The Number One Way to Earn Butterfly Credits

The Number One Way to Earn Butterfly Credits


We all love Butterfly Credits. Take action on Care2, earn credits and then redeem your credits for gifts that make a difference. Love it!

So what’s the secret to earning millions of credits?

  • Visiting Care2 every day? Nope, although the more you visit, the more credits you’ll earn (tip: streaks earn you more credits – 1 credit for one day, 2 credits for two days in a row, 3 credits for three days, etc.)
  • Posting Lots of Comments? These credits add up fast, and good comments often receive lots of Green Stars for added benefit. But you can only earn credits on your first 10 comments per day.
  • Sharing stories and petitions on Facebook or Twitter? This is indeed a great way to earn credits. You’ll earn credits every time someone clicks through on your shared link, up to 50 clicks per day, so you can earn lots of credits by sharing.

While all of the above are great ways to earn lots of credits, the number one way to earn Butterfly Credits is…

Start a Petition! Every time someone signs your petition you’ll earn 2 credits – the sky’s the limit! Have you seen some of those huge petitions started by Care2 members that have hundreds of thousands of signatures? Yup, the authors of those petitions received thousands and thousands of credits just for starting the petition and spreading the word. And, of course best of all, the petition authors are often able to save lives, influence local governments and make a difference through their actions.

Give it a try! You’ll be amazed what power you have to make a difference by starting a petition – and compelling petitions will earn thousands of credits you can use for even more Good!
