For the price of one gift on Skout, users could help feed the hungry. This idea was proposed by Skout, and they did it on National Potato Chip Day. Throughout the day of March 14th of 2016, Skout offered a limited edition gift on their platform. The gift, of course, was a bag of potato chips in order to celebrate the fun holiday. Then, Skout decided to donate the proceeds of the sales of their gift to the San Fransisco Marin Food Bank. They successfully helped feed 20,000 people.
“Virtual gifting within our app is very popular,” says the co-founder and CEO of Skout, Christian Wiklund. This quote and story was originally written about by PR Newswire, and we’ll be sure to share that link at the end of this post.
Apparently, Skout wanted to show their kindness to their community by helping feed people at their local food bank, since they are a company that was founded in San Fransisco. Skout has been doing a number of kind deeds lately.
