The 'Giveafish' Project Allows Users to Buy Gifts for Those in Need

Brothers Zach and Aron Cutler have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their crowdsourced giving platform called 'Giveafish,' which helps to bridge the gap between those in need and those who have the means to give. The unique approach to charitable donations allows generous givers to purchase personal and tangible items that will directly benefit the recipients.

Giveafish works by displaying real-time listings of items people need or want, such as a warm winter jacket, software for starting a new business or even crucial medical devices. Other users can then purchase these exact items for the recipient with 100 percent transparency and personalization. The items are purchased and shipped through a partnership with Amazon, ensuring that all the transactions are secure and reliable.

The crowdsourced giving platform is unique in that it provides specific items for those in need, rather than simply sending monetary donations to a whole charity or a particular cause. Giveafish provides an unparalleled opportunity for anyone in the world to give back in a personal and meaningful way.
