Generosity by Indiegogo

Generosity, launched by Indiegogo, is a fundraising community built for personal and social causes.

We built Generosity to give Indiegogo users a new community for showing and sharing their compassion through personal fundraising. Generosity helps cancer patients with bills and students with tuition. Generosity boosts humanitarian efforts into new countries and helps nonprofits move quickly with their causes. Generosity fills the gap at the end of a tough month and supports the village after the storm.
Generosity is human goodness on a grand scale.   
All you need is love Generosity.

Do Good by Doing Nothing. There’s an app for that.

Do Nothing. Do Good. is an app created by &Barr that tracks the time you spend off of your phone and converts it into volunteer hours.

The app is as simple as it’s name implies. Simply press one button to start the timer and the timer will keep track of the time you spend not touching or moving your phone. The total time you spend away from the phone gets translated into volunteer hours  in which members of the agency will contribute to various causes in the future.

Here it is in their own words:

Time is a scarce resource. And these days we all spend way too much of it with our noses buried in a phone. Even when we’re with family, friends, driving our cars – that darn phone is in our hands and in our faces. So we’ve created an app that encourages you to take occasional breaks from your phone on a daily basis. And as a reward for the time you spend doing nothing on your phone, we’ll go out in the world and do good on your behalf. The more breaks you take, the more good we do. You &Barr, doing good for the community. And ourselves.

And if you’re not quite sure what to do with all that new found free time you will soon have they even give you a list of things you can do from twiddling your thumbs and shaking what your mama gave you to hanging out with friends and going on a bike ride.

This is definitely my kind of app and my kind of to do list as well. In fact I’m twiddling my thumbs right now and you sure as heck best believe I’ll be following that with shaking what my mama gave me.

Do Nothing. Do Good.

First World Problem Store.

First World Problem Store is an online store that helps you treat your first world problems in order to raise funds for aids.

Here’s a description from the website:

“Everyone has luxury problems from time to time, and that’s great! A luxury problem has never been this valuable! Profits of First World Problem Pills will be used by Aids Fonds to provide everyone with access to HIV medication. So your personal problem is in fact helping solve a much bigger problem. Buying First World Problem Pills doesn’t make you a diva, but a hero!

First World Problem Pills are 100% peppermint and solve all your everyday dilemmas. They are also 100% placebo and 100% of the profit goes to Aids Fonds’ aim to provide HIV medication to people who can’t afford it. Medication for medication that is.

Nearly 22 million people worldwide don’t have access to HIV medication. Which results in many people still unnecessarily dying from the results of AIDS. Nobody should die of AIDS because of lack of medication. The profits of these First World Problem Pills will be used by Aids Fonds to provide people with access to HIV medication. These are medicine for medicine. Which means that our luxury problems can help solve a much bigger problem.”

Kingii: The New Standard in Water Safety

The Kingii is a wearable flotation device. The device was invented by Tom Agapiades who lost a good friend to drowning. He didn’t want it to happen to anyone else so the experience inspired him to develop a solution against drowning, one of the leading causes of death.

You can help support the Kingii here.
