Let us tell you a little bit about us TOP
Our vision is to create a new caring economy whereby the process of everyday living creates benefits for people in need, community causes and the environment. We are also committed to making it easier, more efficient and more rewarding for people to contribute to these causes.
Our objective is to grow the overall donation pool available for distribution amongst not for profits by increasing the participation in fundraising by businesses and households alike, reducing the cost of raising these funds and by making ‘giving’ part of as many everyday transactions as possible.
