6 ways apps are changing the third sector

4.8.2015

With over half of the world´s population now owning a smartphone, sharing our support, thoughts and ideas and interacting with those around us has never been easier.

Here are six ways apps are creating new, innovative opportunities for charities and NGOs worldwide.

1. Keeping track of your kindness:

It has been scientifically proven that helping other people boosts our own happiness levels and luckily there are an increasing a number of apps that let us record and monitor our good deeds. DailyFeats is an app that encourages people to break down their philanthropic goals into straightforward daily actions, helping them to make positive change through small habits. Another altruistic app is Ripil; described as the “world’s kindest app”,it is a free platform enabling companies, schools and communities to “inspire more good”.

2. Saving time:

You no longer need to set aside a set amount of time in order to carry out volunteer work, but instead can help others whilst on the go. The Do Something Good app enables users to support charitable organisations quickly and cost effectively. All you have to do is download the app, discover your preferred organisations and get donating. Whether you’re on your way to work or waiting for an appointment, apps such as this one allow you to make a big difference in the click of a button.
