Donate Your Desktop for the City Mission

February 12 2013

Donate Your Desktop for the City Mission

The Auckland City Mission is delighted to announce an exciting partnership with an innovative fundraising initiative...Donate Your Desktop.

Donate Your Desktop is a simple way for any New Zealander to give to charity at no cost to themselves. By joining the initiative a user can generate a donation for a charity like the Auckland City Mission every day. All they have to give up is the picture on the desktop background of their computer.

The concept is simple. A user downloads the free application and installs it on a computer (Windows and Mac). Each day their desktop background is refreshed with a new designer wallpaper, sponsored by an advertiser. In return for receiving this wallpaper, each advertiser makes a donation on the user's behalf.

The selected charity receives 75% of all the fees charged to advertise on that desktop. The more users that sign up in aid of a charity, the more money that charity will receive.

Auckland City Missioner Diane Robertson is very excited by the new partnership. "The Mission is always on the lookout for new methods of fundraising. We believe Donate Your Desktop is a truly innovative approach to raising money for charities and we are delighted to help build the concept at such an early stage".

Donate Your Desktop director, David Hillier said; "We're very proud to welcome the Mission as a partner charity and look forward to some good growth through the Mission's loyal supporters."
