Today’s prevalence of socially-conscious companies makes it really easy to give back. By using a one-for-one business model, a needed item is given away for each item purchased, allowing you to help those in need with the everyday things you buy. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’re checking back in with a company that makes that model even more impactful by making education accessible to those in need: LearningOnline.xyz.

LearningOnline.xyz creates online learning solutions that have a strong social mission. Drawing from the “when you teach a man to fish” mindset, the company knows that education is the ticket to help people move out of poverty in the long term. For every learning solution a customer buys from LearningOnline.xyz, courses are donated to those in need through a non-profit organization partner.

When we last featured LearningOnline.xyz, we told you about their courses focused on learning languages with language testing platforms, Test Your Language and Lingo Tube, where students can learn Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Arabic, and English.

Since then, they have added two new ways to learn. Cudoo is a comprehensive and practical lifestyle platform, where students can brush up on things like bookkeeping, computer skills, and get management tips. They have also launched international cooking platform, Cookingtube.xyz, where aspiring chefs and home cooks can learn recipes from the world’s best online chefs, organized by region and cuisine. Now, almost anyone has a reason to use LearningOnline.xyz.

Head to LearningOnline.xyz to find a course that’s right for you, and stay up-to-date with all the good they are doing by following them on Instagram, @learningonline.xyz, and Twitter, @learningonlinexyz. Do you have an idea to help others? Share it by setting up your own .xyz domain.

Quami.xyzGoDaddy customer (United States)

From chart-topping superstars to open-mic regulars, all artists and musicians know the importance of their online presence. The internet is one of their most important tools to promote their work, and building a fanbase means that fans need to be able to find and follow them online. This week’s #WebsiteWednesday features an artist who takes that principle to heart by seamlessly integrating his stage with his domain name, making them one and the same: Quami.xyz.

Quami.xyz is a Toronto-based musical artist who’s pushing the boundaries of R&B with his grandiose melodies and tight stream of consciousness narrative. Compared to the likes of Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar by fans, online music publication Pilerats writes that he is “both something different but easily accessible, straddling that fine line between left-field and commercial that’s particularly hard to nail.”

Quami.xyz released his debut album, Et Cetera, last August, garnering rave reviews for first single and video, “Clementine”. Listened to over 250k times on Spotify alone, Earmilk says he “croons his *** **** heart out” in the song and “the visual component only furthers the notion that he is an artist, an artist that you need on your radar”. Our favorite from the album? Xyz (the anthem).

Head to Quami.xyz to watch the full “Clementine” music video, and stream Et Cetera now on Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud. To follow Quami.xyz for his latest news and upcoming tour dates, find him on Instagram @quami.xyz and Twitter @quamixyz.
