Hi everyone, everyday I go on this website and I thought I would share it here on ATS. I don't know if any of you are familiar with it but you click the buttons daily and it will give a certain amount to charity. It doesn't cost anything and only takes about 30 seconds a day to complete. There is six tabs at the top relating to different charities, click on each one and it will donate. Hopefully by sharing it here we can raise the daily amounts by a least a few hundred. Every click will make a difference and we can all help change the world for the better

Please don't stone me if I am wrong but could someone take a look at the following link and correct me if my thinking is wrong? I don't know how charities work in the US. And before bullets fly my way I give to charity regularly and fully know the critical work they support globally.

Charity Register

My understanding is the charities get just 15% of contributions? (something is better than nothing I know but..). Sadly it looks like someone is making quite a bit of money out of others good nature, or it at least looks like it. Sorry for turning over the stone, if I am right


They are not a charity but a commercial fund raiser, to be fair they don't even need to report their numbers.

Yep looks like you are right, my bad.


Despite it's only 15% I will still continue to click daily, every little helps.

Its a shame as this kind of thing REALLY upsets me which is why I always make a habit of checking out who I am really helping in a bit of detail. People that do this well, I will be nice and say nothing...
If you believe in karma I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that lot..

Goes on far to often, now if they gave 85% of the contributions how many more full bellies would there be. Won't do the math as it would break my heart.

Thanks for looking into it, it is a shockingly low amount.

Do you know of any that give most of it to charity? I have been looking but cannot seem to find any. Any links would be most helpful

If you use the charity search in the link it will list all charities in the state registered. Most seem to donate 80%+ not sure if they have such a site but maybe you could advise them on setting something up similar as it seems to work.

Also that "charity" donates to one organisation and at a glance it looked like themselves so its even worse (they own the domain? name or use a similar one in their list). Although I didn't confirm it as I saw all I needed. In the UK they wouldn't get away with that at all, its very misleading so don't feel bad

My understanding, from the site Bunker or Bust provided, is that the amount of money you virtually produce by clicking on the charity button goes 100% to charity.


With each daily click on our network of websites, visitors are shown sponsor advertising. We give one hundred percent (100%) of the collected advertising fees from sponsor advertising to charity through the non-profit, tax-exempt organization GreaterGood.org. No fees are taken out of the charitable payments for administrative costs.


Same goes for donations:


Direct Donations: Supporters can also contribute directly to charity by purchasing Gifts That Give More through our store. These direct donations contribute 100% of the amount paid by donors to specific charitable programs throughout the world. Again, no fees are taken out of the charitable payments for administrative costs.


Only from goods sold on the site, the profit doesn't go 100% for charity:


Shopping: Supporters can also contribute to charity by purchasing products from our store, including jewelry, apparel and gifts. We pay our charity partners 3-30% of the purchase price of every item sold in our store.


So on average, of all the profits made by the site, advertising, donations, sells, 15% goes to charity. But 100% of your "clicking donation".

Here's one that actually gives 100%.

All the work is performed by volunteers who donate their time.
