WHAT IS RAPUSIA?
Rapusia is a search engine that finances social and environmental projects.
WHO IS BEHIND RAPUSIA?
A group of three highly motivated people. You can write to us through details provided in the "Contact" section, the Rapusia team will be happy to answer you!
FROM WHERE DOES THE MONEY FOR PROJECTS COME?
Whenever you use the search engine, you are shown relevant advertising links and the search engine earns profits. 50% of these profits we donate to projects.
HOW DOES RAPUSIA MAKE MONEY?
Rapusia raises funds through commercial links placed on the search engine. Fifty per cent is paid to projects, 20% is for marketing communication, and 30% for the maintenance costs of the whole mechanism.
HOW MUCH RAPUSIA TO SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTS?
Rapusia reserves 50% for social and environmental projects, the rest is used for the promotion of the search engine and for its operation. Every end of the month, Rapusia has the reports of the actual amount collected. Obviously, each time it will not only depend on how many searches are carried out by users but also on the value of the commercial links that are published.

WHAT ARE THE AUTHORIZATIONS REQUIRED FOR THE RAPUSIA EXTENSION?

WHAT ARE HEARTS?
A heart corresponds to a point you earn every time you carry out a search and an advertisement is presented to you. Rapusia turns these hearts into money and makes a donation to the projects that are currently active.
WHY THIS NAME?
Hearts refer to the fact that everyone can do their part by "giving hearts" to help finance projects!
1 SEARCH = 1 HEART
Collect hearts every time you search with Rapusia. The money tied to this heart comes from the advertising links on the Rapusia search engine.
HOW IS THE FINANCIAL VALUE OF A HEART CALCULATED?
The value of a heart depends on the value of the advertising shown on the Rapusia search engine.
WHAT IS THE FINANCIAL VALUE OF A HEART?
The profits of the projects are calculated on the basis of the profits generated on the search engine and are then distributed among all the projects.
More the number of hearts, the more important the funding for the projects will be.
A person who uses Rapusia for one year, on average, generates €15 in profits.
The total amount collected by the project is updated daily.
WHY IS THE OBJECTIVE IN HEARTS ONLY AN ESTIMATE?
The value of the advertising that appears on the search engine is variable. As a result, the value of hearts varies. We know the real value of hearts only once the month is over and we are given the real values â€‹â€‹of the advertisements that appeared on the engine.
CAN I GET TO COLLECT MORE MONEY IF I CLICK ON ADVERTISING?
We advise you to click only on the advertising links that really interest you! Of course, when you click on the advertisements that interest you, you help the cause a lot.
I HAVE LOST MY HEARTS, WHAT DO I DO?
Rapusia does not allow you to collect hearts if you are browsing privately. Private browsing is active if you have selected the "Clear history at each navigation closure" option. If you want to accumulate hearts, you need to disable this option.
If you delete the cookies, you will lose the statistics of how many hearts you have collected up to that moment, but this does not mean that the hearts have been lost... you have nevertheless contributed with them to the causes active at that time.
DESPITE MY SEARCH, I AM NOT ABLE TO SEE MY HEARTS
More reasons can explain this problem:
- you are using an advertising blocking tool (Adblock or other).
- you are browsing "incognito"
-you have chosen the "Clear history at each navigation closure" option
- you are using a computer cleaning tool (Ccleaner or other) and you have chosen the option "Clean the system at every start"
Mainly Rapusia was born from the desire to raise funds for the Tennis World Foundation which aims to help poor children in the world through tennis.
The Tennis World Foundation is operating in Tanzania, Mauritius, South Africa.
But the Tennis World Foundation itself wants to help other environmental and social organizations... and here are its partner projects.
WHAT FINANCIAL AID DOES RAPUSIA BRING TO PARTNER PROJECTS?
Rapusia turns your hearts into money, then makes donations to supported projects
The percentage that is determined for the individual project is specifically indicated.
HOW ARE THE PROJECTS TO BE SUPPORTED SELECTED?
The first projects were selected by the Rapusia team for their innovative, social or environmental character. In the future, we hope to create a system in which the users themselves will select the deserving projects. This system is still under development.
CAN I PROPOSE A PROJECT?
We select projects starting primarily from our partners. This guarantees their quality and reliability to Rapusia users. However, if you have or think you know a project that meets our selection criteria, you can send us an email indicating the type of project and the reference organization.
