Skout, known to most as the most popular mobile app service for connecting to new friends from around the globe is doing something very superhero worthy on National Superhero Day, April 28th. For every virtual superhero-themed gift given on the network tomorrow Skout is making a donation to Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area Foundation until a complete Wish is entirely funded.
Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area
For those who don’t know, Make-A-Wish foundation funds kids with life-threatening medical diseases. The Greater Bay Area foundation began service to the community in 1984, and that year funded 27 wishes of hope and joy for very sick children. Since then it has spent the last 32 years fulfilling the deepest hopes and dreams of terribly sick children to the tune of about 370 wishes a year. The area alone has already funded over 7,200 wishes. For those who know of a life-threatening sick child in the surrounding 19 counties of the Bay Area they can add a child as a candidate for a wish at www.SF.Wish.org.
While 19 counties is a large area, Skout, also located in the Bay area, supports users in 180+ countries, in 16 different languages and is growing every day. Skout’s available for both iOS, Windows and Android and is the number one social connection app today. But Skout is no stranger to philanthropic donations tied to their virtual gifts. In the last year alone, over 400,000 virtual gifts have had a charitable designation to support a myriad of causes.
Skout’s Charity in San Francisco
In the San Francisco area alone Skout has raised a nationwide awareness regarding the more than 30,000 that face hunger in the area every day. They have contributed to the SF-Marin Food Bank, they have also contributed towards animals with Muttville and Cat Town. In addition, they have had wellness exams for aged dogs and have covered many costs of adoption for cats.
So Skout is a philanthropically minded superhero, according to a survey of Skout users. 44% of those surveyed said that selflessness is what makes a superhero. Other survey results were quite revealing. Apparently, if you ask men then Superman is the best American superhero, women disagree and say Batman, think it’s the black???
According to the survey the most coveted superhero skill is flying at 29%, 22% said super strength, and another 17% said speed. Naturally, the best superhero ride is the bat-mobile, but Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane had a reported 20% as did X-Men’s Blackbird, and 12% for the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty.
