Not using my phone for something much more vital

It is no secret that I am addicted to my mobile phone. And although I have been trying to work on my addiction nothing has worked so far. But I think…I think I found the perfect rehab; the Unicef Tap Project. UNICEF-TAP-PROJECT-phone-2014

A special app developed by Unicef that runs in the background and measures when my phone goes idle. So you can still send me message – I just cannot respond to them. Because if my phone stays idle for 10 mintues donors like Giorgio Armani will give money to UNICEF. Not using my phone for even such a short amount of time equals one day of clean drink water for a child that normally doesn’t have access to this luxury.

Because where as I am thinking that I cannot live without my phone, over 768 million people are living without access to clean water. And I am well aware that this is a much more important resource than my iPhone. Water scarcity already affects nearly 40% of the world’s population and is predicted to become an even larger problem in the upcoming years.

So if I can only contribute a little by not using my phone I am more than happy to do so. And I really think so should you! Go to uniceftapproject.org on your phone and join! The Tap Project App is working until the 31st of March. So let’s call each other on  the first of April…no joke!
