As part of our series on fundraising online, MyWhereAbouts.co.uk offers a great charity app based on GPS tracking. While the site is based in Great Britain, their charity app concept is simply brilliant. Once started, the MyWhereAbouts GPS tracking app will automatically send updates to Facebook & Twitter detailing your performance and location information during your fundraising event.
The app is easy to set up and will send periodic updates of your choice of either time or distance. To assist your fundraising efforts during your charity run or bike ride, the app also includes a link to your personal charity donation page with every tweet sent or Facebook post made.
That makes it easy for your friends, family, followers & sponsors to see your efforts online on your favorite social media sites. They can keep an eye on your progress “live” during your big event and offer encouragement and support.
Linked with the app’s map functionality, MyWhereAbouts allows spectators to easily locate you during or after the event. They can simply use the posted location URL in Facebook or Twitter and then the “Get Directions'” function in maps to know where you are and how to get to you quickly and easily in order to congratulate you!
The MyWhereAbouts charity app is available for both iPhone and Android mobile phones. Find out more at MyWhereAbouts.co.uk where you can download the app and get some helpful tips on how best to use it.
