Statement of principles
Have you ever said you'd do something, using willpower alone, and then found it easy to give up at the slightest hurdle or temptation?
The first principle of BetchaIcan is to help you or someone else achieve a goal or target by having that little extra incentive to see it all the way through.
The second principle of BetchaIcan, is to turn failure into success, by donating to charity when a challenge isn't achieved, therefore ensuring that the effort put into an unsuccessful attempt to hit a target, will give the reward of knowing someone has benefited after all.
BetchaIcan allows you to set a goal over a specific time and then treat yourself (or a friend or member of family) to a specific reward, that you will be able to order at the once the challenge has completed.
If you have completed the goal, and you (and the challenger and bet-buddies if you have them) agree that you have been successful, then you will be directed to the relevant page to order your reward, if not, then you will be directed to the charities page to make your donation.
As there is no way of checking whether or not you, or others, have really achieved a chosen target, the site is run on the basis of honesty to yourself and others.
If you are betting yourself and you don't properly complete your target, then whether you collect the reward or give the money to charity, is a matter entirely for your own conscience.
If you are betting someone else, with a view to rewarding them if they achieve the target, or giving the money to a charity if they don't, then any incentive has to be on the complete understanding that you are relying on the integrity and honesty of the person you are incentivising.
Enjoy your challenges!
