Questions?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique.

Is a smart speaker required to use Helpen?

Nope! While we connect to smart speakers so helpers can hear right away how they're making a difference, we understand they're not for everyone. Ultimately, Helpen is meant to be a nudge to meaningful family discussions about helping others. The only thing you really need is each other.

Can we change the amount of the micro-donation?

Yes! Currently, the default donation amount is set to $1 for each helper. Once you start your Helpen session, there will be an opportunity for helpers to change their individual amounts to up to $5.

What ages do you recommend for Helpen?

Ages 5 - 12 are the prime range for Helpen. Please note: There are millions of children who may not find smart speakers inviting due to imperfect technology and challenges with speech. From the start, Helpen is built to include as many families as possible. If your child is able to say their name, they will be able to use Helpen right away.
