App Lets You Donate Companies’ Money To Charity Just By Clicking.
Tinbox, a new app out of Paris, has devised a way for users to give big companies’ money away just by tapping their phone’s screen.
Participating companies agree to donate 1 euro (about $1) each time a user clicks on the profile of a nonprofit that has partnered with the app. Users choose a project they want to support, then a list of items the group needs, say a hospital bed or a stethoscope, appears and they choose which product their click should support.
Once the user completes the “purchase,” the logo of the company that’s supporting the organization appears for five seconds, then disappears. The user isn’t prompted to take any other actions, like viewing cumbersome pop-ups or revenue-generating ads, TechCrunch noted.
