Today's challenge is to create a Socialvibe account. Socialvibe allows ordinary people help charities every day at no cost to them. You only spend a few minutes every once and awhile, and it helps raise money for you favorite causes!
How does it work?
Advertisers pay Socialvibe for every view they get. If you make a socialvibe account, you get the code for a widget to put on a site or blog. You can also play activities created by companies that are trying to advertise their products. The companies donate money to Socialvibe in return.
How do they choose what charities?
Here's where we can have a big impact! Socialvibe gains a large sum of money from advertisers like MTV, Sprint, etc. When you sign up for Socialvibe, you choose what charity you would like to benefit. There are a ton of choices to pick from! Then, you play the activities created by the sponsors and earn points. You also earn points from pageviews from the badge on your site and doing other simple activities like posting in the forum, answering the question of the day, and logging on. The more points you gain for a certain charity, the more they receive from Socialvibe! You and I get to choose which charities receive the largest percentage of the funds, and it's really easy to do!
With my Socialvibe account, I chose to benefit Children's Miracle Network, an amazing charity that provides medical care, research, and education to help millions of children regardless of whether or not their parents are able to pay. So far, I've earned 3,790 points. Not too bad! :)
