Short, concise description of the idea
Send a gift of a spoon to recipient's chosen charity

Full description of the idea
It's two-fold. First bit is easy: add a spoon as one of the gift options. Google "spoons" for reasons why an extra spoon could be useful. Second bit is more difficult: for every "spoon" sent, donate a portion of the fee to the recipient's chosen charity. Each user should select a charity in their profile or when a spoon is received.

An ordered list of benefits
  • 1) Recipient gets warm, fuzzy feeling that someone cares about their present spoon-deprived situation. Extra spoons help them cope through the rough days.
  • 2) Charities benefit from pennies each time a spoon is sent. It could amount to a few quid at least
  • 3) Livejournal is seen to be receptive and responsive to people issues and gains a few more pennies for their coffers when a spoon is purchased.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Channelling funds to various charities.
  • Getting account holders to choose their charity (on profile page?)
  • Cost of administration
  • Cost of promotion/advertising
