One of the great things about having a smart phone is that there are so many apps that allow you to help others at no cost to you! One of these apps is called Charity Miles. If you're a big runner, walker, or biker, this is definitely the app for you!
Once you download the app, all you have to do is pick a charity, keep your phone on you, and start your walking/running/biking route. Charity Miles will track your distance, and for every mile that you walk or run, you'll earn 25 cents for the charity you chose! For every mile you bike, you earn 10 cents for that charity. How great is that? Right now, they are partnering with organizations like (RED), Stand Up to Cancer, Feeding America, Every Mother Counts, Autism Speaks, and several more, for various types of causes.
I've never been the biggest fan of running, but today I managed 1.5 miles for Feeding America! If you're a regular walker/runner/biker, or if you'd like to become one, check out the Charity Miles app!
On a side note, now that I'm back at school, I may not be able to post as often as I'd like to. I'm hoping to keep up with Twitter at the very least!
