Your Plate Could Help End Hunger

Posted Jan 24 2013 12:00am

Hey friends, I don’t have anything super cool to share today but I did want to pass along this awesome initiative/movement/generally cool idea for Katie at Sweettaterblog.

Plate Share

Plate Share takes something we already do and turns it into an automatic charitable donation with an online social slant guaranteed to make it go viral.

What if every time you dined out or bought groceries you could use an app on your phone to round your bill up to the nearest dollar with your extra change going to feed the hungry?

It’s simple: Give change. Make change.

And what if every time you did this you snapped a picture of your plate and shared it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram (#plateshare) and encouraged them to do the same? And they did the same and told their friends? Who then did the same and told their friends?


Katie is presenting her idea on January 25,at  Startup Weekend Charlotte  where she hopes to find a team of developers, designers, and (potentially) donors passionate and talented enough to launch Plate Share just 48 hours.

Here’s the catch: She only get 60 seconds. No visuals. No props. Nothin’. Just her spittin’ love like sparks and hoping it catches fire.

If you’re interested in Plate Share and want to help spread the word, here’s how you can help:
