Tipping Bucket is a fresh approach to changing the world. Tipping Bucket helps non-profits, social businesses, and startup social entrepreneurs leverage social media to fund projects that do social good. They are a crowd-funding platform that uses social media and social networks to generate micro-donations for development-oriented projects, called buckets. Tipping Bucket launches one specific "Change the World" project at a time, in one of seven impact sectors—Community, Education, Energy, Environment, Health, Justice, Opportunity.
Each project has a specific funding goal and a deadline. Working alongside their partners, they use social media to guide micro-donors to their website, where they can pledge as little as $1 (the default amount) to help that project get off the ground. Of course, there is no limit to what donors can give, but the model is to raise significant financial and social capital for these ventures by spreading world-changing ideas.
