4 Ways to Give Back With the Click of a Button


These days, there is an app for everything even one to GIVE. You use them for money management and investing and for tracking your health and wellness, among other things. So why not use them for doing good in the world?

Here are some of the top charitable giving apps around.

Walk for a Cause with Charity Miles

This app does double duty – it tracks your exercise (whether you’re running, walking, dancing or biking) and it helps you give back. For every mile you move, you earn money for important causes from the app’s corporate sponsorship pool. You can even ask your friends to sponsor you to raise extra funds. Charity Miles works with over 40 charities that cover a variety of needs, from healthcare to animals to the environment and more. This year, get your health on track and feel good about doing it.

Fight World Hunger with ShareTheMeal

Created by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), ShareTheMeal supports a range of WFP operations, from school programs to food assistance emergencies. In the app, you can select the region you would like to help then share a meal with the tap of a button. Just 80 cents feeds a child in need. You can also create challenges, such as a giving drive for your birthday, unlock achievements through specific actions and receive content from the field to see your impact in “The Table” community.

Become a Sighted Volunteer with Be My Eyes

Give back in an unconditional way with Be My Eyes. This app connects blind and low-vision individuals with sighted volunteers who provide visual assistance through live video calls.

Available in more than 150 countries and in over 180 languages, the goal of Be My Eyes is to make the world more accessible for everyone.

Support Animal Causes with Walk for a Dog

Next time you walk your dog, log into the Walk for a Dog app to support the animal organization of your choice. With this app, all walks count, no matter the length; however, the more you walk, the more you can donate. Not only will you be getting healthy along with your four-legged friend, but you can feel good about helping other animals in need.
