Why I Love This Charity App

To start off, I LOVE SAMSUNG!

I find that these days it is easy to just get caught up in the day-to-day grind. Everybody just wants to live their life, and pursue their own happiness. Which makes sense, as humans we want to strive to better ourselves and look for the next step in our stories. However, sometimes we need to look outside of ourselves as well. This Samsung charity app can help you with that.

Samsung Global Goals is a way for you to help out, without taking time out of your day, and only using your phone’s lock screen! Now I know that initially people think “oh but I have this picture of my family on there” or “but I found this HILARIOUS meme that I use for my lock-screen”. Well, maybe don’t be so stubborn alright? Just do what I tell you to do.

It is a non-intrusive app as well, and will give you a way to help, without you going to events or spending a lot of time organizing and whatnot. So even if you just use it to supplement your contributions to humanity, it is a good step to take.

It is a slick and simple app as well!

What Goals Can I Contribute To?

Well this section just BEGS to be a list, and if you know me, then you know I love making lists. 80% of my Google Docs are lists that I am constantly tweaking.

  1. No Poverty
  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-Being
  4. Quality Education
  5. Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy
  8. Decent Work and Economic Growth
  9. Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  10. Reduced Inequalities
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12. Responsible Consumption and Production
  13. Climate Action
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life On Land
  16. Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  17. Partnerships for the Goals

That’s a lot of goals. Now, most of these are fairly self-explanatory, except for that last one, Partnerships for the Goals. This is one that focuses on international investments and support to ensure technological development, market access, and fair trade in developing countries.

These goals are all topics that you can delve into pretty deeply. At the bottom of this post I talk about my support for #Goal7 and why I find it to be important.


How Does the Samsung Charity App Work?

As is aforementioned, you can generate earnings by allowing ads to be shown on the lock-screen of your phone OR you can actually go into the app and watch advertisements that Samsung puts up for you. This creates a non-intrusive way for you to lend a helping hand to a goal of your choice without dipping into your own pockets, and we have all been in a spot where we just don’t have the money to do that. I personally have rubbed nickels together hoping they would turn into dollars, and it didn’t work, so this app makes it possible for me to help when my alchemy doesn’t work out.

Where Did This Come From?

In 2015 world leaders decided on 17 goals that they believed would build a better world by 2030. This has become a movement that a multitude of figures and companies have gotten behind in order to help the planet as a whole. Now if I am being honest, they just kind of picked everything that is wrong. So even if it is kind of vague, I think the Goal structure is intuitive and allows people to focus up on certain things. One thing that I find odd, is that they selected hot topics as goals too. Regardless of what your political beliefs or principles are, I think that the Global Goals are something we can all get behind, and the Samsung charity app makes it that much easier.

Global Goals has been a massive movement, and even Bill & Melinda Gates are part of it. They are even the 2019 Goalkeepers. While I do not agree with everything that they spout off, there is no denying that they are good people, and show a massive amount of support for the cause.

My Goal

#Goal7
Affordable and Clean Energy

I think it goes without saying, but I support #Goal7. This is the Affordable and Clean Energy goal. Much of my focus is on sustainable technology for our future. The way we rely on fossil fuels is unsustainable, and is part of the reason humanity needs to shift focus to energy production through renewable energy. In 2015 around 17.5% of the final energy consumption was attributed to renewable energy according to Samsung, and I would like to see that number go up.

Everyone knows my fascination with the future of humanity, be it sustainable energy, artificial intelligence, smart-tech and so much more. I think that this really brings to light an important issue that EVERYONE can get behind. This is also where nearly all of my investments go, as I think it is that important. Also, this is why I think that this Samsung charity app is so important. It can help bring people into the fold, and contribute to the future of our planet.
