There are charitable organizations that have been around for as long as one can remember. Though I have nothing against these organization – they serve their purpose and they have changed the lives of countless people – I do have this tendency to go for the more radical and innovative organizations. And mind you, there is no lack of these in these days.
Take Fund It Frog, for example. Just by looking at the name, you can already see how this is probably not your run-of-the-mill charitable organization. As a matter of fact, Fund It Frog started as an application for the ubiquitous Facebook in April of 2008. In October, it expanded its operations and now extends its reach to the rest of the Web. What is Fund It Frog all about? Creator Geoff Hughes explains:
Fund it Frog is a dead simple way to raise money for charity every time you shop online – without costing you a bean. You can set up your own Fund for the cause you are passionate about, then set about gathering up even your most reluctant friends by offering them a way to support you without it costing them time or money. Using discounts and voucher codes, they can even save themselves money along the way.
Having invited your friends to join your favourite Fund, you can keep an eye on each other’s fundraising progress. There is a useful list of every item you have bought. Fund it Frog is functional and funky.
You can visit their web site here for more information and to get started. Have fun while helping others out!
