GLAAD Receives Chappy Donation for Every New Conversation

Chappy has teamed up with GLAAD, a US non-governmental organisation that looks to influence society and change how the LGBTQ+ community is treated.

The partnership will run from now up until the end of 2019. Chappy is set to make a donation to GLAAD for every conversation that is started on the gay dating app.

Although Chappy is not revealing how much money will be donated per conversation, there is no cap on the amount that can be raised.

It’s hoped that the 650,000+ users will help to make hundreds of thousands of dollars for the charity.

Speaking to Cheddar, Chappy’s Managing Director Adam Cohen-Aslatei said: “A founding mission for us is to give back to the community and today we’re announcing a new partnership with GLAAD.”

“So not only should you feel compelled as a gay guy to use our app to find these great relationships with real people – but also every chat that you initiate will be helping to further and strengthen and grow our international community.”

Chappy recently underwent a major relaunch after its co-founders left the company, which included a re-designed colour scheme and users deciding if they’re in the mood for someone “cute” or “sexy”.

GLAAD has previously partnered with OkCupid to promote LGBTQ+ acceptance. OkCupid users can now add their preferred pronouns to their profile so other singles easily know how to address them.
