Principal Foundation collaborated with Charity Miles, a global non-profit organisation from April 1- September 30, 2022 where Principal employees around the globe participated in a philanthropic initiative that turned our employees movement into a donation for disaster relief charities.
Our employees downloaded the Charity Miles app to their personal mobile phone devices that tracked their movement and logged a $1-per-mile donation for select charities. Principal Foundation made the $1-per-mile-donation. The app has the capability to track mileage for employees using a wheelchair, jogging, walking and even biking.
Donations benefited a different organisation each month during the six-month initiative. All six organisations focused on disaster relief resulting from natural disasters or conflicts. Among the organisations which had benefited from the collective efforts include those in Afghanistan, Syria and Myanmar.
