MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new charitable organization has emerged: 1DollarClub.org(TM). Based in Minneapolis, MN, this Section 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Charitable Foundation operates on the simple idea that any person can make a real difference with the combination of two simple things: one dollar and their social network.

One dollar alone cannot really do much in today's world, said founder Matthew Crowe. But collectively, millions of people can come together, donate one dollar and create change as a global society. Everyone wants to make a difference and many people either don't know how or don't feel they can make a difference.
Here's how the foundation works: Anyone who donates is limited to one dollar and one dollar only. Once you've donated, you then invite your social network to also donate. These donors then follow suit with their networks. The real way to make the 1DollarClub(TM) work is by activating the individuals in your social network to donate. So no matter if you are Richard Branson, Bill Gates, or just an average Josephine or Joe -- your dollar has the same impact and power as anyone else's. Plus, you can track your fund-raising effectiveness by watching your 1Factor(TM) grow. The 1Factor(TM) is a unique tool invented to track your progress in getting your network to join the 1DollarClub(TM).
Crowe went on to state, Now, through our site, www.1DollarClub.org, your social network is of more use than simply to see what your friends are doing after school or work. Really, we created the 1DollarClub.org(TM) as a way to put your social network to the best use of all: to aid our world-class foundation partners in a momentous way.
The goal for the 1dollarclub.org is to raise $10,000,000 -- 1 dollar at a time. Today, we are connected more than ever and what better way to put your social network to work for a common good?
