Orange today (22 June) announced the launch of its mobile volunteering app ‘Do Some Good’ on Nokia handsets.
The ‘Do Some Good’ mobile app, which launched in March this year, enables users to get involved in bite-size volunteering at their convenience using their smartphones. Consumers can also earn music rewards, such as tickets to a gig of their choice, after completing 60 actions of volunteering using the app.
Everything Everywhere head of responsibility Helen Davies said: ‘The 'Do Some Good' app gives people the opportunity to make a positive impact in less than five minutes through their mobiles, and we’re excited to welcome Nokia users to the experience.’
The operator also launched a new website to accompany the ‘Do Some Good’ app, which features other charity apps as well as links to real life volunteering opportunities.
Nokia UK head of marketing John Nichols said: ‘We’re delighted to be involved with Do Some Good and Photofoundation. The Nokia N8’s 12-megapixel camera is perfect for capturing and sharing in professional quality. We’re looking forward to seeing how Nokia owners use their smartphones for good.’
Meanwhile, Orange unveiled a new feature on the app this week, a short survey for the Institute for Volunteering Research designed to find out people’s thoughts on mobile volunteering.
Nokia users can now download the app for free from Nokia’s Ovi app store.
