The Gamindo app has more than a ten games each sponsored by a different company: puzzles, quizzes, memory games and even multi-player games and there are several non-profit organisations to which the gems can be donated such as the Ospedale dei Bambini Buzzi in Milan, Emergency, WWF, Save the Children and the Fund for the music and entertainment sector for artists in difficulties due to Covid-19.
Gamindo is therefore a platform where everyone is a winner: the players have fun and donate without spending their own money and the companies can self-promote in an innovative manner with a positive social impact. The non-profit organisations also receive funds at no cost while raising awareness about their work.
“Why not donate if you can do it for free and while you are having fun? 2.7 billion people play video games around the world and this figure is expected to top 3 billion in 2023” says Gamindo’s founder, Nicolò Santin. “The pandemic has accelerated the use of this form of entertainment by increasing numbers of people, who want some downtime and to have fun in an enjoyable virtual experience. Gamindo’s vision is to enable these people to convert their gaming time into donations to non-profit organisations. Basically, to let people donate at no cost to themselves while they have fun”.
