CHARITY

Help Others
CHARE’s goal is to help others – namely on several levels at the same time: Through the use of its app, CHARE helps people to exchange information purposefully and securely. CHARE users benefit from a communications app with which they can organize all the information that is important to them in a clear and streamlined way. At the same time, the users will be donating to good causes without spending any money themselves. The charitable organizations in question will receive additional financial support, enabling them, in turn, to help others.  Those who use CHARE will be donating 4 cents per online hour to a charity of their choice ­ without having spent a single euro. With 1,000 users, € 300 per month can quickly accumulate for charitable causes. And the more often that CHARE is used, the more money will go to the organization that is being supported.
How did the Idea For CHARE Originate?
I spent part of my childhood in South America and experienced the inequality between rich and poor at very close quarters. I, therefore, understood the need to help others at an early stage. Later, in my work as a company adviser, I was repeatedly confronted with inadequate communication possibilities in companies. The idea for CHARE arose from my personal experiences, the desire to improve communication, and the thought of using advertising for charitable purposes for once, instead of for commercial reasons.” (Bjorn Beyersdorff, founder of CHARE)
Whom Does CHARE Works With?
CHARE doesn’t only support large charitable organizations, but smaller and locally ­active aid organizations as well. This broad alignment of partnerships allows personal commitment to a variety of topics. The current list of supported organizations can be found here.
Donation First
CHARE is not a non­profit organization, but a “donation­ first company”. We make sure that donations go where they belong, i.e. to the organizations that the donors want to support. Only then do we pay our own costs and invest in our growth ­ and even then, only up to a certain limit. The remaining funds will again benefit certain projects, as agreed upon by the members of CHARE. The more people use CHARE and the more often they communicate with it, the higher the amounts of donations and the budget for additional social commitment will be.

CUSTOMIZATION
Businesses can change the main colors of CHARE to their own corporate identity and customize the App with their own logo. Companies that want to use CHARE for internal communication can also get an ad­-free version for a fee.
SECURITY
As a German company, CHARE fully complies with strong privacy and data protection needs. CHARE is a secure and completely encrypted communications App that offers its users full control over their data.
The protection of confidential data and privacy is paramount. No personal data is collected or stored. Sent messages are not tracked. Once data has been deleted, it is immediately and irrevocably removed from all devices. No matter how big your group is, whether someone is online or offline, you can rest assured your deleted content is no longer accessible to anyone.
