Target: Founder of the ResQWalk, Bailey Schroeder
Goal: Praise the founder of a new app that donates 20 cents to animal rescue organizations for each mile walked
The ResQWalk application is coined the “walking app with a social conscience” by Forbes because it constructs a simple method for people to donate money to animal welfare organizations of their choice. Bailey Schroeder launched the app after she adopted her first dog and became more familiar with the animal adoption process. From then on, she invented multiple apps to raise awareness about animal rescue. After experimenting with different apps, she came up with ResQWalk, an app that would appeal to people who love fitness and animals but don’t have enough finances to help their favorite animal shelters.
According to Forbes, the app tracks the distance walked and the app donates 20 cents for each mile walked. The money comes from a very successfully funded campaign that Schroeder started. As of 2014, thousands of people are using the app on their phones and ResQWalk has distributed about $20,000 to over 900 animal rescue centers. The app has been so successful and has been averaging about $2,500 a week in donations. Schroeder plans on enlisting the help of sponsors to grow the financial pool for future app users. The donations have been used by the rescue facilities to buy food, litter, and other necessities for the animals.
Please sign this petition to thank creator Bailey Schroeder for her innovative app to help raise awareness and financial help for animal rescue centers.
Dear Bailey Schroeder,
Animal rescue centers need all of the help that they can get. Thousands of animals are abandoned every day and there aren’t many options for them unless they are rescued by one of these groups. You have created an app that pairs health-conscious individuals and animal lovers together. ResQWalk will be able to help groups that facilitate adoptions and most importantly, educate people about the importance of pet adoptions. The best part is that the app is easy to use and can seamlessly be added to a busy person’s daily routine.
Thank you for creating the ResQWalk, which will greatly contribute to the health and wellness of people and the animals that the money is going toward. ResQWalk is an invention that will surely expand to help animals all around the world.
