GROWBY Charity

There is too much doom and gloom in this world already, mostly of our own doings. Instead of moaning and groaning about it, let us all do something about it. We shall each contribute our own little bits, which hopefully, will accumulate into something significant.

GROWBY is committed to allocate her profits amongst three major areas only: charity, corporate growth and shareholder (which, hopefully, should consist of mostly employees - see GROWBY Community) dividend.

But we want every donation to be a worthwhile endeavor. So that is why we shall eventually set up a Charity Foundation to help in worthy causes. It is an ambitious goal. For now, we will have to be content with starting off small, beginning with the GROWBY Membership drive. Then we will develop and popularize the GROWBY site to generate profits, which shall become the continuous source of fund for our GROWBY Charity Foundation.

Some of the charitable projects we are proposing:

[2002] Transitional Program

Design a transitional program to assist the homeless, street people, drug addicts, handicaps, the mentally disabled, etc., to clean up their acts, to overcome their difficulty, to learn an employable skill, to get a job, and to be independent again.

[2002] Volunteer Program

Set up a system to match up those who want to help, with those who need help, based on assistance requirement categories, personality, location, and time, etc. See our Self-Help Station

[2002] School Lunch Program

Children who go to school hungry cannot learn well. Sponsor breakfast and lunch programs so that school kids in low income families would be provided the much needed sustenance.

[2003/02] Recycling Program

Propose a funding mechanism to support entrepreneurs with innovative ideas on manufacturing products, using recycled materials. e.g.

[2003/02] Habitat for Humanity

Support and sponsor this wonderful project which allow low-income people to labor for their own home, with the assistance of donated building material, volunteer contractors, etc.


Our Unconventional Rationale

The trouble with the puritan approach is: it doesn't pay very much. Supposing we make this a purely non-profit charity site, we would definitely attract a lot less traffic, thus less sponsors, thus less revenue, thus less donation for charity. Take Robin Hood as our analogy: he led the life of a thief. But since he robbed the rich to pay the poor, he was worshipped as a hero. The end justifies the means. We want more donations to charity, implying more sponsors, implying more traffic, implying more attractions for maximum audience, implying both profit and non-profit endeavors.

Bill Gate donates millions to charity (while we would have to do it a dollar at a time). Granted, they are merely a few drops from his huge bucket. But what the heck, money is money. The amount is more than what most can afford, regardless, with all their loving hearts thrown in.
