The Giftobit Foundation – Be Rewarded for Giving

During my week of uncontrollable sobbing crying, one of the things I had to say goodbye to as I moved my life from Canberra to the Whitsunday Islands were the charities I worked with. No more donning the cheffies to hang out with my bestie to cook up a storm or rattling the collection bucket at foodie festivals. It kind of left a hole….

With so many deserving charities out there I knew it wouldn’t be long before I found something that touched my heart. I want to be involved, but because I suspect there may be a gypsy living within me and more travel and adventures in my future, I had to find a project with a global feel to it and donate regularly, as giving back is really important to me.

My ventures in the online world have led me to some pretty cool places, but The Giftobit Foundation really struck a cord with me as it’s a fun concept that creates an income for you of which 25% has to be donated to the charity of your choice.

The Giftobit Foundation is a (NFP) not for profit, non-religious and non-political international NGO (Non-Government Organisation) and the brainchild of a couple of Aussies, Carlene and her son Daniel Spiteri. They are both very passionate about their vision and hold a strong sense of purpose and belief that no one should be living in poverty in this day and age. Happy Dancing to THAT!!!

Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.comAt the heart of their work is a commitment to community-led, sustainable development projects, and a belief in the power of a team working together to create real impact and change. There are currently 24 amazing projects that fit in under The Giftobit Foundation’s website that only support a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ approach, so I knew this one was a good fit for what I want to achieve.

Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.comIt costs around $75.00 Aussie dollars to get involved and the whole program actually works with a new type of global digital currency, Bitcoin, but more about that another time. The best bit is I don’t have to find money out of my budget when I want to donate anymore, as Giftobit will create a whole new income stream just for me when it gets pumping. The Scrooge McDucky side of me perked up her little head there with the “creates an income for you” bit.

While I was doing all my research into The Giftobit Foundation, I was majorly impressed with the income generating matrix side of how Giftobit actually works, but I confess to only understanding it in the same way I understand how a car runs or the internet works! I decided it was a mathematical marvel and love that our world has people in it like Carlene and Daniel Spiteri who can create such wonders that literally help everyone involved.

I’ll write more about my involvement with The Giftobit Foundation regularly as my position in the system starts to earn and I can start donating regularly.

So tell me dear reader, do you like The Giftobit Foundation idea of earning and giving all at the same time? Tell me about a charity or community led project you are a part of? And how are you giving back in 2017?

I love how you have presented GiftoBit. 🙂 I too adore the concept and vision. It resonates at many levels. There is so much passion behind it from those who created it and those who are behind it. GiftoBit has huge potential to be a true gift to humanity.

Thank you x

What a fascinating concept! I hope it catches on–there is way too much poverty in this world!

You’ve captured the essence of GiftoBit beautifully Anna! The owners’ integrity and transparency, along with philanthropic opportunities, is what had me join the GiftoBit family. The crypto currency education and income were icing on the cake!

Sounds very interesting Anna! Will wait to hear more about how you find it! 😀

Giftobit sounds like a fabulous organization. I’m a huge supporter of teaching sustainability. Goes back to the whole “teaching a person how to fish” thing. Thanks for introducing it to me and others. For 2017 I hope to be able to get more involved with the local food bank. I’ve contributed to it for many years, but now that I am semi-retired, I have more time to do more. With the beautiful weather we have here, we have a lot of homeless and many are families which is very sad.

I really feel good about the gifting part of Giftobit. As I receive money for myself and my family, I also give to my chosen philanthropic projects. I feel richly rewarded when I give to those less fortunate than I am. Join us in changing the world bit by bit.

Have a beautiful day dear.

I have been involved with Giftobit from the beginning. It’s an awesome opportunity to not only help those in need across the world but also a way to make additional income by sharing with others. I love when income and giving come together.

Hi Anna
Great post.

Love the idea of the ‘hand up, hand out’ approach. When it comes to donating and giving back to the community, it should be that way – approach with compassion and kindness, putting others before self. It is also great to see how The Giftobit Foundation are transparent about what they do and are happy to share all round – online and in the real world too through the activities they do. I’ve actually never been a part of a charity due to financial limitations. But now that life has been a bit more stable, I am certainly looking at giving back to the community one step at a time. Lots of hugs and love to you, Miss Anna! xoxo

I love that your talking about Giftobit. I think it’s a really fantastic idea and expect it to really take off. Imagine that…. getting paid to donate.

As much as love to give, I used to hate the never ending request for donations to really worthy charities when I was in the corporate world…. it really ads up. This is such a novel idea to “get paid to donate”. Love it.
