One Dollar Day
Cost: Free | Developer:1$Day Limited | Platform: iOS | Version 1.0.2 | 14.5 MB| 3.1.3+
This app is an appeal to all Australians to give just $1 to help reduce inequities in children’s health and education around the world.
The One Dollar Day game is free to download and play and features an e-commerce feature that allows you to donate.
You just have to play and get your $1 from Australia to Laos, while dodging iconic obstacles along the way, including kangaroos, barbeques, elephants and temples.
There are three levels with progressive degrees of difficulty, speed and distinctive graphics relevant to the stage of the journey your dollar is on. With the added bonus of Facebook integration, you can share your app experience with friends and invite them to play.
The money raised this year will be allocated to Save The Children, which is working to build health clinics in Laos, increasing a child’s likelihood of surviving their first year by 75 per cent above the national average.
Pros: Revolutionises fundraising with an app.
Cons: None! It's all for charity.
Verdict: What’s bad about spending a few minutes to play a game and do your part for the community.
