Modern philanthropy is known as the powerful impact of kindness directed towards stranger, setting out to improve the human experience.  Put giving and wealth together, these two very complimentary instruments allow us to address and work to answer global issues creatively, constructively and with purpose.  But with giving patterns focused on 60+ US population and each averaging only two donations each year, what gives?  What if technology could change the giving landscape and people’s behaviors?  Empowering younger generations to also get involved with global issues and from a place they know best – their smartphone.  For a group of do-good student entrepreneurs their mission was to build a software that would give wings to a much larger itch: rewire emerging humanity with hope.
