The American billionaire gives money to the needy just like that: how to get it
Jack Dorsey, billionaire CEO of Twitter and Square’s payment application, gave a gift of $ 10 million to a group called Project 100, which in turn will give $ 1000 in cash to 10 families affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Writes about it Forbes.
Project 100 is a collaboration between the nonprofit organizations GiveDirectly, Propel and Stand for Children. GiveDirectly has been making cash donations to very poor families for more than seven years, first in Kenya and then in Uganda.
“The funds were transferred to me within a few minutes after the completion of the survey through the application Fresh EBT"Said Josette Denis, a mother of six who lives in the Bronx, New York, and received a gift of $ 1000.
The Fresh EBT app was developed by Propel to help people track food stamp balances on their mobile phones.
Since April 2010, Project 100 has raised $ 84 million, including a gift from Dorsey. The company's goal is to raise $ 100 million to give cash gifts to 100 American families. Other donors for Project 000 are former presidential candidate Andrew Young, billionaire Lynn Shusterman and Blue Meridian Partners, a nonprofit group donated by billionaires Steve Ballmer, Bill Gates, Sergey Brin and Mackenzie Bezos.
