Some exciting stuff!

There are some exciting things happening in moolta.

We’re about to present a new discovery tool for the activities you can do to support causes you care about.

We are working with hundreds of service providers and charities, and by connecting them to our amazing users, we offer a huge variety of activities – from skydiving for breast cancer to volunteering at a zoo.

Image In order to present you with the best results possible that will match your interests, skills and the things that you care about, we crafted a nifty algorithm that takes all of the above into consideration and shoots out a beautiful list of activities you can do right now for the most noble causes on earth.

And… You can even start a fundraiser for those activities in the same way you could create challenges.

Now that’s innovation!

Just one type of fail, the Romantic Fail can be funny, embarrassing and relationship ending all in one.

Every day, new challenges are added on moolta by daredevils looking to raise money for their favorite causes.

Obviously we want every challenge to succeed, but on occasion, a hilarious fail is born providing laughs to all of those who see it. So, today we would like to offer you the very best in FAILS. The art of a fail is truly hysterical and we hope it puts a smile on your face.

Free rice tests your trivia skills for charity!

Free Rice 2.0

Freerice.com is perfect for those who enjoy testing their wits with a good game of trivia. The object of the game is to answer as many questions as you can. For each question that you answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to hungry people for free. You can answer as many questions as you want as well so there is no limit to how much you can give. Free Rice even lets you pick what subject matter you want including Humanities, English, Math, Chemistry, Language Learning, Geography, Sciences and even SAT Test Preparation. You can come to donate or you can come to learn, but whether you like it or not you’re going to leave having done both. The website even has a leaderboard to track who has donated the most rice, and currently the leading contributor has 61,290,000 grains of rice donated.

 

Zynga sold special charitable products on Farmville

Zynga

Game developer, Zynga, raised $1.5 million for Haiti relief efforts following the devastating earthquake. Through their popular games, Farmville and Mafia Wars, they sold special, limited time products that benefited their charitable efforts. Game users worldwide were able to conduct their normal gaming procedures while being able to lend a helping hand to those in need in Haiti.

Playmob is another company that focuses solely on this type of charitable giving. Their product, GiverBoard, is used to raise charitable funds in games like The Sims Social.

 

Other websites do not directly raise money for charities, but still manage to include gaming in raising awareness for good causes.

 

Reality Drop is an activists tool that help spread the truth about global warming while making it game-like.

Reality Drop

Al Gore continues his efforts to raise awareness for global warming through this new online gamification effort. Reality Drop provides you the tools you need to “reveal the denial and deception around climate change, spread the truth, and clear the way toward real solutions.” The website not only provides you info to share with others about global warming, but it tracks how many times and what information you share.

Walk across america for charityInspired by the Month of April, Autism Awareness month and the work I did with Eric Armstrong I thought it would be a good idea to give something back to those in need.  Please check it out and spread the word. Everyone has known a child in need weather it be a friend, a family member, or even themselves who has struggled. UNICEF works towards protecting every child – so why not start helping them now. I’m daring myself to walk across the United States to rase money to charity. If enough money is raised in time – I will document the process by creating a documentary about my journey to raise awareness.  So now – I’m daring you to donate!
