Snooze for iPhone Donates to Charity Everytime You Hit Snooze

Have you ever been late to work, or even almost-late to work because you hit the snooze button a few too many times? Does 6AM come WAY too early for you every day? If you’ve been looking for a way to motivate yourself to get out of bed on time, Snooze for iPhone might be just the trick.

Snooze for iPhone donates to charity everytime your tired body hits the snooze button. Now, everytime you feel lazy, you’re also doing something good. Ah, what a sticky situation! Do you get up on time, or do you donate to charity?

The alarm app donates a quarter to a non-profit organization (under the LetGive umbrella) everytime you hit snooze –  but, interestingly, it’s not a forced donation; twice a month, the app asks you if you would like to donate your snooze hits to the non-profit of your choice.

Would this be a good motivation for you to get out of bed on time? I have to wonder if it wouldn’t be more effective if, say, the donation was $1 instead of just 25 cents. 25 cents takes a while to add up, and therefore you might feel inclined to sleep an extra thirty minutes if you only lose 75 cents.
