Are you one of the many people that would love to get involved in a charitable cause but never really does because you don’t have a lot of time to spare? If you answered yes, then Orange’s recently released ‘Do Some Good’ iOS app might be the ideal answer.
According to a recent article by Darren Allan over at techwatch.co.uk, the ‘Do Some Good’ application — which is free to download from the Apple App Store — is aimed at those who don’t really have an entire day to invest in a charitable cause, but do want to spare some time doing good.
Orange says that lots of little bits of help all add up to create a big impact for different charitable organizations. Rather than reading a month-old magazine while you’re waiting for a doctor’s or dentist’s appointment, you could be taking on a small task on your smartphone instead.
For example, you could take part in a survey for a charity, in order to help them out on the research front. Every action on the app is supposed to take just five minutes to complete. Other than the feeling of satisfaction that you’ve helped out in some way, the app also rewards those who participate.
The network operator will make all those who complete a total of 60 separate tasks eligible for rewards from the Orange RockCorps Collective, including free tickets to music gigs. Orange intends on expanding the ‘Do Some Good’ app to other platforms at a later date.
