The crisis caused by the coronavirus is awakening the most sympathetic side of many Spaniards, who do not hesitate to give their neighbors a hand in the face of any adversity. And also among the companies. This is the case of Bla Bla Car, who has created a specific App for this period of confinement we are facing. Available in Spain, France, Germany, Russia, Brazil and Ukraine Bla Bla Help connects neighbors who need help making purchases with volunteers with verified profiles of trust.
Only in Spain would allow more than 5 million people to collaborate with each other. To use it, the first step is to download the free “BlaBlaHelp” app. You can enter directly with the BlaBlaCar account or you can create a new profile.
Users who want to volunteer can register [AQUÍ] like “Helpers”. People looking for help, whether they are BlaBlaCar users or not, or those who know that need can search for the closest Helpers, find out about their validated, trusted profile and contact them directly.
The application is one more step in the BlaBlaCar Helpers community. Since two years ago, platform helpers, experienced users, have voluntarily and freely helped other users in their doubts about the platform to promote the use of car sharing. As recognized by the company “now is the time for our user community to join. The more volunteers, the more useful the service and the more impact we can see,” says Nicolas Brusson, CEO and co-founder of BlaBlaCar.
Álvaro Zamácola, general director of BlaBlaCar for Spain and Portugal assures that “there are initiatives that have been launched with the same objective in several countries, but many of them are local or regional and we wanted to take advantage of the potential of having more than 5 million users in Spain and 90 million users in the world to be able to make a homogeneous product that would help more people. We also had profiles already verified that would help people who needed help to have greater confidence, something that encouraged us to provide this help to which we would love to have the more volunteers the better. ”
BlaBlaHelp is available today in free beta for Android and iOS.
Since the beginning of this BlaBlaCar crisis has been in contact with the authorities to provide information to its users. From March 4, the platform began to recommend its users not to travel and announced the returns of reservations without extra cost.
