Here to Help

Map of Needs allows people to find people to do things for them, anywhere in the world. Other people in the right places can see what needs to be done and can offer to help. Map of Needs connects these people together and builds a community of reliable, trustworthy requestors and helpers.

  • You might need that special item from that faraway market place purchased and sent back to you.
  • You might need someone to take some pictures of family archives in that old village church on the other side of the world.
  • You might need someone to surprise aunt Mavis with a special food parcel.
No matter what, no matter where, Map of Needs aims to put you in touch with people that can help.




The Background

Map of Needs is owned by and operated as a division of the New Zealand based Company, TechcoNZ Ltd. The founding Directors of TechcoNZ Ltd and Map of Needs are Brendan and Emily Lester.

Brendan had a personal need for something like Map of Needs a while back when he needed to get in touch with a client in Holland. Their email address was no longer working but he did have their physical address - though who sends letters these days?

A look on Google maps showed him there was an automotive service station across the road. Cheekily, he emailed them asking them to print it out and put in the persons letter box - job done!

But it got him thinking - what if he needed something done in a certain place but didn't know anyone there. Sure there was plenty of service sites where you don't care where things are done, but nothing in the targeted location market.

Long story short, Map of Needs now exists.

So now you too can use Map of Needs to get something done, anything done, elsewhere in the world by people willing and able to help.
