Got Your 6 Now Available on Veterans Call Micro Donations App
NEW YORK and WASHINGTON (June 15, 2016) — Veterans Call, an industry-leading new app that enables Americans to give back to veterans, active-duty military and their families, announced today that Got Your 6, one of the top U.S. philanthropies in the veterans sector, has joined its roster of trusted veterans’ charities. Got Your 6 is a campaign that unites nonprofit, Hollywood, and government partners to empower veterans and strengthen communities across the nation.
Veterans Call connects Americans with a national community of donors through a novel and unique app. By downloading and with a few simple clicks, Americans can make a small, secure donation ($1.25 or $2.50 weekly) to one of ten trusted veterans’ charities, including Got Your 6. Veterans Call utilizes patent pending technology, adding the small donation to a user’s monthly phone bill, so no additional bank or credit card details are needed.
In just a few short months the app has amassed over 50,000 downloads. With 85 percent of each donation going to charities such as Got Your 6, Veterans Call operates at an efficiency level high enough that were it a non-profit it would receive an ‘A’ ranking from CharityWatch. CharityWatch considers a charity to be highly efficient when their end calculations produce a program percent of 75 percent or higher.
“Our new partnership with Veterans Call provides Got Your 6 the opportunity to personally engage and connect with new donors in our community through an innovative app,” said Bill Rausch, Iraq War veteran and executive director of Got Your 6. “We kicked off our partnership at our 6/6 Day of Service, held on D-Day, in Washington, D.C., and now that we’re available on the app for donations, we look forward to leveraging our partnership in many more future campaigns, programs and events.”
“Millions of Americans have answered our nation’s call to serve, now it’s our duty to support. At Veterans Call, we are thrilled to partner with Got Your 6 and to have contributed to their 6/6 Day of Service, held on D-Day, cleaning and restoring the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.,” said Dylan Breslin-Barnhart, Veterans Call Inc.’s Vice President of North America. “Got Your 6 positively shapes perceptions about veterans and through a variety of programs, helps empower them in society once they return home.”
