RippleCrowd is creating ‘waves of change’ by giving viral exposure to corporates in exchange for nonprofit funding. The goal is for nonprofits and corporations to work together, in cooperation, to achieve both their goals. Twitter and Facebook users can donate a tweet or status update so that corporations gain viral exposure and they, in turn, help to fund nonprofits who need money to carry out their good. This campaign will help RippleCrowd launch a beta platform for its site.
