People raise money for charity in a number of crazy ways; jumping from planes, climbing mountains, swimming channels, you name it. But how far is too far? Two graduates from Colorado State University have launched a new startup which is harnessing technology and believe it or not, people’s libidos, for charitable good.
Benevidz is an online webcam community where users access a livestream of a man or woman stripping and pay money for them to perform specific sex acts. It works much like a standard porn site except some of the money raised goes to charity.
The startup is crowdfunding on Rockethub and has currently raised $500 of its $15,000 goal. According to Benevidz, seven “reputable charity organisations” have already shown their interest. Could this be the next big thing in fundraising?
