One-Click Charity Check acts as watchdog for free donation sites
LAS VEGAS, Nevada - April 14, 2001 - One-Click Charity Check was launched in mid-March, 2001, to help users sort through the increasing number of one-click style free donation sites on the Internet.
It is run by a former technology journalist who doesn't like press releases full of buzzwords and useless trivia.
So here are the facts:
Owner: Kimberly Chapman (http://kimberlychapman.com for more information)
Purpose: to review one-click charities against a set of detailed criteria, which are posted at http://kimberlychapman.com/charitycheck/criteria.html.
Grading: sites that pass critical criteria (such as confirmation that the beneficiary is receiving the money) get a letter grade of either A+, A, B, or C. Those grades are based on passing other categories of criteria. Sites that fail to meet any critical criterion are rated "Not Recommended."
Review Process: is underway. A few reviews are up now, with more being posted each week. Sites will be re-reviewed approximately every six months.
The owner will happily participate in interviews by phone or email. The phone number has not been made public, as it is a residential number. Anyone interested in phoning should email first to request the phone number and to set up an appropriate interview time. Calls that are not preceded by email will not be appreciated. Calls outside of 11 am and 5 pm US Pacific Time without being previously scheduled will also not be appreciated.
