SKOUT, the app that allows people to network and meet new people from all around the world, has been doing some heroic polling in celebration of Superhero Day. According to an article an PR Newswire, SKOUT released a poll asking people about superheroes and wound up with some fascinating results.
For example, when asked who their favorite superhero was, it turns out that women prefer Batman and men prefer Superman. Batman pops up again for another noble reason; he and Robin are considered the best super friends by over half of people who responded. People are also big into the idea of immortality, with over one-third of people saying eternal life is the superpower they’d desire the most. Just behind that were the abilities to fly, possess super strength, and possessing the speed of the Flash.
SKOUT also found out something else that can strip away some of the mystique from superheroes and allow you to see it in everyday people. According to their polling, almost half of people say that it mainly takes a sense of selflessness.
With that in mind, SKOUT has decided to contribute to a superhero of an organization. For Superhero Day, anytime somebody gives a superhero-themed gift over the app, SKOUT will make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Greater Bay Area until one wish has been fully funded. The Make-A-Wish Foundation selflessly works to give children who are suffering from illness the opportunity to live out their fantasy for a day. The Make-A-Wish Foundation Greater Bay Area covers 17 counties in California and has granted 370 wishes in the past year, as well as 7,200 overall since the chapter opened in 1984.
SKOUT is partnering with this excellent charity for Superhero Day in order to empower the superheroes of everyday life. SKOUT exists in 180 countries and covers 16 languages. SKOUT was founded in 2007 and is based in San Francisco, California.
