September 2011 marks the launch of Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month and to raise both awareness of the month and funds to support the charity, The Eve Appeal have launched a very important iPhone app. The App which is available to download for free and every kiss sent will provide generate £1 for The Eve Appeal. Hannah Noble, Community Fundraising Manager for the charity gave us a little insight into what the campaign is all about. Here at iPhoneBloggers.co.uk we’re asking that not only do readers support this app by downloading it, but also for any tech/iPhone bloggers to add a writeup on their own sites/blogs as well.
‘The Eve Appeal’ is a new and exciting charity app which has been developed to raise funds for gynaecological cancer research charity, The Eve Appeal. The app is a completely new venture for The Eve Appeal and allows users to support the ‘kiss of life’ campaign taking place during Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM) in September.
The design of the app is bold and stylish and the sender has two options – to either take a photo of their smooch or choose one from a fantastic selection of cartoon kisses. Once a kiss has been photographed or selected, a message can be added and together both are sent to the recipient via email. The sender can view their sent kiss on the campaign website, www.gcam11.org.uk
iPhone users can also text “Eve” to 70800 to receive a direct download link to the app.
