Last week I wrote about three social good apps that you should download right now. One of those apps is Charity Miles, which enables users to earn money for charity when they walk, run or bike. It a simple way to raise money just by exercising and a great way to stay motivated to go the extra mile.
Beginning today, the United Nations Foundation and Charity Miles are partnering for the rest of February to raise funds for a variety of United Nations Foundation campaigns, including Girl Up, where your miles will help a teen girl in a developing country safely attend school, Nothing but Nets where you will help protect a family from malaria, and Shot@Life where your miles will help to provide life-saving vaccines to children around the world that need it most.
All you need to do is download the Charity Miles app for free to your smartphone then select the United Nations Foundation campaign of your choice and whether you will be walking, running or biking.
Charity Miles will donate 25 cents for every mile you walk or run, and 10 cents for every mile you bike. At the end of your activity, you will be told how your donated miles will help the charity you’ve chosen. You can also share your donation with friends on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #VDay10k.
At the end of the month, The UN Foundation will feature the person who raises the most for the #VDay10k on its website and Facebook page.
Now download the app, get moving and have fun!
