good for exercising

This app is the epitome of humanistic work; the app is easy to use, and kids can select from a variety of charities to support, including those that support animal welfare, education, and health. As they log miles, the app will track their progress and donate money to their chosen charity based on the distance covered. Not only does Charity Miles encourage kids to stay active and engaged in physical activity, but it also teaches them about the importance of giving back to their community and supporting causes they care about. This can be a valuable lesson for kids to learn at a young age, as it can instill a lifelong commitment to philanthropy and social responsibility. Overall, this app is pretty good and I recommend.

This app is a terrific tool for teens and adults to turn their fitness goals into community service as they earn donations for national charities. Charity Miles - Running & Walking Distance Tracker may inspire teens and adults to get moving, or it can give people already in motion a larger purpose to their fitness routines. Being able to choose charities from a long list of well-known, national nonprofit organizations and watching how far you've walked, how many sessions you've used the app, and how much money has been raised for each group is really motivating. This app exemplifies the credo "The best way to reach your goals is to help others reach theirs."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
