Givey.org – Support Charities Using Facebook

Givey.orgGivey is a new social game that has an interesting objective: determining who the most altruistic people on Facebook are. This is achieved in a really simple way, as (upon signing for the service) you will begin receiving specific questions. These questions always have the same structure: you are told about an altruistic challenge, and you are asked which of three random friends is more likely to meet it.

 

Typical questions include who of any three friends is more likely to donate blood, or give money to a homeless person who asks for it.

Based on the responses of all the people who know them, an altruistic score will be generated. And the moment you begin using this system, then your friends are also enabled to vote for you, of course.

The eventual end of the game will come when the ten people who have been ranked as the most altruistic individuals on Facebook are asked to vote for the non-profit that (according to them) deserves to receive a $ 5,000 donation. That money is also to be donated by users of Givey.
