I get good vibes from 98 Cents, a new peer-to-peer charitable donation / fundraising app. Available to download now on Google Play, the app makes it easy to donate to charity, raise funds for charitable causes and receive financial aid if you’re in need of it.
Often, when you donate to a large charity, the majority of your money doesn’t actually go directly to the cause. With staff members to pay, marketing campaigns to fund and so on, it’s difficult to know how much of your money reaches those in need. With 98 Cents, except for a small fee to process secure credit card payments, all of your money goes directly to the person or cause you’re supporting. Donations are completely transparent so donors and the community can see how and where donations are providing help.
For those in need, 98 Cents gives them a way to receive donations and raise funds to help improve their situations. In the spirit of building a kind, honest community, 98 Cents vets people who want to raise money on the platform or receive donations to make sure it’s for a genuine cause.
98 Cents is an app that will surely make a positive impact in many people’s lives, giving us a straightforward, transparent platform to donate our pocket change and do some good.
