98 Cents is an app providing the ability to give charity, or even receive it, conveniently and easily.

It could happen to anyone – you’ve had a run of bad luck; perhaps you’ve lost your job, maybe you’ve had unexpected medical bills come up, but whatever the reason, you’re out of money.

However, just because you’re out of money doesn’t mean things stop costing it. How are you supposed to afford food, clothes, or pay your bills to keep the lights on?

Although it’s never what you want to consider, there is something true in life that will always exist – the kindness of strangers.

98 Cents seeks to help those down on their luck connect with people with a giving heart and an open wallet. By simply logging in, a kind person can scroll through a list of pleas by people in their country and around the world who desperately need just a little bit of help.

When you pick a project that you want to donate to, whether it be helping someone’s grocery bills or helping them afford new sandals, you pay the advertised amount, which is a multiplicative of 98 cents.

Being able to donate from 98 cents to 9 dollars and 80 cents means that you can perform small micro charities throughout your day.

In the same way that you might donate your spare change to a homeless person on the street, you are able to donate a small amount of money to those in need, all from the convenience of your phone.

98 Cents is a very interesting app in that it doesn’t seek to operate at a profit – it takes only a small percentage of the money donated to cover transaction fees and server hosting costs. Instead, 98 Cents is all about ensuring that people can receive the charity that they so desperately need.

It may seem tragic to scroll through the list of people making desperate pleas for help in their dire situations, but it is wonderful to know that there are indeed people out there that want to donate and help them.

To make it all possible, 98 Cents exists to connect donators with those in need in a selfless, caring way.
