A New Way To Give Back

We have found a really neat way to giveback and donate to deserving charities and we wanted to share it with all of our readers.  Maybe you're someone whose New Years Resolution was to give more to charity? If so, then this is for you. Dollar Per Month™ is a social giving site that you can impact the bottom line of charities by giving just $1 per month.    

This month, Dollar Per Month™ (DPM™) has announced it’s three charity partnerships for January 2013. The online non-profit fundraising site raises money for different charity partners every month, by having members donate as little as a dollar per month to their selected organizations. Proceeds from January membership donations will go to Generation Rescue, Giving ChildrenHope, and Kids in Need Foundation.   One of the founders of DPM, is Doug Clerget. You may recognize him from Emily Maynards season of The Bachelorette. At Binsi, we love Doug! Send him a tweet to @DougClerget.

Our favorite of the three charities listed in January is Generation Rescue.  They are the leading national organization that provides hope, information and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders.  Jenny McCarthy is one of their biggest supporters, “I remember the day Evan was diagnosed with autism like it was yesterday. The doctor told me there was no hope or help for him. Thankfully I found Generation Rescue and was inspired by the parents before me to find a different answer” says McCarthy.  You can even enter to win one of her novels by CLICKING HERE.

Doug Clerget, co-founder of DPM™ says that "DollarPerMonth.org is a unique way to give to charity because it handpicks deserving charities monthly and quickly and conveniently presents them to our members, who often have busy lifestyles. More importantly, our members are exposed to new and important charity organizations they may not have been aware of previously.”

Each month, DPM™ selects three charities for their members to vote on. DPM™ then posts information about the charities to help members evaluate each and make their decision of which organization should receive their monthly donation. DPM™ has already carefully investigated and evaluated all three charities to ensure the charities are reputable, legitimate, making a positive impact on the world and that the vast majority of donations will go directly to the cause. After reviewing the charities, members vote for their favorite charity. The winning charity receives 50% of the community donations, the 2nd charity receives 30%, and the 3rd charity receives 20% – no charity loses!
