About HowGiving
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.  
Luke 6:38
  1. Why HowGiving?
    No one person can do everything necessary to help the world's impoverished, hungry, sick, and down-hearted. But each of us can do our respective small part. And if we all actually did ... can you imagine the result? If you're reading this, we're betting you've envisioned the same wonderful outcome. If there were only an app I can download to my phone that provided a service that helps me consistently acknowledge the important people in life and, indirectly, contributes to the betterment of mankind. Now THAT would something worth getting behind, wouldn't it? I know I'm in! Will your contributions through HowGiving® solve all the world's woes? Absolutely not. But with a service like this, we can come closer by pooling our resources and do our collective small part. That's for certain.
  2. What is GiveInstead?
    GiveInstead® is an app which automates what we truly intend, and would do if we weren't so distracted with our fast-paced lives: to consistently acknowledge those people and causes most important to us. Through GiveInstead, we take those honest intentions and carry them across the finish line ... on your behalf. Connecting your most important contacts from Facebook, LinkedIn (future), and your phone, adding special events like birthdays and holidays, then gathering the world's most worthwhile humanitarian charities and specific mission-based needs ... The GiveInstead® app provides a simple and elegant way to acknowledge those we most care for in life by giving - on their behalf - to those most in need in our neighborhoods, our country, and the world. The sum total motivation for HowGiving® is to fill the gap between our intentions to give consistently ... to show we care ... and our inability to do so, albeit understandably given our overly busy lives. In a world where there is never enough time, HowGiving® is your automated thoughtfulness.
A generous person will prosper;
whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Proverbs 11:25
