Mobile payments save lives with Venmo!
We’ve talked a lot recently about how malaria could be the first disease beaten by mobile. While much of that conversation has focused on how mobile phones are changing the malaria fight in Africa, today we are excited to announce a new partnership that harnesses the power of your mobile phone to save lives.
Today we are announcing a brand new partnership with one of the most innovative apps in the world – Venmo. Venmo is a social payments platform that allows you to pay your friends with just a few quick taps. It’s ridiculously easy to pay your friends for rent, movie tickets, cab rides, you name it. At Malaria No More, we’re always looking for ways to innovate to save lives, and Venmo is one of the coolest we’ve seen. Starting now, Venmo makes it incredibly easy to save a life from malaria.
When you make a payment to Malaria No More on Venmo, your donation will automatically be shared to your newsfeed with a link for your friends to donate with one touch. So if your donation is seen by 10 friends, it can save 10 lives. Venmo makes it easy to spread the word!
To help spark this chain of viral donations, Venmo is going as far as giving their entire user base the opportunity to save a life when they cash out their balances to their bank accounts. On top of that, Venmo will give YOU $1 for your first life-saving treatment, on the house! Finally, as part our Power of One campaign, we want to ensure that every Venmo user has the opportunity to track their impact and see how their treatments are getting to the kids that need them most. That’s why starting today you can sync up your Venmo account to Power of One so that all of your Venmo donations will count towards your “Network Impact” score. Best of all, you now can make donations to the Power of One campaign free of fees by making your donations with Venmo.
We can’t thank Venmo enough for the incredible and inventive work they have done to make saving a life so easy. Together, we can save millions of lives and create a world where no child dies from a mosquito bite.
So what are you waiting for – let’s make saving lives a viral movement! Click here to get your first free treatment donated by Venmo.
