“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” – Maya Angelou

Your generosity, in whatever form it takes, contributes to the world.  Whether it brightens someone’s day, helps to smooth their path, or simply makes them smile, you’ve given something of yourself that is worth more than money. Most times people are looking for avenues to contribute meaningfully to the world. However, now people are finding it difficult to donate or volunteer in person and at the same time, they are unable to find the right and verified paths to donate online.

Technology can also be used for the greater good of humankind and that allows all of us to contribute with ease. Although there have been questions regarding the concept and the best way to proceed, the objective is more than only business. Some people are looking for appropriate channels to donate because there is a perception that donating online leaves them in a closet about where and how their money is being spent and therefore reliable online partnerships for donation can be a platform for an opportunity to bridge the gap and eliminate the difficulty of donating. Such online platforms can further bring out kindness in people and spreading it to people in need and can completely change the face of donations for the better.
