ChumBonus Launches Charity Donation Program; Helps People Find Jobs and Makes Charity Donations Easy

More Than 10 National and Local Charities Join ChumBonus Charity Donation Program

ASHBURN, VA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2010) - ChumBonus (, an innovative employment site that encourages people to refer employment opportunities to friends, today announced its Charity Donation Program. As part of the program, ChumBonus referrers can donate all or a portion of their referral bonus to their favorite charities. In addition to referrer donations, ChumBonus also pledges 5% of the company's profit annually to its charity partners.

ChumBonus enables friends and family to refer candidates to potential jobs AND offers the referrer a bonus for participating in the process. As a ChumBonus referrer, anyone can search the site for job listings that match their "chum's" qualifications. With a click of a button, referrers can send a link to the job description to their chum. If interested, the chum applies for the job and, if hired, the referrer receives a designated referral bonus. Through its Charity Donation Partner Program, ChumBonus referrers can easily donate a portion of their referral bonus to a charity of their choice. There is no cost to the charity to participate in this program.

"ChumBonus believes in giving back to the community. Now, ChumBonus referrers are able to not only help friends find employment, but also donate to their favorite cause," states Barry Dwyer, co-founder of ChumBonus. "We founded ChumBonus to make a difference and create a job site where your network of friends and family can help you find a job, where they can earn a 'referral bonus' themselves and where together, we can help change lives. Our Charity Donation Program is another step to making a difference."

The ChumBonus Charity Donation Program launches with more than 10 charities already on board, including national and local organizations such as: The American Red Cross, World Wildlife Foundation, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, National Council on Aging and The United Way. Users of the system can suggest charities to add to the list of approved ones and can elect to send some or all their bonus to that charity.
