Giving Tuesday

As we enter the Christmas season, I want to share two ways to give that won’t cost you a penny and will take just a few minutes. The Charity Miles app lists more than 35 different charities that you can choose to donate to every time you do an outdoor walk/run, indoor walk/run, or outdoor bike ride.

Simply pick the charity you’d like to support and start moving.

Various corporate sponsors donate funds to your chosen charity. Bikers can earn up to 10 cents per mile and runners earn up to 25 cents per mile.

The Donate a Photo app allows you to post one photo per day.  You choose the cause you would like to support and Johnson & Johnson donates $1.00 per photo.

I love scrolling through the list of wonderful causes listed on these apps and selecting my charity du jour.  Taking a few extra seconds to turn on the app as I head out for a run or choosing a daily photo to donate effortlessly contributes a dollar or so to a truly worthy cause.

You don’t need to be a runner to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. A walk around your home or a stroll through the neighborhood can result in a meaningful donation to a deserving charity.  Although there is no stipulation that donated photos be recently snapped we are certainly entering the season where  there will be no shortage of photo ops.

I hope you will consider giving these two easy-to-use apps a try. Share this idea with family and friends and let them enjoy the gift of giving, as well.

Happy Giving!
