(Benelab Offline) HYDRAVE [$900.00]
Hydrave Check
Every year, King's HS in Seattle, WA hosts a Spring informal dance in April for its students. This year, Benelab partnered with King's Student Government to host a charitable dance, raising money to drill a freshwater well through sister organization World Concern! Although King's is a small private school with a small student population, we were able to raise $900 in 2 hours! For more info, read this blog post.

We donated a total of $400 to one of our favorite organizations, World Concern, to provide 8 children with full school tuitions for a year! Our funds will go directly towards paying teacher salaries, as well as school supplies.

June 2012 - Changes for New Hope [$360.00]

This was our fourth donation, and we decided to continue raising funds to provide educational microloans to students who want to go to college. We raised $210, and we'll be donating it to Vittana. Next month, we're shooting for $400 to another charity!

(Benelab Offline) BeneDRIVE [788 cans, ~$800]
January Check
This was our first Offline work, a next-level canned food drive at King's HS (our school)! In one week, we raised 788 cans, all 850 pounds of food, in a school with only 600 students. All of it was donated to Food Lifeline, a hunger relief organization. More details here.

January 2012 - Vittana [$130.35]
January Check
Our third donation so far! The $130 we raised will go towards providing educational microloans to students who want to go to college. The search query numbers are steadily climbing!

December 2011 - Pilgrim Africa [$80.00]
December Check
This was our second monthly donation since launch, and it's almost double the month before! We're continuing to grow, and so are our donation amounts. The more users the more we'll able to give!

November 2011 - Charity:Water [$46.53]
November Check
This was our very first check from the first month of our website going live to the public. It's not a million dollars, but it's still amazing that it was all generated purely from website use.

Keep an eye out for the next one!
