The results of your voting for your two favorite charities are in – The dollars have been tallied and we have the winners! Our “Buck For Charity” Drive asked you to vote for your two favorite charities out of a list of five that we provided while donating $1.00 into a general pool, with the two charities with the highest vote counts splitting the final amount of money raised.

My friend Adam from Twilight Earth sums up my thoughts pretty well on this, so I will let him say it instead:

“I was a little surprised to find that more of you actually contributed to the charity than actually voted. That means that for a lot of you, it wasn’t so much about which charity got your dollar as it was about the act of giving. When I say surprised, what I mean is online polls are notoriously manipulated, with people voting and not donating, or people voting multiple times…This wasn’t just about The Good Human , Twilight Earth, Grass Stain Guru, Lighter Footstep, My Green Side, The Smart Mama, A Little Greener Every Day, Fake Plastic Fish, Allies Answers, and Natural Papa raising money. It was about all of us, websites and readers together, engaging in a collective effort to do good and make positive change.”

And now for the results!

The total amount of donations received is $653.00! This is actually a lot of money considering that we only asked each person to donate $1.00, and the money that you donated will be happily received by Sustainable Harvest with 27% of the votes and Water for People with 24% of the votes!

The runner up’s are:

Environmental Working Group received 21% of the votes

Healthy Child Healthy World received 15% of the votes and

Kiva received 13% of the votes

Thank you all very much for helping to make the “Buck For Charity” drive a success, and we look forward to working with you all again in the future!

Participating websites: The Good Human, Twilight Earth, Lighter Footstep, Green Upgrader, Grass Stain Guru, My Green Side, The Smart Mama, A Little Greener Every Day, Fake Plastic Fish, Allie’s Answers, and Natural Papa.

  1. Awesome outcome!
    I think that people generally do want to help others, it’s just a matter of feeling overwhelmed with where to start. This gave people a simple way to jump in and do something.
    It would be great to do this again! Maybe with some other charities as well.
