Buy one or lots. www.charityswearbox.com @swearbox
    • 15. Chain FunderA Made by Many idea - originally byMike Laurie.Chain Funder disrupts email chainletters for good.Here’s how it works: set a target foryour fund, pledge how much youpromise to donate and invite a friend todo the same. This sets off a chainreaction of promises until your target isreached. The catch is, nobody donatesa penny until we reach the target.Some might call it a Ponzi scheme,extortion, an abuse of friendships oranti-social media. We call itChainFunder. http//chainfunder.com @mikelaurie @mikelaurie
    • 16. mTOILET TO POCKETSwiss agency Relax In The Air, havecreated a project that exploits the dailyrhythms of nature to drive giving.By donating for famine relief in EastAfrica every time you go to the toilet,youll remember that youre luckyenough to process food and drink.To participate download the toilettracker dashboard, count the number oftimes you go to the loo and how muchyoull donate per visit.On 16 October donate the total amountto famine aid.We are all consumerists.

The platform lets you sendprewritten tweets, urging eachcelebrity to donate to the cause andtweet to their millions of followers.Jack and Paul are two designersturned advertising creatives, whohave produced work for brandssuch as Sony, Converse and Diesel.Enjoythis are a creative productionstudio, specialising in all thingsdigital. http://www.africaneedsyou.com/ @_africaneedsyou
    • 24. DARE-BOTDareBot uses social media to help people raise money bydoing stupid, difficult or disgusting things. DareBot allowspeople to support stupidity by collecting all the supporterdonation promises and totting them up until the darer hitstheir target and does the deed.We think this really trades on the very asynchronous natureof Twitter, especially when theres someone with lots offollowers who want to do something for charity. We could imagine people like Graham Linehan or evenAshton Kutcher daring to do things and keeping track of allthe people whove supported the dare.The messaging is very clear - I will only do THIS THING, if youlot promise to donate X amount. http://darebot.herokuapp.com/ @malbonster

    • 26. GOOD BELLY PROJECTThis idea brings foodies and restaurants together to supportour cause by reversing the idea of boycotting - “buy-cotting”.People love food so much they take photos of their meals toshare with friends. Were reaching out to foodies and turningtheir passion into action by getting restaurants to donate forevery photo posted.Its a win, win, win. Foodies enjoy new restaurants andcuisine, restaurants get more patrons and receive publicity,and most importantly we help children in East Africa enjoydinner, too. A full belly is a good belly.How it works:1. Take a photo of your meal at one of the participatingrestaurants2. Upload your pics to Instagram with the hashtag#eatforhunger3. Tag your restaurant locations4. Restaurants donate a $ for every photo uploaded www.goodbellyproject.com @mullenunbound @joingoodbelly
    • 27.

For each location theyll add atip telling people about the famine crisiswith a direct link to donate to UNICEF.They are also building a simple websitewhich explains how to do this in yourcity so that the same action can bereplicated around the world. http://on..me/tipsforchange   @arnoldworldwide
    • 28. GIVE IT UP FOR EAST AFRICAThis project comes from JWT in NYC. Its aproject they were already working on.The idea is that you put a request out for achilli recipe, or to learn juggling, or anessay on the metaphysical property ofping pong and say that you are willing todonate $10 (or whatever) for that service.Someone then sees that request andfulfils it - giving you the chilli recipe orwhatever for free but asking that the $10goes to East Africa famine relief. @koopstakov
    • 29. LET’S NOT DO LUNCHBSSP in San Francisco held an ideashack to generate a project for 5050.Rather than go out to eat with yourcolleagues or interested vendor overa business lunch that is most likelypaid for by an expense account,donate $5, $10 or $15 to Famine ReliefThey want to make a web app thatintegrates with Google Calendar andiCal, and allows people to send eachother a meeting request for a lunchdate at a given restaurant. But insteadof actually attending lunch, bothparties would donate the money to EAfrica famine relief. http://www.facebook.com/letsnotdolunch @cotton
