After President Trump's election, there was a boost in donations to the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood. Now so-called "rage donations" like these are easier than ever, reports Thrillist. Trigger, which Mashable calls "an amazingly passive-aggressive Twitter-based app," allows registered users to complete a donation simply by replying to an irksome tweet with a dollar amount, the handle of the chosen charity, and #TriggerGive.
"You get triggered, and you're pissed off. That's where we come in," says creator Isaac Alfton. The passive-aggressive part: the person you’re replying to will "know 100% that what they said caused a donation." But the app can also be used in other ways, Alfton says. For example, reading a story about the declining health of our oceans might prompt a user to donate to Oceana. In case of a typo, Trigger notes all donations can be amended within 24 hours.
