When we think of superheroes we usually think of fictional characters such as Batman or Captain America. But SKOUT, the global app that helps people meet from all corners of the globe, is on a mission to celebrate real life superheroes that are helping make their communities a better place to live in.
According to an article published on PRnewswire, SKOUT teamed up with the Make A Wish foundation in the Greater Bay Area to help grant wishes to children who really deserve it. They did this in honor of National Superhero Day, which took place on April 28th.
To make this happen SKOUT used their virtual gift feature. Every time a user gave a friend a superhero-themed virtual gift within the app, SKOUT made a donation to Make A Wish. They continue to make donations until a wish has been fully funded.
Over the last few years SKOUT has used the virtual gift feature on many different occasions to help give back to the community. They have donated to a variety of different organizations including food banks, animal shelters and now the Make A Wish foundation.
Over the last year over 400,000 virtual gifts have been given through the SKOUT app to help support various charitable causes. Each of those virtual gifts has turned into a donation that will help change someones life.
SKOUT’s efforts to bring awareness to important causes has been a huge success. To date they have helped feed more than 30,000 people in the San Francisco-Marin area. They have also helped senior dogs get wellness exams and cats get adopted by loving families.
To help celebrate National Superhero Day, the team at SKOUT decided they would have a little fun by running a superhero-inspired survey. The results of the survey were quite interesting.
Three out of four people said helping those in need is what makes a person a hero. Even better is the fact 80% of those surveyed said they want to be a superhero in real life.
You can get full survey results by visiting the SKOUT blog.
When it comes to meeting new people and expanding ones social circle, SKOUT is the app that can help you do that. To learn more about the app visit www.SKOUT.com.
