A Simple ReTweet to Donate $0.25 to Children International

Posted by Blake Brown under Charity

QuiBids & Children International Need Your Help!

We are more than half-way through the month of February, and we’re still nowhere near our goal of raising $2,500 for Children International.  Do you want to see QuiBids reach our goal?  We’re here to tell you that there’s a way you can help at absolutely no cost to you whatsoever.  You may recall our post from earlier this month explaining how we’re using Twitter to raise money for Children International.  We’ve embedded a specific Tweet in various blog posts throughout this month.  QuiBids will donate $0.25 to Children International for every ReTweet that Tweet receives during the month of February.  We’ve even made it easier to ReTweet.  Now you’re able to ReTweet directly from our blog without ever needing to get on Twitter, or without having to search for that Tweet in the QuiBids Twitter feed.

Why Children International?

Children International is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that “… strive(s) to help children around the world overcome the burdens of poverty to become healthy, educated, self-sustaining and contributing members of society.”  This goal is achieved more so through child sponsorships than donations.  Children International uses child sponsorships to unite an individual sponsor with a child to personally address the child’s immediate and basic needs.  Currently, QuiBids sponsors 10 children, 5 girls and 5 boys, through Children International.  Our employees are taking it upon themselves to actively write to these children and continue to build relationships with the children.

In addition to sponsorships, Children International works to further improve the living conditions of children and families who live in poverty through projects such as latrine building, clean-water initiatives and income-generation programs.  And with their housing programs, they’re able to build new homes for victims of natural disasters along with repairing and upgrading older houses with sturdy roofs and concrete floors.
