I got the Charity Miles app to work; I think the first two times I tried it I didn't walk geographically far enough from my start point for the GPS to track it or something (I was walking laps around my apartment complex). This time, I tried walking in a fairly straight line from my apartment through the surrounding neighborhood and it worked!
I chose Feeding America as my charity, and I racked up enough miles to provide 3 meals to hungry people! It feels so good to be able to give tzedakah while exercising! I definitely recommend trying it. I don't usually walk outdoors, but this app gave me the motivational push I needed to try something new. Thank you, Charity Miles, and a big thanks to my sponsor, American Express!
