Researching massive growth in giving.  567 total views,  5 views today Digital fundraising platform GivePenny now lets runners and cyclists connect their account to Strava so that they can upload their activity achievements to their fundraising pages.Strava is a globally popular mobile tracking app designed for runners and cyclists, which uses the built-in GPS function of tablets, smartwatches and smartphones to calculate distances and speeds travelled.GivePenny already connects with other popular GPS devices including those made by Garmin, Polar and Fitbit, and other services including Runkeeper, Fitbit, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.Strava users can now link their accounts with their GivePenny accounts to help attract sponsorship from friends and family for every mile or kilometre tracked through the app. GivePenny describes its approach of ‘Connected Giving’. In this way it is letting Strava users link some of the app’s motivational challenges to their fundraising. Charities and good causes can create their own fundraising challenges for multiple supporters e.g. 100 miles in 100 days or run a marathon in a month.They could also set up virtual mass participation campaigns, such as ‘run around the world’ or ‘cycle around the UK coastline’. Plenty of other Strava-connected apps allow this kind of virtual activity, such as the cycling app Zwift.Indeed, Strava itself isn’t limited to just running and cycling. It can track an extensive list of activities. These include:SwimWalkHikeAlpine SkiBackcountry SkiCanoeStrava’s platform is very social, with running groups and shared events like Park Runs communicating and sharing online, together with various leaderboards to show how athletes compare with each other, from long distance runs to personal bests over short segments of a route. This should prove useful in inspiring more people to take part in charity events and support them via GivePenny.Lee Clark, founder and CEO or GivePenny, said: “We’re so happy to have added Strava as a connection on GivePenny. It is an immensely popular platform for both athletes and people using it to motivate themselves to stay fit. We can’t wait to see how charities and good causes take full advantage of the ability to be front-of-mind while their supporters are using such a fun platform. Our team of FUN-Raisers will be there to help every step of the way.”He explains that GivePenny’s mission is to develop new ways to inspire giving “and we’re doing this by connecting the world’s favourite apps, wearable technology and websites to exciting fundraising experiences.”WATCH: StriveStrava means strive in Swedish.

Increased COVID-19 testing in Michigan shows fewer cases as Whitmer again vows vigilance

first_imgsonreir es gratis/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(LANSING, Mich.) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s cautious approach to reopening Michigan put her at odds with protestors clamoring for faster solutions, but data from recently ramped-up testing shows something on which perhaps all sides can agree: slow but steady progress.Positive COVID-19 cases are declining statewide, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, with new per-day cases for the first 20 days in May falling by almost 60%, to 378 from 932, compared with the same period in April. Total cases over those 20-day spans fell to 7,569 from 18,641.Hospitalizations through May 20 also declined, to 1,054 from 2,100 in April, according to a health department spokeswoman.“The data shows that Michigan is ready to phase in these sectors of our economy, but we must stay vigilant and ensure we’re doing everything we can to protect ourselves and our families from the spread of COVID-19,” Whitmer said in a statement.Whitmer also announced on Thursday that gatherings that didn’t exceed 10 people, so long as they respected social distancing, would be allowed immediately statewide. Michigan’s retail and auto shops can reopen by appointment starting May 26, and nonessential medical, dental and veterinary services are allowed to reopen May 29.Earlier this month, she allowed manufacturing businesses, including automobile factories, to restart with certain restrictions after many residents, state leaders and even President Donald Trump criticized her stay-at-home order as too strict.Michigan had 53,009 positive cases and 5,060 related deaths as of May 20, according to state health department data. Roughly 68% of cases have been recorded in the southeast section of the state, which includes Wayne County, which has seen the fifth-most deaths, 2,284, and 12th-most cases, 19,432, in the U.S., according to data from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Through the first 18 days of May, Michigan was administering an average of 14,396 daily tests, compared with 4,628 during the first 18 days of April, health department data shows. Through May 18, almost 453,000 tests had been administered with a positive rate of 15%, compared with 208,157 total state-administered tests at a rate of 23.4% at the end of April.“We have a short-term goal of reaching 15,000 tests per day, and a goal of reaching 30,000 tests per day by June,” Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Health Department, said in a statement to ABC News. “Over the past week, we have averaged around 17,000 tests per day.”Whitmer, a Democrat who’s spoken to Joe Biden’s campaign about potentially becoming his running mate, has fended of criticism from groups of protestors, hundreds of whom — many armed — stormed the Capitol in Lansing during an April 30 rally.Some barbers and hairstylists on Wednesday staged a rally where they cut people’s hair despite current orders from the governor, who’s said repeatedly any plan to reopen her state’s economy would have to be balanced with the best-available health data.“While I respect people’s right to dissent,” she said last week on “The View,” “they need to do it in a way that is responsible and does not put others at risk.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Rent relief hinges on dwindling goodwill

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Sen. Brian Kavanagh and RSA President Joe Strasburg (Getty, Strasburg via Jeffersons Siegel)Sometime this month, New York landlords and tenants will gain access to $2.3 billion in federal aid allocated by the state.The catch: They’ll have to work together to get it.In a year that’s pushed the cat-dog dichotomy of the landlord-tenant relationship to extremes, cooperation could be elusive.The law allows either party to start an application for relief. But for money to be doled out, tenants must request funds that will go directly to the landlord and the landlord must, in turn, accept them. Both have reasons not to do their part.Romeo Budhoo, a Schenectady landlord just featured in a stunning Washington Post story on the acrimony resulting from a year of unpaid rent, doubts his tenants, protected by an eviction moratorium at least through August, will bother to apply.ADVERTISEMENT“They’re telling themselves, ‘Why should we go and do all these things and hustle to apply when nobody can put us out of our apartment?’” Budhoo said in a phone interview.Read moreLandlords turn down federal reliefLandlords hail aid bill as end of “cancel rent”Rent relief failing to reach New Yorkers Full Name* Tags Budhoo’s pessimism comes from experience: Alfonzo Hill, the tenant in the Washington Post feature, didn’t participate in last summer’s relief program. Hill didn’t reply to a request for comment.Sen. Brian Kavanagh, who chairs the Senate Housing Committee, said this program has much more going for it — up to 12 months of back rent and three months of future rent. Last year’s paid the difference between 30 percent of a tenant’s income and the rent due. He expects the new offer will draw both parties.“Tenants and landlords don’t have to hold hands and have warm feelings for each other to participate,” said Kavanagh.But the tenant-landlord stand-off goes both ways. Even if renters sign up for relief, landlords who accept it can’t evict a paying tenant for a year — and could likewise be stuck with a nonpaying tenant because of an extended moratorium or housing court delays.Still, landlord lobbyist Joe Strasburg believes owners are desperate enough to take that chance.“Our guys are small property owners who haven’t been paid rent since March,” said Strasburg, the president of the Rent Stabilization Association. “They’ll take the money knowing full well that if the tenant decides to game the system for the next year, they’re stuck.”Tenant lawyers warn that the more likely outcome is landlords, embittered by tenants living rent-free, won’t accept out of spite.“There are some landlords,” said the Legal Aid Society’s Ellen Davidson, “that are so angry at their tenants who have struggled during this time that they want to see them homeless. And so they won’t accept the money for them, because it’s not about the money for them.”Budhoo says he’s not in that camp. With $13,000 in unpaid property taxes and the threat of foreclosure on his rentals and his own home creeping closer, he said he is more than willing to cooperate with his tenants to get relief.“At least,” he said, “I’ll try.”Contact Suzannah Cavanaugh Share via Shortlink Message* Email Address* Commercial Real EstateEvictionsPoliticsrent stabilization associationlast_img read more
