May 21, 2009 in Health and Fitness (E)
[prMac.com] Kirkel, Germany - Beginning May 20, 2009, iHanWel will donate an equal amount of half of all proceeds from the sale of its iLoseWeight application to the Food for Life and Terre des Hommes aid organizations in order to assist them in their battle against child hunger around the globe. The campaign, which will run indefinitely, offers users of iLoseWeight the opportunity to contribute to a good cause while getting in shape and improving their own health.
iLoseWeight records all key data on weight, body mass index (BMI), body fat, and water and muscle proportion, making it the innovative application for health, fitness, and weight reduction. A detailed graphic module allows users to conveniently review and assess the initial progress they make through exercise and changes to their eating habits.
The application also includes an intuitive user interface, options for individual settings such as target weight, and much more! It goes without saying that all of this sensitive data is password-protected, with backup and restore functions available to users as well. Once the donation campaign is launched, the App will also offer a feature that enables users to call up a continually updated online overview of the amount of money that's been donated through the iLoseWeight for Charity action.
Designer Karin Müller describes the concept as the perfect symbiosis of innovative software and charity shopping: "It's a wonderful opportunity for us to help people - and what could be better than combining an App for successfully losing weight with a donation campaign targeted at fighting hunger around the world?"
Adds software developer Hanno Welsch: "Those who purchase our App can now do so with the good feeling that they're not just doing something for themselves, but also for others. A lot of people want to lose weight, and they also spend a lot of money trying to. We are now putting some of that money to good use by passing it on to those who really need it."

As part of the iLoseWeight for Charity action, half of all proceeds obtained through the sale of the App will now be divided equally between donations to the Food for Life and Terre des Hommes international aid organizations.
