No one likes a Grinch during the holidays, so rather than wrinkling your nose at all the overblown gift-giving, why not do something nice for those in need? Whether it’s a big lump sum or a small daily donation, there are plenty of apps and organizations that can help you find charities to start donating to.
Giving money with your smartphone is certainly not a replacement for actually going out and volunteering your time and effort, but it’s a little something you can do to help those in need even if you can’t always tear yourself away from your daily life. Here are a few apps to help you get started.
Note: I cross referenced the apps mentioned below with both Charity Watch and Charity Navigator (which is also one of our app picks) so that the majority of the charities that are supported are rated above average.
