About ThatHelps

ThatHelps was created for one simple reason: to help you improve our world. Our app is easy, fun, and social. You can discover, create, and influence positive change for the interests you care about most. The app’s core features support this mission to help you do more good, more often:

  • Opportunities. On our app, you can create and publish your own calls to action, called Opportunities. (No idea is too small!) You can also sort, discover, and join thoughtfully vetted Opportunities that other people have posted. The more people who join the complete an Opportunity, the better!
  • Helping News. Don’t you want to know about the good people are doing every day? We do. This is why we created the Helping News feed that’s just about who’s helping what Interests. You can share your own helping news and show off your accomplishment. You can also thank someone else for taking action by clicking the praise hands icon. Our research team also vets the news, so you can be sure what you’re seeing is real.
  • Rewards and impact tracking. On ThatHelps, you can earn badges and rewards for the good you do. Visit your profile to track your cumulative impact and influence. We think a little competition is a good thing, so we encourage you to visit other members’ profiles to see how your impact stacks up!
  • Healthy social networking. ThatHelps is also a community of people who want to improve the world. We took the positive elements of social networks—sharing and connecting—and combined it with our Opportunities, positive news, and impact tracking. Our app is built to inspire optimism, boost your mood, and inspire you to take action.

We’re unapologetic optimists. We can make a difference. Let’s do some good together.

You may see a business or a nonprofit on the app. Our vetting model assesses the efficacy and impact by reviewing reports and rankings from sources including Guidestar, Better Business Bureau, the Wise Giving Alliance, and Charity Navigator. We examine each organization’s effectiveness and transparency with regard to fundraising efforts and executive compensation.

We also look at the qualitative aspects of an organization, such as their reputation in the industry, news reports, endorsements, volunteer feedback, testimonials, and impact stories.

We love working with businesses and nonprofits who are making a difference. If you're interested in a potential collaboration, email info@thathelps.com to get in touch with a team member!
