Dollar A Day: new nonprofit campaign from Kickstarter co-founder

Kickstarter co-founder Perry Chen just launched his pet project, Dollar A Day, a compelling new way to find and support a variety of nonprofits! Congrats to Perry and his volunteer team!

From Perry's announcement over at Medium:


1. Every day we feature one amazing nonprofit. We select nonprofits in six key areas: Education, Health, Economic Development, Arts & Culture, Environment, and Human Rights. (Visit the site for full selection criteria and upcoming calendar).

2. Every day we send out a simple email about that nonprofit — we share a paragraph we've written about their mission and work, and link to their site for those that want to learn more. These emails are an incredibly easy way to be introduced to great nonprofits.

3. Every day everyone (who's signed up) automatically donates a dollar to that featured nonprofit. No daily decisions to make, no customization — every day we're all supporting the featured nonprofit, together. (Donations are charged monthly, $30 / 30 days, not a $1 charge each day.)
