By the end of the year 2017, it’s up to you to organize everything for the party of the New Year's Day. But for the meal preparations and courses, you will not certainly have time to run around to get money from your dinner guests’ participation. This is the reason why the use of an online jackpot is going to solve all your problems and save you the crazy time!

To be easily able to raise money is very simple: you create your jackpot by personalizing and choosing the theme (anniversary, marriage, departure etc.), you invite your friends (via the social networks or by e-mail) so that they can participate (it is the same purpose) and finally, you use the money. You can also make it on these sites:

On Le pot commun, three possibilities are offered to you:


  •          or you decide to use the money by going shopping on their partner sites


  •          or you decide to transfer the jackpot to the person who celebrates their anniversary


  •          or you decide to get back the money by asking for a bank transfer of your account

On Leetchi, the use and the way of proceeding are the same: you create, invite and offer to the lucky young people. Launched in 2009, the company also suggests participating in "solidarity jackpots". In fact, many organizations, associations or young start-ups create public common pots on the Internet to probably get some money more easily and have a little bit of help to soar, exactly as the sites of crowd-funding.

Even the site assures to add a macaroon stipulating the check of the solidarity jackpots, the attention on the swindles which can be present. Do not hesitate to look at if the creator of the jackpot possesses the accounts on the social networks, if the association was already mentioned in the press or even if the organizer answers messages in comments.

Finally, to use the collected money, you can, just like precede the site:


  •          or buying a present on the partner sites of Leetchi



  •          or offering the jackpot to the lucky

In fact, in addition to accompanying you in your collection, Colleo offers you, when your jackpot is ended, to repay a small party of the participations collected to a solidarity project which has already existed on the site. And if, besides using a way to facilitate your life, would you try to facilitate life to another person in need?

Concerning the expenses, Colleo pays by taking 2% of commission on your collection. And in order that all the jackpots participate a minimum in the solidarity projects, 0.50€ will be used to be repaid to an association of your choice. Of course, you can increase this amount.
