9 Causes We Will Be Supporting Through Donations

In the FAQ for, we wrote:

"This Life, Inc. is a for-profit business that actively supports non-profits and causes that make the world a better, more beautiful place. When you subscribe to HowHookup you get to choose a non-profit that you'd like us to support when we're making donations. You can also suggest other non-profits to add to our list of options."

A few have asked, "Why are you doing this, really?" Come on skeptics! It's pretty simple: we want our success to benefit others, beyond going on great dates.
