Innovation is seldom quiet. We often think of it in grand terms — something high tech and groundbreaking, something larger than life and way out of our reach. That’s because we, as benefactors, often see the end result first.
But for those at the forefront of change, innovation trudges along; sometimes a lonely companion, even a heart-breaker at times. I’m glad and grateful that those who started this quest persevered and persisted. People like Sergio van Santvoort Vorst, who emerged from his arduous journey to establish the Bucket Line foundation.
The Bucket Line essentially makes it easier for those in need of caring to ask for help from loved ones and neighbours, and makes it more effective for the entire community to lend a helping hand.
The Bucket Line helps to co-ordinate the needs of the caregivers with those who are best able to help them in their tasks. Through this foundation, people who are in need of help with specific tasks are matched with those in their neighborhoods who are willing to lend a helping hand. – TEDx Amsterdam
The Bucket Line tries to ease the distress in helping, so we can focus more on caring.
A quiet innovation. But its impact can shake you to your core.

May your tribe increase, Sergio!
