Simplifying charity

On Saturday I have an interesting conversation with Nataila Vodianova about her charity initiative Elbo. The idea is that you can like various causes and donate one dollar with each like.

Each dollar you spent brings you LoveCoin, which can be used in the built-in shop for purchasing fancy (and expensive) designer items like bags, cloth etc.

Also, there are ”drops” from time to time - kind of auctions for really excluve item.

Does it helpful for charity to give something material back to donors, especially, millennials? Isn't it dilute the idea of giving?

I would be really grateful for your thoughts.

You can try Elbi app here.

I don't look to get anything back when I donate to charity although I do like the idea of an auction. Does each dollar spent equal the same value in Lovecoin?

I think yes more or less. I don't know what are typical prices for such items.

You said they are expensive designer items, I don't know if people who are interested in spending a lot will bother to buy through the charity. When I shop on Amazon I can have a portion of what I spend go to a designated charity but sometimes I forget to activate it.

I'm not a big fan of this idea from the point of philosophy and clean morality. BUT! If that really stimulates people to get into charity and holds them into this system, then it's ok. I guess for those who need charity it's not very important why did he receive any supplies - because of his benefactor being a good guy or just interested in getting some exclusive designer item.

Charity is ok.. and a app that collect money for this is also ok. But im combination with bonuses and selling things is not acceptable for me. I don’t know how I can name this.. charitybusiness.. ?

They are not making money on it. Items are provided by brands for free.

What's wrong with incentivizing by 'giving back" a bit? As long as you collect more than you give. Isn't that also the entire idea behind fancy charity dinners, events etc?

If this is all handeld from non-profit organisations it’s ok

Not a bit. It turns donation to purchase.

13th, with the big difference that parts of the profit cause to the charity cause.

nachdenken!, actually, 100%, no management fee. I was curious about inner motives and how other people feel to donate in this way. I do not put result into question.

13th, aren't there acquisition costs to be paid for the shpp items or does your friend get them for free?

I don't expect anything in return for giving, and in particular I don't want to have to shop as a result of charity, but I'm alao not a millennial, and there are many other business models also that don't make sense to me.

I can understand recognition gifts, but shopping is too much for me too.

What if we could give SOL to charity instead? It would have to actually be worth something, and usable, and that would mean the devs would have to put in some work in their own creation, but it would be cool if one day some of those things happened

The future is ripe for change. Will we see it before it spoils? Odds say no.

WyldBot [WildFyre], we will certainly see change, im just sad that said change is likely the backside of 13th and co. As they take the money and run
