Dots -> Dollars

Click here for the micro-enterprise/finance projects we are currently funding.

How the “dot” system works:

Check in on the edot site, enter your “thing” and watch the dots add up!

250 dots–we’ll email you and ask if you want an actual tree to plant yourself or an ecard that states that a tree has been planted on your behalf.  We’re partnering with the Arbor Foundation to make this happen.

500 dots–for now, we’re funding through three organizations:  Kiva, World Vision Micro, and Vittana.  When you hit 500 dots, you can choose which edot sponsored project will receive a contribution from you, and edot will make the donation on your behalf.  As a community of individuals, we’ll be funding a lot of micro-enterprise projects and helping make a difference around the world!

750 dots–you know from our focus on Water Wednesday that we care deeply about water as a resource.  You’ll receive a water themed reusable water bottle when you reach this benchmark.

1000 dots–this is where it gets personal.  You choose the organization, and edot will send a contribution based on the ratio of funds we have raised and how many active edotters we have.  The gift will go to your organization of choice, we’ll do a Twitter/Facebook shout out, and it will all be done in your name.

Yes..this is cool, exciting, and makes a huge difference!  But we need your help:

1. Spread the word.  The more edotters we have, the more enticing we are to grantors and foundations.  With your help, we can grow quickly.

2. Check in on edot!  Do your thing and see what other people are doing.  You’ll be inspired, we promise!

    This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a very long while. I will do all I can to support the program and to spread the word!

      Thank you! You’ve done some great edotting already! Stay tuned–this month we’re making some updates to the site to make it more interactive and challenging. And thanks so much for spreading the work–the more people we have doing this, the better for our communities!
