Every day we wake up and walk to the bathroom to wash, walk to the kitchen to eat, walk to the room to get changed, walk to work, walk to supermarket to buy stuffs, walk to meet friends and people, and walk to exercise.
Walking. This seemingly common and small action done on daily basis seems really trivial to many people. However, there are people who cannot do such daily and regular activity. Thus Bigwalk has decided to give special meanings to our walks so that we can share with those who cannot.
Bigwalk is a free application which enables smartphone users to donate by walking, a daily life activity. Just by starting the application and walking, the users can donate 1 won per 100m.
First, Bigwalk starts out by helping out the amputees. Amputees in Korea are increasing at a rate of 25 people per day, adding up to 8694 amputees per year. But leg prosthesis is highly expensive even with the government’s financial support. Thus Bigwalk wishes to provide amputees with safe and high quality artificial legs with the donations collected.
Bigwalk wishes to create a new business/donation platform where giving and donating is part of every day life.
Bigwalk wishes to open up the opportunity for the public to be aware of the significance of small sum donation.
Bigwalk wishes to achieve and make things possible by putting meanings into walking, a small and everyday behavior.
Bigwalk wishes to share by walking.
