How it works/Money Meter impact?

There are 3 types of Csnaps (Charity Snaps):

    • Fan Csnap Doing a quick Lifesaver Selfie forever captures something meaningful we did together, which is the most powerful fan experience the hearts will ever feel. The photo can be purchased, with funds going to the celeb’s charity of choice. Fans can simply ask to take a quick Lifesaver Selfie. The fans followers will now become the celebs’ new followers, as long as the celeb remembers to say Csnaps only, please. Quadruple your followers in months!

 

    • Celebrity ExclusivesIt breaks here first! Celebrities (or publicists on their behalf) break their exclusive news with a push of a button. In seconds, exclusive content is delivered to media outlets selling directly in 54 countries on 7 continents with proceeds going to the celeb’s charity of choice. The celeb’s instant ability to create and control their buzz at lightning speed, on their terms and with their consent, is imperative in optimizing their identity and fame. The paparazzi chase is over since you donated it away first!

 

    • Inspirie PostDon’t count your blessings, share them! An Inspirie™ post is sharing a Lifesaver Selfie and inspirational story about a loved one, place or event accompanying a small donation to the charity of your choice in the Csnaps Gratitude Lounge. Your post with images and story is then shared out to others where gratitude in the form of comments and add-on donations flow in from others. It’s that special genuine act of appreciation and thank you that everyone will always remember. A compelling story deserves a caring audience. It’s the purest form of showing gratitude.

 

“Share your inspiration and throw down some gratitude”

 

The Money Meter is literally what it sounds like: A meter that counts donations as they roll in for each charity. How do we keep this meter running, you ask?

  • Celebrities who adopt a “Csnaps only!” approach will drive charity donations through taking photos with fans in public or at Charity events (for a premium price). Fans can simply ask to take a quick Lifesaver Selfie a.k.a Fan Csnap.
  • Subsequent fan share-outs of the image will result in add-on donations and new Celebrity followers.
  • When Celebrities break exclusive news and images, and those images are sold and re-sold worldwide, the proceeds will progressively benefit charities year after year.
  • Those who donate Inspiries can share them out to friends and family, who may in turn add on donations and share to their own social media followers.
  • Users who donate Inspiries can also inspire others to do the same, starting their own giving movement.
