I’m ready to change the way I think about donating!

Love this app!! Once I understood how many different ways you can give and how you can be thoughtful in so many different ways, I am very on board with this platform. Let’s all change our behavior by giving and giving gratitude all at once!

Easiest & best feeling way to say thank you

This takes five mins at most! When someone does you a favor or if you need a quick way to say thank you that isn’t over the top - just think about what they care about and then donate to that cause in their name! THIS. IS. GENIUS.

My friends feel known and loved and HEARD when I donate on their behalf to a cause they love!

inLieu is easy, efficient, and empowering! I love that I can find a nonprofit close to everyone I love and give on their behalf. Birthdays, Holidays, and sometimes “just because” mean so much more when you’re choosing to make an impact!!
