Innovative Shop2Care App Launches Nationally Making it Easy to Help those in Need
Not-for-profit online shopping program enables individuals to generate donations for causes they care about at no additional cost to them.
(Media-Newswire.com) - Boca Raton, FL – September 3, 2015. Shop2Care ( http://www.shop2care.org ) officially launched their App nationwide in San Antonio at a major press conference held this week at the San Antonio Food Bank. The launch of the App coincided with Hunger Awareness Month in September, serving as a catalyst to promote philanthropy throughout the fall, the upcoming holiday season, and beyond. Key community representatives from all of Southwest Texas attended and saw first-hand how they can further help their constituents.
Shop2Care is a not-for-profit online charitable shopping program that was launched in September of 2014 by founder Mark Asofsky to impact those in need throughout the United States. This nonprofit entity enables consumers to become philanthropists every time they shop at any one of 1,000 participating retailer links through shop2care.org or the unveiled App. The Shop2Care App makes it even easier for consumers to shop on their Smartphones or Tablets as they make a difference right from the comfort of their own homes or on-the-go. On average, 5% of each purchase is paid by the retailer, donated by the consumer, and then directed to any number of causes chosen, at no additional cost to the shopper.
According to Mark Asofsky, “Shop2care is the most effective way to generate donations for causes you care about. More and more, individuals are shopping on-the-go and the App will make it easier to give back. As a result, Shop2Care enables consumers to positively impact the areas of health, education, human services, children, and hunger relief, and it won’t cost them a penny.”
With the wide variety of categories and participating retailers, such as Best Buy, Expedia, Macy’s, Walgreens, Amazon and Home Depot, Asofsky feels it is likely that individuals are already shopping through these sites so why not access them through Shop2Care. The App is available free for download on Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for IOS. Shop2Care envisions that the unveiling of the App will further enhance the collective purchasing power of socially-minded shoppers and spread virally. Anyone can encourage family and friends inviting them to download the App, shop, and give back.
In addition, the App provides an easy gateway for corporate enrollment drives and challenges and can facilitate partnerships with schools, military groups, and various associations and organizations. Individuals will recognize that each person can make a difference, while everyone can make an impact. Shop2Care is making it even easier for shoppers to give back, every time they make a purchase online.
