  2. 2. 1. Spare NYC
  3. 3. 1. Spare NYC Spare partners with restaurants to convert your change into hunger-ending contributions. The amount that you donate is the rounded up difference between your bill and the next dollar, so all donations are always $0.99 or less.
  4. 4. 1. Spare NYC That change then goest to a local food bank. What’s more, you’ll be able to track the amount of money you’ve donated and even earn rewards. Spare is currently operating in NYC only, but they hope to expand to other states as the company grows.
  5. 5. 2. Charity Miles
  6. 6. 2. Charity Miles Charity Miles is a charity app that costs you no money whatsoever. The only thing it costs is data. Marrying the GPS tracking ability of MapMyRun with a great cause, Charity Miles donates 10 cents for every mile biked and 25 cents for every mile walked/ran to a charity of your choice. The money comes from Charity Miles’ corporate sponsors.

  8. 8. 3. One Today Like the idea of charity, but don’t know where to donate? One Today let’s you speed date charities by introducing you to one a day. If you like the charity introduced to you, you can donate $1 and you can even share it with other friends via social media. One Today makes giving to a good cause fun and social.
  9. 9. 4. Share the Meal
  10. 10. 4. Share the Meal An initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), Share The Meal allows users to donate $.50 (or more) to ending world hunger. The WFP receives the funds and uses them to provide the meals. One fascinating feature of the program is that it focuses on different in- need areas at different times. Currently, Share the Meal funds are being concentrated on supporting pregnant and nursing mothers in Syria.
  11. 11. 5. Donate a Photo
  12. 12. 5. Donate a Photo Another app that doesn’t require to pay a cent, Johnson and Johnson’s Donate a Photo gives $1 to a good cause for every picture that you upload. These pictures are then featured in a gallery and are only used for promoting Donate a Photo (not for buying or selling anything else). Next time your out for brunch, take a picture of those bespoke hibiscus flower pancakes and upload it for a cause.
