iPhone app for Good the Give Work app by Samasource

Samasource and Crowdflower has given you another way to help people come out of poverty.  I downloaded the app a while back and am amazed at the forward thinking of people like Leila.  If you have a minute do simple tasks to give.  How does it work?

Samasource and Crowdflower present Give Work, their new iPhone application. Give Work lets you support refugees in Dadaab, Kenya—the world’s largest refugee site—in minutes by completing short, on-screen tasks. The refugees are training to complete these same tasks and, by volunteering to tag a video or trace a road, you will generate money to support their training as well as valuable data to help focus future training programs.  (http://www.samasource.org/iphone/)
