Give a Bit: Social Media for Social Change

GiveBit is a charitable fundraising tool for the social media world. Re-tweeting one of their registered charity posts won’t just spread the word to your followers, you’ll also be donating £1 to the chosen cause.

For a charity with any size of Twitter presence, this looks like a great idea. Not only is it free for charities to sign up, they get 100% of what has been donated. GiveBit do take a 5% slice, but this is added to the person donating’s bill – for every £1 they donate, they are charged £1.05p. It should also help to build your Twitter following and interest will build.

And for any business looking to beef up their own Corporate Social Responsibility angle, promoting GiveBit to your employees or your own Twitter followers makes it an easy win – win!
