Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
A new non-profit aims to change the way donations are made. The organization, Kindred Box, acts as a subscription service that would aggregate donations and give them to a different charity each month.
In exchange, participants receive a box with a handwritten thank you note and information on the impact their donation has generated. All donations are tax deductible.
According to founder Tim Parkin, the purpose of Kindred Box is to help people discover new and worthy charities to give toward.
“Kindred Box brings clarity and accountability to donating to charity,” Parkin said. “It was started on the idea that non-profit organizations should be transparent about how and where your donations are being used, and that how much, or how often, you give should be up to you.”
Kindred Box also prevents users from future solicitations. Acting as the middle man, the organization does not give donors’ contact information to the charity being sponsored.
“Solicitations are one of the necessary evils of non-profits,” Parkin said. “Funding is required and it makes the most sense to ask those people who have already given money to give again. We think donors shouldn’t be pestered with giving more, especially when there is still a lack of transparency.”
Kindred Box is not currently active yet and is on IndieGoGo, a crowdfunding website. The IndieGoGo campaign for the organization ends November 26.
