San Clemente, CA, September 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Southern California-based Koomkey.com has developed a micro crowdfunding portal for content providers with a presence across social media. Launched on July 1, 2013, Koomkey is the first and only website that allows unsolicited cash to be sent to anyone via Twitter.
Koomkey is founded on the belief that a community of givers can be built from the global network of two billion social media users. Koomkey's social currency is called a "Kashkey," in denominations of $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, and $10.00.
The philosophy behind the smaller values of the monetary donations is ground-breaking. Koomkey encourages social media users to embrace the message of, "small change supports big plans."
Since launching, new users have been attracted to Koomkey’s service by witness of the creative ways in which Kashkeys have helped friends and colleagues within shared networks. Koomkey founder, Joseph Lacko, thinks of it this way: "Every day, people follow their favorite social media accounts, and share their own opinions and compelling content--without giving a second thought to what their efforts are actually worth. Koomkey provides a way for the everyday Twitter user to recognize the work that goes into each entertaining tweet, with a little cash."
Signing up is as easy as logging in at www.koomkey.com with a valid Twitter user name and password. Giving and claiming a Kashkey is done with a simple click of a button. Funds may be forwarded as a cash donation to anyone on Twitter who informs, entertains, or inspires. Alternatively, money may be directed to a user's bank account.
“The obvious action we can take is to support charities, help out a friend, and reward artists, musicians or writers we admire," Lacko explains. "Koomkey serves the immediate need of anyone who could use cash funds today to meet a goal, satisfying a niche unserved by other crowdfunding platforms. However, I created Koomkey for a less obvious purpose. There are two billion active social media users on earth. If each one of those people were to send just $0.25, there would be $500M floating within social media, accessible to all users equally. In that moment, we all can understand the power of giving to one another.”
Koomkey’s vision is for $0.25 Kashkeys to become as common as a “Like,” or a retweet.
Please contact Koomkey to receive a complimentary Kashkey, and experience how connections are made by the simple act of giving.
Joseph Lacko is available for interview to discuss how Koomkey can support artistic, charitable, and educational projects. To learn more about Koomkey, and to request a media packet, please call:
