At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown in the states, Rapsodo announced it would be making donations to Right To Play and Turn 2 For Youth.
The global pandemic is affecting all of our families, businesses, communities, and way of life. We believe hard times like these require action that unites. With these donations, we hope to unite communities, children and teams.
Today we announced the donation to Right To Play would total to $26 thousand.
“We believe sport has the power to unite and bring together people regardless of distance, beliefs or backgrounds,” Batuhan Okur, founder and CEO of Rapsodo, said. “We want underserved and vulnerable children to have the opportunity to enjoy the games we love and to be healthy and active through sport.”
Right To Play is an international non-profit organization. It empowers vulnerable children to overcome the effects of war, poverty, and disease around the world through play. Right To Play helps over 2 million children every year in 14 countries. Our $26 thousand donation will help give kids access to quality education through sport and play-based programs.
“On behalf of the board and staff at Right To Play, I would like to thank Rapsodo and their community of supporters for their very generous gift that will protect, educate, and empower the world’s most vulnerable children,” Chelcey Remstad, National Director of Right To Play, said. “You are giving kids access to quality education through our sport and play-based programs and remote initiatives. You are also giving them the tools they need to stay healthy and safe. For that, we are most grateful and say thank you!”
Rapsodo is known for helping athletes analyze real-time metrics to perfect their game. But at the end of the day, bringing people together and inspiring children to be healthy and active through sport falls within the realms of our mission as well.
“We want to thank our customers for investing in themselves and our technology during these difficult times. These donations would not be possible if it weren’t for our customers,” Okur said.
