    How did you manage to get those big names on board? 😮

      Also, since they are big they already had a process of starting partnership like that in place, usually through their affiliate network

    Hey, hey

    I have made a browser extension so that when you shop online you can donate portion of the money you pay to charities. There are no extra costs for you, the donation is fully covered by the shop.

    There are over 1000 partner shops including etsy, aliexpress, ebay, microsoft.

    The charities we support are research-backed and vetted by GiveWell and Animal Charity Evaluators: Against Malaria Foundation, SCI Foundation, Give Directly, Anima International.

    It is written in Typescript/React and PHP/Symfony4. The source code is on github: https://github.com/altruisto/altruisto

      Hey @kovsky0 this is awesome, I love the idea!! We are currently working on a project that aims to bring more transparency to donations made through for-profit companies. Would you like to have a quick chat?

          I don't use fb 😅 do you have telegram? Or maybe we could chat on twitter?
