September 15, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Ninety-eight cents. For some people it's just pocket change even less than pocket change, it might be "invisible" money stuck underneath couch cushions or forgotten in a car glove box or at the bottom of a backpack - but to others it might mean putting flip-flops on bare feet, having a new toothbrush, a snack, or literally doubling one's daily disposable income. Adopting that concept of turning small donations into big changes, as well as harnessing the power and clarity of peer-to-peer giving, a new app called 98 Cents has launched which makes donating to the less fortunate easy and simple. The Android app is available for free download at Google Play.

Keeping things small and efficient is the primary goal of 98 Cents. The team members behind the app each work full-time tech jobs and take nothing from the donations for administrative costs, aside from a small, unavoidable percentage for secure credit card processing fees. No full-time employees, no offices, no overhead just a straight forward peer-to-peer donation system. As a registered 501(c)(3) organization, donations made through the 98 Cents app are tax-deductible. Recipients are vetted by 98 Cents to ensure honesty.

Transactions made through 98 Cents are completely transparent so donors and the 98 Cents community can see first-hand how their money is making an impact.

"We wanted to create a way to bring perspective to charitable giving and to make it as simple as possible," explained 98 Cents developer Soudy Khan. "Money is definitely a matter of relativity, and for many struggling people, even an additional ninety-eight cents can impact their life and, for a moment, relieve some fear and hardship. By harnessing the collective power of community and networking, ninety-eight cents can quickly turn into substantial assistance for a family in need."

Sow the seeds of change today with pocket change. For more information and to download 98 Cents visit Google Play or
