App launched to help Jewish charities

By Jonathan Kalmus, March 21, 2013

A Jewish team has developed a charity app which donates money every time someone shops at hundreds of major retailers — and will help Jewish charities, big and small.

Give4Sure can be downloaded to any mobile device or computer from a participating charity’s website, such as Chai Cancer Care, the first charity to run the service.

A donor generates money for their charity when shopping online from over 1,400 retailers including major supermarkets, John Lewis or Amazon.

The app is estimated to generate £5.67 of donations per customer every month. Jewish charities currently running the software include Maccabi GB, Gift, One Family and Manchester Jewish Community Care.

Give4Sure chairman Ivor Levene said: “Charities don’t need to do much to sign up. We are urging Jewish charities big and small to come on board”.
