HOW IT WORKS
JChoice.org EMPOWERS YOUNG JEWISH GIVING by helping new donors find, evaluate, and support meaningful causes.
JChoice.org PROMOTES ACTS OF TZEDAKAH by today’s Jewish youth. We believe that once learned in their early teens, this behavior of giving will be carried forward for the rest of their lives.
JChoice.org ENGAGES A COMMUNITY OF DONORS to interact with each other and their chosen causes on our social network.
The four main features of JChoice.org are:
Visitors are able to search causes by one of 18 different categories such as education, environment, or hunger; by a Jewish value such as justice, saving a life, or visiting the sick; or by location.
Donors are empowered to give Tzedakah to causes of their choice, to give to a friend or family account, or to purchase gift cards.
JChoice is free to join. Members can connect with one another based on shared values or community, as well as communicate directly with the organizations of their choice. Harness- ing the latest social networking technology, users can blog about their favorite causes, email and invite friends, upload photos and videos, and share their Divrei Torah and Mitzvah Projects.
Beyond giving, Donors can earn Tzedakah money by participating in contests; watch, listen to, and submit videos and music; share Mitzvah project ideas; and use resources for planning their Bar/Bat Mitzvah such as the Jewish value and D’var Torah guides.
