Use tokens like you're casting a "vote". You receive 5 free tokens every time you log in.
Purchase donation "chits" in $5, $10, and $20 increments. Distribute your donations in $1 to $5 increments (for one or more nonprofits.) Like tokens, each donation chit tallies as a vote of support for a particular nonprofit.
Art purchases are donations too. Sales proceeds are distributed to the artist and the nonprofit and HELPS-AUSTIN pays transaction costs and sales tax. The artist designates the nonprofit to receive a share of the sales proceeds. The dollar amount going to the nonprofit is matched with an equal number of tokens.
