This is fast, easy, generous and FREE! Everywun is a new company (December 2008) that connects Social Media users and giving to make the world a better place. Their unique format allows on-line users to click on (and share) badges from any site that supports the badge including facebook. According to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle, “Each subsequent click on the badge by friends and visitors generates income from a corporate sponsor that has contracted with Everywun in an effort to support that charity.” That’s it!
My badge is already on my facebook page. Click the badge link on facebook for sponsoring corporations to donate to charity. You can get your own badge too and choose what cause to suport.
According to the San Francisco Shronicle, “There are a few sites that allow users to donate to a charity or cause without spending money. In addition to Everywun, at www.everywun.com, these include the Hunger Site at http://www.thehungersite.com, which was created to eradicate world hunger and uses clicks to generate revenue for charities, and FreeRice, at www.freerice.com, which donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program for every vocabulary question answered correctly.”
Fascinating how social media can not only connect people, but can also be a force for change, good and positive contribution to the world. Very cool.
