Socially Positive Discs

If you knew that you were paying 1 or 2 extra dollars for a disc, but the profit made was going directly to a charity; Would you feel more inclined to purchase one?

Would you want a custom stamp proving your support, or would you feel content knowing that you made a difference?

if i was in the store and there was stock stamps on one shelf. the one next to it for charity help. i would chose charity.

also custom stamp is recognizable and would help people remind of whatever charity it is. not really have it to brag, and show to others proving your a heartfelt person, but a nice reminder of why you bought that certain disc.

If I feel I inclined to support a charity, I'll do so directly...and then take the tax write off. I never add on to my purchases for charity.

Give without getting, a solid "gauge" to how much you support whatever cause it may be. I'm not saying adding a couple $$ to the price of a disc for charity can't help, but would you still give those $$$ if you weren't getting anything in return?

It's kinda like when the grocery store asks "would you like to add a dollar to your purchase to support ____". Not that I don't care I just always say "no".

I see what you're saying, but For-Profit businesses that make social differences, such as Sevenly, are becoming more and more popular. Basically it doesn't really matter why people are buying the product, it's if they are buying the product.

Probably not, but I suppose it depends on the charity. It could be considered a convenient way to contribute, but I generally prefer to keep my charitable donations separate from my business.

def depends on the charity.

also online not as much. i never buy discs online, but when i do its misprints and the cheapest ones i can find with free shipping. if i was in the store i have a much easier time throwing down an extra dollar. just my antics though, everyone is different.

I'd probably be more inclined to enter a tournament held specifically for the purpose of raising funds for the charity... don't ask me why, I just would.
