Now you can Instagram for a Cause

May 15, 2013

foodWe’ve all done it ourselves or have been sitting at a table where someone snaps a shot of the meal they are about to eat in order to share with everyone on their social networks. What if every time we did this, we would help GIVE a meal to someone in need?

Now you can do this by sharing your photos through FoodShareFilter. When you upload a photo through this app, it adds a message stating, “This picture helps millions of people not to suffer hunger,” and uploads it to instagram. The proceeds collected through the app benefit Manos Unidas, a Spanish nonprofit organization that fights hunger in developing countries.

I think it’s great that organizations are utilizing technology and social media for good. Hopefully, this will inspire other organizations get creative while allowing more people to support worthy causes.
