Do Work, Give Work.
Ever wonder if you could use a few spare minutes to do good? Now, with Give Work, you can help fight poverty around the world using your iPhone. The beneficiaries of this program include refugees in Kenya and displaced people affected by the recent earthquake in Haiti.
How does it work? When you complete a task on your iPhone or iPod Touch, the same task is assigned to a person in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, or Haiti. When your answers match and the task is verified, this person gets paid for the work you did together.
Why Give Work? 42 million refugees have lost their homes and livelihoods due to conflict, and over 1 billion people live in extreme poverty with few opportunities to earn a living. Using donated computers and input from iPhone users through this application, these people can earn money by doing real work.
The more you work, the more you help. Check out your stats on your Give Work profile page and invite your friends to contribute, too!
So go ahead. Give work and change lives, one task at a time.
