Weightless Project uses personal tracker data to abate hunger and obesity

Dec 30, 2013

The Weightless Project gives you another reason to use your Jawbone or Fitbit that you got for Christmas this year (or to dig out the one you used for a week and forgot about). For every 1,000 calories lost, a dollar is donated to food relief programs.

Hopeful.
