If You Do Anything, You Can Probably Dedicate it to Charity

Published by pratyushkp on June 25th, 2011 - in Social, Technology

If you’re going to be participating in any kind of event, Causes.com has made sure that you can donate it to charity. Causes, the massive charitable giving site that got its start on Facebook, has relaunched its Wishes section.

People are getting used to the idea of “donating” their birthdays to charity, foregoing presents and asking friends to give to a designated charity instead. Heck, even Mashable‘s found Pete Cashmore did it to build a well in Ethopia. Wishes expands that idea to let users donate birthdays, weddings, holidays, memorials, runs or any other personal moments.

The concept is similar to basically setting up a fundraising page around an event but Wishes does manage to simplify the process. The page is clearly geared towards more casual users who may not be philanthropic activists but wish to do some good instead of getting another mess of gifts. So far Wish users have donated more than $11 million dollars just through birthdays and holidays.

What do you think about tailoring to more casual users? Is Wishes on the right track? Let us know in the comments below.
