As part of our Charity Program, this month we have two new charities to help you give back to your community. With our monthly Charity Program, all members are encouraged to donate funds to charity without spending any money whatsoever.
Members are able to donate a few of their Listia Credits to any one of our monthly charities. While members donate their Credits, Listia matches those credits with real money which is then donated once the month is complete. Over the years Listia members have raised more than $50,000 USD for a wide variety of charities around the world!
The two charities for May are:
Listia and Gridmates are on a joint mission to Improve People’s Lives. In the US there are 48 million people who cannot afford to cool or heat their homes, cook for their children or even have light during the night. You have now the power to Energize People’s Lives. By providing the gifts of energy, Gridmates will help power 7 Learning Centers, an initiative of Foundation Communities that provides after school activities for children of low income families in Texas.
Foundation Communities operate 7 Community Learning Centers that are home to free after-school programs for 700 children. By contributing to this campaign, you’ll be helping us keep the PCs, lights and heating/cooling on. We need your support to keep the knowledge going and help children chase their dreams!
Be part of this great cause! You have the power to Empower Students to Dream Big. Click here to learn more or donate today.
