Students of NEFU Institute of Finances and Economics and Faculty of Philology launched a charity project Helpyshop to collect money for children who are being treated in the Oncology Department of the National Medicine Center of Yakutia.
"Usually charities collect money in the traditional way - by transferring funds to a personal account. We propose to move away from old stereotypes, and launch online shop, where the proceeds from sales will be credited to the account of the Oncology Department of the National Medicine Center of Yakutia", the head of the creative team, student at NEFU Institute of Finances and Economics Anna Matannanova.
Students are residents of student business incubator of NEFU Arctic Innovation Center. "The idea came during Hackaton in November last year. From that moment we started our project, now we sign an agreement with the shops", she said. At the moment, the project cooperates with clothing stores, individual craftsmen and local needlewoman. A demo version of the site and the page in Instagram @helpyshop were launched.
The idea of charity online shop “Helpyshop” will be presented in the program"Preaktum" on February 20 at NEFU Arctic Innovation Center. Currently, there are 8 projects.
