Company Developing Platform to Make Donations Easy and Fun
Sparo Corporation, developer of the Sparo community giving platform, an early stage technology platform to make charitable giving fun and easy, announced today that it has secured a $15,000 donation for Save A Child's Heart. These funds will be used to transport a child from Gaza to Israel to treat them with a life-saving heart operation.
"Our business is all about making donations easy, so what better way to launch our mission than with a donation of our own,” said Rob Sobhani, founder and CEO of Sparo. “Through our extensive global network, we were able to secure this donation on behalf of Save a Child’s Heart, which is helping us test our new platform. It is our hope that through our work we can increase charitable giving around the world."
The company aims to make it easy for donors to discover new charities that need their help and will conduct frequent sweepstakes whereby a participating charity is randomly selected to win the pot. Frequent donors will win gift cards or other prizes. The platform runs online and is currently being beta tested by Save a Child’s Heart along with the Omid Foundation and the Maryland Food Bank.
“We are excited by the potential of Sparo’s platform to drive new donations and awareness for Save a Child’s Heart with minimal effort on our part,” said Rabbi David Litwack, Executive Director, Save a Child’s Heart. “This significant donation to our cause along with the smaller donations coming through the platform are literally life-saving for the children and families we serve.”
In 2016, Sparo was issued several patents for the gamification of charitable giving. The company is now in a soft launch phase of its Sparo platform. For more information on the platform, visit https://www.SparoPrize.com.
