Besides, plenty of small charities and startups, even ones with enormous potential, remain in the shadows because they cannot be easily located. The webtool Move Commons (MC) aims to help these to reach critical mass in their fields, connecting them with contributors, and clustering similar initiatives. The mechanics are similar to how Creative Commons (CC) “labels” cultural works. In fact, MC builds on top of CC, as CC built on top of the GPL. In MC, initiatives can "label" themselves using keywords and icons representing the principles they are committed to. Initiatives generate their badges to embed them, and its icons answer several questions: Is this a nonprofit? Is it transparent? Can I use part of their contents for my blog? How are they organized internally? Badges include semantic code which allows search engine queries such as “initiatives in Springfield that are grassroots, non-profit, delivering CC content, and related to 'IT' and 'alternative education'?” (Think of your own topics, keywords and places). The idea is to let projects locate and collaborate with like-minded initiatives and to allow potential contributors to find easily small local initiatives. Move Commons just launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the project needs and attract collaborators. It uses the Goteo crowdfunding platform, which only aids free/libre projects that return to the Commons."
