JellyChip: Chat App with a purpose
Chat applications have leveled up the messaging experience of users. From simple text communication you can now express your thoughts and feelings using emojis, animated gifs, shared photos and videos. But did you know that there is an app that lets you chat, share photos and share snaps while at the same time allows you to help make a difference in the lives of the socially disadvantaged for free?
JellyChip is the first app of its kind to merge social networking and charity to create a global community of givers. It allows you to send instant messages, share snaps of your daily lives, and answer surveys and trivias for fun. Each of these features in the app allows you to earn points for free, which in turn you can use to buy gifts for donation. Gifts require a number of points before being given by JellyChip to their charities, which you and your fellow users have to earn and donate together for. If there is a specific cause you want to help out in, be it saving nature, helping kids in need, or feeding stray animals, JellyChip has given users the power to vote for gifts as well.
The chat app was developed by the James Downing. The mobile application, on the first wave already attracted 61,000 users worldwide and has generated 8,000 plus charity gifts for various cause-oriented organization in the likes of WWF, World Vision and UNICEF and more – among a growing list of beneficiaries. When asked what made him give up his day job, “I found a new way and solution to charity giving. The charity industry is tired, people are tired of donating the same way to the same organisations with the same results. Technology is everywhere today. We can connect daily on Facebook, Snapchat, WhatsApp and Viber – but how come we can’t save the life of someone in need?”, James explains.
The Philippines is one of the biggest users of social media in South East Asia and also, one of the biggest countries with charity volunteers. With these attributes, the country caught the attention of the global brand, JellyChip. JellyChip has chosen Muovere Veloce Consultancy Inc. (MVCI) to represent them here in the Philippines. Working hand in hand, the MVCI and JellyChip team aims to help Filipinos one charity gift at a time.
