These alarm clock apps give your money to charity when you hit snooze

These alarm clock apps give your money to charity when you hit snooze

Whether your New Year’s resolution is to finally start waking up early, or to give more to charity, or both, these apps are for you.

Snooze and WakeOrDonate are alarm clock apps for your smartphone that will make it harder for you to stay in bed, and easier for you to donate: you will be charged for every time you hit snooze, and the money will go to a charity.

For Snooze, your extra few minutes of sleep will cost $0.25. For WakeOrDonate, the amount you donate is customizable. Both apps allow you to choose whichever charity you’d like to give to.

It’s a win-win situation. And you would have done something good for the world before you even wake up.

(Snooze was built by LetGive, a company that creates ways to donate to charity through mobile technology. WakeOrDonate is currently under development here, where you can give a Kickstarter-style pledge to help get it funded in exchange for revenue.)
