you are to accomplish activities and make posts that allow you to reflect upon your experiences towards developing and honing your own Identity)
Values: I-PLUS > Integrity, Poise, Loyalty, Understanding, Selflessness
Mission: Helping you discover your identity by trying new things.
Creed: To extract, equip, and encourage the community towards unified harmonious growth through the development of individual's identities, self-awareness, and understanding of themselves, those around them, and the "should be" focus of our civilization.
Mascot: Knight. Protecting the order of our cause and community. Upholding the core values of a good samaritan and setting a good example to follow.
Logo Metaphor: The logo is called the PLUS "Axis"; the concept of what revolves around your life. When you wear this logo, you resemble a person who knows who they are, a person who knows and is their own true identity. The idea is a growing person finding himself at the center; symbolizing a natural growing mechanism as a plant. Therefore the figures are divided into core stems and branching categories of roots (or "thorns"). Great beauty within comes great obstacles as a plant with roots.
The centerpiece of triangle and circle is the individual's identity in itself. The triangle and circle are the strongest shapes and foundations. Strength is necessary to ensure and sustain something so important as the identity of an individual's uniqueness. The colored-in triangle is a Root of Individual and the interior is the stem of Identity which is what everything around. It is all further broken into categorical roots and stems which reinforces and establishes.
Three other stems make up the core stem surrounding the triangle. Family and Spirit roots establish the stem Soul, Education and Community roots establish the stem Mind, and Health and Leisure roots establish the stem Body. The stems of Mind, Body, and Soul will virtually create and lead to one's main stem of Identity. And each Stem has their own Roots and sub-Roots which further categorizes what makes someone their own Identity.
