Cricket legend AB de Villiers turns fan selfies into social impact with his new selfie-app called ABDCam
South African cricketing legend AB de Villiers, in partnership with the JET8 Foundation, today announced the launch of his own app called ABDCam that allows fans and users around the world to raise funds for youth in South Africa by posting photos and videos with AB de Villiers stickers and frames found in the app.
From today, fans and supporters in South Africa, India, and globally will be able to use the ABDCam app to customize photos and videos with AB de Villiers personal Geo-stickers and Geo-frames and earn JETS in exchange for their social influence throughout social media platforms.
JETS can be used to redeem a variety of rewards and to contribute to the youth-related social impact causes, supported by the AB de Villiers Foundation located in Pretoria, South Africa.
De Villiers aims to raise awareness for a range of charitable causes geared towards benefitting the youth in countries like South Africa, India and many other cricket-loving nations around the world.
De Villiers said with the launch of the ABDCam app and JET8 partnership: “I wouldn’t be here without my fans, they are incredibly close to my heart. For a long time, I’ve been thinking of a way to reward my fans for their engagement, whilst giving back to causes that I strongly believe in. With the birth of the AB de Villiers Foundation and my new official app, ABDCam, my fans can now have access to exclusive, cool ways to create their own content whilst helping kids around the world.”
JETS are rewarded to fans for likes, comments and shares of social media posts when customized using AB de Villiers’ special Geo-stickers and Geo-frames, exclusively found in the ABDCam app. Additionally JETS are rewarded when sharing the posts onto other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Currently, AB de Villiers has over 10 million fans across all social media platforms.
De Villiers added, “It’s a completely groundbreaking way of using social media technology, and I’m excited to partner with JET8 to raise the bar for social media fan engagement. Together, my fans and I can help carve a better future for our youth. I can’t wait for everyone to download ABDCam!” he added.
JET8 Foundation Co-founder, Mike Allen said: “World-renowned for his overflowing talent and all around-sports excellence, AB takes his breathtaking enterprise to new heights with his first “social impact” focused iOS and Android community app. ABDCam not only allows AB to connect with his fans in a whole new way, but it also turns his fans into advocates for causes close to his heart. We are proud to have our technology used by these global talents to help make the world a better place.”
