Hangtime Uses Trivia to Raise Money for Charity
Users play trivia games for points and use them to donate money to charity.
Earlier this week we introduced a brand new feature to our app allowing users to visit a virtual “Hangstore” and redeem points for not only cash, but also prizes and experiences. We are thrilled with how many users have chosen to spend their points in creative ways, but found ourselves thinking: what more can we do?
Hangtime has added a “Donate” section to the Hangstore, where users who have accumulated points by playing games can donate real money to a good cause. Users can donate in increments as small as $.10. When a user donates any amount, they will receive the “Humanitarian Badge.”
While we plan to see these proceeds benefit a number of charitable organizations over time, we are currently donating 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Florence. For a limited time, Hangtime will also match all donations made to the store.
As a social gaming application, we care deeply about building a sense of community - not just in our app, but in real communities around the world. We hope that our new points system makes it easier for our users to help others in the community.
If you’d like to have some fun, join us for a game, earn some points, and consider using them for good!
