PRLog - Feb. 4, 2013 - GEORGETOWN, Canada -- When it comes to charitable giving, can $1 really make an impact?

A Canadian non-profit start-up is betting that it can.  Launched in late 2012, Kutoa.org (http://www.kutoa.org) is a charitable giving program that allows members to pledge $1 per month for a vote in how the entire pot of money is used.

Each month Kutoa partners with a different registered charity who provides three projects based upon theme or geography. Once the three projects are picked, Kutoa hands the decision making over to its members.

To become a member, you pledge to give $1 per month - no more, no less. Through Kutoa’s “VOTE NOW” system, members decide where the money should go. At the end of the month, the project with the most votes gets all of the money raised during that month.

“By capping the monthly pledge to one dollar, we hope that we can make charitable giving accessible to a greater number of people,” says Josh Brake, executive director of Kutoa. “We want to empower our members to be active in the voting process, but also provide a platform for them to learn about the world around them.”

According to Brake, Kutoa is built on the belief that every person around the world is of equal value and has an equal voice. The goal is to foster an environment of awareness, increase generosity between people and fund organizations that do great work to help people.

Since launching in September 2012 Kutoa has already given funds to support: legal services concerning sex-trafficking in Cambodia (September 2012, through partner organization International Justice Mission); programs providing filling food for fair work in Rwanda (October 2012, through partner organization World Food Program); safe drinking water in a disaster zone (November 2012 through partner organization Global Medic); health education in Malawi (December 2012 through partner organization Save the Children).
