This is a new scheme. All visitors to PoC need to do to make money for cat charities is visit the site and write a comment – nothing else. PoC does the rest by donating money earned from advertising.
PoC has a history of giving to cat charities. I would like to build on this. You can see the donations made so far by clicking on this link: PoC Donations.
For every comment made by a visitor, PoC the website will give 5 cents to charity. The visitor visits and comments. PoC gives money to charity. It is a shared process. The idea is to encourage people to visit PoC which allows PoC to make more advertising money. Some of the money earned can be given away by PoC to cat charities. Should be Win Win! If it works.
How much will the scheme raise?
The average number of comments over the past year is 34 per day. At 5 cents that makes $1.70 per day. In a month that makes $52. PoC already gives $25 per month to Texas Maine Coon Rescue together with ad hoc donations.
The 5 cents per comment policy started on 19th June 2013 at 1 pm. At this time, the total number of comments from May 2012 is: 12,809. I will count from that number and make a payment to a cat charity once per month.
Anyone can check because comments are there for all to see.
Donations will be transparent. They will be recorded and published so there is no question of this scheme being anything other than a genuine way of benefiting cat welfare.
How to choose the charities?
The selected charities who benefit should be in countries from which most visitors to PoC come. The top four are USA, UK, European countries, India. I will select a charity from these countries that accept payment through manageable methods. The best is PayPal.
If someone has a preference just tell me. I’ll listen. Promise.
How long will this scheme run?
I don’t know. That is an honest answer. As long as it runs, cat charities benefit. It is up to visitors to PoC to decide how long the scheme runs. There are many reasons why it might stop. I want it to continue permanently.
