August 17, 2018

Have you seen those Facebook Birthday Fundraisers that your friends post when it's their birthday?

Facebook added a feature about a year ago that lets you ask for donations in lieu of presents and they are actually working!

A woman named Asha Sharma heads up Facebook's "Social Good" initiative and she revealed that all those fundraisers brought in $300 MILLION for charity in their first year.

The charities that have gotten the most money so far include St. Jude's Children's Hospital, the Alzheimer's Association, the American Cancer Society, No Kid Hungry, and the ASPCA.
