We all know that sometimes life can get a little crazy. Schedules fill up in the blink of an eye, obligations seem to come out of the woodwork, and service isn’t always the first thing on the average teen’s mind. Luckily, with SaySo For Good, you can give back in fifteen minutes from the comfort of your own home.
The founders of SaySo For Good built their business on the belief that doing good should be an integral part of a company, and not an afterthought. With SaySo’s unique model, companies can use their research budget to both learn about the market and give back. Meanwhile, those taking the surveys provide valuable feedback for companies everywhere and support a favorite charity.
“SaySo For Good is an opportunity for people to support and earn donations for their favorite charity – without having to leave their home or open their wallet,” said Baillie Buchanan, co-founder. “By simply spending 10-15 minutes online giving their opinions in anonymous market research surveys, SaySo members earn donations, which go directly to the cause or charity of their choice!”
These donations are collected on a quarterly basis and then distributed to each charity by check. At the end of each quarter, members can see how much their charity made, how much they contributed, and their total lifetime donations.
There aren’t only monetary benefits for charities, either.
“Giving supporters an alternative-giving opportunity that allows them to support a charity without having to spend any of their own money, or commit to volunteering in person at a specific location or time is a great way to engage supporters who may not otherwise be able to help,” said Buchanan.
SaySo also has a daily Do Good Challenge that features a specific charity and encourages people to “Like” or follow them. In the future, they hope to have a “Charity of the Month,” which would include promotion on social media, a featured write-up on the SaySo newsletter or blog, and exposure on the “Choose Your Charity” page that each SaySo member sees when signing up.
Run a non-profit or charity and want to get involved? By partnering with SaySo For Good, you can promote a custom link to all of your supporters that automatically takes them to a survey that supports your organization. SaySo will even provide an email template for you to spread the word and hopefully receive more donations. With all that they offer, it’s evident that SaySo has made a big impact – and the good that they do is here to stay.
