Altruisto.com is a social project which goal is to provide a way of doing on-line shopping that has a huge positive impact on the World.
Maybe you will not save the planet like a superhero from a comic book, but you definitely can change lives of several people a year just by using our chrome extension. If you spend $100 per month in our partners' stores, after a year you will generate about $57, which is enough to: 1) provide for 11 bednets protecting people from malaria [source] or 2) provide anti-parasite medicines for 47 children [source] or 3) provide for 3 months of living for 1 person in extreme poverty [source]. That is a real difference.
There a thousands of charities. Some of them are great. Some of them - not so much. Because of that we donate the funds only to charities which are EXCEPTIONAL. As you can read above, they can do a lot with even small amount of money.
Altruisto.com is an initiative that addresses this problem. We help "the average person" to save money by finding discounts for products they purchase on-line, and also we help fight extreme poverty by donating money to charities with high impact.
