Guess what! The Mayweather vs. McGregor fight is available on our app to bet on! The best part? The money goes to the charity of your choice!
Why Does This Fight Matter?
Mayweather came out of retirement for this fight! Connor McGregor, typically a MMA fighter, is 11 years younger than the undefeated boxing champion. A challenge of this scale is HUGE for UFC boxing. It’s even speculated that this fight will break the pay-per-view record of four million buys from the 2015 Mayweather vs. Pacquiao match.
This week, Goodbookey’s spotlight is shining on Well Constructed!
What Does Well Constructed do?
Well Constructed aims to enable community development by providing clean drinking water to as many people as possible. They partner with local communities and contractors to build wells and establish well maintenance programs in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
How Did Well Constructed Start?
Google’s Nathan Rogers was attending Santa Clara University when he began working on a project aimed at creating an affordable, safe, sustainable, and scalable building design for people in rural regions of Ghana. While in Ghana he met Rashed who was building a tourism business and partnering with international organizations to build wells in his community. In 2015, with the help of many generous friends, Well Constructed was founded.
Well Constructed’s Impact
Rogers and Anaba have worked to bring down the cost of each well to $3,000, a 25 percent reduction in cost, from what was already a much lower price than many similar sized nonprofits are paying. Since the two men are self-sustained economically, every dollar that’s raised directly funds the construction of new wells. Active since 2015, 17 wells have been built and over 13,000 people now have access to clean water.
What You Can Do
Because every donation makes an impact!
- $10- Provides clean water to 3 people in need.
- $100- Provides clean water to 30 children, enabling them to be in class longer, without having to walk miles to fetch water.
- $3,000- Builds a well that can support a community of 500 to 1,500 people for years to come.
- Shop Amazon Smile- Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of items you buy. That adds up quick!
- Place a GoodBookey bet and select them as your charity!
We are so happy to support such a meaningful, impactful cause! Make sure you place your next GoodBookey bet for Well Constructed.

GoodBookey is happy to shine light on our charity partner, Vs. Cancer!
What Does Vs. Cancer Do?
Vs. Cancer empowers athletes, sports teams, and community members to help children with cancer by fundraising. During the fundraising process, the foundation works with each sports team to identify something specific they want to fund. This includes helping to add personnel, decorate inpatient rooms, or fund research grants. In addition to fundraising, the foundation links teams to hospitals so that athletes can spend quality time directly with the children undergoing treatment.
The GoodBookey team has long been passionate about making the world a better place, one bet at a time. Curious how this came to be? Take a look at the story, as told by one of our founders, Tony Pease.
Earlier this month, GoodBookey traveled to Paris, France to attend the VivaTech conference. Over 50,000 people, 5,000 start ups, 1,000 investors, and 7,000 CEOs all gathered to share the latest and greatest in innovative technology. VivaTech’s mission is to link dynamic start ups with proven leaders. In doing so, successful business strategies and solutions are made that improve future business and society alike.
Goodbookey is happy to announce our newest charity partner: The Confetti Foundation!
What Does The Confetti Foundation Do?
The Confetti Foundation supplies party kits for children who have to spend their birthdays in the hospital. They allow children and parents to take their minds off of hospital stays and celebrate birthdays with ease. Each Birthday Box contains all the materials necessary to throw a birthday party in a hospital room: four cups, four plates, four napkins, four paper straws, four wooden forks, four wooden spoons, two decorative tissue pots, one pair of grippy socks, one bag of handmade birthday cards, a sticker sheet, coloring sheets, crayons, a book mark, a birthday door hanger, one crepe paper streamer roll, a mylar self inflate balloon, a book and a birthday banner!
Over the last year we have been working hard to combine two very different worlds: sports gambling and philanthropy. The idea being our efforts is to take the incredibly large industry of sports entertainment and provide a platform to redirect the social behavior of betting. As a result, we aim to raise money for impactful non-profits.
