Want to donate this 2016? Do so by downloading these free apps for Android and iOS.
There are so many of us who want to give back, but couldn’t because they don’t have that much. They wish they could spare a portion of their bonuses, but it is just, they failed to account their spendings thoroughly. As a result, the percentage, in which, they pledged to give to charity has gone away. So, they are disappointed, and they wish they could have more to give. But, it seems only a few will have a little extra to give. Others can just meet the ends, still many of us fail to meet our needs.
But, with these mobile apps, you can surely give back, without worrying if you will have enough before the payday comes. You might wonder, if this is possible or just a hoax. This is true. Many of us have mobile phones, right? And, a lot of us have the latest Android or iOS smartphones. If you own either an Android or iOS device, then you can surely donate without taking out your wallet from your pocket. This is through downloading these four free apps that let you donate to charitable causes.
Goal: Sponsors pledge $0.25 for every mile you walked or run and $0.10 for every mile you biked
Mechanics to Donate: Simply download and install the app. Sign up for an account. Once done, you can use it for donation. Each time you go out for a workout, you login to your account. Select the charity and select the type of activity that you will be doing, e.g. outdoor walking/running, outdoor cycling or indoor running. With the activity, the app uses your accelerometer and GPS to detect your distance and your movement. After the workout, you can simply stop the app and the miles you covered will be converted to dollars according to the goal above.
