Causer Testimonial: Changing The World In Your Free Time

“It’s straightforward and effortless.  It’s even more straightforward than texting [donations]. There’s also the bottom line that I’m not personally donating the money to the cause, but I’m just using my free time at whatever location I am at and that the underwriters, Citi and Kraft Foods, are stepping in and leading the charge.”

– Holt Murray on how CW differs from other ways of giving

Feeling Groovy

“Oh it’s great! I spread the word to people around me as I’m doing it and try to tell them what I’m doing. When I donate the karmas I try and let people know ‘hey, I just helped plant a tree in the rainforest”.
