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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
