The holiday season is a time for giving. But finding the time and money to donate is often a difficult task.
Today, Placed launched a new app called Give 2 Charity that makes donating to charities easy and accessible to anyone with a smartphone. The free app lets users earn points toward monetary donations to several leading charities in exchange for opting in to location measurement.
Here’s a look at some of our favorite charities users will have a chance to donate to: Make-A-Wish Foundation, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Action Against Hunger, Sierra Club and the Humane Society. People who download the Give 2 Charity app can be assured that 100% of the proceeds are donated directly to the charity they select.
Charitable contributions are made possible by users agreeing to location measurement through the Give 2 Charity app. Measured locations are aggregated across thousands of users to provide meaningful analytics to third parties. Location data is always aggregated, never shared on an individual basis, and not used for ad targeting. Donors may opt out of giving at any time simply by uninstalling the application.
We hope you will download the Give 2 Charity app and join us in giving back this holiday season and all year long! Give 2 Charity is available today on Android and coming soon for iPhone. Download the Android app or sign up for first access to the iPhone app here.
