We love partnering with forward-thinking brands of all sizes, all around the globe.
These mission-driven companies are committed to helping people live healthily
and pursue a hunger-free world.
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
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
to connect two opposite global health concerns–
such as Obesity and Hunger–
in a way that helps solve them both
57,450 people burned 75 Million calories exercising which were converted into 150,000 meals and were enough to feed and save 1,000 lives of children suffering from severe acute malnutrition in Haiti
Our founder, Eduardo della Maggiora, shares his personal history and shows how, through the pursuit of his passion and by connecting points throughout his life, Burn to Give was born.

Start your Burn to Give challenge tailored around the needs of your Company
Burn to Give is a platform that converts calories burned by doing any type of physical activity, into emergency food for a child who needs it. For every calorie burned by exercising, a calorie is given to a child suffering from malnutrition. We use cutting-edge technology to connect people, companies and foundations, to generate an exponential impact and solve global problems.
Of course! Our app is free and available for iOS and Android. From the app, you can monitor and donate your calories burned, your daily steps and even your healthy activities, while keeping a record of all your history, training and donations. To do this, the app has its own calorie counter, but it is also can synchronize with other existing fitness applications such as Strava, Garmin, Fitbit, Apple Health and Google Fit.
Our goal is to include all existing sports and physical activities! We need all the calories we can get, so all sports matter. If there is any sport that you practice and that you cannot find in the app, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to add it as soon as possible.
The App has its own monitoring system with specific formulas to calculate the calories burned. Combining variables such as height, weight, time, distance with the METS (metabolic equivalent) of each sport, we can obtain an accurate measure of the calories burned by each person while performing each sport.
The app also synchronizes with Strava and Garmin, so if you use any of these applications, we’ll be able to get your calories directly from them. We want to be able to donate all the calories burned in the world, so we are working to synchronize our app with a greater number of fitness applications.
Yes, it is completely free! We just need your help spreading the word.
Visionary brands with great social awareness are necessary to turn donations into help. These companies allocate part of their Marketing or Corporate Wellness budgets towards Burn to Give with a double purpose; firstly, to motivate millions of people to lead a healthy and active life and secondly, to help solve some of the problems in today's world.
Some of our sponsors are: Merrell, K-One, Subaru, Banmédica, Samsung, MedPro y Bless, among others.
We are very pleased about your interest in being one of our sponsors! Please send us an email to email@example.com and we will respond immediately!
Just download the Burn to Give app, available on iOS and Android and start donating and earning points. Being part of our community is that simple!
For Verifiable Activities, we have a limit of 5,000 calories per workout and a maximum of 3 workouts per day.
That's right! Every 100,000 steps you take you will be donating a meal or a tree (depending on your cause), with a limit of 100,000 steps a day.
500 calories = 1 meal
500 calories = 1 tree
That's right, our limit is determined by our income (we cannot donate more than we receive). Also, the higher our income, the more donations we can make. However, we have a minimum of 20,000 donations per month, so we will always have aid to deliver. A donation is equivalent to 1 meal of 500 calories or 1 native tree planted.
If you are part of a corporate challenge, there is no limit on the amount of calories you can donate!
Yes! Your first mission when registering in our app will be to select which cause you want to donate your burned calories or your healthy activities. Among the active causes you will have to choose from, there will be some with the objective of combating child malnutrition and others that aim to reforest native forests. Our goal is to be able to include more causes every day, so that everyone can choose the cause that touches their heart.
No, you can change your cause as many times as you want and even switch back to a cause you’ve previously donated to.
If you are enrolled in a challenge that is associated with a specific cause, you have to check if you are donating to that cause as well. Otherwise, you will not add up calories to achieve the challenge goal.
They are small challenges with a specific goal within limited time frame. Each challenge will be different and there will be many available at the same time so you can choose which one you want to participate in. You can participate in as many as you want and just follow the instructions to achieve the goal. There will be some challenges with individual goals, where achieving the goal depends only on you, and others with group goals where we need all participants motivated to achieve the goal.
No, Burn to Give is a social enterprise, that is, a type of organization that applies market strategies to achieve and maximize a particular social objective, instead of maximizing profits for its shareholders. The main objective of social enterprises is to generate an impact when solving a specific social problem.
There are many similarities between a social enterprise and a non-profit organization, as well as many differences. The main difference between them is the income model. Nonprofit organizations rely primarily on donations and government assistance to finance their programs, while social enterprises operate similarly to a for-profit company by selling a product or service to the public and acquiring funds through sales to finance and support a cause.
Despite being technically distinct, social enterprises and nonprofit organizations becoming more and more aligned in today's world. At the end of the day, these two types of companies operate to create a better world.
Motivate millions of people around the world to be active and live a healthy lifestyle while working together to solve different global problems.

