Over 90% of the people who have clicked through our shipping charge donation demonstration said they would donate via this mechanism if given the option. Their donations ranged from $2 all the way up to matching the entire cost of their order. Here are some of their comments:
“I think the best part about this concept is being able to donate your shipping charges because you don’t feel like it is money out of your pocket, which I think would make more people likely to donate.”
“Yes, I would donate on a well-known website.”
“I don’t think anyone would pass up having Amazon or whoever donate the shipping cost…it makes them look good.”
“I would use it!”
A survey conducted by Independent Sector, a coalition of philanthropic organizations, revealed that more than 60% of people give to charity simply because they are asked.
