    How to Raise Money for Charities

    Canada Goose Outlet A New Way to Support canada goose jacket uk CharitiesCharities are often canada goose outlet toronto location desperately seeking money to support their cause. Many people would like to help worthy charities but lack the funds, the time, or the energy to canada goose outlet in chicago do so. An innovative solution for these problems has been created. As long as people have access to the Internet whether it’s a paid service at home or a free canada goose jacket outlet uk service in a public library they can help certain charities by simply watching videos.

    buy canada goose jacket The new donation method is ideal for the digital age canada goose outlet uk sale in which we live. Compelling videos may attract both people who are looking for a way to help a charity and people who have no interest in doing so. In either case the charity will benefit. The process works because the videos are connected to canada goose outlet hong kong advertising in some way. The company hosting the video donates part of the money paid by the advertisers to a specific charity. In this article I’ll review two websites that use videos to raise money for charities. buy canada goose jacket

    canada goose coats on sale Cats vs CancerSome video sites that donate money to charity come and go, but Cats vs Cancer has been in existence for several years and seems to have staying power. The public can’t seem to get enough of cute cat videos, photos, and memes on the Internet. Cats canada goose outlet store montreal vs Cancer is capitalizing on this trend with the aim of helping people with cancer. The organization was created by two graduates from Georgetown University named Tom O’Connor and Eddie Pea. It’s an IRS certified non profit organization based in the United States. canada goose coats on sale

    canada goose clearance sale The Cats vs Cancer website has lots of cat videos. It also has cat photos with memes, which are wildly popular on social media at the moment, as well as cat GIFs. At the present time the site curates content instead of creating its own. canada goose clearance sale

    Canada Goose Jackets There are prominent share buttons on each canada goose outlet canada page of the Cats vs. Cancer website. There are also understandably advertisements. These are noticeable, but I don’t find them intrusive. Advertisers pay the organization for every page load. As a viewer explores the site and clicks on different videos or photos they’re continuing to raise money. The website enables people to make a direct donation to a charity if they prefer. According to canada goose jacket outlet sale a 2015 interview with Tom O’Connor by The Washington Post, Cats vs Cancer donates about 85% of its revenue to charity. Canada Goose Jackets

    uk canada goose The Future for Cats vs CancerCats vs Cancer has great hopes for the future. They want to become the go to website for people interested in cat media. The competition to attract cat lovers is stiff, however. uk canada goose

    Canada Goose online Many organizations start out with great enthusiasm and canada goose outlet winnipeg address have ambitious plans. Sometimes the enthusiasm fades as time passes and the plans fail canada goose outlet uk to materialize. Hopefully this won’t happen with Cats vs Cancer. I hope the website becomes very popular.

    The website originated in 2013 and is still in operation, which is a good sign. It’s an enjoyable site to visit, but it’s going to be a big job to make it more enticing than other cat media websites.

    Canada Goose Online The Goodeed WebsiteInstead of providing entertaining videos, Goodeed asks people to watch a video ad for at least twenty seconds in order to generate a donation. 70% of the advertiser’s money is then donated to a charity. The other 30% is used to keep the organization in canada goose outlet locations in toronto operation. The site was canada goose outlet location started in France by Vincent Touboul Flachaire, who was only nineteen at the time. The beta version of the program was started in 2014 and the international version in 2015. Canada Goose Online

    canada goose black friday sale Unlike Cats vs Cancer, the donation process at Goodeed is not anonymous. People need to sign up via email, Facebook, or Twitter in order to watch the ads. The organizers say that canada goose outlet vip this is necessary for three reasons: to ensure that visitors aren’t robots, to make sure that a person watches a maximum of three ads a day, and to tailor the ads for the visitor. The names of the latest donors (or at least their social media names) and their total number of donations are posted on the website, as well as a Follow button. The publicity may make some people feel uncomfortable, but on the other hand it could provide a sense of achievement and friendly competition. canada canada goose shop uk goose black friday sale

    canada goose clearance What Charities Are Supported? Goodeed supports NGOs, or non governmental, non profit organizations. On the organization’s home page, there are buttons for three types of charities: trees, meals, and water. The video above indicates that there is a vaccines button, but at least for now “water” has replaced “vaccines”. When I last visited the page there were also buttons for two special projects: weekend in Disney and meetings between residents and the homeless. The website has a Victories page that shows successful fundraising campaigns. canada goose clearance

    canada goose store The goal of the trees section is to raise money to plant trees in order to counteract deforestation. The aim is to help the environment and biodiversity and to support people’s livelihoods. The name of the organization that is supported is WeForest. canada goose store

    canada goose factory sale The goal of the water section is to provide safe, unpolluted drinking water to people around the world. The organization that supplies the water is called Solidarits International. canada goose canada goose black friday factory sale

    canadian goose jacket The Disney section provides a weekend in a Disney amusement park for a sick child and their parents. The organization that provides the trip is called Tout le monde contre le cancer. canadian goose jacket

    Canada Goose sale The meeting button supports a charity called Entourage. The organization wants to promote awareness and understanding of the homeless situation and to encourage people to help each other. Canada Goose sale

    canada goose uk shop Helping Others by Watching VideosDonating money or items to charities is very important. Doing traditional fundraising canada goose outlet washington dc and physical work to help people in need is also important. It seems to me that there canada goose outlet las vegas is another almost untapped method of helping others via the Internet, however. canada goose outlet store toronto canada goose uk shop

    Canada Goose Parka Access to the Internet is widespread, at least in some countries. Many people access the Internet multiple times during the day, sometimes for long periods at a time. Some people take quick “Internet breaks” during other activities. Internet videos could therefore be a wonderful source of aid for charities. Canada Goose Parka

    canada goose uk black friday Watching a cat video or checking out cat memes can be an enjoyable way to relax. It could also be a good method to help a charity with virtually no canada goose outlet in toronto effort on the part of the donor. In order for the media to be effective, however, it’s important that it’s so interesting that people would view it even if it didn’t help charities. Videos from advertisers may not be as interesting to watch canada goose outlet new york city as cat videos, but on the other hand, watching at least twenty seconds of each of three video ads a day is not very time consuming. canada goose uk black friday

    Frequent viewing of videos from a dedicated individual could slowly create a significant contribution to canada goose outlet website legit a charity. Increasing the number of consistent viewers could be even more helpful. It would be wonderful if a viral video was linked to fundraising.

    cheap Canada Goose The Helper’s HighI think it’s important that a charity video website attracts people on their first visit and regularly adds interesting content to maintain their visitors’ allegiance. Entertaining media or an indication of how much money has been raised by either an individual or in total may help to build a “helper’s high”. Researchers have found that this is a real phenomenon. When we help others, chemicals are released in our brain that make us feel good and encourage us to give more help. cheap Canada Goose

    canada goose buy canada goose uk coats Some people may not like the idea that our biology is playing a role in making us kind, but the important thing is that we help others. Even if this is done passively while looking at a computer screen, the effort could be very valuable. I hope the concept of supporting charities by watching videos spreads far and wide. canada goose coats
