Passing a homeless person on the street often stirs up an instinctual desire to help, but handing over a cash donation is not always the most positive action, since the money will only provide a very short term solution. We have seen a number of initiatives offering alternative ways to help — such as the WeShelter app, which informs outreach teams about homeless people in need and simultaneously unlocks donations from corporate sponsors. Now, HandUp gift cards are another such tool — enabling citizens to provide those in need with access to the food and products they need, as well as connecting them to services and resources to help get them off the street.
