If you think you’re too small to make an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.
A bit of Carrot news for a change. CarrotPay has launched CarrotBid on Facebook. CarrotBid is an application which raises funds for good causes whilst demonstrating how easy it is to make micropayments, using CarrotPay’s Web Purse and WebCoins.
CarrotBid is a lowest bid auction. For the uninitiated this is a style of auction where the winner is the person who makes the lowest unique bid. Eg. A current CarrotBid auction is for a Sony Vaio laptop EB Series with a retail value of US$1129. If the bids are in the range of, say $0.01 to $5.98 and the lowest unique bid is $0.28, then this is the price that the bidder pays to secure the laptop. Bids cost 10 cents each with the bids being hidden from other bidders.
The first sponsor is Sennheiser whose generosity will help maximise the amounts raised for good causes such as Save the Children, Kid’s Company and Habitat for humanity. To help users familiarise themselves with the bidding process, all first time users are receiving 10 free bids.
Check it out on the CarrotPay page on Facebook. Try it out with your free bids and help raise funds for the causes which we are supporting and not forgetting, if you like what you see tell your friends.
The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution.
