Segítsüti - Cookie Help
The Segítsüti - Cookie Help, founded in 2009, is an internet charity auction, during which bids may be made on cakes offered by gastro-blogger, supporting with this the case or organization (changing every six months) defined at the beginning of the Segítsüti action.
Who are the gastro-bloggers?
The cakes are offered by 27 gastro-bloggers - mothers and fathers. The participating gastro-bloggers (their names and own blogs) and the cakes offered for the bid are revealed on the very day when the bid starts. The Segítsüti campaign is managed by the SoSe Közhasznú Alapítvány (SoSe Foundation). Details of the cakes are posted on each participating bloggers' own blog.
The spring Segítüsti action starts on March 30, when the participating bloggers and the offered cakes are revealed on the Segítsüti main website.
The bid starts on March 30 and ends on April 2, at 23:59.
Most of the material donations (all purchased from the bids amount) get to the supported action of organizaton by Mothers' Day (always the first Sunday in May).
Supported case or organization
Segítsüti always supports a case or organization which is dealing with children care. In 2010 Segítsüti supported four hospitals dedicated for or dealing with preterm infants: I. sz. Gyermekgyógyászati Klinika Budapest, Szegedi Kórház, Péterfy Sándor utcai Kórház Budapest, Miskolci Kórház).
In 2011 spring Segítsüti supports the Down Egyesület, an organization dedicated to help children with Down syndrom.
How Segítsüti supports?
Segítsüti never forwards money to the supported organization, but the amount earned in the cookie-bid is used to purchase all the stuff - requested by the supported organization - which is necessary for children's performance, cure, rehabilitation, training, etc.
The SoSe Közhasznú Alapítvány (SoSe Foundation) in all cases gives itemized account of the total amount of aid, public information for anyone on the Segítsüti website. All invoices from previous years' Segítsüti actions are also available on the Segítsüti website.
