Vote With Your Dollars

CottBot is a values-driven boycott management tool for ethical consumers, community and non-profit organizations to expose business and charity agendas that undermine your core principals.

CottBot uses a social-network model to collect and distribute important information between members who share your values. This allows you to make informed decisions on where your money goes and what your money does after it has left your pocket. This increases your economic impact on the issues you care most about while curtailing your money being funneled into agendas that attack you.

On Monday, March 24th, CottBot is launching a crowd-funding campaign for startup and development on a world-class application that will:

  • Let you see the businesses and charities in your community that support your causes
  • Expose businesses and charities that attack your core values
  • Provide you with alternative businesses to buy the things you want and need
  • Warn you when you enter an unfriendly business before you spend your money
  • Let you warn socially-minded citizens about a harmful business or charity
  • Warn you about harmful products you may encounter while you patronize a business
CottBot will be freely available on all major smart-phone devices and desktop web browsers and will be solely supported by its members through a voluntary "pay what you want" model, like Wikipedia and Disconnect. CottBot will be advertising free.

Help CottBot succeed by donating your facebook and/or twitter feed for a single message broadcast on March 24th. Help us get the word out and help us fund this important civil technology.

I am very concerned about what happens to my money once it leaves my pocket. I do what I can to make ethical consumer choices, but it is hard work to research and collect timely and relevant information. And harder yet to keep all that information handy when I need it most. After Arizona passed its "Religious Freedom to Discriminate" bill, a boycott of the entire state of Arizona was called for. I felt that reaction would be ultimately self-defeating since it would economically deprive our allies fighting against this mentality on the front lines. We need to continue to support our allies while boycotting with surgical precision those who seek to undermine us. Thus, the CottBot idea was born.
