Cabot Creamery, best known as the makers of “The World’s Best Cheddar” has developed a mobile app for volunteers. Reward Volunteers, created in conjunction with Chalo Inc., is the world’s first app designed to allow volunteers to log their hours, post them to Facebook, and garner rewards for their time, for themselves and their causes.
Reward Volunteers users have the opportunity to win prizes by increasing their logged hours, sharing posts/photos and securing Facebook likes. Rewards include a Burton Snowboard, Cabot Cheese gift baskets, Green Mountain Coffee gift baskets, and lift tickets from Ski Vermont. Five individuals and five non-profit organizations will also be eligible to win $3,000 each.
The free app is available on iTunes, as of Valentine’s Day. It works for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and as a web-based program at RewardVolunteers.coop.
