Hopefully you’ve heard all about our Munch Madness event, are planning to come, and have bought your tickets! If you haven’t, make sure to reserve your spot now! The next thing you’ll want to do is install the app Givelify on your phone.
At Munch Madness the chefs will be bidding on challenges and bonuses thrown at them throughout the evening. At some point you will be called on to boost the budget of your favorite chef by giving a real donation to Dig IN. We’ll then give your chef the credit in virtual dollars to use for bidding.
(For easy to follow instructions on Givelify, check out this video) Givelify is an app designed by an Indianapolis company to help churches and nonprofits easily collect donations. We actually sat down and had a beer with Givelify’s Matt Chandler. Their office is just a few blocks away from ours and they are an honest company doing great work, so we think you can feel good about installing the app. You may not need it after Monday, but if you do fundraising or are a charity we encourage you to investigate Givelify!
When you open your app at the event, you will see a map with an icon for Dig IN right at the center. From there, it’s as simple as clicking on the icon, tapping a donation amount, and selecting your chef. Remember, the chefs will be running out of credits as they buy up speedbumps for their opponents, and will rely on you to fill their kitty. You can support the chef and Dig IN’s mission at the same time.
We can’t wait to see you at the event, and don’t forget to install Givelify ahead of time.
