Today I want to highlight a site that was brought to my attention, Better The World.
The recently launched site Better The World provides an opportunity for everyone to help others in need. By joining at Better The World, you can immediately start raising money by:
1. Choosing a charity you are passionate about.
2. Downloading a sidebar and Google-powered search toolbar.
3. Surfing the Internet as usual.
How it works is simple — when you are surfing the internet you are already seeing ads that corporations are paying for you to see. By joining Better The World and downloading its tools, you still see ads, but now 90% of the revenue from the Better The World ads goes to a charity you pick. And, as an added bonus these ads are all from companies that have social responsibility programs, social products and services, have products of interest to our members, or are non-profits.
So, for those of you interested in bettering the world, whether you are someone who already contributes but wants to do more, or you just can’t afford to donate to a cause quite yet, Better The World offers an opportunity to help the charity of your choice. It’s a simple, but highly effective way, of combining the power of the Internet and your desire to help make the world a better place.
Members can choose to support leading global and local charities, including Habitat for Humanity, TakingITGlobal, Children’s Miracle Network, United Way Toronto, CANFAR, SickKids Foundation, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, and Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. Better The World is a for-profit social venture that is based in Toronto and is privately owned and operated in Canada and the U.S.
I urge you to stop by Better The World today and see what you can do to help out!
