T.A.G. takes Pay-it-Forward online

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: Nonprofit, Social Entrepreneurship |

Ideablob features social entrepreneurs and their ideas. Every month ideablob members can vote on the ideas they think are the most worthwhile and that idea receives $10,000 to help them get jump started.

One of the great ideas this month is T.A.G. or Turning Actions to Good. The founder has taken the idea of the movie Pay It Forward (I’m sure you’ve all heard of it!), as well as the book, and combined them with the game of Tag, we all know from childhood, to give everyone access to philanthropy.

His vision is to use the internet for people to print off T.A.G. cards, each one for a specific organization. They use this card, along with the commitment they took by printing it off, and commit an act-of-kindness, based on the organizations mission, for someone else. This act doesn’t have to be giving money, everything is possible.

Once committing the act they hand the card to the person they committed the act for.

This concept, that he explains much better on his website, utilizes an innovative method of the internet to help others to participate in philanthropy, even if they can’t afford to donate.

As soon as he gets his site up and running I am going to print off my first T.A.G. card!!

Check out ideablob to vote for him, and peruse the other innovative ideas on the site.
