Clearbridge Mobile, an award-winning mobile app design and development studio, announced today that its We365 Social Mobile App for Free The Children has been selected as an Official Honoree in the 19th Annual Webby Awards in the Mobile: Best Visual Design - Function and Mobile: Social categories. With nearly 13,000 entries received from all 50 US states and over 60 countries, the Official Honoree distinction is awarded to the top 20% of all work entered that exhibits remarkable achievement.
We365 was redeveloped by Clearbridge Mobile with the purpose of engaging youth to take real world action on social issues. The We365 app is the first-of-its-kind digital platform and the most downloaded youth social cause-led mobile app on the Apple App Store and on Google Play with over 100,000 downloads.
“The We365 app is revolutionizing volunteerism by empowering youth to create positive change through social media and mobile technology in a way that has never been done before,” said Deepak Chopra, CEO of Clearbridge Mobile. “The redesigned app is a fun and simple tool for youth to make a positive impact in their communities, tracking and sharing their progress with friends, and to inspire others into action.”
Volunteer Tracking, one of the new features built into the app, helps students track their volunteer hours and allows schools to verify the hours that go towards building student social impact portfolios and résumés.
“We’re incredibly excited that We365 has been named Official Honoree of The Webby Awards," said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of Free The Children. "In partnership with TELUS, Free The Children created We365 as an online platform where youth can engage in daily actions to better themselves, their community and their world. It's an incredible tool that enables young people to discover the causes they are passionate about, amplify their impact, and help shift the world from a focus on 'me' to a focus on 'we.’"
We365 is globally available on http://www.we365.com. It is available for free download on Android and IOS through Google Play and the Apple App Store.
