Calling all helping hands

Calling all helping hands

After an earthquake hit the city of Van in southeast Turkey, a lot of initiatives were put into place to help rebuild the devastated area. The mobile phone company Turkcell decided to contribute and support projects in the educational sector. They launched a campaign on social responsibility hoping to garner the support of people across the country to help.

When a natural disaster hits, there’s usually a strong sense of unity in society. While we often see people engaging and helping one another, should brands have a more important role to play to heighten social awareness?
