Research For Good Helps Consumers Generate Donations To Charity
Launching the first social-enterprise in the Market Research industry, Research For Good has a new vision for raising the social-consciousness of the online-survey business. The innovative company is changing the way people support charity by recruiting members who give their time and opinions to earn donations to their favorite charity, in lieu of a personal reward that is the norm in the industry today.

For the average person, this means time spent giving opinions can quickly add up to significant cash donations to any recognized charity in the U.S. or Canada.

"A lot of people hear the word survey, and cringe," Co-founder Sean Case said. "We've all been bombarded at dinner with phone calls, or approached at the mall for 'a few quick questions.' It's annoying, and people shy away. This is different though. Anyone that wants to get involved can do it on their terms, and every time they participate, they are making a real difference in the world."

The difference that Case notes is the ability to sign up in support of your favorite charity and earn donations for that organization for every completed survey. Research For Good's participant site SaySo For Good allows users to sign-up to be invited to online survey opportunities and users can opt-out at any time. Surveys are completed at the participant's leisure and participation is always optional.

"Peoples' opinions are way more valuable than they think," Case said. "People could take 15 minutes a month to donate opinions literally help us change the world. If one million people did this once per month we could put $12 million a year to work for charity."

RFG went live in Beta on January 2nd and launches publicly Wednesday. Those interested in signing up can do so at http://www.SaySoForGood.com and can choose to support one of the more than 2 million eligible charitable organizations in the US and Canada. During its Beta period, Research For Good has generated $18,257.10 in donations.

Research For Good is actively seeking additional funding. If you are interested in investing in this social-enterprise please contact investors(at)researchforgood(dot)com.
