The Meet Group Unites with Action Against Hunger to Feed Families

November 15, 2018

NEW HOPE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2018--The Meet Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MEET), a public market leader in the mobile meeting space, has teamed up with Action Against Hunger to offer a limited edition virtual gift in its MeetMe, Skout, and Tagged mobile applications to help children and families suffering from malnutrition this holiday season.

Action Against Hunger has led the global fight against hunger for almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries saving hundreds of thousands of lives each year. The organization is committed to doubling the number of children who receive urgent hunger care, from three million to six million by 2020.

“Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are from causes related to undernutrition, and roughly 821 million people go to bed hungry every night,” said Catherine Cook Connelly, VP of Brand Strategy for The Meet Group. “This Thanksgiving season, we want to bring awareness to hunger as a global issue. Hunger is predictable, preventable, and treatable and I know our community will come together and support families in need.”

The custom gift will be available for purchase in the MeetMe, Skout, and Tagged livestreaming apps to help raise money for this worldwide issue between November 15, 2018, and November 30, 2018. For every Action Against Hunger gift sent to broadcasters, The Meet Group will donate $0.25, up to an aggregate of $10,000 to Action Against Hunger. For more details, click here.
