CBS launches multi-screen fundraising initiative

CBS EcoMedia has launched ‘Viewers to Volunteers,’ or V2V, a new multi-screen initiative that empowers people to give to a charity of their choice without spending their own money.

V2V offers viewers an online destination to watch videos and read articles that further a good cause. When viewers watch or share these advertiser-sponsored videos via their smartphones, tablets or computers, they help direct real-life financial contributions to charity.

Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation, said: “Viewers to Volunteers is a digital giving platform bringing together media, advertising and philanthropy in an interesting new way, opening doors to viewers at any income level looking to make a difference. We are excited about all that V2V can do to benefit the nation’s leading charities, our advertisers and our viewers.”

Paul Polizzotto, President and Founder, CBS EcoMedia added:“The launch of Viewers to Volunteers builds on the core mission of CBS EcoMedia, which is to improve the quality of people’s lives. I’m confident that V2V will have a profound impact not only in how people support causes, but also in how some of our nation’s most effective and marquee nonprofits are funded.”
