IZEA is proud to announce the release of a new feature in SocialSpark that allows bloggers to quickly and easily raise money for charities called SocialSpark Causes. Causes allow bloggers to support non-profit organizations in two ways:
Join A Cause
Bloggers can add a non-profit to the list of Causes they support by clicking the join button on a individual Cause profile. By joining a Cause the blogger is able to easily donate the money they earn through SocialSpark Opportunities on a case by case basis.
Each cause features a donate now button which allows bloggers and advertisers to donate money from their account balance at any time.
Open to All Non-Profits
The SocialSpark Causes program is designed to help non-profits leverage the power of the blogosphere to both spread the word and raise money. The program is free and available to all non-profit organizations with a 501(c)(3) designation. Causes can apply for creation of a profile and verification of their status by creating a SocialSpark profile and clicking the apply button. SocialSpark currently has 7 charities listed and hopes to reach 100 by the end of 2008.

SocialSpark is a Social Marketing Network that connects advertisers and bloggers through an online advertising marketplace. Advertisers are able to target blogs based on conversational topics and make cash sponsorship offers to the bloggers who publish them. Bloggers can make money by either placing display advertisements on their blog or by writing sponsored content. The sponsorships offered through the SocialSpark marketplace allow advertisers to build buzz, generate traffic and maximize social media exposure.
