Unicef Tap Project

Today's post is very different, but it's still something I really wanted to write about. I found out about UNICEF Tap Project not very long ago, and I think it's a fantastic project and a great way to help and not many people know about it, which is why I wanted to share it will you.


What is UNICEF Tap Project? Well, for every five minutes you spend off your phone, Unicef will donate one day of clean water to a child in need. And all you have to do is open their website, and go live your life. And if you're bored without your phone, don't worry! It's not the end of the world! Their site will show you cool facts while you're letting time pass.

The idea after this project is that many people claim they can't live without your phone. And meanwhile, millions of children don't have access to clean water. So Unicef challenges you to see how long you can go without something less vital...

I think this is a great idea, because not only can you help those who need it in a very comfortable way for you, but this project can also help you!

Yes, you. It can help you stay off your phone when you need to avoid distractions - like if you're in class, or at work, or working on a new post for your blog. It can help you socialize more! Nex time you're going out for lunch with your friends, or your family, or your SO, I challenge you to open their site on your and your companions' phones to keep you from using it all the time.

I've also been letting their website open all night since my sister told me about this project, so you can help without really doing anything! (Just make sure your phone is connected to a power source, or you'll wake up with no battery. Yep... that happened to me...)

And I'm also challenging you to beat my record! (the one I did awake, of course)


Question of the Day

Can you live without your phone?

El post de hoy es bastante diferente, pero aun así quería escribir sobre ello. Hace no mucho, descubrí el proyecto Tap Project de UNICEF, y me pareció un proyecto fantástico y una forma genial de ayudar , y no mucha gente sabe de él, por lo que quería compartirlo con vosotros.


¿Qué es el proyecto Tap Project de UNICEF? Pues verás, por cada cinco minutos que pases sin usar el móvil, unicef dona un día de agua potable a un niño que lo necesite. Y lo único que tú tienes que hacer es abrir su página web, e ir a vivir tu vida. Y si te aburres sin poder usar tu teléfono, ¡no te preocupes! ¡El mundo no se acaba aquí! Porque en la web te va mostrando datos interesantes para que se te haga más ameno dejar que el tiempo pase.

La idea que inspiró este proyecto es que muchas personas aseguran que no pueden vivir sin su teléfono móvil. Y mientras tanto, millones de niños ni siquiera tienen acceso a agua potable. Así que Unicef decidió retarte a ver cuánto tiempo puedes pasar tú sin algo muchos menos vital...

Me parece que es una idea genial, porque no solo puedes ayudar a los que no necesitan de una forma muy cómoda para ti, sino porque además, ¡este proyecto de puede ayudar a ti!

Sí, sí, a ti. Te puede ayudar a mantenerte alejado del teléfono cuando necesites evitar distracciones - como cuando estás en clase, o en el trabajo, o escribiendo un nuevo post para tu blog- 'Y también te puede ayudar a socializarte! Te propongo algo, la próxima vez que salgas a comer con tus amigos, o tu familia, o tu pareja, te reto a abrir esta página en todos vuestros móviles para así evitaros usarlos.

Otra cosa que hago, es abrir esta página por la noche mientras estoy dormida, así puedo ayudar sin hacer realmente nada. (Eso sí, asegúrate de tener el móvil cargando, o cuando te despiertes habrá muerto. Sí... lo digo porque a mí también me ha pasado).

¡Ah! ¡Y también te reto a superar mi record! (el que hice despierta, por supuesto)


Pregunta del día

  5. This is an amazing campaign! Thank you so much for writing about it and letting everyone know - I hadn't heard of it before. I'm not too bad for being glued to my phone but it's always a nice challenge to see how long you can go, and even better when you are helping out with such a wonderful campaign. Off to get the website up now! :)
