Hand-in-hand helping thousands!
As you know, we at the Basic Necessities Association (Tider) entered the Step-by-Step platform this year and launched our first campaign. As for me, last week I wrote and shared a campaign message both through e-mail and social media about the new Support Market we aim to open with your help in the Bağcılar-Esenler area, where approximately 100,000 needy people live.
Here is that message:
For over the past year, Basic Necessities Association (Tider) has successfully operated our first pilot Support Market in Maltepe: in the form of food, cleaning supplies and clothing, we have met the basic needs of over 4,000 families, and have found employment for nearly 50 people.
If you haven’t visited Tider’s web-site, I recommend you do so for more details: http://www.tider.org
Now that Support Project (Support Market + Support İK) has proven itself, the time has come for a new initiative in one of Istanbul’s most economically depressed districts. We would like to open a Support Market in the Bağcılar-Esenler area. While there are about 5,000 families in need in Maltepe, the figure for Bağcılar alone is 100,000. By opening a Support Market in Bağcılar-Esenler, we will first be helping to prevent waste as we then match basic necessities to the many in need and provide job placement so that these families can stand on their own two feet.
If you would like to help, please donate to our campaign, the details of which you can find here: https://ipk.adimadim.org/kampanya/CC12976.
Donations can be made through the following link: https://bagis.adimadim.org/?ccid=CC12976.
Thank you in advance for your support.
With my warmest wishes,
I tried, as always, to keep my message brief, succinct and clear. Other campaigns have been launched that are more colorful than mine. I’d like to share one of them, which is a true source of pride for me.
Here is the inspiring and moving campaign message from Burcu Çağdaş:
We’ve been proud to be part of a good cause as we continue to do sports and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I’ve lost 6 kilos in the last month and become fitter than I’d ever expected. I think a lot of the people who have joined our campaign are also enjoying the benefits of doing sports.
There are some big-hearted people who have pitched in through their different sports. For example, the Jüpi Yelken (Sailing) Team. One Sunday we went sailing with the team under the guidance of Melike Esra Karayel. Here’s a photo taken afterwards:
Damla Sargut did an interview with us at the event for publication in Sualtı Gazetesinde:
Let me take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt appreciation to everyone who contributed to the event.
We’d had a lot of fun in all the campaigns, special events and training sessions. Here are some photos of our individual supporters:

I want everyone to know that not a single penny of your donations will be wasted and that we will succeed in opening that Support Market in Bağcılar-Esenler with your support. You will be helping some 100,000 families. Our record speaks for itself.
That is why I ask you to be generous with your contributions.
If you are still not sure how our model works or if you have any more questions, please read some of the posts I have written previously about Tider and Support Project:
