Apple Launches Apple Pay Donation Program And Apple Watch Activity Challenge To Support America's National Parks
Through the launch of an Apple Pay donation program and an Apple Watch Activity Challenge, Apple is giving customers the opportunity to enjoy and support America's national parks over the next few days. The Cupertino-based company made the announcement in a recent press release.
From August 24th through August 31st, Apple will donate $1 to the National Park Foundation for every purchase that is made with Apple Pay at any Apple Store, through the Apple Store app or on apple.com. Proceeds will help support NPF with habitat restoration, historic preservation and the Open OutDoors for Kids program.
On September 1st, Apple will hold an Apple Watch Activity Challenge to pay homage to Redwood National Park's 50th-anniversary celebration this year. Apple Watch users who complete a walk, run or wheelchair workout of 50 minutes or more will receive Apple app award and stickers inspired by national parks.
In addition, the App Store will highlight apps that are best for navigating and exploring national parks throughout the country.
“America’s national parks are treasures everyone should experience, and we’re proud to support them again this month by donating a dollar for every purchase made with Apple Pay at one of our stores,” Apple CEO Tim Cook noted in the press release. “These awe-inspiring places are our national inheritance, and Apple is doing our part to pass them on to future generations — just as extraordinary, beautiful and wild as we found them.”
