UN Foundation, Charity Miles Team Up to Raise $10k #VDay10k


This month the UN Foundation has teamed up with the popular social good app, Charity Miles, to raise money for great causes. The iPhone/Android app can be easily downloaded to your smartphone and every time you exercise – whether it’s running, biking, or walking –  you donate money to a deserving charity.

Through the UN Foundation’s #VDay10k campaign your miles can be donated to Shot@Life to provide lifesaving vaccines for children in need, Nothing But Nets that provides nets to fight against malaria, and Girl Up that  provides education for girls in developing countries – all worthy UN Foundation campaigns.

Charity Miles will donate 25 cents for every mile you walk or run, and 10 cents for every mile you bike.  Each time you finish your exercise you can share how far you’ve gone and also choose the charity where you would like your donation to go such as in the tweet below.

The person who goes the farthest distance will be featured at the end of the month by the UN Foundation.

  1. This is such a great idea! Does this apply to the USA only?
