this application is a great idea. bravo mr. beckerman!

Mary Barkert

The question I first had when I saw this app -- one cent gets donated to charity, and how much does the maker of the app receive? Why don't the non profits just do this themselves and receive the whole advertising amount?

A number of high tech companies have put things out there that "support non profits" while at the same time capture their audiences for their own for-profit purposes. It's one thing if they really offer a service, but I don't see this as a service, I see it as a grab for their audiences, which isn't fair.


I think making an app is great. There are a lot of people who really want to donate money to these and other charities, but can't because they simply cannot afford it. By doing this, these people can now donate regardless of their income, which I think is an amazing idea. I currently have the Aids, Breast Cancer, Free Tibet, and Child abuse support apps. I was horrifically abused as a child, so if my playing a few games can help children like I was, then I'm all over it.

I sincerely hope that people will try to really make a difference this time, these people need & deserve help, and we have a very simple opportunity to give it. How can anyone say no to that?
