WhoNews Charity Update

You might recall that iPhone Doctor Who news app WhoNews is donating current revenue to charity – well we’ve got a new update from developer Paul Gee concerning recent totals and a small enforced change to the fundraising.

The initial fundraising activity was for a “wish giving” charity and this amounted to £661.72/$1043.14 – proving the popularity of WhoNews and the quest to raise funds for this cause. Funds will be transferred to the associated charities in each country that the app was purchased in.

An enforced change to the fundraising however has resulted in a new charity being targeted – and from 9th – 23rd December all profits from WhoNews will be going to Cure Leukaemia, a charity that enables patients access to potentially life saving, ground breaking drugs and treatments. The charity supports the Haematology Centre at the University Hospital, Birmingham, UK.

Cure Leukaemia are delighted to be receiving support from WhoNews and the Who army. While the appeal only has 2 weeks left, this is stilla good opportunity to show your support if you haven’t already and aid a second charity in raising awareness of this campaign.

With iTunes you can send WhoNews as a gift to family or friends while donating at the same time. This is easily done by visiting WhoNews in iTunes and rather than clicking Buy App, click the little arrow to the right and select Gift App.

(Thanks to Paul)
