Giving Back to School

We are super excited to have recently partnered with Kid President to create overlays in our app to help raise money for Pencils of Promise!

Kid President, who is also Robby, is the voice for all kids out there to help make a difference in the world. Kid President was first created in 2012, with a belief that kids have a voice that is worth hearing. Brad Montague and his wife never imagined their journey would take place as it has.

Pencils of Promise is a charity foundation that creates schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. They work in Laos, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Ghana and have broken ground on over 200 pre and primary schools in remote and under served regions.

Here are some of the overlays that were created:

International Beer Day

Happy International Beer Day everyone! International Beer Day is a celebration on the first Friday of every August founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. Since IBD has started in 2007, it has grown from a local size event to a worldwide celebration. According to Wikipedia, IBD has 3 main purposes:
