This weekend I’ve been working on a new website called The Contributor. The idea behind The Contributor is that people can get paid to write articles (about anything) and also raise money for charity.
The concept is simple: Each month a charity is chosen. People write articles and share them amoung their friends and family. Friends and family “Like” (or +1 if they’re a bit geeky ) the article. The article with the most support wins at the end of the month and the profit from advert revenue on the website is devided 50-50 between the author and the charity of the month 😀
I wanted to give the website a newpaper-like name, such as the something-times or xxxxx digest, but then came up with the idea that someone who writes articles for a newspaper is called a contributor… And because the website is also about contributing to charity, the name just seemed to make sense.
It’s a great way to give to charity without actually spending any money, please do check it out or better yet, contribute an article 😉
