Donate the hate

Donate the hate, turning hate-comments into involuntary donations for refugees and against the far right. The internet is currently overflowing with racist and xenophobic comments. We’ve got something against this. A very simple idea. We present: DONATE THE HATE - the first ever involuntary online charity initiative. The idea behind it: for every misanthropic comment, we make a DONATION OF 1 EURO. To refugee projects run by the ‘Aktion Deutschland Hilft’ campaign and ‘EXIT-Deutschland’, an initiative against right-wing extremism.

This way, the haters and the trolls are making a donation against their own cause. A bit of a catch-22 for them, probably. The funds we use to turn hate comments into involuntary donations are being provided by our fantastic partners and supporters. Through this, we set a united example of human dignity and a tolerant Germany.

DtH based on the idea of Nazis against Nazis. For the implementation, we have designed a microsite and set up a Facebook page, which is the center. With the Facebook page, registered users can make semiautomated, via an interface, hate comments into involuntary donations. For this purpose we and our partners, have designed and programmed an APP, which makes the commentary possible via an API interface. On the microsite can be found some commented hate comments as well as a top ten involuntary donators. All anonymous. Donations for the action coming from Partneren as: Radio Stations, Newspapers and television stations. Facebook also supports the campaign.
