What better time than Martin Luther King Jr. Day to get involved in your local community and take action on the issues that matter to you. Here are four ways to make the most of it.

The new story shares four tips and corresponding apps on ways to:

  • Share your time
  • Get yourself out there
  • Sightsee for good
  • Discover a cause

The first app, Golden Volunteer Opportunities helps users find fun, local ways to give back to schools, non-profits, and charities.

Next up, the story shares that even though Eventbrite is best known for selling concert and other tickets, the service also has dedicated section called “Charities & Causes” that is a great resource.

Another likely lesser known resource to give back is through Airbnb Experiences. The travel service’s platform gives 100% of proceeds to charities and is a fun way to make an impact whether you’re at home or traveling.

Lastly, Apple shares GoFundMe as a great way to search for causes that matter to you. You can check out the full story on the App Store here. Other new editorial content today on the iOS App Store includes Movies for MLK Day and Make a Protest Poster.
