Why do you believe people want to give? I want to believe people enjoy sharing with others, especially when one has their own basic needs satisfied, as many have in our country. But then I have to put on my doctor's hat. There is of course research in this area and I get partial support for my own thesis. However, there appear to be two main reasons to people donating to charities: either because it makes them feel good, or because there is a socially-conditioned "pressure" to do so.

Why have your chosen to be a part of Pennybridge? I'm so fond of the underlying driving force that I perceive Pennybridge has. It's about a willingness to do good for others. Any such deed sends ripples on the water. I want to help and further develop Pennybridge and create more and bigger ripples. If more people are given the opportunity to give, more people will be able to receive. It brings joy to my heart.

Current positions: Director of Business Development at Digital River World Payments. Focus on sales of global payment solutions to global ecommerce mainly within Video Games and digital products.
Previous assignments: Analyst at the Institute for Studies of Political growth, Consultant at the Swedish council of export.

Why do you believe people want to give? I believe people give when they put themselves in the situation of others and see the world through their eyes. Maybe a situation that someone close goes is going through or a global event one is following by afar. Then many wonder if I were in that same situation, wouldn’t I want others to help me too?

Why have your chosen to be a part of Pennybridge? The founding idea is sound, to help organizations help! Moreover, it is really incredibly exciting entrepreneurship and to be a part of this innovation. It is very inspiring to be around people who are willing to take chances, which entrepreneurs do when they create something new. I’m especially interested in the part that deals with online payments, as it’s an area which I am extra passionate about.

Why do you believe people want to give? I believe that all people have one or more "causes" that they are passionate about. And I also feel that they want to support them financially. Their fervor may change from time to time due to circumstances. Like when you have children at that age when they want interested in sports or other clubs, then you’re keenly interested in they having good finances so that they can provide your children with the best possible conditions for them to practice their sport. If you hade someone close to you with a serious disease, then you really want there to be development in research and treatment in that area. Sometimes, you don’t have any personal connection to what you’re passionate about, but you’re committed anyways. But what these have in common is their need funding, funding which we can’t count on that "society" to always provide for. So that’s why we want to give to things we’re passionate about.

Why have your chosen to be a part of Pennybridge? I think Penny Bridge opens up new opportunities to give in a way that is easy and doesn’t hurt your wallet so much. That you can give small amounts but often, I think will attract many people. And to be able to easily control their donations to many beneficiaries, like for example their children's sports club, makes it even more agreeable. I consider it an honor to be involved in developing such a service.

Why do you believe people want to give? To every now and then prove to ourselves that our heart is bigger than our desires.

Why have your chosen to be a part of Pennybridge?

Why do you believe people want to give? One of the trends of the day parallel to an individualistic society, is altruism. We are many who want to give to good causes, but receivers must work transparently and we do not want funds eaten up by administration.
