Samsung’s New App Feature Motivates Galaxy Users to Advance the Global Goals
Encourage your friends and family to work together to advance the Global Goals, and track your progress through the new Donation Leaderboard feature of the Samsung Global Goals app
Small actions can lead to a large impact. As citizens of the planet, we all have a responsibility to take care of people and the Earth, our home.
This is why in 2019, Samsung Electronics partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to launch the Samsung Global Goals (SGG) app. The SGG app allows the Galaxy community to donate directly to the Global Goals, use lock screens to increase ad-earnings and generate funding by watching advertisements in the app. The SGG app helps users learn more about the Global Goals and contribute funding to the Goals that mean the most to them.
Through a newly released app feature, the Donation Leaderboard, Samsung is opening new opportunities for the Galaxy community to get engaged with the Global Goals. By creating a ranking system for donations, the Donation Leaderboard is energizing users to donate to the Goals, track donation progress; and encourage friends, family and other Galaxy users to do the same.
Accessed through the Donate section of the SGG app, the Donation Leaderboard shows users how much they have donated to specific Global Goals, as well as how their donation ranks in comparison to users in their country or users globally. By providing greater visibility into donation history, Samsung hopes this motivates Galaxy users to improve their ranking on the Donation Leaderboard, all for the benefit of progressing the Global Goals.
