We’re changing the way people think about giving. Not that long ago, giving was just restricted to a large NGO or charity.  We’ve flipped the context of giving from donating to an organisation to directly helping an individual, a friend/colleague/family member or even a stranger, when they need the most. Whether it’s a medical emergency, sports athlete, or an animal shelter, we use technology to enable people share their authentic stories and receive support.
