Sean Rad Joins Board of Directors at Non-Profit ‘Good Today’

Sean Rad has become a founding board member of Good Today, a company that lets people donate small amounts of money to charitable organisations every day.

Users are given a simple way to help worthy causes by gifting as little as 25 cents each morning. They are presented with two charities, and get to pick where they would like to send their money for that day.

The former Tinder CEO became involved with the business just as it unveiled new branding; it was previously known as Good St.

Rad told TechCrunch: “Generosity is a learned behavior. If you think about the importance of waking up every single day, opening that email and learning about another cause, getting out of your own little bubble, very quickly it becomes an addictive habit.”

He continued on to say that he hopes people will discover exciting and inspiring charities that they will continue on to support by themselves.

Good Today for Teams is an extension initiative that encourages companies to sponsor their employees’ donations.

In August, Rad and fellow Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen invested in MOSH, an Australian startup that works to tackle sensitive men’s health issues.

Today it was announced that IAC’s bid to dismiss the Tinder founders’ lawsuit failed, meaning the trial will now go to court. Rad is acting as the lead plaintiff and was accused of stealing sensitive company files relating to the case at the start of the year.
