Remember the generous startup that donated $100 to my half marathon training after its #ShowSomeLove campaign? Everydayhero, which was founded in Australia, is arriving in the U.S. in April to transform the giving experience by offering people a way to track and see all the good they do for causes they are passionate about. They’re launching a platform that not only allows people to raise and donate money to nonprofits, but it takes the notion of giving a step further. It allows users to raise money and track their Giving Footprint™ to measure, monitor, and amplify everything they put forth when giving to a cause.
The Giving Footprint™ acts as a visual window into people’s giving activities to quantify everything they do when supporting a cause — miles run, hours spent volunteering, voice amplified across social media, etc. As a runner raising money for blood cancer research through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I think this is a fantastic tool to remind you and your community that every ounce of effort should be captured and celebrated. It’s not just about the miles run, but also the time spent spreading awareness for the cause. No matter which organization you’re choosing to support, everydayhero can help.
To celebrate its U.S. launch, everydayhero is giving TWO of my readers the opportunity to win a black Fitbit Flex. They hope that these fitness trackers will give you the motivation to get involved, go torch some calories, and give back. To be ready for the everyday hero launch next month, preregister for more information. Good luck entering the giveaway!
