Since the initial launch of InfoBarrel it has been our intention to provide a means to raise money for different charities. Now that InfoBarrel is an established crowd sourced web site we feel that we are big enough that if we all band together we should be able to make an impact and generate substantial sums of money for charity.
How it Works?
At any time, you can contribute any of your articles to the current charity. Once you set an article to be charitable, 90% of the revenue will go to charity. 2% will go to whoever referred you and the remaining 8% will be used to for server expenses.
If you ever want to convert your article back from charitable status you can do so at any time through your 'My Content' page. Tracking Progress
Each charity that we will be working with will have its own InfoBarrel page. We will update this page at least once a week, keeping everybody up to date with exactly how much money we have raised for this charity.
Hopefully we can all work together and use the power of crowd sourcing to help people in need! Current Efforts
The charity InfoBarrel is currently supporting is the
Canadian Diabetes Association. Take a look at how we are doing at InfoBarrel for Charities - Canadian Diabetes Association. Past Efforts
In our first round of fund raising we focused on
the Huntington Society of Canada. In total we raised $2,574.96! Take a look at how we are did at InfoBarrel for Charities - Huntington Society of Canada. How to Get Started?

Mailing elderly homes and hospitals allowing their admin to know who needs a smile today. It could be poems, short stories or just positive energy all with the sole purpose to let someone who feels they are alone , that they are not. Many people could be touched I'd; inmates and sick kids hospital.
The magic of the pen can really help and comport someone all for the cost of a stamp.

Who knew that I could donate to charity through my writing! Not even my dog reads my articles!!
2011-09-02 2:29am PDT
Is it possible to contribute to a different chariy or can it only be to the one charity nominated by Infobarrel?
2011-10-22 9:19pm PDT
You can only allocate articles to the charity designated by IB from time to time. You can always donate your earnings that you receive yourself to any charity you like.

great idea here
2011-10-08 5:45pm PDT
I find this a very heart rendering thing for Info Barrel to do. I am ready to get my tenth article out, I think I should dedicate it to your charities as a land mark article.
2011-10-28 3:39pm PDT
I write a lot so being able to give back is something that I am going to do at least for every 5 articles that I write.
2011-11-16 11:12pm PST
Wow! This is a excellent idea and I will write my next article for charities, Thanks.
2011-12-04 1:02pm PST
Fantastic its great to be able to donate your time instead of your money. Love writing and helping others
2012-01-09 9:57pm PST
this rocks. seriously.
2012-01-16 2:35pm PST
Very cool idea!
2012-01-28 9:09pm PST
In the article, "A t" should be one word.
2012-02-07 3:59pm PST
Very cool idea to help others. I like the idea of convertibility of articles to charity status at any time.
2012-02-26 8:56am PST
Really Great idea to help needy persons....Really Impressive..!!!
2012-03-02 5:08pm PST
Nice feature, add Muscular Dystrophy as a charity please.
2012-08-06 9:04am PDT
I would love to put this on my website as another way for charities to fundraise. Can someone let me know if this would be a problem.
2012-08-09 4:28pm PDT
Nope no problem. Please promote it as much as you want.
2012-10-11 4:41pm PDT
Thank you for leading the way in generosity. It's easy to get caught up in our own wants and desires, and your example reminds me to give generously to others less fortunate than myself.
2013-01-15 8:35am PST
Perfect decision! Good job.
2013-02-18 7:45pm PST
My first time on this site,but I think this really an awsome idea.

Life is for living and giving. In giving love and consideration for all, it gives more satisfaction. Life is worth living when we spread cheers like theSun giving light and warmth for all in the whole world. Keep it up those who do this.
