You can fight poverty without spending a dime by asking for donations instead of gifts for your birthday. With just a few hours' effort, you could really change a person's life. It's perhaps one of the best outcomes you can achieve per hour. It's easy. All you have to do is:
- Click on "Create a fundraising page"
- Click next a whole bunch, or personalize your message, whichever you like.
- Post it on Facebook and email your friends. Just say that if they're going to give you a gift for your birthday, you'd like a donation to help fight poverty.
This is a great way to make the world a better place because your friends and family were going to give you something anyways, and often you don't really need any more stuff, but would rather get something a little more meaningful for your birthday. So sign up now and really make a difference.
Where does the money go? By default all donations go to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI for short), but you can also pick another of our proven charities (note that you cannot pick charities besides these). If you do, please specify your choice of charity in your page's text and contact us.
Other countries: This page uses Australian dollars. You can use our equivalent pages denominated in US dollars, Canadian dollars, and British pounds.
Are donations tax deductible? Unfortunately not, because none of our proven charities are tax deductible in Australia
