"Resqwalk is a mobile app that enables you to raise money for homeless animals and earn prizes every time you go for a walk."
The App is a free download, available on most hand sets and seriously, if you can click, you can help out Rescues with a simple touch. You don’t even need to hold onto your phone to keep the App active. Start the program, select your favorite organization and then click on “Start Walk”. Boom!
On your way out the door, tuck that cell phone into your pocket or treat bag and forget about it until you get back home. The way cool thing is that the App will tell you how far you walked and how long it took you. Challenging your friends and family members to top you is a great way to raise additional funds but you may have to have a chat with Fido about skipping the sniffing stations if you are going for time and distance!
When you have had a particularly amazing ResQwalk, the App encourages you to share your success story on Facebook and Twitter. Super cool. It’s such a great feeling when you post that you walked long and hard and you get those comments and thumbs up! Even better is having people ask you all about ResQwalk and how they can become a part of the program.
And, not only does the App collect information for donations to Rescues, the user is rewarded at the end of each walk. When you check off that your walk is finished, a coupon for goods and/or services pops up on the screen which you can either dismiss or take full advantage of.
