One thing that makes Skout stand out from other social media companies is that they donate to charities in order to help feed starving people. Skout not only does its own acts of kindness for people that are struggling, but it also encourages their users to do the same for others. Skout is currently announcing its efforts to people in their social media platforms so that they could get involved in the charitable efforts. Among the things they do is send virtual gifts which are converted into actual donations. The deal is for Skout users to send their friends a virtual bag of chips. For each bag that is given out, there will be a cash donation made to the Food Bank. The goal is 20,000 meals.
One of the main features of Skout is that it encourages people to actually meet each other in person unlike other social media platforms. People who meet up and become friends on Skout are more likely to meet each other somewhere. Skout also has a travel feature that allows users to find a good place to meet in various parts of the world.
Skout is putting its success to good use by participating in charities and getting involved in philanthropic pursuits. Starvation is one issue that is worth looking into Skout understands the importance of making sure that people who have less are able to eat and care for themselves. In San Francisco alone, a quarter of the residents are on the verge of starvation. Skout is really passionate about the residents in its community and wants to make sure that they are a part of the solution.
