Social media doesn't just build a community of conversations and interactions, it now helps charitable acts that make a difference in the world, and the CauseWorld App is one of them.

In following the rise of location-based applications, CauseWorld has created "charity checkin." Users earn "karma points" by checking into locations. These points are saved up until the user has enough to donate a lump sum to a charity of their choice, earning them a badge while they're at it. The CauseWorld App raises awareness and funds in a creative way that really speaks to digital users and social media enthusiasts. Stats for Charitable Location-Based Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
