Charitable Donations

The Happy Hints philosophy is based on spreading positive messages far and wide.  This is the reason we developed this simple and unique app. For us it's about making a difference, however small, especially to those who may be less fortunate than ourselves.  And in this spirit of giving, we have decided to give away 50% of the profits that Happy Hints makes. We will change the charities we donate to over the course of a calendar year.  To find out more, please click here.
