Sure, million dollar projects on Kickstarter occupy most of the discussion when it comes to crowd funding, but I think we’ve just barely scratched the surface on what we can accomplish as a population.
One Today aims to simplify the process of pairing nonprofit organizations with people who wish to contribute. A new project is highlighted every day, and users can decide whether they wish to contribute.
As you may have gleaned, requested contributions are typically very low dollar amounts–often only a dollar. The idea being, small painless transactions from a large number of people can quickly build a significant amount of capital. To that end, just as you might easily share a picture on social networking, One Today provides participants with easy tools to help spread the word on causes they care about.
