Editors’ Notes

Quickly make small donations to feed children in need around the world.


Right and Righteous for People trying to help

I had seen a commercial for this UN need for donations to help feed children in Myanmar; but when I went to the website to attempt to donate a one time gift (vs. monthly auto payments)... and I was not able to find a way to help with donations that don’t become lost in the seemingly endless monthly deductions that I am terrible at remembering and yet are very important. This app allows you to choose different ways of helping others in the worst situations; and because of the ability to: give $15 to feed a child for a month; which is what I just did... well it’s a beautiful change from the crazy decisions of spending money during the holidays and being able to also remember how much we have. So even though I probably should be embarrassed by not wanting another commitment for helping children; instead I will use this app for more gifts of different amounts that are never enough; but it allows people to donate even a couple of dollars for real powerful UN help. Bravo!


Say, "Grace," like you mean it

The best way to express gratitude is to give back what you got, and that with cheer.

Five stars then for an app from which I can feed the hungry a meal each time I am grateful for mine. With it, not only can I *say* "Thank You," I can *do* "Thank You," too.

Two things to make that process more intuitive:

1. Place the Share the Meal button in the center of the screen, first thing. It's the app's only function, and it doesn't appear until the user starts scrolling down. That's counterintuitive to the expected operation of any app, but is easy to correct.

2. Integrate payment processing into the app completely. Segueing to Safari to complete the payment process is not only time-consuming, but is not the expected behavior of any app. Any and all other apps process payments inside the app, and so should this one.

Thank you for making this app, and for facilitating a better relationship to our Creator by and through your your charity efforts'
