UPDATE – The Giveaway is now CLOSED
Let me tell you a little about Charity Voice, but before I do I feel the need to share why I normally do not talk much about survey companies.
I receive numerous requests about alternative ways to earn money online. While there are many survey companies (some reputable ones I have shared in the past), I hesitate to talk about a lot of them because many are crappy, spam you, sell information and require you to jump through hoops to earn points, enter sweepstakes, etc. before you can even think about getting anything out of it.
Charity Voice caught my eye because of the philanthropic angle. The parent company has many years of research experience and when the owner’s dog passed away from cancer, they were driven to make a difference in the ways charities can earn revenue while providing exceptional research results. They created AllieSmiles and then the birth of Charity Voice.
I am so excited to be partnering with Charity Voice because in this economy it is getting harder and harder for people to give to the charities that so desperately need our help. Charity Voice allows you to not only earn money for yourself, but you can also choose to donate it to your favorite charity. How easy is that? You can donate to many well-known charities such as Juvenile Diabetes, American Cancer Society, ASPCA, Red Cross, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and many more. You can even contact them to see about having your favorite charity added to the list.
Brands and businesses NEED market research to improve their products and services, so they pay for it. In return, Charity Voice pays you – CASH (not sweepstakes entries or points or credits) - via Paypal for the surveys you complete. You even earn $5 just for joining. Because their parent company are researchers themselves, they comply with all the laws governing privacy and spamming.
When you register, you actually choose how often you want to be contacted and you can opt out at any time. You participate anonymously and will not be contacted by any of the companies or have to sign up for future mailings or offers. You will receive invitations to participate in a survey, or you will see available surveys in your dashboard – look I had $5 worth right when I logged in:
If you qualify and complete the survey, you will receive reward dollars which you can cash out to paypal or donate when your account reaches $25. You can decide each time – keep some, donate some. Many surveys will pay $2, $5, $10, $25 or more depending on survey length and level of respondent required. Your account is typically credited within 7-14 days after completion of the survey. Luckily you only have to go through a couple questions in order to find out whether you qualify. Now some of them are long – 20 minutes is really close to that, but one of mine was all about ice cream brands.
So if you have some time online and want to earn some money for you or a charity, or if you just want to provide feedback to help shape future brands and improvements, join Charity Voice now and be sure to look for the confirmation email to complete the registration process.
