I made an amazing discovery the other day that i just want everyone to know about. You can run for charity using your smartphone now!
Charity Miles is an iPhone / Android App that allows you to track your outdoor activities and earn money for many different charities. I thought this was the most amazing app i have ever seen. It really has the potential to do some real good for the world. Not just for the charities that will get payments from them, but by giving people the motivation to get out there and exercise.
Running for charity has never been easier! When you open charity miles you choose which charity you want to donate too. There are options all over the board. From animal care toÂ ParkinsonÂ disease. So far i have been giving to the hungry with my runs. You also chose what type of exercise you are doing. The options are running, walking or biking. Biking only earns .10 a mile but walking and running are .25 a mile. It's not much but a little goes a long way. For example my 8 mile run today said it provided 16 meals to those who cannot afford them otherwise. I say that is pretty good!
You can also run Charity miles along side your music and other GPS tracking apps such as Endomondo. I didnt notice a significant battery drain from running this app like many GPS enabled apps do.
So if you are into running biking or just walking outdoors. download this app and give to charity while you get in shape.
Talk about a win-win situation!
