If you’re going to be voting for charities, you need to keep in mind that Kongregate has a world-wide audience.

This is true, but there are many multinational charities that affect people worldwide. Charity isn’t about helping someone in need down the block, it is about helping someone in need, be that person here or in another part of the world.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Charity?

It is common sense that a majority of users will never think twice about the charity. But the nickels and dimes of the people who can afford it will add up, simply because there are so many users. There will always be the outliers of the donations, the random 5 dollar bill that comes in from parents of young users. The percentage of these donations will be infinitesimal compared to the percentages of people who completely ignore it. But because of the sheer numbers of the Kongregate population, whether it is 15 million or 7 million, will make these donations matter.

What charity exactly? There are many. What’s to stop these people from donating to things because of say a TV commercial? Now this is not really meant to shut down this idea, it would be great if kong did this, although they would have to be cautious on how the market this.

This is a very real concern, as a brainstormed idea, what if there were to be an incentive type program used for this charity? For example, the members of Kongregate vote on a small list of legitimate charities to see which charity the money would go to. Possibly the more you donate, the more your vote counts. Or something along those lines. And to EVERYONE, Please, this critisism NEEDS to happen if this were to be a viable idea. No feelings will be hurt.

I see. I had been reading some flawed data I suppose. Was the 28 million hours a month correct?

Yes, hence why I believed it was extremely hopeful. But say only 1% of Kongregate were to donate $0.50 a month, it would still be about 7500 dollars a month. Which is a significantly higher than any one person can raise a month for a charity.

More than 15 million players on Kongregate a month. Close to 1 million hours spent each day. And millions suffer each day. There is no specific way to donate through Kongregate in the status quo, but it is something that should be introduced. Not to pester games with pop ups in the middle of the games, because that is not what it should be about. But if everyone donated 1 dollar for every 5 hours they spent on Kongregate, this Kongregate sponsored Charity would be able to donate around 6 million dollars every month to a charity. That is an extremely hopeful goal, but we need hope now more than ever. A dollar will not make a difference to you. But 6 million will make an undeniable difference to many peoples lives.
At the very least, 1000 dollars will be an easily achievable goal. And any dollar amount will make a difference to someone. IF Kongregate should choose to foster such an idea, I am sure that it will be much improved. Please comment your thoughts on this, because we as the community of Kongregate can make a difference.
