GBTQ dating service Adam4Adam has announced it made a $9,310 donation to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) on World AIDS Day earlier this month.
The sum comprised half user donations, all collected on 1st December, and a matched sum from the platform’s executives.
The campaign has now run for four successive years. The app and website lists user health as one of its core values, and supports those looking to get tested for venereal diseases with online information.
“We’ve always supported our community through the years, and partnering with ETAF each December is natural for us,” says David Lesage, Chief Operating Officer.
“We love that 100% of donations go toward providing grants for domestic and international programs that offer direct- care services to people living with HIV and AIDS.”
Adam4Adam also hosts health specialists in-app, giving them unique user profiles so they can interact with singles.
Mainstream dating app happn has also announced it is taking action against HIV/AIDS in the month of December.
The Paris-based startup is teaming up with RED, an organisation which focused on awareness and prevention in eight African countries.
Founder of happn Didier Rappaport told Charity Digital News: “Despite great scientific advances over the years, we must remain mobilised to continue the fight against AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases.
“The heart of happn is to help singles find love, and the only way to freely live that adventure is for each and every person to feel safe. We are happy to announce our support of [RED] in their yearly holiday shopping campaign.”
