PocketPhilanthropist iPhone app for charitable donations

PocketPhilanthropist iPhone app for charitable donations
Two former high school classmates from Seattle have teamed up, 11 years later, to create PocketPhilanthropist, an iPhone and iPod touch application designed to raise funds for a different charity each week. Available as of July 5, the free "app" can be downloaded from iTunes. With it, users are able to make charitable donations, starting at $1, with the touch of a finger. Each week, PocketPhilanthropist features a different charity and distributes "app" generated donations back to that charity.

Being one of the only downloadable applications with a "Donate" button, PocketPhilanthropist hopes to raise $1 million in its first year. The initial charities to be featured include 3MAlliance, an effort to save the rain forest in Ecuador, and One Mission International, an effort to fulfill the needs of Ethiopia's orphaned children.

Throughout the months of July and August, PocketPhilanthropist is competing in the Pepsi Refresh competition in hopes of winning funds that will be used to support the non-profit. To vote for PocketPhilanthropist, visit http://www.refresheverything.com/philanthropy.
