We are really excited to share this new product that bridges our online and offline giving. Two years ago HandUp launched as a way to donate to people in need through our site. What we heard from you, our donors, is that you also wanted a way to give directly on the street.

When you give a neighbor in need a HandUp Gift Card, you’re giving something more valuable than cash. The recipient redeems the card with local nonprofit partner Project Homeless Connect for goods and services, where they can learn about other available resources like housing or healthcare.

We're here to answer any questions you might have!

I just saw your product featured on VentureBeat. Amazing stuff! Will you do a Product Hunt Live AMA? Would love to hear your back story.

There were many reasons for this. It was recommended you instead donate to an organization with strong oversight and a track record I like that... Show More

It's great the givers get notified if the card was used. Fights that feeling of wondering if you're making any impact at all.
