Uyolo: The new community for change-makers launches a cool new app that makes giving fun
An “Instagram” for social good has been released on both Google Play and App Store. A little tech revolution with the promise to bring about a huge change... Because Kind is the new Cool!
MILAN, ITALY - 15 June, 2018 – Uyolo, the new community for change-makers, launches an
innovative digital platform to promote philanthropy and active citizenship worldwide.
Uyolo’s vision is to inspire youths to take action, to contribute to the 17 Sustainable
Development Goals set by the United Nations to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure
sustainable and inclusive prosperity by 2030. Uyolo has recently released the Uyolo App, which combines social networking features with a micro-donation platform and allows users to interact and donate to the causes they most care about through a simple ‘’like’’.
“Uyolo provides an easy, fun and fulfilling way to raise awareness on key social and environmental issues such as the global migrant crisis and climate change. It not only provides a window to the world, but also an opportunity for everyday-user to get involved and make a difference’’ says Alessandra Gargiulo, Co-founder of Uyolo, who bets on the Millennial generation to make change happen.
Few fundraising platforms have the ability to engage youths on a daily basis. Instead, Uyolo
aims to address the growing Millennial appeal to social good and justice, with its user-friendly and attractive interface, while bringing them closer to the work of selected nonprofit
organizations. Through the app, indeed, users engage with non-profit organizations - all vetted by Uyolo to ensure transparency and accountability - and contribute to amplifying their visibility and fundraising.
An initiative to democratize philanthropy and make it more reachable, innovative, strategic and engaging, the platform already hosts over 300 users and 15 nonprofit organizations from
several countries including Tanzania, India, Hong-Kong, Lithuania, Ukraine, France, Italy and
the USA with many more to come….
“We are delighted to associate with Uyolo and its amazing members. Appreciate all your efforts and your initiative to support the work like ours across the world.’’ Tejas, Founder of Sparky Football, a football initiative based in India to Engage, Educate and Empower children on life skills.
Uyolo is free and available worldwide on the latest OS mobile versions in 3 languages: English, Spanish and Italian, and its ambition does not stop here! The next versions of the app will allow users to create and participate in volunteering events as well as in corporate giving initiatives.
