Rapidata Services Plc has launched the Friendship Powered Fundraising™ App for Facebook to the UK charity market. It is “the first ever event fundraising app that runs entirely within Facebook”. The app has been created by Rapidata’s technology partner Artez Interactive, based in Canada. The Friendship Powered Fundraising (FPF) App is designed to help people use Facebook to make the most of their network of friends to help them fundraise in their sponsored event, whether that is a walk, run, cycle or other chalenge event.  Once registered for an event supporters can share information about fundraising targets, accept donation payments, track progress and post updates and pictures about the events on their Facebook timeline. Unlike other ways of using Facebook for fundraising, they can do all this without having to leave Facebook to visit another site.

CEO and Chairman of Artez Interactive, James Appleyard added: “Our app is also first to be integrated across multiple channels, and it works perfectly on your mobile, tablet or desktop device.” Scott Gray, Managing Director of [url=http://www.rapidataservices.com]Rapidata[/url] commented: “This year there are 30.6 million Facebook users in the UK, and with an equal gender split and an age demographic spanning teenagers to pensioners (14 million over forty), the platform lends itself to Friendship Powered Fundraising”. http://rapidataservices.com/artez/rapidata-introduces-unique-friendship-powered-fundraising-app-for-facebook/
