5 Apps that can make a difference

We wake up in the morning, and the first thing we do is to power up our mobile to check out today’s weather, read the latest news, play our favourite game or even pay our bills before we have to get up. It is so easy to download apps to be informed, increase our productivity and be entertained, so why not check out some apps that make it simple for us to get involved and do something for the greater good?


Here are our favourite apps: 

 

1. CHARITY MILES 

 

Move with Purpose.
Earn Money for Charity.

 

Walking and Running Distance Tracker. This app tells you how many miles you covered during your workout. Plus, by using Charity Miles you also earn money for your chosen charity based on every mile you move. This app is free with corporate sponsors like Johnson & Johnson donating to the charity of your choice - the harder you work out, the more money  you raise. So far, Charity Miles members have earned over $2 million for more than 40 charities.


2. ONE TODAY

 

Give a little. Change a lot.

 

This app by Google is easy to use and helps you to find new non-profit organisations to support. The app will notify you each day of a different non-profit group to check out based on your interests. You can offer to donate between $1-$10, or set up a matched donation to rally your friends on social media and collectively contribute even more money. Google’s One Today app is interesting for several reasons. For one, the app makes it simple for you to search and screen for worthy causes to donate to. Google lets charities submit details about their projects, but so far, the app appears to be populated only with non-profit organisations that already have a relationship with Google.org, the search giant's charity division. 


3. ELBI

 

 

Where Love Unlocks Change

 

Making a difference has become easy. By connecting you to causes across the world, Elbi helps you do little things for the greater good and have fun while you’re doing it. Sign up and start being creative straight away. Pick from three daily deeds to connect with causes. Use the create tool to send a drawing, snap or message. Love the cause or other people’s creations to donate $1 and if someone loves yours, then that’s them donating $1 to the charity you helped.     


 4. INSTEAD

 

Micro donations.
Macro impact.

 

This app lets you integrate philantrophy into everyday life by giving up small things that can have a major impact. The app provides you with suggestions of things to do without. For instance, rather than splurging on a Starbucks coffee, you could make your own and give the money saved to a charity of your choice.


5. SHARE THE MEAL

 

The world’s first app against global hunger

 

This app is an initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme. When you download the app you can tap to donate as little as $0.50 to provide a meal for a child. This app is focusing its efforts on donating to children at the Za’atari refugee camp in North Jordan. It also encourages giving by comparing your giving with how many meals your friends have provided.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Good response in return of this difficulty with firm arguments and telling everything concerning that.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Great blog!
