Almost everyone has smartphones these days. People use smartphones for buying and selling, online courses, learning and exploring new things, etc. So why not use your phone for a good cause like giving charity. Of course people today may not have time or money for giving charities, but technology has made things very easy, so much so that you can sit in the comfort of your home and perform beneficial deeds using the little technology in your pocket. Following is a list of five best apps so far that support charity:
This free app allows you to earn donations as you sweat. Track your exercise miles with the charity miles app and earn money, which will be donated to needy as charity. Not much hassle needed as many people frequently exercise and work out. Plus, it can be a great way for those who don’t do exercise as it can motivate them to do so in order to donate charities. It will give such lazy people double benefits.
The Instead app suggests small changes to your daily routine like brewing your own coffee instead of buying it or renting movies instead of going to the theater to create savings that can be donated to water-saving projects etc. What’s really nice is that Instead will track all of the time you agreed on to give to charity instead of doing something else. Keeping a log like that reminds you of the good work you’ve done and the charities you’ve helped. Even if you only give $4 instead of buying a coffee, you can make a real difference. This is the beautiful purpose of this instead app. Without wasting your time on unimportant things, you could be unknowingly taking part in productive activities like charity projects which have a positive impact on the destitute.
Donate a Photo
Taking pictures might as well be the most natural task in the world—after all, at its root, it’s a good act of preservation. Johnson and Johnson rewards you with a 1 dollar charitable donation for sharing photos on their network, which can be used for any desirable charity projects. So the time you waste on snap chat and selfies every day can be more meaningful and obviously productive. You could share beautiful memories of yours online and this in turn will give you a small decent donation, which could change so many lives across the globe. Small drops of water make a mighty ocean. So change we can make.
A charity app that reminds you of donating blood to the destitute and keeps your blood donations on trade. Every 2 seconds, someone in the US needs a blood donation for which we can’t open up our wallets or turn on our phones to provide the blood donations that are needed every day, but with the DonorReminder App, you can track your blood donations to stay on top of your obligation and keep track of when to donate again.
Share the Meal
An app that fights global hunger through the UNW food program. Simply tap the app and give how much you wish. There are 821 million malnourished people in the world today. Approximately one in nine people do not get enough food to lead a healthy life. Hunger and malnutrition are the top risks to health worldwide — more than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. The good news is that hunger is entirely explainable. It costs just US$ 0.50 to feed one child for a day. We waste so much food and have little value for it. We eat what we like and the rest of our food will go to the bins. So why not utilize this golden opportunity to feed the poor and hungry people.
These are just a few instances of earning good deeds, but the internet is flooded with thousands of interesting apps that allow you to donate for eradicating hunger and poverty or for providing water, etc. Download any of these apps and make a difference in the lives of these poor people. At the same time be thankful to the all mighty God, who has given us so much: food clothing and shelter. These are the blessings that every calamity and poverty-stricken person dreams of.
