New startup turns small Good Deeds into Big Money for charity
“A million dollars isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? A million Good Deeds.”
Every Good Deed posted on the EthcialMuch.com platform earns £5 for charity. And tech companies are making it happen.
Business members of EthicalMuch are sponsoring Good Deeds, and individual members are doing them, posting them on the site, and choosing which charities to benefit.
Business members already include food tech company Winnow Solutions and Leeds based tech company Equiniti Credit Services, who sponsored 75 Good Deeds.
Individual Members do good deeds, post them on the platform, and choose a charity to receive £5 for each one. In the few weeks since launch more than a dozen different charities have already received donations this way, including Oxfam, Mind, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, and more.
Founder Bird Lovegod says “EthicalMuch members can also post their good news and positive ideas, and business members can do the same. It’s a space for intelligent and ethical news and opinions. It’s a truly social media.”
“It’s also a way for everyone to raise funds for charity simply by doing small acts of kindness and good deeds. Everyone on Ethical Much becomes a charity fundraiser. It’s a way to transform society. And doing Good Deeds makes you feel good.”
“Literally, you can walk in the park, pick up litter, and raise money for environmental charities as you go. You can buy a homeless person a cup of tea, and choose a charity to receive £5. EthicalMuch enables everyone to do good, and turn those good deeds into significant money for charity. Members doing the Good Deeds are also rewarded with mystery prizes, discount vouchers, and goodies. Everyone wins. Our big vision is a million Good Deeds on the platform and £5million to charity as a result.”
