Arguably, one of the most significant quotes of many superhero films is, “with great power comes great responsibility.” The line came from one of the Spider-Man movies, but it is a line that is true about any human being. Everyone has power, and it is up to that individual to wield it for the greater good or not.
How SKOUT is Giving People a Chance to be Superheroes
PR Newswire just published a piece regarding real-life superheroes and an effective app that is giving people a chance to change the world.
SKOUT conducted a survey where it showed that three out of four people think that helping others and showing compassion is what makes someone a superhero. A group of people were adamant about what superhero work is all about, and they believe it is about being selfless. That number of people was 44 percent of all the individuals that participated in the survey.
The survey also showed that many people are hoping to someday be superheroes. The number of people who aspire to someday do something heroic is 80 percent. These numbers helped propel SKOUT into the spotlight.
What the SKOUT app does is give people an opportunity to give a superhero gift to a friend. The gift can be bestowed on anyone that you want, and it could be done more than just once. The great thing about endowing someone with the superhero gift is that SKOUT makes a financial contribution to organizations like SF-Marin Food Bank, Muttville and Cat Town.
SKOUT app has actually brought awareness to the people about things like the 30,000 people who are suffering from hunger in the San Francisco Marin Area.
The app itself is just a social media platform that connects more than 180 countries and can be translated for up to 16 languages. The company was founded back in 2007, and it already has seen some great results. The people who participate in SKOUTS also have the opportunity to meet like-minded people who understand the responsibility that they have towards their fellow human beings.
And, if for no other reason, try to use the app to give a gift to a deserving friend who might want to know about SKOUT and their efforts to help people all around the world. Perhaps, there is a reason why superhero movies are on the rise in American cinema, and it could be because people have a hunger to change the world. Thankfully, SKOUT is giving people that venue they hunger for.
