This year hasn’t been without its challenges; giving many of us extra cause for pause as we enter the festive season. Microsoft’s Nicole Stamos, Marketing Manager of Microsoft Bing and Microsoft Rewards discusses.
As we reflect on our lives, we consider all that we are thankful for, including the broader communities we live in. Considering contributing to causes you care about this year? Microsoft Advertising makes it easy with the Microsoft Rewards feature, Give with Bing.
For those who are not yet familiar, Give with Bing is a feature of Microsoft Rewards.
Microsoft Rewards lets you earn points simply by searching on Microsoft Bing, and Give with Bing allows you to automatically donate those points to a cause you care about.
Simply sign in or join here, set the nonprofit you’d like your points to automatically be donated to, and search on Microsoft Bing so you can make a difference without opening your wallet!
If you’re an existing Rewards member, you can visit the same link to see your total giving impact to date, as well as to change your default nonprofit if you find a different cause nearer to your heart.
Our goal with Give with Bing is to empower our members to make a difference and they have, with just a small change to something they do every day, adding up to something meaningful.
Thanks to our members, we have succeeded; to date Give with Bing has been a part of member-driven donations to over 36,000 nonprofits in eight countries worldwide!
These donations have already driven great impact in thousands of nonprofits around the world. Our Microsoft Rewards members have points valued at over $14 million (AUD) for these nonprofit organisations, and we are excited to see how much more money we can donate!
We couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks a million for your support, and we look forward to being the search engine that gives back!
