HALO is excited to be part of the launch of a brand new innovative donation app called 'Thinking of You.' It’s a quick and simple way to give to charity by mobile whilst also being highly personalised, allowing you to send thoughtful messages to those you care about at the same time as donating to charity.
How it works
Create fundraising events
We love it when our supporters take on a challenge for HALO, running marathons, cycling or hiking their way across the country or hosting an event to support our work. The new Thinking of You app allows you to create your own fundraising event, set targets, invite friends and share on social media in just a few clicks. Post live updates as you prepare for your feat of endurance or donate directly to a friend’s post.
Send a thought and donate in the moment
Thinking of You lets you reach out to people and show them you are there for them with its ‘send a thought’ option. Whether it’s a happy or sad occasion, a birthday or anniversary, use the app to send a message with the option of donating in the moment to your recipient’s favourite charity.
Set up a memory or legacy fundraising campaign
Sometimes people choose to fundraise for HALO in honour of a loved one and with the Thinking of You app it’s simple to set up a Memory or Legacy Fundraising Campaign and connect with friends and relatives who would like to show their support.
Donate direct to HALO
If you would like to donate straight to HALO from your mobile, the app is an easy and secure way to make a difference. Send invites to your contacts and get them to join the most thoughtful giving app too!
Keeping it thoughtful
In a world where the pressure of social media feels increasingly overwhelming, Thinking of You is also unusually ‘one way’; thoughts and photos go one-way, and so the pressure to respond all the time is off.
Founder and charity comms entrepreneur, Johnny Pitt explains his motivation for developing the app:
“I’ve always been struck by the strength of the words ‘Thinking of You’, but also the lack of a quick and simple way to give on your mobile. Thinking of You combines both and fills a big fundraising, emotional and societal need.” Johnny Pitt, 'Thinking of You' Founder
The App has the full backing of the Charities Aid Foundation and HALO are pleased to be one of the first charities to bring this new way of making a difference to our supporters.
