Social media platform fundraises through good deeds
04 Jun 2019by Chloe Green
Social media platform Ethical Much
is encouraging individual, business, and charitable good deeds across the UK through a unique online fundraising model.
Members of the platform can post Good Deeds
that they've carried out, nominating a charity to recieve a £5 donation for each deed. In return they recieve a mystery prize - from cash to free gifts, vouchers, and real or digital goods.
Individual members who do Good Deeds post on the platform and can choose from dozens of charities to nominate. Charity members already include Oxfam
and Sheffield Children’s Hospital
EthicalMuch Founder Bird Lovegod said: “EthicalMuch members can also post their good news and positive ideas, and business members can do the same. It’s a space for intelligent and ethical news and opinions. It’s a truly social media.”
“Literally, you can walk in the park, pick up litter, and raise money for environmental charities as you go. You can buy a homeless person a cup of tea and choose a charity to receive £5. EthicalMuch enables everyone to do good and turn those good deeds into significant money for charity. Members doing the Good Deeds are also rewarded with mystery prizes, discount vouchers, and goodies. Everyone wins. Our big vision is a million Good Deeds on the platform and £5million to charity as a result.”
In addition to raising money for charities, EthicalMuch also sponsors children for £25 per month
. Sponsorship donations help the Christian Charity CompassionUK
identify need children and families through local churches.
