Why Trust HelpAttack!?
Lots of donors today know what to look for when giving to a cause to make sure their donation is impactful and efficient. So, when a company like HelpAttack! gets in the picture, some donors are a little wary. Why wouldn’t they just donate directly to the cause? How can they be sure this is a good way to give?
HelpAttack! is a trustworthy way to donate
You aren’t donating to HelpAttack! In fact, we don’t hold your money for any period of time, or earn interest on it.

HelpAttack!’s business is in building great ways to give using social media. We know that security and efficiency are extremely important, and we choose partners who do the best possible job.
HelpAttack!’s donation forms are protected by SSL (look for HTTPS in your browser URL when donating).
Your data that we do collect is safe. We retrieve only the information we need to count your social media activity and drive the other features of HelpAttack! We don’t share your Facebook or Twitter content with anyone, and we don’t share your information with your cause if you don’t want us to.
HelpAttack! is efficient
Looking at transaction costs by percentage, HelpAttack! is around the middle of the pack for online giving tools. There are no setup, monthly, or per transaction fees at HelpAttack!, just a percentage. If the causes using our site do well, then we can keep operating. It’s that simple.
Please note that any site that claims 100% of funds go directly to the cause might not be telling the whole truth, or might be accounting for costs in a creative way. How much money, time, and effort did the cause have to spend to set up and maintain their donation channel?
HelpAttack! is all about your cause
We aren’t competing with causes for donor information, donor dollars, time spent online, branding, or in any other way. The idea of HelpAttack! isn’t that you come hang out on our site instead of your cause’s Facebook page. The idea of HelpAttack! is to make your time spent on Twitter, Facebook, and other websites more meaningful and impactful.
