Click for good karma: contribute to your favorite non-profit with Simpliziti
The idea behind the Simpliziti app was to create a social platform that made gifting easier. Using the app, you can see all your friends’ and families’ wish lists and contribute money to make their non-profit wish come true. It’s designed to make gifting fun and simple. Hence the name: Simpliziti.
Non-profit wish lists
Along the way, the creators of the App, Dino and James, realized that many of their friends’ wish lists included non-material things. They didn’t want expensive shoes or leather handbags, they wanted to offer a community service, help someone less fortunate, or start a “green” campaign.
Some of their friends added items to their wish lists that weren’t for them, but for someone else. They didn’t want anything for their birthday, instead they wished to buy children’s books for their community.
Simpliziti took a hint from its users
Inspired by their friends’ wishes, the creators of Simpliziti decided to contact several important non-profit organizations in order to provide an easy way to contribute to a great cause.
More than 20 non-profits accepted the opportunity to become part of the Simpliziti app. Allowing Simpliziti to easily fill the gap between people that need help, and people that want to make a difference in their communities.
The “Good Karma” section is currently under development.
Simpliziti is currently in Beta and available free on iOS and Android. A few adjustments need to made to the app in order to incorporate the “Good Karma” section inspired by Simpliziti users.
This section of the app will highlight some of the coolest non-profits on a global scale, making it easy to contribute to the whole world no matter where you are: just click to donate.
The team has been working on developing the proper user interface that will allow the most gratifying experience for both the users and the non-profits.