Points are a score unit that our app users earn by performing healthy activities, such as taking steps and exercising. These can be exchanged for tickets to participate in prize draws or redeem directly for products or discounts.

You can earn points by doing any type of physical activity. For that purpose, we recommend integrating Strava or your Garmin. You can also upload activities manually or use the Burn to Give app for activities such as running, cycling and other sports where your cell phone can accompany you.
You can earn a maximum of 75 daily points between walking and performing other physical activities.
You can also earn points for each external app you connect to, for participating in challenges, and for performing other actions within the app. Make sure to check your email and the app regularly to stay updated on our latest features!

A Verifiable Activity is one that comes from an external App, where we can certify that a physical activity was performed. These are also those activities that you practice through the Burn to Give app such as running, cycling and other sports where your cell phone can accompany you.
An Unverifiable Activity is one that you enter manually (in the Burn to Give app or in an external app) where there is no certainty that you have actually done that physical activity.
Each week we have giveaways that our users can join by buying tickets with the points they earned by doing any type of physical activity. You can also accumulate points with your daily steps, healthy habits and other activities.
In these raffles, we will be delivering products and services that promote our community’s active and healthy lifestyle.
No, sometimes our brands feel very generous and offer discounts or exchanges without draws. You can also directly take these with your accumulated points, so you have to check in regularly for these.
Currently, there are more than 800 million people around the world who suffer from malnutrition. This means that 11% of the world's population - or 1 in 9 people - goes to sleep every night on an empty stomach. What's more - 1 in 3 - suffers from some form of malnutrition. Hunger and malnutrition are the first most common risk factor for disease worldwide - greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
Zero Hunger is Goal # 2 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. SDG # 2 seeks to end all forms of famine and malnutrition by 2030, ensuring that all people - especially children - have access to sufficient and nutritious food throughout the year.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the master plan to achieve a sustainable future for all. They interrelate with each other and incorporate the global challenges we face every day, such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. In order to avoid leaving anyone behind, it is important that we achieve each of these goals by 2030.
On January 1, 2016, the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development - adopted in September 2015 by more than 150 Heads of State and Government at the historic Sustainable Development Summit - were launched. For the next 15 years, with these universally applicable goals, countries will make efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight against inequality and attack climate change, making sure that no one is left behind.

For this important task we partner with NGOs or non-profit organizations that fight against different global problems, such as hunger, malnutrition and climate change. We take care of obtaining and delivering the necessary resources to each organization, but each one works in different ways, so the way in which the aid is delivered basically depends on the specific cause being supported.
To end child malnutrition in Haiti, our strategic partner is Milk for Haiti (www.lecheparahaiti.cl)
To help solve child malnutrition in Chile, our strategic partner is Red de Alimentos (web.redalimentos.cl)
To feed the children of Venezuela, our strategic partner is Alimenta la Solidaridad (http://alimentalasolidaridad.com/)
To help reforest Chile's native forests, our strategic partner is the Santiago Climate Exchange (https://www.scx.cl/)
