Bloson

Bloson is a social platform where users, non profits and companies converge to change the world for better.

Bloson lives by the principle of not wasting a single minute you spend online. With bloson users go about their normal day online - listening to music, watching TV shows or shopping - but while they do so, they are supporting and helping a social cause.

Users earn points whenever they share music or videos with their Facebook friends, buy products at bloson partner retailers among others. These points are later assigned to one of fifteen social causes that users choose to support, from Fighting Global Warning to Animal Welfare. At the end of each quarter, Bloson totals up all the points earned for each cause and makes a proportional donation to each cause.
