About Activistic

Activistic has designed micro donation apps, including Veterans Call, that connect you with worthwhile causes and donors all over the world, making it easy for you to join others in making a big difference with a little change.

Activistic is about micro donations that give the public control over how much they want to donate, which region they want their money to go to and what cause they want to benefit – all through a few simple steps on their mobile phone.

The key features of Veterans Call are:

  • A platform available to everyone;
  • Making it easy for anyone to donate in an affordable manner;
  • The donation appears on your phone bill – no credit cards or bank details; and
  • Minimizing the need for a charity to spend money raising money.

You can download and donate through the Veterans Call App or Website in around 2 minutes.

You choose how much you want to donate and the charity where your donation should go.

At any point you can stop your future donations to a particular charity by replying “STOP” to the charity-specific short code identified when you first agreed to donate.
