You would donate to your favorite nonprofit, but you’re saving for a car made this century. You’d volunteer at the local animal shelter, but Chairman Meow and Neiman Barkus make you wheeze.
So what’s a do-gooder, well, do? Log onto Causora.com, the L.A.-based fundraising platform where people turn their skills into donations to the charity of their choice.
Simply create a profile briefly explaining your qualifications and service for hire (French lessons, private yoga sessions), price (starting at $1), and cause. Ninety percent of each donation goes directly to your chosen charity via PayPal; the remaining 10 percent is used to keep the ad-free site up and running.
Have more dollars than time? Browse pages of offerings that range from enticing (“I will give you personalized sushi restaurant recommendations in L.A.”) to hey, why not (“I will listen to how your day went”).
Who hasn’t wanted a $5 shoulder to cry on?
