Save the world!!!!

I stumbled upon some pictures on instagram the other day, and after a little research I found the site source. I've already ordered one and plan on ordering more. Its for a great cause so I figured I would share with the e46 family. Each watch helps a different cause. $45 dollars is nothing for us, but can mean the world for others. check it out

Hmmm so it's like Tom's shoes but for watches and donates in multiple ways...I like it.

Would like to see in person of course..I don't think I'm hip enough to wear a watch that looks like that

Yeah, it seems there are more and more companies following this model. Not a bad idea, assuming the funds that are supposed to go to charities are being managed properly--i.e. the co. isn't taking a huge % for "operational costs" or what not.

Always comes down to this. I am a full supporter of charitable organizations but hate when it comes out that at the end of the day only a small percentage of what we think is "donated" makes its way to the end user; those individuals in need.

I agree it may not be the coolest...but its 40 bucks, and for a great cause. I spend that much on stupid sh!t all the time.
Also the donation part, of course we can hope they are getting as much help as possible, but any help is better than none.

Nice.. Love stuff like this.

I'm a huge 10 tree clothing fan... Buy an item, and they plant 10 trees. Pretty simple.

Yes, hippy stuff.

Nice idea but I'd like to know exactly how much goes to the charity. Their FAQ claims they have metrics for it and are completely transparent..but no hard figures.

How do you know your $40 will go to the cause you think it's going?
Have you checked with any of those beneficiaries? How many pennies of your $40 do they receive?
Gullibility is a bitch.

I bought a watch the other day, you've probably never heard of them.

Your right how do we know. It comes from the heart and intention to help the needy. That's all I can really do and hope they are receiving what is said. Like I stated earlier, any help is better than none

This guy would be a crony capitalist. Thinks just like one.

Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

As divided as this country is, at least we are one.

My right? Or my left?
There is a lot more that you can do.
Your intention may be good hearted, but your execution sucks. It's because of gullible people like you that we have so many scams in this society.
If you want to benefit the Cancer Society, just write a check to the Cancer Society. As a token of our (societal) appreciation, you get to write that off your taxes.
You chose to write your check to the watch maker because you wanted a watch. Their claim that you're benefiting the Cancer Society is the hook to sell more watches. You use that to justify your purchase and make yourself fell better: you didn't selfishly buy a watch for yourself... you helped someone with cancer. Yeah, right.
