In only one year of existence, Facebook’s Causes application has raised $2.5 million for 19,445 different 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. Below are the top five Causes (according to # of members) on Facebook:

1. Support the Campaign for Cancer Research- 3,193,809 members- $63,570 donated

2. Stop Global Warming- 1,856,525 members - $23,340 donated

3. Animal Rights- 1,359,242 members - $23,095 donated

4. Society against child abuse- 1,053,451 members - $11,710 donated

5. Save Darfur- 875,963 members - $19,096 donated

So amazing! I guess Facebook is good for something besides sending people hatching eggs and zombie bites.

Facebook Fan Page Fun

After playing with peta2's Facebook fan page for the majority of my day today, I decided to browse all fan pages on Facebook to see the ranks of other non-profits.

Here are the top five:

1. (Red)- 62,964 fans

2. To Write Love On Her Arms- 47,465 fans

3. Rock the Vote- 34,927 fans

4. Greenpeace International- 30,953 fans

5. PETA- 30,067 fans

*My personal favorite, peta2, was ranked at #7 with 20,142 fans.

Pretty decent showing from the non-profs (even though Oreos outranked all of them with 64,539 fans)!
