Go Daddy Checkout Option: “Round Up and Give to Hope for Haiti”

Go DaddyI was going through the checkout screen for a domain name (QueensDogWalker.com) this morning at Go Daddy, when I noticed an interesting option on the Order Summary tab asking me to “Round up and give to Hope for Haiti.” If you select this option, your total is rounded up to the nearest dollar and that amount is donated to Hope for Haiti. For instance, if you select this and your total is $7.67, it will be rounded up to $8.00, with a $.33 donation made to Hope for Haiti.

If you aren’t aware, Hope for Haiti is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization that has been helping with the Haiti earthquake recovery efforts. According to the Hope for Haiti website, the organization has a “mission to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly children, through education, nutrition, and healthcare.”

Interestingly, HopeForHaiti.com is the domain name for the organization that Go Daddy is helping, while HopeForHaiti.org appears to be another organization (whose website happens to be hosted by Go Daddy).

A couple of months ago, Brad Larson, my executive account representative at Go Daddy, made a trip to Haiti to help with the recovery efforts. I understand he had a powerful and meaningful trip, and it’s nice to see that Go Daddy is helping out this organization. In June of 2010, the company sent Hope for Haiti a check for $500,000.

  1. Elliot,
    With the Dogwalker site, you have subscription/directory software collecting the contact info. Is that a generic package or did you have a programmer write script from scratch?

    They have no elephants. So was it dogs, cats, dolphins…?


  3. Recently had a chance to donate a measly 15 cents. But it felt good doing it. I’ve seen the work they do from the shipping side of things, and know how much it’s appreciated.
