    Pros: 

    No downsides, easy way to passively donate at no cost

    Cons: 

    Have to see ads but they're minor

    I've used Tab for a Cause for over 3 years and I think it's amazing. Every time you open a new tab, you're accruing "hearts" that can be donated to a charity of your choice (there's several to choose from). It's super easy and I don't see any cons since you open tabs anyway. You can even add favorites and customize your tab.

    Melissa Chan has used this product for one year.

I love the simplicity behind this: donating to charity just by changing your new tab page. I also like how they've gamified it - levelling up by donating hearts.

@groth_alex @riaface i know this is super late, but this is awesome. i just was searching for charity related things on product hunt and came across this. really cool. im working on a similar concept for feeding the hungry (but not related to opening new tabs like you guys) and would love to connect!

I cant tell how it works. Does it have advertising? Anyway great idea!!
Alex GrothMaker@groth_alex · Co-founder, Gladly
@DesignUXUI Yup, you will see two display ads in the bottom right corner of the new tab page. We use that revenue to support the charities. You'll be amazed how many tabs you open every day!

Interesting idea. Charity work keeps finding new ways to raise money, and its good that its evolving with interesting technology.
