Day 292: Greenpeace
I was looking at the other organizations that Groupon was fundraising for and was thinking how I can incorporate in my daily giving, I noticed Groupon was giving $15 credits to anyone who donated to Greenpeace. So I thought, well I will use that $15 credit (when it comes in April) to pay it forward to another charity, makes sense to me.
Here’s how it works: Groupon is collecting donations from individuals to help Greenpeace save the whales. People can purchase a $15 Groupon to save the whales and when they do, Groupon matches that by giving the person $15 in Groupon credit. Once I get the $15 credit, I’m going to use it to donate to another charity on Groupon.
Greenpeace wages a constant campaign of peaceful protest and communication to expose a global audience to environmental injustice and to find solutions for a safer future. Volunteers use non-violent confrontation to inspire informed public debate on topics such as global warming, deforestation, and toxic pollution.
Amount Donated: $15
