1. UNICEF’s Tap Project: How long can you go without touching your phone? For every ten minutes you go (with this website open), a sponsor donates enough money for a child to have clean water for a day.
2. Charity Miles: With this app, you choose your favorite charity, and a sponsor donates for every mile you walk/run/bike. I just leave it on all day at school and it registers all that I walk between classes!
3. Donate a Photo: You’re going to take the selfies anyway, so why not contribute to a good cause? For every picture you donate, Johnson and Johnson donates $1 to a charity of your choice.
Have a great day, hope everyone’s in the best of health and enjoying themselves

Raise money for children in developing countries by doing nothing. Literally nothing.
For UNICEF’s Tap Project this year, just open this link on your phone. For every minute you don’t touch your phone, enough water for one child for one day will be donated.

I’d like to advise, however, try and check in with the person you’re aiming to help.
Some of the options available (especially where it’s not an official system hotline, but it’s a city information line) may NOT be safe options for people.
It may seem like splitting hairs, but sometimes the reasons people aren’t already in shelters of some sort is because it’s really not a viable option.
If the person is okay with it, go for it. Otherwise, try and double check, or see if there’s anything else you can offer to help them out.
Hypothermia is no joke, but neither is the high risk (as in NYC) that they may be otherwise harmed by being forcibly picked up, or picked up without their prior notification/warning/consent.
Why doesn’t Atlanta have one. .. where do our homeless go???????
Martha Brown United Methodist Church will open up its doors for the next three nights as a Temporary Freeze Shelter for those seeking refuge from the cold temperatures which are expected to plunge into the 20s this week.
The church, located at 468 Moreland Ave. SE. will offer shelter from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Those staying the night will need to arrive by 9 p.m. The church also will provide dinner and breakfast to those who stay.
Must Ministries (55 Elizabeth Church Road, Marietta) automatically opens up its shelter, “The Elizabeth Inn,” when temps drop below 32 degrees. One shelter houses woman and children, the annex houses men. They must report by 9:15 p.m. with picture ID.
I can’t find any numbers but I’m sure any church will be willing to help.
