If you're planning on going for a run, you might be able to do some good for other people -- while doing good for your body.
The new Samsung "Hope Relay" app is free to download on your smart phone. It tracks your mileage as you run, bike, rollerblade, or do any sort of physical activity that doesn't go over 18 mph. Then, for every mile you go, £1 will be donated to a deserving charity.
Now, we know you're wondering why we're using the pound (£) symbol. It's because the app is going live in the UK, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Poland, Siberia, Russia, Brazil, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Croatia, China, Hong Kong and Vietnam! For some reason, it's not being launched in the USA. However, it will run until the beginning of the Summer Olympics in London.
We may not use pounds -- or even know how much a pound is actually worth -- but, come on, Samsung! We'd love to donate our legs, too!

Did you know? ... You can donate a stitch to the flag that the U.S. Olympic Committee will carry in London -- and, raise funds for the team by doing so! Learn more, here.
