Let Us Donate to Charity for Free
AdWap (Advertising with a Purpose) is a website and mobile app that allows you to watch commercials to donate to charities for free. We have over 80 organizations raising money on our platform for things like ALS and cancer research, humanitarian relief, and recently, for the victims of the Manchester bombing. Since officially launching in December 2016, we have raised over $10,000 for charity. Last week, AdWap was removed from the app store because Apple "found that the primary purpose of your app is to encourage users to watch ads, which is not appropriate for the App Store". The primary purpose of AdWap is not to encourage users to watch ads, but rather, to make giving back free and easy. It allows you to donate during your downtime and support important causes while you watch TV, or eat, or wait in line for your coffee. So, being able to use the app from your phone is critical. Please consider supporting our petition to let Apple know that principle is more important than policy and that AdWap is a valuable app and appropriate for the App Store because it provides people with a free way to give, so that they can make a positive difference, anytime, anywhere, everyday.

Sign the Petition to save the Salvation army kettle collection at the Pittsburgh Airport
The single Salvation Army kettle collection at Pittsburgh Airport is a reminder of the importance of helping others in need. The worker who sits next to the kettle all day, 5 days a week, is a beacon of light to all who come in contact with her. She will lose her job that she has faithfully served for 16 years. It was noted in an article that the kettle collection raises $40,000 in charitable donations. This is not an irritating solicitor trying to collect. Marilyn simply smiles and says hello to all that go past her and she rings her bell. So many families benefit from this work. Please open your hearts and sign the petition to save the kettle at the Airport.

Starbucks: Donate a portion of their proceeds from the 2014 Planners to the Typhoon Victims
I was browsing thru my News Feed the other day. I was in a state of shock and dismay as I witnessed, post after post the aftermath of the Typhoon Yolanda. It reminded me of how I was in that very same situation back when Reming hit Bicol in 2006. In the midst of my browsing I came across one post from a page about an Unboxing of the newly-announced "Starbucks 2014 Planner". I was quite offended by the untimely release of such thing that most of us consider as a "luxury" to have. I thought of the mechanics on how to get the planner since I'm already aware on how to avail such - You just have to be able to collect 18 stickers from Starbucks beverages. That's when I felt worse because I thought of all the people sipping on their Choco Java Chip Frappuccinos or Gingerbread Latte Frappe just to be able to collect stickers for the planners while somewhere in Visayas, some thousands of people are wailing for potable water. Just plain, lukewarm and stock water. I felt like I needed to do something about this. And here I am now, my friends, suggesting that for every 18 stickers that customers complete, just the cost of 1 sticker will go to the survivors of the Typhoon Yolanda. This will cost around 150.00 only but guys, 150.00 per person who will get a planner is not bad! In fact it's going to be a great help and will surely go a looong way! Starbucks' facebook page 's cover photo encourages us all to "Create Wonder, Share Joy" . I think this will be the best oppurtunity so that they'll really be able to live up to what they're trying to promote. Let's understand what the essence of Christmas truly is. Let's help Starbucks realize that we can indeed create wonder and share joy by hitting two birds with one stone - buy yourself a drink and give a little Christmas cheer to the survivors of Yolanda! WE never know, the first thing you might write on your brand new planner is an entry about how you were able to collect the stickers, get the planner and give back to our brothers and sisters in the Visayas.

Stop the Delay on Donations to Japan
Around the world, people like you and me are responding in any way we can to help Japan. But one of the easiest ways to help - texting to give by mobile - actually isn't the help it sounds like. During the response to Haiti, cellphone companies processed mobile donations to relief organizations right away. But for Japan, they aren't making this same exception and it could take as much as 90 days for donations to reach people in need. Please help convince them to immediately processes donations so donations reach where they are needed now. For more information visit the mGiving Foundation: "How long does it take for my charity to receive the funds? In response to the Haiti Relief Effort, carriers are remitting donations immediately to nonprofit organizations. Generally, the typical time frame for remittance is based upon the billing cycles of the donors and can take, on average, 90 days from time of donation for the charity to receive the funds." Winning this campaign depends on our ability to call on thousands of supporters like you. After signing this petition, please follow us on Facebook - just click 'Like' at the top of the page.
