Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
Slacktivists around the world are not to blame. With a heart for giving, these individuals are being left behind. Yes, these individuals are signing petitions, becoming noncontributing members of cause organizations, creating hyped status updates to show support and changing their profile picture to show support for causes. The problem is, individuals are "showing" support, but failing to take action toward donating time or energy to help a cause. To the "Slacktivist", the time and money donating action-step is a large one that appears to be out of reach.
But is it the "Slacktivists" fault? We think not. Slacktivists obviously want to take part in something and show support, but, in reality, there's just too many obstacles in giving back for individuals that just want to help, even nominally. How much to give, where to give, where does the money go, is it secure, how do I know...and the list of doubts goes on. For a "Slacktivist" these obstacles are just enough to just click the "share" button, then move on.
The problem is, most individuals want to do something, but lack a clear, simple direction and get lost in all the clutter. Because of this simple fact, the number of non-contributing "Slacktivists" around the world is growing exponentially.
But there IS a solution....Enter the CURE for the "Slacktivist".
With a focus on simplicity, security and transparency, Doing My Part is the perfect opportunity for the new age "Slacktivist". Anyone can sign up as a member (or "hero"), donate a nominal $3/month (automatically - can stop anytime) and contribute directly to ongoing, life-saving projects with no further action required. New members can be confident in their donations by witnessing live projects being completed and join a community of people who simply want to help others.
The "Doing My Part" team handles the entire process LIVE and in REAL-TIME. New members can simply "do their part" to help complete life saving projects, one goal at a time using the simplest form of online giving; automatic, micro-donations. Perfect for those who just want to give without all the clutter, hype and smoke-and-mirrors.
Doing My Part, Inc. co-founder, Mike Spencer states, "I'll admit, I was a slacktivist myself...That's actually a main reason we started this movement. We wanted to give everyone a simple opportunity to give back, be a part of a movement and feel good about it without taking much time, money or energy...but still making an impact in helping others. Now we can easily come together and simply "do our part" for something good!"
Slacktivist no longer has to be a negative word. Doing My Part is allowing anyone, especially "Slacktivists", to get involved and making a real difference. Through taking minimal time, effort and without having to cut a fat check, the "Slacktivist" no longer has to feel left behind. The solution is just 3 clicks away.
Doing My Part is a non-profit organization with the mission of "transforming the way the world gives back". Doing My Part gives anyone the chance to become a Hero through a minimal $3 automatic monthly donation.
