It’s free. It’s fun. It’s simple. And it allows people to contribute to a great cause while doing something they’re already doing – walking.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2014

ResQwalk, a new mobile app that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues and earn rewards just by walking, has launched an Indiegogo campaign with the goal of raising $20,000.

Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool and, in order for a rescue to receive donations from the pool, its supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk. At the end of the week donations are paid out to the rescues proportionally to the total distance walked. The ResQwalk app will be available in the app store at the end of June. Plans for an Android app are in the works.

“Our vision is to create a fun and easy way for people to support the animal rescues and shelters they care about,” said Bailey Schroeder, Founder and CEO of ResQwalk. “Our goal with the Indiegogo campaign is to raise $20,000 to fund the first 8 weeks of donation pools. We will use the money to run the app for 2 months, with fully funded donation pools, and prove that people want to walk in support of homeless animals. During this time we will look for corporate sponsors to fund the future donation pools. ”

After the 2-month boost provided by the proceeds from the Indiegogo campaign, the weekly donation pools will be funded by a combination of corporate sponsor money, revenue generated in the Shop section of the app, and revenue generated when users redeem the rewards at the end of the walk.

“Our vision is to create a platform that makes giving easy. Often times people don’t have the time to foster a dog, or the space to adopt a cat, but ResQwalk gives everyone the opportunity to help animals in need,” said Bailey Schroeder. “It’s free. It’s fun. It’s simple. And it allows people to contribute to a great cause while doing something they’re already doing – walking.”

ResQwalk is based in New York City. The company’s aim is to have a successful Indiegogo campaign, launch the iOS app at the end of June, followed by an Android app at the end of summer, and use the ResQwalk platform to raise both money and awareness for animal rescues.
