Unfortunately, all good things must eventually end.
We decided to close down the old site as it was no longer viable in its current form. Over time, advertising revenue from banner ads (the old method used to raise funds by the site) declined dramatically to the point where each click was no longer generating significant revenue. So sadly (and after much deliberation) we felt it was best to redirect users to directly donate to one of our trusted charity partners, WaterAid.
How did Ripple start?
Ripple was started by a small group of friends with a passion to harness the power of the internet to drive change and raise funds for community aid. Ripple was a purely non-profit initiative that we all worked on in our spare time aside from our full-time jobs.
Over the journey, we were successful in raising a significant amount of funds for our charity partners. Over 1.2 million users visited the site from all over the world. We were continually amazed and gratified by the commitment of the passionate Ripple community.
To everyone who helped, assisted, or contributed with Ripple over the journey: you’re amazing and thank you.
