Buy1GIVE1 at the Global Giving VillageNing Network Spotlight
The Global Giving Village is a Ning Network where members connect with the common purpose of making a difference. Partnering with Buy1GIVE1, the Global Giving Village works with businesses to automatically make a specific contribution to a good cause with every single transaction. With an effective text box on the Main Page, the Global Giving Village links to some of its 700 worthy causes, like health support for a child in Peru.
Started in Australia and Singapore, B1G1 has since become a global phenomenon. A recent blog post links to an interview with Kaila Colbin about B1G1. And on the forum, Paul Dunn talks about the great results B1G1 efforts have yielded so far.
