MissionIR would like to highlight Virtual Piggy, Inc.(OTCBB: VPIG), the first e-commerce solution that enables kids to manage and spend money within a parent-controlled environment. The technology company delivers online security platforms designed for the Under 18 age group in the global online market, and also enables online businesses the ability to function in a manner consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and similar international children’s privacy laws. Virtual Piggy enables the Under 18 audience to play, transact and socialize in a secure online environment guided by parental permission, oversight and control.
In the company’s news,
Virtual Piggy announced that it will be providing its youth-friendly payment system to FlipGive, a digital give-marketing platform.
Give-marketing programs help brands create positive social impact in their communities while also driving sales. FlipGive connects brands to the $200+ billion fundraising market, essentially converting customers into a money-raising sales force. FlipGive is currently partnered with Johnson & Johnson, Lowes, Schwan’s, Aldo, Indigo, and more.
“Community giving is a key value for Virtual Piggy’s consumers, and FlipGive provides our user base with an excellent fundraising option that we’re really excited about,” said Dr. Jo Webber, Virtual Piggy’s Founder and CEO. “It’s important for all ages to be able to support causes they care about on a local, regional and global level.”
FlipGive’s Brand Director, Mark Marovich, added, “Virtual Piggy’s technology makes it much easier for kids and teens to directly support the fundraising efforts of their friends and people in their communities.”
Virtual Piggy empowers youth under 18 to make purchasing, saving, and other money management decisions for themselves within boundaries established by parents. Always 100% free to use, the technology serves as a family wallet that is available online or via mobile.
