Please tell me if you think this is a good idea or not for charity.

Hello everyone.

A lot of my family and friends ask me to look on-line if they need to find the best deal when making a purchase because I'm a sad so and so who spends a lot of time on-line and I love helping them and also if people post wanted requests on here and other sites.

Now I started thinking what about if there was a site (maybe this one) where people who request the best prices and this service was done for free and if people wanted to they could donate to a charity if they feel the site has been of help or maybe even if they just wanted to.

There must be others out there like me who could help and would feel proud to have helped others in finding deals but more importantly maybe is helping a charity.

Mods I know this may sound like 'self-promotion' but this post is for a good cause so please don't delete it.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this and any input would be greatly appreciated.

Pete

Its not self promotion... Its an idea that could be put in place to help good causes. :)

I think its a good idea, even if you only donated a pound! :)

I think there would have to be a lot of planning beforehand and more than 1 person at the start because if the idea takes off then it will not help if the infrastructure isn't sound.
Christmas would be fun if it took off oO but I could see it working quite well with the right people behind it.

I think its a good idea, I use easyfundraising which donates a percentage of what it makes from advertising to a cause of your choice whenever you use the site to do a search or go through them to a site (in a similar way to quidco and topcashback I believe) (if anyone doesn't use it and wants to, feel free to support team matty fundraising!)
I'd certainly use a site that helped to find best prices and things, mainly because I get so fed up of a lot of the current sites being american, or prices out of date and things, especially if it could be a charity of your choice!

Like The Giving Machine but with specific deal requests?

I already use TGM for Amazon purchases as I want my cashback to go somewhere, and as Amazon aren't on Quidco, it may as well go to the local high school.
