Here’s a list of 5 charity apps for Android which you can use to donate to charity just by using the app. A lot of people are willing to help out and donate but sadly not everyone is able to do that, given the state that the economy is in. If you’re one of those who would like to help, but can’t afford to do with cash directly or you can make only small donations then you’re in luck.
Following list of make a donation apps are designed to allow people to help others, on small scale.
Charity Miles is a charity app for Android which will make a donation in your name based on the number of miles that you’ve gone through either running or ridding a bicycle.
The official rate at which charities are gonna be awarded donations in your name is 10 cents per mile for those who are ridding a bike, and 25 cents for those that run or walk. Charities that are supported to include Feeding America, Wounded Warrior Project, Stand Up to Cancer, Autism Speaks and more, see image above. App uses GPS to track your progress. To use it select a charity from the list, select either bike riding or running/walking and start doing miles. Each mile you make helps out a charity of your choosing, and it also helps you by making you healthier.
