Feeling charitable this holiday season? So are PayPal and Convio. Donate to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (the "leading civil liberties group defending
your rights in the digital world") this week and you can double — or perhaps even triple — the value of your contribution. Between now and Friday, November 12, the two companies are matching up to US$ 5,000 in donations to EFF made via PayPal.
Here's how it works:
- Go to the EFF donation form.
- Enter the information and choose PayPal as your payment method.
- You will be redirected to a PayPal login page to complete the transaction.
- You're done! PayPal matching is automatic.
To triple your contribution, ask your human resources department if your employer matches your charitable donations, then fill out the necessary paperwork and forward it to EFF.
As an added bonus, the charity that raises the most money and the charity that receives the most donation transactions will each receive US$ 1,000 prizes. So go on, protect your rights and get some universal brownie points.
