[Infographic] What Could You Buy with $150 Million?
There's a big beautiful number on display right now, on BiddingForGood’s Goodometer™ - $150 million. We’ve now helped schools, nonprofits, and charities across the U.S. raise more than $150 million for their good causes!
The Goodometer is a dynamic display on our homepage that shows, minute by minute, how much money schools and nonprofits have raised by running online auctions on our platform. Helped by the bidders who shop on our site, and by the socially responsible business partners that donate products and services to help our clients, the 6,200+ organizations that have partnered with us to run online auctions have raised real dollars that have real impact.
$150 million is a really big number. And sometimes, the best way for us (well, me, I confess) to wrap our (my) head around a really big number is to think in terms of tangible, graspable nuggets. For example, our CEO, Jon Carson, lets us know each month how much we’ve helped to raise for our customers, not only by communicating a total dollar figure, but he does the math (he’s really good at that) and tells us the average amount per employee.
But enough about my innumeracy and Jon Carson’s ability to cut through it. We want you to know just how much impact $150 million can have. So we created a nifty Infographic, to illustrate the impact that this amount of money has in the real world. What would you spend $150 million on?
