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!

Easy to use and no recurring billing required


LOVE THIS APP! I have always wanted to participate in the 50 cents per meal thing but did not want to make a commitment to another recurring monthly bill. This app allows you to donate anything from 50 cents for one meal, to $3.50 for a week, $15 for a month, etc. You can choose where you want each donation to go and it provides a bit of a summary on what specifically World Food Program is doing in each area. You can donate to Rhohingya children today and Haiti school meals tomorrow. They do accept PayPal (yay!).

Easy as sharing food with a family member


I have the App on the first page of my iPhone home screen next to my banking App. I see it everyday and when my stomach growls, I am reminded of these sweet children who are rarely, if ever free from hunger and stress. It feels GREAT to give frequently and be easily reminded. One click to open the App, one click to select as little as 50 cents and 1 final click to select PayPal. My gift is meaningful and not as pitiful as doing it once a year at the holidays. I am reminded often of how very fortunate I am.
