Charitable donations are starting to become a staple in the budgets of millions of Americans. With so many charities, both local and global, to choose from, it can be hard to take the time to decide which charities to give to. Thanks to growing technology, there are a plethora of apps that can make donating as easy as clicking a button. Here are a few of the top charitable apps that you can download now to make a difference.
Check-in for Good
The Check-in for Good app takes the fundamentals of Foursquare and connects users with charitable causes that relate to the location they are currently visiting. If you would already be letting people know where you are on social media, implementing this app will be very easy.
