Two things often come to mind around the holidays: giving gifts and kicking it into gear with resolutions for the new year. Want an easy way to combine both? The free Charity Miles app for iOS and Android lets you earn money and raise awareness for charities by walking, running or biking. Get fit and give back at the same time!

Just choose a charity and get moving. The app uses GPS to measure your distance. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile, all up to an initial $1,000,000 corporate sponsorship pool.

Follow the initiative with the hashtag #EveryMileMatters.

Participating charities include the Wounded Warrior Project, Feeding America, Habitat for Humanity, Stand Up to Cancer, Autism Speaks and the ASPCA, among many others.

Download the free app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
