What is viaGood?
viaGood is a mobile application that enables the world to be changed through good deeds. It is possible to save animals from extinction, protect Nature and to help people in need.
How does it work?
There are 41 areas in viaGood in which it is possible to help. Among others, protecting rainforests, removing plastics from oceans, preventing poachers from hunting elephants, promoting children’s education and assisting seniors. Users receive news about all these areas concerning specific global improvements, or where more aid is still needed. If a user decides to help, in one click he/she will be able simply to support the best local non-profit organization that provides aid in the respective area. At the same time, users learn how the aid works specifically and what else they can do, in addition to financial support (Daily Tips).
What makes viaGood special?
Each contribution of assistance simultaneously supports a campaign on the largest social networks, drawing attention to the relevant issue, and thus multiplying the effectiveness of the aid.
Moreover, users can interact with each other, appreciate the good deeds of other users, motivate each other and monitor the development and positive impact of their activities, as well as the activities of other users. This is a social network for all good people.
Building a better world
viaGood users are also building their own, better virtual world. Initially, this world is empty and gray. With each contribution to a good cause, the virtual world is expanded with a specific symbol (for example, when supporting rangers in the African rescue camp for the protection of critically endangered rhinos, the user will receive a symbol of a rhino in his world, which communicates to him and informs him about everything related to the protection of rhinos).
What does it look like?
viaGood is similar to Facebook, but instead of “Likes”, there is a simple promotion of good causes
viaGood is a bit like a computer game (e.g. SimCity), but the elements of building are only gained by supporting an actual good cause
viaGood is like a news reader, but you learn only about the development in the areas that you wish to support, and which you have already supported

Who selects non-profit organizations?
The non-profit organizations, to which part of the raised funds goes, are selected by the team of the viaGood Foundation, after careful consideration of many factors (reviews, ranking, direct aid ratio, local impact, size, stability and ability to meet their obligations). In the viaGood application, the best possible organization for the specific area is always available to the user. Another part of the funds will be utilized by the viaGood Foundation for campaigns highlighting the most serious problems facing the world today, and their solutions.
