App gives to charity every time you hit the snooze button

The snooze button found on most alarm clocks is one of the best and worst inventions this world has ever seen. On one hand, it lets us spend a few more moments in our beds. But on the other hand, there's that temptation to press the button over and over again.

Solution? Punish snoozers through their wallets every time they have the urge to press that button.

An app appropriately named Snooze will help you do exactly that.

As long as the app's alarm is used and set — instead of the one that comes on every iPhone — the sleep-deprived will find their wallets 25 cents lighter every time they choose to sleep a bit longer. Each of those quarters winds up going to a non-profit organization in the LetGive charity network, so one person's laziness will help someone else in need.

Download the Snooze app for free via the Apple App Store. Note: This requires setting up a LetGive account in order to properly use it.
