What is Amp Your Good?
We were founded based upon the idea that we could help everyone Amplify their Good - to make their good intentions have the greatest impact.
What is the mission of Amp Your Good?
We are all hard-wired to give and help others. But we are also busy in the lives we lead and many times don't know the best way to help. Amp Your Good's mission is to make it easy and fun for people to have the greatest impact when they are helping others.
How can I amplify my good?
Our platform makes it easy to set up and run a food drive. We help food drives raise more food and ensure that every donation makes a difference. Besides raising healthy food, some of the food drives on our platform are also designed to reduce food waste and support local farming.
What does it cost to use the Amp Your Good platform?
There is no cost to run a campaign or drive on our platform. There is also no cost for nonprofit organizations to use our services. We are only paid when someone buys healthy food to donate to a drive that they are supporting.
Is Amp Your Good a non-profit organization?
We are a socially conscious, for-profit company. Our platform is used to host food drives to support hunger organizations and for people to purchase healthy food to donate to those drives. People pay us a price comparable to what they would pay if they drove to the store to buy it.
What kind of food can be raised?
People who struggle with food insecurity also struggle with diet related conditions like diabetes, obesity and hypertension due to lack of access to healthy food. Food drives can be used to raise perishable food such as fresh fruits and vegetables, organic food, whole meals and healthy snack foods.
