Charity Water, bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Astonishingly, it gives 100 percent of public donations to fund clean water projects. The organization has raised more than $61 million since its launch in 2006.To spread the message, Charity Water is encouraging as many people as possible to donate their birthdays to the cause today. I spoke to Scott Harrison about the impact being made and how you can get involved now. I also surprised him by sharing that I would be donating my next birthday on May 6 to Charity Water! One of the most effective ways for people to engage and bring clean drinking water to the almost 800 million people in the world without is to use their birthday," Harrison said. "Instead of throwing a big party or asking for a bunch of gifts they probably don't really need, is to ask for their age in dollars and start a charity campaign."

In 1987, a quilt created by The Names Project Foundation covered the National Mall in Washington, D.C., memorializing those we lost to AIDS. Today, we stand at the threshold of another defining milestone in this fight: by 2015, we should be able to provide treatment to the millions more who need it, drastically reduce new infections, and virtually end the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies. 1.4 million HIV+ pregnant women need access to treatment – treatment that only costs about 40 cents a day.It can be done. But we need your help to get there.Join millions of existing ONE and (RED) supporters. Add your panel to the (2015)QUILT. Make a pledge to do more and a thank you gift will come your way. Our friends, THE KILLERS have once again recorded a Christmas song for us— their 6th song for the cause. Add your pledge to the (2015)QUILT and receive one of (THE KILLERS) RED Christmas songs for free.The beginning of the end of AIDS starts with you.

• We are bombarded with so many requests for uses of our time – Something has to catch our eye in order to decide to devote time to it. Giveaways and other incentives grab attention• People respond to give and take relationships – What can I do for you, and what can you do for me? – People don’t always expect something in return, so when they are pleasantly surprised they are more likely to become evangelists• It is most effective when the incentive is related to the brand – i.e. Recipe in exchange for cookbook newsletter sign-up – i.e. Branded cookie in exchange for new website feedback• Adds a personal, human-like touch – People like maintaining relationships with people rather than corporations/organizations 13
• Since one of the goals of a NFP’s existence are about raising funds, it wouldn’t make sense or look good to donors to use donated resources to reward people for engaging on social media. This is why incentivizing via social media is a little bit different for an NFP than a corporation or brand.• One thing that people inherently enjoy is the “feel-good feeling” associated with doing a good deed or contributing to the greater social good, and of course, being publically recognized for it.• This is something NFPs can leverage as an incentive. 14
