Conscious Fundraising Meets Online Shopping - FlipGive

The effectiveness of charities or fundraisers are questionable. How are the donations being used? What exact percentage is going directly to those in need and how effective are the results? I have recently discovered a fundraising platform that can not only give you these answers, but also include you in a way that doesn't actually affect you giving away money that you need to sustain yourself.

You have to shop right? And sometimes as conscious beings we want to make sure we are shopping and supporting our economic system positively. FlipGive has come up with a unique way for you to shop and give back to the community without extra spending! How? When you use FlipGive's platform to shop your favorite brands, the retailers involved will donate up to 50% of the profits to the fundraiser of your choice! And I'm not talking about Cancer Foundation or other questionable charities that don't actually produce effective results and have been exposed to actually keeping most of the profits for themselves, but instead local community funding for local teams, clubs or organizations that will improve your community first hand. FlipGive has funded many fundraising events and has proven to be effective.

How many of us feel guilty at times about purchasing clothes that may have come from businesses with questionable practices? Or how many of us stop to buy a cup of coffee when meeting up with friends?! If you knew that each time you purchased goods you could direct some of that money - up to 50%- to a community fundraiser, would you?

Check out their website and start shopping in a way that will bring positive social change and help our communities. You literally have nothing to lose and lots to gain! Show the world how awesome and conscious you are about the world and economic system. Show your community that you care to support after school programs that have been cancelled by those who were unable to come up with any resolutions within their budget. You can create your own fundraiser or fund an existing one. This platform is the answer to getting back our community programs and community centers that have been shut down by the city or to fund your kid's hockey team so he/she can grow up healthy and active and involved in community events! As a retailer, you can also help bring about this positive change.

"Don't underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems. " - Leroy Hood
