Earned $10 (at least!) and Donated to Charity – All at a Discount!

There are obviously many ways to give, but to make it easy, I donate through Swagbucks by purchasing donations using my SB’s.  Swagbucks has many options to donate: UNICEF, the Wounded Warrior Project, Charity Choice, clean water, air, etc.  I choose to donate to Treecycler and to make impact actions using KarmaKarma.  Treecycler sponsors forestry projects around the globe and KarmaKarma aggregates different charitable actions World wide.

Basically, each $10 I earn, I purchase $1.00 worth of charity.

Today I bought $10 worth of credit at restaurant.com, planted a mangrove tree in Madagascar, and bought 1000 points on KarmaKarma with which I will eventually provide supplies to a homeless veteran (you need 30,000 points to do so through KarmaKarma).

Are you ready for the best part?  Since Swagbucks is having a sale, the $10 worth of value actually cost only 175 SB’s (i.e. $1.75) and while 1000 KK points usually cost $1.00, today they cost $0.85.  Treecycler trees always cost $0.99.  So I was able to get $10 of value and donate to charity for a total cost of only $3.59!
