Image by Alice Harold via FlickrBetter The World is a great platform of tools that allows anyone to raise money for charity just by surfing the internet. On these tools ads are shown; as an added bonus the ads are all from companies that have social responsibility programs, social products and services, have products of interest to BTW members, or are non-profits.
Members then pick a cause they care about and, since Better The World is a social enterprise, 90% of all the ad revenue we raise goes directly to the charities themselves (the other 10% is used to keep the lights on, pay the staff etc).
In the past few months BTW members have:
- Provided 2 nights of shelter for a person in need
- Paid to send a child to school for a year
- X-rayed a child with a broken arm
- Bought milk to feed an orphaned rhino for a month
- Provided counselling sessions to a woman escaping violence
- and more . . .
All you have to do is download the EZ Shopping Widget once - and then shop online as you normally do. Easy! You get to avoid the crowds in town, buy from your favourite online retailers - and give to charity at no extra cost to you!!
