1% For the Planet

Posted on the 30 August 2011 by Mregina @justfundraising

1% for the planet Charity Occasionally when I’m researching new and interesting fundraising/ charity ideas to post on this blog I run into something that really stands out. Today is just that day.

The only problem is that I may need you to help educate me on it!

The theory goes like this: Imagine having a network of companies banded together to help environmental issues. These companies donate 1% of their annual revenue towards green causes. 1%fortheplanet did just that.

I was so intrigued to find out more about this concept I went to check out their website. I put the link in for their web page but I received a lot of browser crashes which ground me to a complete halt. I wasn’t able to look into what they offered or how much it costs to be a member. If anybody can shed some light on this drop a comment I’d love to know.

I have been able to check out their blog and facebook page and was intrigued at what I saw. Their extremely busy and the businesses looking to be a part of this are lining up to sign up!

Check out the video which sums 1% up:

If anybody can find 1%for the planets quick guide pdf let me know that would be cool to go through.

Please check out their site because despite the technical issues I’ve had, I have learned that this is an incredible idea worth sharing.  Drop a comment if you can add anything to help us out.
