MySurvey Newsletter for December

December 17th, 2007

The December edition of Opinion Matters, the monthly newsletter of MySurvey.com, has been released to the membership and is now available here for your perusal. This month’s issue is relatively short, focusing primarily on the issue of charitable donations.

If you would like to join the panel, you can do so for free by clicking on the banner below. Each completed survey will yield a certain number of points that can be redeemed for cash. Minimum payout threshold is 1000 points = $10. Cash payments are made by check, but it is also possible to redeem for various prizes. As this newsletter indicates, you may also donate your points to a variety of charitable organizations if you are so inclined.

‘Tis the Season For Giving

The holiday season is usually hailed as a time for giving, not just to friends and families, but in support of charities and others less fortunate. For MySurvey.com members, the season for giving is 365 days each year; that’s how often members donate their Reward Points to charity.

The point donations add up. Between the beginning of January and the beginning of December 2007, over $30,000 in Reward Points were donated to our charity partners.

Because the holiday season is special for the children in our lives, we’d like to highlight our charity partners that focus on the needs of children:

* Make a Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

* Save the Children’s mission is to create lasting positive change in the lives of children in need.

* “I Have a Dream”® has provided long-term educational support to children from low-income communities for the past 25 years.

For more on these worthy organizations (and to learn about our other charity partners), please visit our Charity Partners page. If you would like to donate Reward Points to one of our partners, log into MySurvey.com, click on Rewards (top menu), then click on Select Reward (side menu). Click the Charity Donations button and then select the organization to which you’d like to donate your points.

On behalf of our charity partners, we thank MySurvey.com members for their generous contributions!
