Animal lovers supported stray animals through Help Steps, which brings together health and well-being in the smartphone application. With the donations of Help Steps users, who took 2 billion steps in 175 years, 6.5 tons of food and care support was provided to stray animals.
How are donations made?
Users who download the Help Steps app can walk, bike or run as usual all day with their mobile phones in their pockets. These steps accumulate in the Help Steps app, which is also 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 can collect these points if they wish, or donate them to needy individual beneficiaries or non-governmental organizations through this application.
To which NGOs are donations made for animals?
Steps taken through Help Steps can be donated to Haçiko, Golden Paws Stray Animal Protection and Rescue Association, Mute Friends, City of Angels Stray Animal Protection Association and Guide Dogs Association. With these donations, together with the NGOs in question, animals are provided with care and food support. Gözde Venice, the Founder and CEO of Help Steps, stated that 2 million users took 1.4 billion steps in 175 years and said: “Billions of steps have supported people in need, NGOs and little friends in need of care. In Help Steps, where everyone can donate by choosing the institution or person they want, the support for stray animals is increasing day by day. We invite everyone to be a part of this goodness just by walking.”
Not affected by price increase
In addition to donating steps, users can also support themselves by purchasing food for themselves and associations through the HS Market within the Help Steps application. Despite the price increases in the market, Help Steps continues its market activities with precision so that the support does not decrease in cold weather. Despite the market conditions, Help Steps continues to sell food at affordable prices.
