This new model of crowdfunding allows users who are, for example, skilled accountants, yoga instructors, musicians or designers to sell their talents to another user on the online marketplace. Once purchased, all net proceeds go directly to their charity of choice.
As of today, over 100 nonprofit organizations and celebrity foundations have already signed up and users have submitted offers close to $100,000 within two weeks after launch. Services span from travel advice, computer support, yoga lessons, model shoots, and cooking classes. Charities benefiting from the new platform vary from organizations such as, Friends of the Orphans, Physicians for Peace, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, and Artists for Trauma.
