Overview

Raise money for the world's most effective charities through your everyday online shoppings with no extra costs.

You can start helping people in extreme poverty with no extra effort or costs. Just install an extension, and when you buy something online, people living in severe poverty will get medicines, bed nets, or financial aid. There are no extra costs for you (the charity donation is covered by our partner stores). We’ve partnered with online stores (including Ebay, Aliexpress, Etsy, Microsoft) to create a unique loyalty program. For every purchase you make in one of our partners’ stores, portion of the money goes to extremely effective, research-backed charities. That way, users can support great causes with no costs, and shops gain clients strongly incentivized to buy from them and not their competition. It works with 1000+ shops including Ebay, Barnes & Noble, Aliexpress, and Etsy. For every $4.85 raised for Against Malaria Foundation two people are protected from malaria (via bed nets) and for every $1.19 raised for Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, one child gets a year supply of medicine. Everyone wins! --- How does it work? --- When you visit one of our partners’ stores online, you will see a special button saying "start raising money". After clicking that button, you will be asked to confirm your choice, and you will then be redirected back to the store. From now on, when you buy something, Altruist receives a commission (usually 1-6%) and donates it to carefully chosen charities. The charities we've chosen to support have been recommended by GiveWell.org - an organization that does in-depth research into how well charities do what they are supposed to do and chooses the best ones. As a result, the charities we support are exceptional at improving the lives of people living in extreme poverty. Thanks to that, you don't have to spend your time verifying if the charity you want to support is good, do their job well, doesn't pay ridiculous salaries to the founders, etc. Selected charities are evidence-backed, thoroughly vetted, and underfunded. Because of all that you can be sure that the money they receive from your online shoppings is used to do as much good as possible. Also, because the charities are so efficient with their funds, every small purchase in Altruisto's partners' shops makes a real difference in someone's life.

This is the kind of extension that makes me ask: "Why not?" Why not raise money for some of the most important causes out there with no effort whatsoever? I could see privacy concerns, but the creator is very transparent (it's even open source!).

Fantastic. An easy way to raise money for great causes, without any added costs. This should come as standard on all web browsers!
