This week, Foursquare and Pepsi are teaming up for charity. The hot startup’s leaderboard has just become a charity machine.
From Foursquare: This week (starting last night, thru Sunday Dec 3 @ 11:59p) [TNW this should be the 13th, 4S made a mistake] , every point added to the foursquare leaderboard will be lead to Pepsi donating $0.04 to CampInteractive, an organization that helps empower inner-city youth through technology skills and mentoring.
The total donation is capped at $10,000 as ” things can tend to get out of hand with foursquare :)” Of course, the ten thousand should be gone quickly. But now, if people whine at your endless checking in, tell them that they hate children.
