wheek.it is a free link shortening service much like Bit.ly, but there's a special twist: wheek.it enables its users to raise money for guinea pig rescues (http://wheek.it)
Like most popular link shortening services, wheek.it allows you to shrink links, track analytics, and share your tiny link creations on websites like Twitter or Facebook.
How It Works
Brand-name online retailers like Macys.com, Amazon, and Ebay.com have agreed to donate a portion of sales generated through wheek.it short links that point to their website.
For example: You find a preeminent piece of product perfection while browsing the web. It could be your favorite album, a nifty iPhone case, or a warm, cozy scarf. You notice that the item of your delectable desire is on Amazon.com - one of wheek.it's participating shops. So you take the long, unsightly URL that points to the product on the retailer's website and you shorten it with wheek.it. wheek.it (http://wheek.it) adds a special code to your shortlink. The code tracks every purchase that is made through the wheek.it link and a portion of the revenue is given back to wheek.it, who in turn donate 100% of proceeds to a guinea pig rescue featured on their website.
Sharing your short links is the most important step to earning money for rescues. You shouldn't purchase products or services from your own wheek.it shortlinks, but you can post your short links on websites like Facebook and Twitter. Allow your friends to follow your recommendations and purchase your favorite products - all while helping guinea pigs in need.
