A couple of months ago, Bailey Schroeder contacted me about an Indiegogo campaign for her project - ResQwalk, an iOS mobile app that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues and shelters, and earn cool rewards, every time they go for a walk. The purpose of the campaign is to raise money to fund the app’s initial donation pools. I asked Bailey to please let me know when the app was available and good news...that time is now! Exciting times for a pet lover whos passion for helping homeless animals has led to this creative and impactful app.
When asked how the app came to be, she responded:
"As the mom of a rescue dog named Charlie, I know how passionate people are about helping homeless animals. The problem is that we often don’t have the time to foster or volunteer – or the money to donate as much as we’d like to. So, I thought to myself: what if I could create a way to give all these people who want to help, an opportunity to do so without costing them a dime or asking them to alter their daily routine? Could it be done? Yes! By rewarding people for walking. We all do it every day and now – with the help of generous sponsors – animal lovers and rescue advocates can earn money for their favorite organization just by walking."
How does ResQwalk work? The video explains it all. It's a simple app. And brilliant!
Thank you Bailey for creating such a cool AND worthwhile app, one that will help animals everywhere.
