This app is simple clean. It takes the overwhelming nature of charity and makes it easier to manage. There are lots of causes out there; everyone seems to need something from us; and we just don't always know how or how much to give. This app makes it easier to give without disrupting our lives. Just a little bit here and there to all the the groups we want to support- so much simpler this way. We're no longer overwhelmed, finally able to act. My favorite feature is the link to Guidestar's page about the nonprofits. I'm able to know if the project I want to support is genuine but also judicious.
it's not a 5 star yet as the cred of each cause isn't easily discernible. with a rating of sorts (i.e. % overhead) and a CLEAR and definitive stamp if ANY religious affiliation exists, this is a 10+ and one of the best products ever launched by google. it's just a buck a day ... ALL you have to do is get a grande instead of a venti and you'll be way ahead in so many ways.
This is an amazing app and needs more traction. However, I do have one complaint: I wish Google would allow for me to use my Google Opinion Reward balance to pay for my donations as well. It's survey money they gave me, so I'd love to be able to use that money within another Google app to support amazing causes.
Make a difference anywhere Wow, just wow. This is definitely one of the upsides of technology. Make that 1$ that you could use to buy crap to use for a greater purpose then yourself.
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS Apps like One Today and BOINC (distributed computing e.g. folding@Home, SETI@Home) represent the tremendous amount of good we can achieve by leveraging our technology and the connections we take for granted. Be a part of the effort.
Time vs. Money I think this app will be great for people who donate money to big charities. You should come out with an app for volunteering locally. I wrote a whole review about a great idea for an app that kinda mixes something similar to periscope + meetup + evites and then it got erased 😣. The point is, I want it to be easier to find a place to volunteer around my community. Ex:After a natural disaster everyone is looking for a place to volunteer. You had to rely on local news Facebook posts to tell us where to go.
