Sink or Swim + Philanthroper {Week 4}

January 27, 2012

Last Updated:


I discovered a new daily deals website recently called Philanthroper. How it works is that the daily “deals” are selected charities — making it easy and fun to select a cause to donate too.

So Week 4 of the Forkover Friday project is for Sink or Swim, via Philanthroper.

You know those daily deal sites? We’re another one of those. But instead of selling something, we’re sharing the story of a new 501(c)3 nonprofit every day. And if you’d like, you can give them $1 (or more). We’re trying to make doing good a habit. —Philanthroper
