The devastation and dire situation in Haiti due to the recent earthquakes have opened the hearts (and wallets) of people from all over the world. Donations have been pouring into aid agencies in hopes of saving lives and help rebuild one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere. Today, Weiner Family Studios have announced that all proceeds from sales this week of their iPhone app A Family Matters, will be donated to AmeriCares.
Family Matters is an iPhone/iPod touch application that allows families to enjoy deeper more meaningful conversations. Mr. Weiner says, “My family created Family Matters to help parents and children communicate more effectively. Unlike most applications targeted at children, this isn’t designed to “keep the kids busy. It is designed to help the family learn from and enjoy each other.”
The app is intended to help foster better communication between parents and children, so needless to say, it won’t appeal to you if you don’t have your own family just yet. However, if you do and would like to check out this family app that was recently featured in the App Store’s What’s Hot section, now would be a great time as your $1.99 will go into helping a good cause.
