Our phones, tablets, and watches are with us 24/7 and with that the opportunities to do good – to be good are as well. While education and entertainment-related apps, and those for travel, business, health, social connections and professional productivity tools are the vast majority of how we spend our time, it is the handheld reminders and prospects that allow users of all ages to connect to lending support.
In the blink of an eye, you can be linked to make a charitable donation or register and participate in fund-raising sport or other activities, to finding volunteer opportunities or daily diaries of carrying out random acts of kindness and spreading smiles.
“There really is an ‘app for that,’ and ‘that,’ includes giving and doing for others,” said Eric Silverthorn, president of Dallas-area based Semaphore Mobile which has produced nearly 400 iPhone apps and close to 300 for Android users. With its full team working in the DFW Metroplex, Semaphore Mobile looks forward to projects that make a difference. “We’ve done projects large and small, those that build business, others that build businesses closer to their communities. With almost 10 years in the market there’s little we haven’t been approached about and we are always up for the challenge.”
Humanity, and reaching out – there’s definitely an APPreciation for community members to APPly support to those in need. As the holiday season is almost upon us, realize how you and your company can build a stronger sense of community within, or to the broader public, by action-based events and programming, donations, or other creative realms, or how you as an APP user can spread your heart, and smiles.
