If you haven’t joined the hottest online community for social change, now is a better time than ever. BetterTheWorld.com, a Web site/community that allows users to donate to nonprofits by surfing the Web, recently launched their Final 4 Contest where members can earn $4,000 for their choice charity and an extra $2,000 for their school.
For the Final 4 Contest, members are placed into groups with other users from the same school. The school groups are then ranked as its member collective earn points. Members can earn points by surfing the Web with the BetterTheWorld (BTW) sidebar open, inviting friends, broadcasting goals reached for charities, adding a Facebook badge and more.
Leading Schools and the Charities They Support
Sound easy enough? It is. I am a frequent user on BetterTheWorld’s site and since last Spring I have earned a significant 25,825 points and reached over 7 goals for charities (like providing 3 chickens for someone in need). I accomplished this simply by opening my BTW browser sidebar while at work and inviting my friends, family and coworkers.
So, tweet to your university buddies, Facebook your high school friends and call up anyone else interested in making the world a better place. And make sure to get to BetterTheWorld.com soon, because the Final 4 Contest is only going on now till the end of December!
