What is
Burn to give?

Burn to Give is a platform that converts calories burned exercising into life-saving nutrition for children in need. For every tracked calorie burned, a calorie is given to an undernourished child. We are using best-in-class technology to connect people, companies and malnourished children in order to create exponential impact and solve a global problem

Why hunger?

There are over 800 millon people suffering from chronic hunger in the world today. This means that 11% of the global population – or 1 out of 9 people – go to bed at night with an empty stomach. Even more – one in three – suffer from some form of malnutrition. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined

Our Focus:
Feeding children
everywhere

  • Almost 1 in 4 children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition; this is more than 150 million children worldwide
  • Receiving poor nutrition in early life – particularly in the first 1,000 days from conception until the age of two – has adverse functional consequences on the child. Some of those consequences include poor cognition and educational performance, low adult wages, lost productivity and, when accompanied by excessive weight gain later in childhood, an increased risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases in adult life
  • Our Ultimate Goal: to provide nutrition to help fuel the minds and bodies of children so that they can grow healthy, think clearly and learn efficiently in school

We want to use technology to connect two opposite global health concerns– such as Obesity and Hunger– in a way that helps solve them both

to connect two opposite global health concerns–
such as Obesity and Hunger–
in a way that helps solve them both

  • Adult obesity is rising everywhere at an accelerated pace, representing a major risk factor for non-communicable diseases including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and some forms of cancer. This problem is most severe in the Americas, Europe and Oceania where roughly one quarter of the adult population is currently considered obese
  • Multiple forms of malnutrition therefore coexist, with countries experiencing simultaneously high rates of child undernutrition and adult obesity

Impact

FAQ

What is Burn to Give?

Burn to Give is a platform that converts your calories burned exercising into life-saving nutrition for children in need. For every track calorie burned, a calorie is given to a child in need. We are using best-in-class technology to connect people, companies and malnourished children in order to create exponential impact and solve a global problem.

Do you have a Burn to Give App?

We have an App available on iOS and Android. From the App you are able to track and donate the calories you burn exercising while maintaining a record of all your activity, workouts and donations. In order to do so, the App has a fitness-calorie tracker of its own but is also integrated with existing fitness tracking devices such as Strava and Runstastic.

How many different Sports can I do?

Our goal is to include every-single sport and physical activity! We need all the calories we can get, so every sport matters. If there is any sport you practice that you can’t find in the App please reach out to us at info@burntogive.com and we’ll do our best to add it as soon as possible.

How do you measure and track Calories?

The App has a fitness tracker of its own with specific formulas to calculate the calories burned. Using variables such as height, weight, time, distance and combining those with each of the sports METS (Metabolic Equivalents) we can get an accurate measure of the calories burned for each person and in each sport.

The App is also integrated with Strava and Runtastic, so if you are using any of these we’ll get the calories directly from them. We want to be able to donate every single burned calorie in the world, so we are working on integrating the App to additional fitness trackers.

Is the App free to use?

Yes! It is completely free to use, we just need your calories.

Where does the money come from?

Visionary and forward-thinking brands are needed to convert all the calories burned into emergency nutrition. These companies are investing in our Burn to Give team with a double purpose; motivate millions of people lead a healthy and active lifestyle, and at the same time feed thousands of children around the world.

Who are your Sponsors?

Some of our sponsors are:
Walmart, Powerade, Subaru, K-One, Ripley, Merrel, Enjoy, Youtopia, Colbun, among many others

How can I become a Sponsor?

We are one happy team for the fact that you are interested in being one of our sponsors! Please send us an email to info@burntogive.com and we’ll get back to you immediately!

How can I become part of the Burn to Give community?

You just have to download the Burn to Give App, available on Android and IOS, and start donating your calories. It’s that easy to become part of our community!

Is there a maximum number of calories I can donate?

Definitively not! You can donate as many calories as you can burn exercising.

How many calories represent a meal?

500 calories = 1 meal

How does a Calorie Challenge work?

We establish a calorie goal, a period of time to reach that goal and carefully choose the children who will receive these calories. Then it is up to everyone’s exercise to reach this goal!

What happens if the calorie-goal is reached before the end date of a Calorie Challenge?

Great! This means a lot of people were motivated to exercise inspired by their desire to help others. However, for each challenge there is a maximum amount of calories we can purchase and deliver given it’s what has been committed by our sponsor companies for each challenge.

Is Burn to Give a non-profit organization?

No, Burn to Give is a Social Enterprise or an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. Social enterprises ultimate goal is the impact they create on solving a particular social issue, in this case hunger.

There are many similarities between a social enterprise with a non-profit but also differences. The main difference between them, is the revenue model.

Non-profits rely primarily on charitable contributions, public funding and foundation grants to support their programs, whereas social enterprises operate like a for-profit business by selling a product or service to the public and acquire funds through sales, to ultimately support a cause.

Though technically social enterprises and non-profits differ, the two are becoming more and more aligned in today's world. In the end, both types of organizations operate to create a better world.

What is your ultimate goal?

Motivate millions of people around the world to become active and live healthily, inspired by their desire to help those in need. Providing nutrition to help fuel the minds and bodies of children so that they can grow healthy, think clearly and learn efficiently in school.

Can I connect wearables or fitness tracking devices to the App?

Yes, through Strava and Runtastic.

What wearables and fitness tracking devices is Burn to Give compatible with?

All the ones that connect to Strava and Runtastic, including Garmin, Polar, Suunto, Tom Tom, Fitbit and a large list of smartwatches (Samsung, Apple, LG, etc.).

Do I need a wearable or fitness tracking device to track my calories?

No, it is not necessary. You can just use our App to track your calories, with no need of a wearable or fitness tracking device.

Do I have to use my phone to track my activity?

This will depend on the sport you choose. For some sports you can use your phone, wearables or any kind of fitness tracker. For the sports you can’t practice with a phone or wearable, the app has a manual calorie calculator of its own.

How can I see my activity history and shares?

You can see your previous activities on your profile, where you will have a summary of completed workouts and calories donated.

Why do you multiply x 2 the calories shared in Social Media?

The more people join the Burn to Give community, the more children we can feed. So it’s basically an incentive to spread the word and the impact we are doing!

Why Hunger?

There are over 800 million people suffering from chronic hunger in the world today. This means that 11% of the global population – or 1 out of 9 people – go to bed at night with an empty stomach. Even more – one in three – suffer from some form of malnutrition. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

What is Zero hunger?

Zero Hunger is Goal #2 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. SDG #2 aims to end all forms of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, making sure all people – especially children – have access to sufficient and nutritious food all year round.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it ís important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.

On 1 January 2016, the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic United Nations Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind

How are the calories (meals) delivered?

We partner with NGOs or non-profits fighting hunger around the world to support us in this important matter. They are the experts in feeding those in need, so we provide them with the resources to get this very important job done. Each non-profit works in different ways, so how meals get delivered depends basically on which cause we are currently working on.

For our first challenge for children in Haiti, our strategic impact parter is Leche para Haiti

For our second challenge for children in Chile, our strategic impact parter is Red de Alimentos
