However, this Facebook Fundraiser feature allows you to raise money for a Non-profit organisations. Cool right?

How To Use Facebook birthday donations Feature

But here is how the Facebook Birthday fundraiser works; two weeks before your birthday, Facebook will ask you if you want to dedicate your birthday to support a cause. If you agree you can pick from one of 750,000 non-profit organizations, currently limited to the United States, and set a donation goal. On your birthday, your friends will be notified of your cause.

Facebook Birthday fundraiser

Though asking someone to support a cause on your birthday is not a new practice, but integrating it directly into Facebook’s platform is a clever move. After all, everybody has a birthday, and raising money for a non-profit is something people might not have thought of without being prompted. It’s simple to set up and makes people feel good about themselves.

This Facebook features could actually makes a difference in ones live. Even if only a few of your friends donate, its still something. The non-profit organizations will definitely be receiving something, instead of nothing. Which is far more better than random messages you will get on that day.

According to TheNextWeb, In addition, Facebook is also rolling out birthday videos. The idea is that close friends will have specially made videos showcasing your time together – much like Facebook’s other videos. It’s not clear how Facebook determines what a ‘close friend’ is, but it will at least go a bit beyond an empty ‘hbd.’
