The 'Oven Bits Instead' App Promotes Giving to Charity

 - May 4, 2012
References: instead &
The 'Oven Bits Instead' app is a micro-donation app for iOS smartphones and tablets that encourages people to forgo buying a cup of coffee or other small purchase in favor of putting that money toward a good cause.

The non-profit company created the application to put daily purchasing into context and give users the opportunity to exchange a small, daily purchase for a donation to their charity of choice. Austism Speaks and The American Cancer Association are two examples of charitable organizations partnering with the company. Users can also suggest a charity that they would like to donate to.

Although the company does take 5 per cent of the donation to cover operating costs, the application is a reminder of how a few bucks here or there can make a big difference when going to the right place.
