This cool animation video captures where the Give Better story began. As cool as it may be, the product didn’t work. See if you can guess why? Hint: think about what’s different now with the One Month Challenge model!  

We’ve left the rest of this page as it originally was when the app was still functional and on the app store. Enjoy a trip down memory lane. 🙂 

1 - Identify your 'meh'

Only you know what’s ‘meh’ for you. You can sometimes notice it when you pause before you purchase and ask, ‘will these new shoes truly bring me joy?’ 

But if there’s a particular area you want to focus on, why not challenge yourself to reduce or forgo for a month? Trim the gym and try free exercise. Swap out lunchtime sushi for a packed lunch. Get creative. Have fun.

2 - Give Better


Give Better your ‘meh’ spending by entering the amount you didn’t spend into the app.  You can do this manually. But we know you’re busy, so we’ve created some ‘quick pledges’ to save you time. 


3 - Track your Impact


The money you pledged is split between giving and saving based on your chosen ratio. Your savings stay in your account — it’s just money not spent, well done! For your giving pledge, after every $10 we automatically transfer that amount to your chosen charity. 


Instead of ‘meh’ spending, why not save for things you know will bring you joy. Your next date night. A roadtrip with friends. Or reducing financial stress by paying down your mortgage. Nice going! 

4 - Experience the Joy!


Salivate over the impact of your giving. Science tells us giving often makes us happier than spending on ourselves — so much so, you can actually detect the difference in your saliva … Intrigued? Learn more here.   



Let’s be done with mindless spending and buyer’s remorse. So you’ve paused to consider … and realised that, yep, let’s bring on that second glass of wine. Good for you. Go ahead and buy it. Savour the Moment
