Great app

This app is an amazing guide for reflection and giving during the season of Lent. I love the stories of hope as they show real people, and not through the lens of the mainstream media. My only critique is the layout of the app, which is acceptable but not completely intuitive. For example, I was looking for the reflections and did not realize they were categorized under Pray. My bad. Still, I give this 5 stars. Maybe there can be reflections even after the Easter season?

Rice bowl app

This app is very awesome and efficient because you can directly pay the money you want to through the app and you can also see how much percent of your goal that you have met. Thanks rice bowl app!

Beautiful app

I find this app perfect for keeping up with daily reflections during Lent and it helps me remember the importance of giving to those around me. It also corresponds with my CRS rice bowl I got from my church, which is great!
