SEATTLE, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Dollar Per Month™ (DPM™) has announced its three charity partnerships for January 2013. The online non-profit fundraising site raises money for different charity partners every month, by having members donate as little as a dollar per month to their selected organizations. Proceeds from January membership donations will go to Generation Rescue, Giving Children Hope, and Kids in Need Foundation.
Generation Rescue is the leading national organization that provides hope, information and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders. Actress and author Jenny McCarthy is the President and one of their biggest supporters. “I remember the day Evan was diagnosed with autism like it was yesterday. The doctor told me there was no hope or help for him. Thankfully I found Generation Rescue and was inspired by the parents before me to find a different answer,” says McCarthy.
Giving Children Hope works with diverse individuals and communities both locally and around the world, supplying projects that address and focus on the needs of children and serve the poor. They promote family sustainability, economic independence, and self-sufficiency so that children may grow in stable environments.
The Kids In Need Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. The Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers includes 29 facilities where teachers from low-income schools go to obtain free school supplies for their students.
Doug Clerget , co-founder of DPM™ believes “DollarPerMonth.org is a unique way to give to charity because it handpicks deserving charities monthly and conveniently presents them to our members, who often have busy lifestyles. More importantly, our members are exposed to new and important charity organizations they may not have been aware of previously.”
Each month, DPM™ selects three charities for members to vote on. DPM™ then posts information about the charities to help members evaluate each and make their vote. DPM™ has already carefully investigated and evaluated all three charities to ensure they are reputable, making a positive impact on the world and that the vast majority of donations will go directly to the cause. The winning charity receives 50% of the community donations, the 2nd receives 30%, and the 3rd receives 20% – no charity loses!
