Charity Miles is a wonderful app that provides a way for those who bike, walk and run to support a charity while enjoying a favorite activity. Just access the Charity Miles app, select the activity (walk, run, bike), select the charity you would like to support, and then start moving. Charity Miles tracks the time and the distance, so you’ll know the impact you’re having on your health. The good news is that a Charity Miles sponsor will donate to the charity you selected for every mile you walk, run or bike. When finished with your activity, you can choose to post to Facebook or Twitter to encourage your friends to participate.
Tonight I also thought of a clever way to encourage my 13 year old stepdaughter to pull herself away from the computer, TV and iPhone, as well as support her goal of attaining funds for the next One Direction Concert. Now she will earn $1.00 for every Charity Mile for walking the dogs. So…..she gets exercise, the dogs are happy, and a charity gets some much needed support. Now that’s a trifecta.
So the next time you take a stroll, jog or bike around the block, be sure to login with Charity Miles to support your favorite charity and don’t forget that you can engage your kids in the fun too.
