Philanthroper – The concept of Philanthroper resembles the one of Groupon, only in the non-profit arena. In the FAQ section Philanthroper explains: “You know those daily deal sites? We’re another one of those. But instead of selling something, we’re sharing the story of a new 501(c)3 nonprofit every day. And if you’d like, you can give them $1. We’re trying to make doing good a habit.”
Philanthroper.com is beautifully designed and uses large high resolution photos to make an impact, and rightly so. Some of the ‘recent deals’ include Reef Check and The People’s Music School, although last Sunday’s deal for Canine Assistants touched me the most – see the image below. Users taking part in Philanthroper’s deals make only $1 donations so the commitment is minimal, but the help is immense. Great website.
