I like the idea. In fact, it’s monetising something I’m studying: this 2.0 world.
Can you share your experience with these charity services or similar? I’d love to get a seal of approval! (or ‘run away, quickly’)
Last year, I blogged about Earndit (‘earning’ for working out) but I left the service.
I didn’t like how Very, Very Little they donate. I understand: they’re a business first. ‘Earnings’ are usually discounts to buy products they’re advertising (third parties) and that’s fine. I was in it for the donations (since I don’t have a lot of money after buying all my tech; at least I’m honest). It wasn’t worth logging. I’m a busy lady (and I work out a lot compared to most Americans, anyway).
I may be busy, I love dedicating time to charity. There’s no better feeling than helping somebody. Giving money doesn’t come close. If you feel good donating, fantastic! You’ll feel even better seeing somebody warmed when it’s cold outside…where they live.
My .02: Doing (acts) feels better than donating (money).
I don’t know if these sites are on the up and up but I’d like to know more!
Since I live so remotely, there’s nothing here. I’m a member of the Order of the Eastern Star (a 60mi trip) and it’s so hard for them to get something organized, it’s only a couple of things a year (one is breakfast, where I’ll cook). Twice a year is better than nothing but this illustrates how hard it is to do anything here. Online examples (if legit) would be huge!
