Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Ruben Dua, a LA native, recently announced the launch of his company’s patent-pending browser bookmark technology to allow people to participate in social good while shopping online. Chipkos has already partnered with over 2000 stores including over 100 of America’s top retail stores such as Amazon, Apple, Nike, Guess, and Target.
The Chipkos Bookmark is an easy-to-use browser add-on that is compatible with all browsers including Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. It allows people to shop directly on the sites they know and trust and make a charitable donation to the cause of their choice. Customers never pay more for products and sometimes receive special discounts.
“Chipkos is about letting people shop for the items they already buy from the stores they love and still participate in humanitarianism,” says Chipkos CEO, Ruben Dua. “Gone are the days where people have to purchase the products that corporate America chooses to do a good deed.”
“The Chipkos business model allows consumers to shop online and give back to charities in their local communities,” says Josh Stomel, CEO of NeoHire. “Chipkos is one of the most promising LA based Internet startups with a product everyone should use.”
