This topic isn’t exactly the kind of thing I usually write about but I was so impressed by the concept I couldn’t resist.
A new smart phone app called cause.it lets businesses, people and non-profits come together in a unique way.
Here is how it works. Businesses partner with non-profits. People volunteer for these non-profits and in exchange get discounts to use at the businesses the non-profits are partnered with.
Right now cause.it is only available in a few cities but the company is growing quickly.
There is a very good video on the web site that explains things in full detail.
