What if people could donate to charity without having to lose a penny of their own?
In this day in age people are holding onto their money more than they have done in the past few decades and so (like everyone else) charities are finding it harder to convince us to hand over our money. My Idea takes this situation that we are all in and turns it into a win win for everybody.
We have survey websites out there that say they will give us money for a few minutes of our time to fill out a form, some will give us money and some won’t. Most people believe that it sounds too good to be true and so never try it, you can't really blame them. But what if there is a survey website that tells you that you’re not going to get any money and instead it's going to go to charity? Will you be more inclined to fill out a form knowing that the financial incentive has been replaced with a feel good one instead and therefore probably not going to be a scam?
Companies would first pay the website to host the marketing forms; users fill out the forms and earn a number of points depending on the type of form. The user would then allocate the points to the charities they feel strongly for and the money from the companies would then get divided up to the various charities based on how many points they have received from users. A leader board and a list of achievements would encourage competition among users and provide growth.
To recap, Businesses get more accurate research from larger numbers filling out forms, charities get more money and people get to donate without losing a penny of their own.
