Help Steps Project Manager Gözde Venice said that even one step is very important and said, “When all steps are combined, strength arises from unity and saves lives. Moreover, while doing this, we are laying the foundations of a more walking and healthy society together. Our goal in 1 is to reach 2021 million users ”.
How is it working?
Users who download the Help Steps app are walking as usual with their cell phones in their pockets. These steps are also accumulated in Help Steps, a pedometer. Then, before 24:00 in the evening, users enter the application, press the 'Convert my steps to HS' button and watch a short advertisement. Users whose steps turn into HS points either accumulate these points or donate these points to individual beneficiaries or non-governmental organizations in need through this application.
Who can donate to?
In Help Steps, users choose the organization or person to donate to. By choosing any of the 21 institutions such as Red Crescent, KAYD, AHBAP, HAÇİKO, TOG, TEGV, Needs Map, SEED, TOFD, UCİM, the steps are provided to the people in need. In addition, fans can support Beşiktaş JK and Fenerbahçe SK by donating their steps.
