frequently asked questions
1. How does this work?
We believe in keeping things super simple. Once you have created your account through Facebook or email, you may begin to set up your shopping page by choosing from thousands of our partner sites . When you click on the merchant partner site (Target, Walmart, etc.), from your cluckacause shopping page you will be directed directly to the merchants site. When you make a purchase, a percentage of that purchase will appear in your cluck bank account. Your donations will continue to accumulate until you decide when, where and how the amount is distributed to your cause or causes. Choose from the many non-profits featured on our site, search or create a cause.
Each day we will be featuring a charitable organization. Along with learning about the charity and how you can help, we will showcase beautifully designed items that are made specifically for this charity which you may purchase directly from our site. When you make a purchase of this type, you will be supporting this organization directly. What a lovely way to learn and support a charity!
Wether you choose to shop this way, through your personal shopping page, or both! With each donation, you will be introduced to other cluckacause members who support the organizations you do! Connect with others in a meaningful way, perhaps organize a local fundraiser or volunteer opportunity. What a beautiful way to connect with others!
2. If I shop through cluckacause does my purchase cost more?
Absolutely Not! When you click on "Target", "Wall Mart", etc., from your cluckacause shopping page, you will land directly on that merchants own website as if you typed it into the URL yourself! There are no extra charges or fees involved. Make your online purchases just as you normally do and we keep track of the rest.
3. Can I support or create more than one cause?
Absolutely yes! This is one of the features we thought most helpful. Because we all have so many causes we care about! Support or create as many causes as you'd like! You are always in control of when and where each donation is made. You will also receive confirmation of your tax deductible donation from the 501 c3 Non Profit directly. If your cause is not a 501 c3, (a cause you have created for example), you will not be making a tax deductible donation and it is up to the charity itself to recognize your donation.
4. If I purchase an item from the Tory Burch Foundation, RED, etc. does a percentage go to my cause.
No. When you shop from our daily featured charities and make a purchase of one of the designed items made for that particular charity, you will be supporting that specific organization and will not see a percentage earned in your cluck account. However, it is important to remember you are supporting that organization directly! You are helping their cause by making a purchase designed just for them and that is a good thing!
5. Can I make a direct dollar donation to a charity?
Yes, with any charitable organization who joins cluckacause you will see a "direct donate" button which will allow you to donate any amount you choose through PayPal.
5. Do I need to decide on a cause right away?
No, you can decide which charities to make a donation to at any point in time. However, remember that as soon as you support an organization by making a donation to a charity, you will be introduced to cluckacause members who support the same organization. Making you a team member of that organization!
6. What is for dinner?
