Kambit blends social crowdfunding and online shopping in a way that allows nonprofits, companies, and individuals to create & support causes. Using Kambit, users can donate just by buying the things they’ve already budgeted for. A portion of user purchases is donated to help fund charities of the users choice, or projects created by the user, their church, or their school. There is no added cost to the user. Kambit is a new twist on fundraising; the money is raised through online shopping of the mass general public instead of through cash donations. Kambit is powered by new, groundbreaking Kambit Exchange Technology that has never been seen before. This new technology monetizes crowd activity on a project need basis.
Kambit is a web based product that combines Social Crowdfunding with Online Shopping. Fundraising projects of any kind can be created by users and funded through supporters online shopping. Kambit is approved by over 500 eRetailers including Amazon, Best Buy, iTunes, Buy.com, Office Depot, and Orbitz to promote them in return for a percentage fee of user transactions. Kambit sends half of these funds to user designated fundraising projects.

I was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas and met Kasey when we were in elementary school. I recently graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Masters in Accounting and a B.S.B.A. in Accounting and Finance. This past month I took and passed the CPA exam. I have been offered a job as a tax associate with Ernst & Young, but have chosen to pursue Kambit to the fullest. Kasey and I work extremely well together and compliment each other.
