Ever wonder how you can ramp up your charitable-giving efforts? Monica Oxenreiter, a 16-year-old in Pittsburgh, might provide some inspiration.
People who give $100 to the nonprofit Oxenreiter started can “buy” their ZIP code — and, on a bright-yellow map on her website that details donations nationwide, that ZIP code turns lime-green.
That’s the ingenious idea behind Oxenreiter’s Zip the Cure, a nonprofit she created to generate contributions for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, or JDRF. See ZiptheCure.com.
