YOUR BEANS HELP PEOPLE

You play our online quizzes to collect delicious beans.

I donate to charities based on the amount of beans collected.

Together we'll help out the less fortunate in our communities.

BEANS DONATED SO FAR:

Lots of people ask: do you actually donate beans? I used to think that was the best way to do things, but it makes much more sense to simply convert the amount of digital beans collected by players into a dollar amount. This dollar amount is then donated to charity.

Since charities can purchase food at wholesale prices, this is a much more efficient way of giving than by actually bringing in beans to a food bank. For example, Feeding America can fund 10 full meals for only $1!

However, food aid for developing countries often hurts much more than it helps by decimating local farming economies. That's why I never donate to international food aid charities, instead focusing on US-based food banks, natural disaster relief efforts, and other assorted charities.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you actually donate beans?

No, the beans are just a fun visualization. As stated earlier, I convert the amount of beans 'donated' by players into a cash figure – which is then donated to charity. This is a significantly more effective way of maximizing each dollar.

If I get a question wrong, are my beans deducted from future donations?

Nope! If you get a question wrong, no beans are deducted from the donation totals. These 'lost' beans simply aren't added to the donation count.

Who pays for the donations?

I pay for the donations, mostly through money earned by the advertising that appears on this site. Additional funding comes from players supporting this project via PayPal.

Can't I just run a bot, or enable an adblocker?

Do not use bots or adblockers when playing BeanBeanBean! This website is supported by advertising revenue, so players who cheat the system with those methods will not have their beans counted.

Which charities do you donate to?

I donate to US-based food banks, natural disaster relief efforts, and other assorted charities. Check out the 'Donation History' section below for details.
