Apple Pay National Parks Foundation promotion

The Apple Pay promotion coincides with Apple's next Apple Watch challenge, which also lands on August 25th. The challange celebrates both the Grand Canyon National Park's 100th anniversary and National Park Service's birthday.

This is at least the third year Apple has run a donation promotion along with an Apple Watch challenge for the National Park Foundation, although this year Apple has increased their donation ten-fold.

If you have something to purchase at Apple in the next week, don't forget to use Apple Pay to support parks, then cap it off by completing the next Apple Watch challenge.
