It is rare to find a charitable organization where 100% of your donations is guaranteed to go to the charities. GiveMeaning.com appears to be one of those organizations.
Normally I am simply not a person who promotes this kind of thing… I guess I am just too busy and a bit suspicious of large charities. I am normally more interested in local charities like the Mustard Seed. This one, however, really inspires me and I felt it was important to share. Here are some recent projects that were completed thanks to the generosity of users:

What I find really different about this project is that if I wanted to I could create my own project to raise funds for a charity of my choice. Lets say, for example, I felt particularly interested in raising money for Multiple Sclerosis. I could simply create my own project and then GiveMeaning.com (after approving the project) would handle all of the logistics of handling the money, charity receipts, and making certain the funds got to the appropriate charity. So in a sense, GiveMeaning.com acts as a charity administrator thus allowing me to focus on the more important aspects of fundraising – promotion! But it doesn’t stop there! GiveMeaning.com even provides excellent tools to help you get the word out – all free of charge.
Check it out and tell me what you think… personally I think it is an awesome concept. Heh, probably one that has been around and I didn’t even know about it. Well call me enlightened now 😉
