Los Angeles, CA
I'm a social entrepreneur who has founded a for-profit, philanthopic startup.
Do you ever wish you could do more to help your favorite charities and the causes that you care about? There are many great non-profits out there doing amazing work, however, in this economic climate they are financially struggling.
The public does not have the income to make sizable donations. As a result, the traditional fundraising models used by non-profits such as walks, galas, and celebrity auctions are now less effective.
There’s not a lack of people who want to help, but rather a lack of ways for people to help that don’t require money. So I decided to take the money element completely out of donating.
We combine social gaming with the power of celebrity to allow the public to win amazing prize packages while generating money for their favorite charities -- without them having to donate from their own pocket!
