Giving Back Through the Charity Miles App
We’re always interested in finding new ways to make a positive impact as members of Team Aurora Ripple Enterprises. Right now, we’re using an innovative app to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and stay active at the same time.
The Charity Miles app lets users count their steps and collectively earn money for them every day. To date, the app has raised over $2.75 million for a wide range of nonprofits. As we put it to use for St. Jude’s, we’re also getting in better shape as a team. It’s definitely a win-win situation, and we’re excited to use Charity Miles for a variety of other Aurora Ripple Enterprises pursuits going forward.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is renowned for treating all kinds of catastrophic pediatric diseases regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Entertainer Danny Thomas founded the organization in 1962 with the idea that no child should die in the dawn of life. The majority of its funding comes from individual contributions, including from generous donors who ensure families of treated children never receive a bill.
Along with treatment, St. Jude’s also researches treatments, means of prevention, and potential cures for all kinds of diseases. Families not only aren’t billed for treatment, they also receive support for travel, housing, and food as their children are assisted.
We couldn’t be happier to support the St. Jude’s mission in such an innovative way. Like Aurora Ripple Enterprises on Facebook for updates on all our giveback efforts.
