Giveness - Social Web for Philanthropists Giveness - Social Web for Philanthropists

If you do online shopping, then without spending another penny, you can donate a percentage of your spendings to a charity. Confused? Usually, the affiliate marketers and publishers get a percentage for every referral they make to such online stores. Giveness springs from the same concept but they help to direct such commissions (affiliate sales) to charity programs.

Giveness is a social network for philanthropists who love shopping. When you buy something from online stores such as Amazon or eBay, via Giveness, they donate a percentage of their earnings to a charity of your  choice directly.

Giveness lists a big basket of about 134 online charities ranging from Children of Rural Africa to Sustainable Harvest International. When you sign up to Giveness, you can choose your favourite charities, before you do shopping. When the online stores send the commissions, all 100% of the money is sent to the charities. Now, you would have had a double joy as your shopping has not only fulfilled your need, but also some percentage of your spendings went to fulfill some higher cause.

Apart from this, Giveness is all about social networking, you will find people who are interested in common things. You can have a personal page, share things, chat or message friends. They should be good souls as they believe they can make a positive difference in this world by doing a small bit for the world.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell a thing. You can also start a charity fund. You can define a purpose – it could be a global problem or it could be even a neighbourhood’s issue. You can organize a charity and start your social service.
