Did you read the breaking news in Fast Company? She’s the First is one of 12 amazing nonprofits partnering with online payment system Dwolla and social news community Reddit for today’s launch of Reddit Donate! Reddit Donate is the newest way She’s the First can harness the power of digital communities to change the world for girls everywhere.
The new initiative empowers subreddit moderators and their members to raise funds through Reddit for the charities of their choice. By becoming a partner, STF can now unleash the fundraising potential of hundreds of thousand of Reddit contributors. For the launch, we’ve teamed up with the TwoXChromosomes subreddit, a group of women who are as excited as we are to provide scholarships to girls throughout the developing world, and the Baking subreddit, who might be able to give us some cupcake making tips in addition to helping us raise funds.
You can read more about the Reddit Donate launch at Fast Company, Reddit and Dwolla, and help us kick things off with a donation at the official Reddit Donate page.
