InfoBarrel for Charities

This article has been generously donated to InfoBarrel for Charities.
By Edited Nov 13, 2013 64 56

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?

Charities

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.

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.

Is it possible to contribute to a different chariy or can it only be to the one charity nominated by Infobarrel?

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.

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.

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.

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.
