Starting today, we’re excited to start showing you the total amount of money being earned for each charity. This update better reflects the core foundation and mission of Charity Miles: that as a community, we have the power to make a bigger impact than any one of us can alone.
You’l be able to see this change when you’re moving with the app, where it says “TOTAL EARNED THIS TERM.” (A term, in Charity Miles years, is from June 1-May 31.) We’ll be updating each charity’s total on a daily basis. But please note that these figures are subject to review at the end of the term.
In our first three years, we moved over $1.2 million to charity. This challenge term, we’ll proudly earn at least another $530,000 for our charities. As we bring in more sponsors, the sponsorship pool for each term will increase. We can’t thank you enough for all of your amazing support that makes this possible!
We’re also excited to lay the foundation for some other exciting updates to come later this spring. Amongst other things, we’re working to integrate with your phone’s Health Kit, as well as devices like FitBit and smartwatches. We’re also working to decrease the steps necessary to use the app—so that it’s easier to make your miles matter.
Of course, this is all a work in progress. Therefore, we truly appreciate your constructive feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please just reply to this email. Also, if you’d like to apply to beta test some of our new updates before they are released publicly, please click here to apply.
Thanks again for all that you do to make Charity Miles such an amazing community. Keep up the great work!
All the best,
