I would say that emails from Google Alerts (on my own name or brands) have a pretty high click through rate for me. It must be upwards of 70% because I want to know what people are saying about me or the brands I represent. This is similar to the "tagged" emails as they are doing the same thing to your image on Facebook.

Cheers,
Jesse

Hey, the boat was awesome!  That's the reason I got one. :)  We'll have to take a trip again sometime next spring.  Thank you very much for everything.

Thanks a lot Brian.  We're super psyched and I'm sure we'll get the chance to hang out again soon.  AND you can come visit us in NYC.

You know we'll miss you too!  Thank you for your well wishes and I'm sure we'll be seeing you before we go (and we'll be back to visit).

Thanks so much Jonny.  I'm sure we won't regret the move.  It'll just be hard at first.  We're super psyched though!

We're sorry you missed it to. I'll have to check out Cut Off Your Hands a bit later. Don't want to disturb the guy sitting in front of me.

Wow! I would have never thought of that but paying someone to rally in your place is quite a concept. Not sure how many would put their necks on the line (and get arrested) but it could definitely raise some eyebrows.

Ian,
These are great points. I'm not trying to negate the need for true volunteering but I am trying to create small jobs for people who may be unemployed, under paid and those who have free time. In addition, the largest group I'd like to see give money is not "Mr. TooBusy", but the small and large businesses in the area that may or may not have had to lay off people.

If I make $14/hour and I work 40 hours/week my company pays around $760/week including benefits (if they offer one of the lowest Aetna Health Plans). If they had to lay off one other person and me ($1520/week savings) because times are hard, they may be willing to spend $200/week towards a non-profit that would in turn help to "employ" people who have otherwise been put out.

That $200/week from that business is chump change to them (as they just saved a whole lotta loot) but at $10/hour, that could employ someone, who is otherwise S.O.L., 20 hours per week, give them experience in a field they enjoy and assist those who are helped by the charities they are "volunteering" for.

In a perfect world, this isn't necessary but there are too many charities that go under-helped and too many people who are under-support by those charities and too many others who are unemployed.

This is just another way of looking at it.

I will definitely reach out to Jordan to find out what he's working on. I have heard small bits and pieces about it but I should get some more details.

In addition I feel like this could be setup just as a one-to-one pairing system to begin with. No man-in-the-middle service even necessary to see if there is a need and desire for it.
