Thanks to the leadership and quick acting of Beth Kanter and Sue Anne Reed, there’s now a petition is up on Care2 focused on the fact that Apple’s iPhone app policy does not allow nonprofits to gather donations via the mobile phone platform. You can also join the conversation on Gizmodo about the same issue, “Why Does Apple Make Donation Apps So Hard?”
As Beth shared in your post:
“I love my iPhone,but I don’t want to support a company that is so nonprofit unfriendly. Since none of these in-App donation challenges apply to the Android – as soon as my contract is up, I’m getting an Android. But, since I have a few more months on my contract, I’ve left a comment on this post asking Apple to reconsider its policy. If you think having the ability to make in-App donations through iPhones without hefty fees or hassle – please send Steve Jobs a message now by signing this online petition.”
What do you think? Did you sign the petition – why or why not? Would love to hear from you!
