NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HouseTab, www.myhousetab.com, a new mobile application that combines social networking with mobile payments has partnered with Food Bank For New York City to raise funds for New Yorkers in need during the holiday season. Each time someone registers with HouseTab, the company will donate $1, which helps provide 5 meals, to Food Bank through January 3, 2015. Additional donations will be made every time someone uses the app to pay their tab or send drinks or food.
“HouseTab is a revolutionary app that lets users connect, send drinks or food to their friends, chat with others when they’re out, and pay tabs in a bar or restaurant, all via their phone. And since the holidays are a time when people are generous and want to Pay it Forward, we are thrilled to partner with Food Bank For New York City to help raise funds and provide meals to those in need. And better yet, the more users transact in HouseTab, the more we will donate to Foodbank. We are encouraging New Yorkers to share this program with their friends on social media as an easy and fun way to support the work of Food Bank during this holiday season. To show our appreciation, we’re also sending every new user a free drink via the application,” said HouseTab CEO Andrew Tauber.
“We are very thankful to HouseTab for their support and innovative way of contributing to those in need. Right now, one in five New Yorkers relies on a soup kitchen or food pantry to eat, including one in five children. This is a great opportunity for New Yorkers to do some good and make an impact on the fight against hunger during the holidays,” said Silvia Davi, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer of Food Bank For New York City.
