Join us in sharing this news and gift.  Charity Engine likes to share...

We already paid out tens of thousands of dollars in charity donations and prize draws - and donated over 35 years of computing time to malaria research.  

We could not do this without the spare computing power from Charity Engine participants like you, so thank you.

As a token of our appreciation from Charity Engine to you we share... http://charityengine.wetransfer.com/

Hmmm, more computer users = more money raised for charity.  What could we do to make the cats to add their computers (or their owner's computers) to Charity Engine?

Should we give out catnip filled mice, shine laser pointers on the keyboards so they install the software, or do you have a better idea?  Post your comments below.

Happy  #caturday !
 
The computer cat has been busy making posts all day for #caturday ;)

Hi Charity Engine! I am one of 50 who have raised over half a million for a charity called Hands Across the Water, helping the children of Thailand move forward. Every dollar that is donated goes to the children. Directors and volunteers alike fund all their own expenses and not a drop is spent on administration or fund raising. I am hoping you could support me by sharing this one link.... even maybe on your facebook site.... http://youtu.be/_bPUv6dNgOE

This is a Chillblast Fusion Thunderbird, an awesome gaming PC worth nearly $2000.  Win a new computer to help charities even more... why not?!?

And we're giving one away THIS WEEK...!  Have you joined the Charity Engine?

Our first real post on Google+!  Getting to know Charity Engine... our charity partners ensure your computer only computes ethical tasks.  The money generated by the tasks are distributed to charity and fuel the drawing you are entered for each credit earned.

On Facebook we have over 500,000 likes... help us find our supporters on Google+ with a +1, reshare, or another method showing your support.

Care
+Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières
+Amnesty International UK 
+Sightsavers

See http://www.charityengine.com/charities for more on our charity partners.

Cool Fact:
When there is surplus capacity we give away computing power to research projects so we do not waste a bit of computing time.  We garuntee at least 5% of computing time for researchers.  The current research projects are listed here: http://www.charityengine.com/charities/research

New v7 of the CE app is now live - enables GPU support and does 5x-10x more useful computing than before.

Also means it earns you 5x-10x more prize draw entries... Go get it!

+Pierre van Rooyen we discovered that a select group of users were not being properly entered and worked to resolve this.  Most have been added and a few may not be in this drawing so their uncounted credits roll over to the next drawing.  See: http://www.charityengine.com/news/article/updated-list-entries and the  latest news http://www.charityengine.com/news

Are you participating?

The entire planet is turning into a supercomputer to help charities, businesses, and research is happening now.  People like you are adding laptops, desktops, and servers to Charity Engine every day.

In the coming years we could be adding the millions of other home electronic devices as an option to contribute while plugged in for charging or charging wirelessly.  

Smartphones, Tablets, or Smart TV's are just the beginning.  The possibilities are endless.  With the help of +Android Developers we could make Charity Engine on +Android devices a reality.

A new winner is being selected... the first drawing winner was the boss of a PC gaming company, so he's very generously turned down the prize of this awesome gaming PC, the Chillblast Fusion Thunderbird.

The prize draw is therefore happening again immediately. 

The winning number will be announced within 48 hours.

Good luck - and thanks for your support!

We are 99% the way to the next drawing for Charity Engine participants... meaning more money for charity and a chance for you to win a prize too.  There is still time join for this drawing. 

Charity Engine harnesses your idle Mac, PC, and/or Linux machines for social good.

What motivates you the most? The charity, the drawing, or the research. (+1 your choice in the comments below)

Story
Tagline
changing the world one bit at a time.
Introduction

The world's two billion PCs are now so fast, they spend most of their time asleep. It's a huge waste of computing power.

The Charity Engine app allows unlimited home PCs to work together on giant computing problems during their spare time, when they have nothing else to do. One PC can't do much by itself, but 100,000 PCs can beat a supercomputer.

The result is a very large, eco-friendly computing grid made entirely from unused computing power that was simply being wasted. Ethical scientists and companies hire the grid and profits are shared 33-33-33 between the users (in the form of prize draws), Charity Engine itself, and nine major international charities - hence the name. 

Check out a video on how we work.
