Next idea: make charitable donations an easier, everyday thing. 🤔🤔🤖

Discussion
@zxed How are you going to proceed? 🤔
@satwaya :) I think I found a VERY simple way to get this into an everyday thing (it’s not the same person donating everyday). Just need to validate with a few people; I know I want to ask @rrhoover what he thinks :) will publicly share once it’s validated or invalidated.
@satwaya @zxed I would focus on making donations socially rewarding or fun in some way. It's already easy to donate, especially on Facebook where they've built an entire feature around this.
@satwaya @rrhoover completely agree - simple example. “Ryan, can I buy you a coffee/beer for a few minutes of your time” vs “Donate $5 to this cause for a few minutes of my time over a call” - making that exchange simpler can be a fun an interesting way. Pants optional for virtual coffees.
@satwaya I’ve combined this goal with another - building out https://www.producthunt.com/upco... that will let money paid go directly to charity instead. Will be building this out ASAP- would appreciate it if you subscribed as I’ll be looking for feedback frequently 😃
@zxed Very good idea! Will donations be done for/between individuals?
@aliciaheraz Thanks! depends if its for a "beer fund" or a "non-profit"., X pays $5 for time with Y; Y has decided it should go to ACLU., Donation is made in Y's name.
@zxed ... or X could send the $5 directly to ACLU (in Y's name) if ACLU is listed, by Y, as their current target charity to donate to ;)
@aliciaheraz People do try to do this today but there is too much friction in the coordination of "Yes, I sent it - give me your time"; the opportunity is making this a single click to connect all three things :)
@aliciaheraz marked this as complete and shared the reason :) I’m excited to build out https://www.producthunt.com/upco... which includes this goal. Would love if you subscribed. Might not be obvious at the moment on what that product has to do with charity; soon it will.
@zxed I like this a lot!
@devinviss hey there! Thanks for your positive reinforcement. I can’t insert an image here, but you’ll soon see my vision on this on the upcoming product page and Id greatly appreciate it if you subscribed for updates :) https://www.producthunt.com/upco...
Completed my vision on how I’d love for this to work. You’ll see this in the next week or so as I build out this product: https://www.producthunt.com/upco...
