Samsung’s new app feature inspires Galaxy users to advance Global Goals – Samsung Global Newsroom
Encourage your friends and family to work together to advance the Global Goals and track your progress with the new Donation Leaderboard feature in the Samsung Global Goals app
Small actions can have a big impact. As citizens of the planet, we all have a responsibility to care for people and the Earth, our home.
That’s why, in 2019, Samsung Electronics partnered with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to launch the Samsung Global Goals (SGG) app. The SGG app allows the Galaxy community to donate directly to Global Goals, use lock screens to increase ad revenue, and generate funds by watching in-app ads. The SGG app helps users learn more about the Global Goals and help fund the goals that matter most to them.
Through a new app feature, the Donation Leaderboard, Samsung is opening new opportunities for the Galaxy community to engage with the Global Goals. By creating a donation ranking system, donation ranking encourages users to donate to goals, track donation progress; and encourage your friends, family and other Galaxy users to do the same.
Accessible through the Donate section of the Samsung Global Goals app,1 Donation ranking shows users how much they have donated to specific global goals, as well as how their donation ranks against users in their country or users around the world.2 By providing greater visibility into donation history, Samsung hopes this will motivate Galaxy users to improve their ranking in the donation leaderboard, all in the interest of progressing towards global goals.
The Samsung Global Goals app has been a powerful way for the Galaxy community to work together in support of the Global Goals. Just a few months ago, another major donation milestone was reached, with $10 million raised so far through the app and donated to help UNDP promote resilience and accelerate progress. towards the goals. Samsung hopes the Donation Leaderboard will help build on this momentum by giving the Galaxy community a fun and interactive new way to contribute to the goals that matter most to them. To date, Galaxy users have directed the most donations to Goal 2: Zero Hunger, followed by Goal 1: No Poverty and Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation.
The Global Goals, established in 2015, are a set of 17 goals that world leaders have agreed to achieve by 2030. These goals have the power to stop climate change, tackle inequality, end poverty, among other pressing global challenges. To achieve the global goals, we must accelerate our individual and collective efforts.
Samsung is committed to using the power of technology to empower the Galaxy community to take action towards the Global Goals. Together, we have the power to create meaningful change. Visit the Samsung Global Goals app to advance the goals that matter most to you.
