Check-in for Good Tornado Relief Fund

We know disaster relief organizations need the proper funds in order to be effective.

Check-in for Good, a crowd funding and location based advertising application, announced the launch of their first internal campaign through the company’s own digital platform. The Check-in for Good team donated $1,000 in to The American Red Cross in the wake of the Oklahoma tornado disaster that took place Monday, May 20, 2013. The Check-in for Good team is encouraging supporters to match their $1,000 donation by June 3, 2013.

"Our hearts go out to all those affected by these devastating tornadoes," said Rob Katz, CEO of Check-in for Good. “Disaster relief teams, like The American Red Cross, are working around the clock to provide victims with food, shelter and supplies, but we know organizations also need the proper funds in order to be effective. On the Check-in for Good platform we ask people everyday to give and raise money for the causes they care about, so it’s imperative for our team to do the same and utilize the platform we created to aid these relief teams."

To give to the Check-in for Good Oklahoma tornado disaster relief fund, supporters can visit the Check-in for Good website or download their mobile application for iOS and Android devices. Monetary donations are collected within a secure WePay account and 100 percent of proceeds go to The American Red Cross. The company is also encouraging visitors to get involved and start their own fundraising campaigns for The American Red Cross or other disaster relief organizations with the Check-in for Good platform.
