I just moved into the coolest new community, one where I can pool my charity dollars with like-minded neighbors who care about some of the same things I do: animal welfare, women's issues and education. And all it took to join was a promise to pledge at least one dollar a month. No moving trucks, no long-term leases and best of all, no packing or unpacking.
The premise behind Givelocity is that it doesn’t always take giving a ton of money to feel meaningful; sometimes a buck or two will suffice. And a little really can go a long way when it's combined with donations from new friends and neighbors.
Here’s how it works:
1.) Go to Givelocity and look for neighborhoods that support causes you care about.
2.) Move in and choose how much you want to pledge every month.
3.) Vote for causes with your neighbors.
Your combined neighborhood pledges go to the winning causes every month. Everyone gives. Everyone votes. Everyone is happy. The end.
