For many SKOUT is one of the best places to make new connections. This amazing app allows people from all over the world to come together and virtually expand their social circle.
But SKOUT is much more than an app for meeting new people. SKOUT is also an app that enables people from all over the world to make a huge difference in their communities.
This is done by using a special feature known as virtual gifting. Through virtual gifting users of the app are able to give via virtual gifts. These virtual gifts will then be turned into real cash donations to be donated to a good cause.
This time around SKOUT is using the virtual gifting feature to help feed 20,000 people in the San Francisco area. They have teamed up with the SF-Marin Food Bank and all donations will go to them once the virtual gifting campaign has come to an end.
On March 14, 2016, to help celebrate National Potato Chip Day, SKOUT asked all of its users to donate virtual gifts via the SKOUT app. The campaign ran for one day and the goal was to generate enough donations to feed 20,000 people.
Paul Ash, the Executive Director of the SF-Marin Food Bank, is very happy to be working with SKOUT. With more and more people in the San Francisco area dealing with hunger, he believes teaming up with such a popular app is a great way to work towards ending hunger not only in San Francisco, but all over the world.
This is actually the second time SKOUT and the SF-Marin Food Bank have teamed up to help fight hunger. They did the same thing in 2015 to help celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day. That time around they were able to feed 10,000 people.
SKOUT was founded in 2007 with the goal of taking online social interaction to a whole new level. With over a million users from 100 different countries, its safe to say they have succeeded at reaching that goal.
The SKOUT app makes it possible for people to connect with one another via their mobile device. You can connect with someone that’s right up the street or someone that’s on the other side of the world.
Making new friends via the app is fun and engaging thanks to features such as chatting and photo exchanging. To learn more about the SKOUT app visit www.skout.com.
