Prizeo is a fundraising site that uses the power of celebrity to encourage individuals to support organizations and win cool awards.
Prizeo is a fundraising platform that gives every donor the chance to win cool prizes. There are several celebrities that work with the campaigns hosted on Prizeo, and each celebrity personality creates a unique “experience” to be awarded to one supporter of their chosen cause. Examples of prizes awarded to supporters of current campaigns include winning the chance to attend a photo shoot with Paris Hilton, as well as winning the chance to play soccer with Steve Nash. The site works with actors and actresses, musicians, athletes and other celebrities in order to ensure that there’s an enticing prize for anyone looking to donate through the platform. The celebrities are used as a tool to get people to support various causes — which of course are the real reason behind the creation of the site. Each celebrity also creates a short video detailing his or her association with a particular charity. Paris Hilton’s campaign, for instance, supports the American Humane Association while Steve Nash’s supports his own Steve Nash Foundation.
Each Prizeo campaign also has a profile that details all of the corresponding prizes based on how many times you submit an entry and how much you donate to a particular cause. Similar to fundraising platforms such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo, donors are awarded anything from a thank you note to the grand prize of doing something with a celebrity. Also similar to those crowdfunding platforms, each campaign has a certain time limit in which donors can make their contributions before a winner is announced. There’s also additional information about each charity hosted on the profile, and you can increase your odds of winning awards by sharing the cause with your friends across social media. New campaigns and contests are constantly being added with high profile celebrities and important causes and organizations. The site is intelligent in that it understands how the power of celebrity influence can be used for positive social change. There’s even a chance to meet Paul McCartney by donating to a current campaign. No matter your incentive in donating, the site does offer a convenient and rewarding way to do so.
