Pc Componentes brings smiles in hospitals this Christmas

Saniclown 2

The customers of PcComponentes have a very special challenge this Christmas: bringing smiles in hospitals.

For the first time, they will do it in collaboration with different NGO: AlgaraklownSaniclownPayaSOSpital Pupaclown.

The objective is to make the hospital stay a more pleasant experience for kids from Madrid, Murcia, País Vasco and Valencia. Their mission is to fill spaces of smiles and generate magical and beautiful moments. The work of the clowns allows to create a more relaxed atmosphere and, thus, doctors and nurses work with greater tranquility and can concentrate on the technical aspects of their actions. The relatives, meanwhile, also respond to the game of clowns and stay more relaxed and calm.

With their help, 200 children will receive the attention of the hospital clowns of Saniclown in the “Hospital Gregorio Marañón” in Madrid, of AlgaraKlown in the “Hospital Universitario” in San Sebastián, of PayaSOSpital in the “Hospital Clínico” in Valencia and of PupaClown in the “Hospital Virgen de la Arrixaca” in Murcia.

logoAs you know, Pc Componentes has been collaborating for a long time with the financing of different projects. The last one has been to collect the necessary funds so that EDUCO can distribute more than 3.000 meals and fight against malnutrition in Spain (you can remember the project HERE).

And remember that you can follow the donation process HERE.

Today is #Giving Tuesday!

capcelera_giving

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to donate, share and help. As you know, it is a movement that was born as an alternative to Black Friday or CyberMonday, days that promote the purchase of gifts before Christmas. Although all the  “Companies with a cause” who collaborate with us, encourage the good actions all year, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to claim, once again, the need to be aware and value the small contributions we do in our daily live, whether they are material or not.

#GT Heart (1)Planeta HuertoDecántaloSprinterSanta FixiePromofarma… many of the companies that collaborate with us have joined this celebration. The last one has been Ticketmaster. We really want to communicate this last agreement. We are so happy to see that every time there are more companies who offer their customers the opportunity to collaborate with many different social causes. Now, when we buy a ticket for any leisure event, we will have the option to add an euro for a concrete socal cause. Each month, a different one.

descargaOf course, all the employees of Worldcoo have also joined this movement that represents us so much; that is why this Friday the 1st we will collaborate with Obra Social San Juan de Dios in the rehabilitation of a flat for Young immigrants.

Last year, during  GivingTuesday more than €500.000 were collected; for this 2017, the goal is to exceed €700.000.

A daily food for children this Christmas

capcelera_nicquest

Did you know that 47% of families could not afford to feed their children enough meals per day?

STACKEDCoinciding with the GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to donate, help and share, Nicequest users initiate a new purpose, which is to get 1,200 children to receive a meal a day at one of the day centers of SOS Children’s Villages.

It is an important challenge if we consider that, at least, 220 million children are frighteningly alone – shut out from a caring family environment and sometimes even rejected by their communities and deprived of basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, education, health care, protection and love.

sos_villageFrom many years ago, SOS Children’s Villages works to guarantee one of the fundamental rights in the life of a child: food. Now all the users of Nicequest will have the chance to do the same.

In addition, Nicequest as a company will double all donations made during Tuesday, November 28 (#GivingTuesday).

You can follow the donation process HERE.

TicketMaster joins Worldcoo community!

WELCOME!

logo_worldcoo_ticketWe are super proud to see that every time there are more companies who offer their users the possibility to collaborate with social projects around the world. In this occasion, it does it one of the biggest: TicketMaster, the world’s leading ticket sales company and first in the sector in Spain.

This means that from now on, when we buy a ticket for going to the theatre, to a concert or to a soccer stadium, for example, we will have the option to add one euro for a concret social cause, like poverty eradication, scientific research or social inclusion.

Each month, TicketMaster will collaborate with a specific NGO, such as “Theodora Foundation, “Unicef” or “Oxfam Intrmon”.

Its first challenge: facilitate the access to drinking water.

The conflict in Lake Chad, caused by the expansión of the Boko Harem group and the military response, implies immense and unknown suffering for millions of people in one of the poorest regions of the world.

In total, more than 11 million people need urgent help. Of these, 7 are at risk of hunger, 450,000 are children.

Insecurity prevents people from accessing basic social services and has destroyed infrastructure. That’s why the work of organizations like Oxfam Intermón is increasingly important. The entity works in the area to deal with this situation, ensuring access to food and drinking water for the displaced population in the area’s basin: Chad, Niger and Nigeria.

On this occasion, Ticketmaster customers will have the opportunity to collaborate with them to rehabilitate and build wells that ensure the distribution of drinking water to people who have fled their homes and communities.

In December they will collaborate with “Theodora Foundation” and throughout 2018, with many other NGO such as “Vicente Ferrer Foundation“, “Uno Entre Cien Mil” or “Unicef“, among others.

HERE you can see the actual fundraising status for each project.

One week for GivingTuesday!

Next Tuesday,  we will celebrate GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

CapturaCelebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Its main mission is to dedicate a day around the world, this year on November 28, to celebrate the action of giving, be it food, money, time (volunteering), second-hand objects, etc. It is born as a counterpart to the already famous #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday; days in which, as you know, the massive purchase of gifts is promoted.

Although all the “Companies With a Cause” that collaborate with Worldcoo encourage this action day after day, we don’t want to miss the  opportunity to claim, especially that day, the need to share and collaborate with social causes.

Promofarma, MeQuedoUno, Sprinter or Planeta Huerto are some of the companies that have joined the movement with different special actions for that day.

 Last year, during this day in Spain we raised more than € 500,000 for 321 projects; for this 2017, the goal is to reach € 700,000.
