Coviran Supermarket launches our Social Round Up

50 Coviran Supermarkets offer their customers the option to round up their ticket and donate their cents to a social cause.

As many of you know, last spring Coviran Supermarkets, launched the Social Round Up in some of their establishments and its reception was more than satisfactory: 46% of customers who paid by card rounded up their purchase.

Starting today, 50 more Covirán centers join the Social Round Up campaign and all their customers who pay with credit card, will have the opportunity to round up their ticket and donate their cents to a social cause.   Round_up_Worldcoo

 The project: #OneNameOneLife

UNICEFThe total amount collected by the customers of Covirán will go directly to “#UnNOmbreUnaVida” (“#OneNameOneLife”), an iniciative presented this week by UNICEF Spanish Comittee with the aim of increasing the survival rated of babies under one month.

Did you know that about 7,000 newborns die every day, many of them without ever having a name?

The reason is because, in some countries of the world, where life expectancy is very low, there are parents who don’t name their babies because they think it will be easier to forget them if they do not survive. The first month of life is the most crucial for children’s survival, but every year 2.5 million babies die before completing it.

If urgent measures are not taken, approximately 28 million newborns will die by 2030, most of them due to premature births, complications during childbirth or infections such as sepsis, pneumonia or meningitis.

80% of these newborns – 5,600 babies every day – can be saved thanks to simple and low-cost solutions such as a vaccine, a mosquito net, a thermal blanket or an antibiotic. Therefore, UNICEF Spanish Committee launches the campaign for the survival of newborns #UnNombreUnaVida, whose goal is that all babies have a name and a life to live and enjoy.

CARTELL

Through the Solidarity Roundup, Covirán customers will have the opportunity to collaborate to make it happen.

  • With only 50 cents, the entity will be able to vaccinate 1 child against polio.
  • With € 1, 5 children can be vaccinated against tuberculosis.

If you want, you can get the status of live collection or get more information about the campaign in THIS LINK.

Establishment with cause

alimentació_anglesThrough this new agreement, Covirán incorporates the stamp of “Establishment with cause” in its more than 50 supermarkets, a distinction we give to those companies that bet on new models of solidarity collection and that, through small donations, manage to help large causes.

New mattresses for orphans in Mozambique

cabecera

In Mozambique, more than two million kids have lost their parents, most of them, due to infectious diseases such as AIDS.

logoThe need to take care and help those kids is so big that the South Mozambique Foundation has created a shelter – La Casa do Gaiato – in the South of the country. In total, it welcomes around 160 children and young people who they also proportionate human, academic and professional education.

One of the main needs that they have now is the lack of mattresses where the little ones can rest and sleep, and Maxcolchon will help them to get it.

After completing their last project, with which they helped make Timothy’s dream come true (you can remember it here), all customers who buy a rest product through their website, will have the option to add a social euro to their purchase and collaborate with the Mozambique South Foundation.

In addition, the company will donate the same amount that will be collected among all micro-donations made by Maxcolchon’s clients until the financing of the project is completed.

Thanks to this, the entity will be able to acquire 32 mattresses that will help children and young people of Casa do Gaiato to rest as they should.

Emergency campaign in Indonesia

capcelera

Last Friday 28th, an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 on the Richter scale followed by a violent tsunami, shook the island of Celebes, in the center of Indonesia and caused a very severe situation for its population.

One week later, the National Agency for Disaster Management of Indonesia (BNPB) has updated the balance of deaths due to the earthquake and tsunami with more than 1,500 deceaseds. In addition, there are about 800 people seriously injured in different hospital centers. The numbers of affected people are increasing and there are still a large number of isolated populations.

FAVOR_UNICEFIn front of this catastrophe, UNICEF is giving aid to affected people, with special focus on children who, after a tragedy like this, are the most vulnerable and the action that is taken after the first days is crucial for them.

For this reason, we have activated three emergency campaigns so that customers and employees of Banco Sabadell, Nicequest y PcComponentes can make a micro-donation and collaborate with the UNICEF Spanish Committee with the objective of reuniting children with their families, providing services doctors, ensure access to food, distribute water and sanitation to prevent diseases and promote the return to school as soon as possible.

  • With € 60, the entity will be able to provide drinking water to 530 children for a week.
  • With € 90 they will be able to send 3 first aid kits.
  • With € 120, they will be able to send 2 family water and hygiene kits to collect, store and treat water in an emergency situation.

Ticketmaster supports breast cancer patients

capcelera_AECC

As many of you know, the October 19th takes place the International Breast Cancer Day, the most common cancer in women. There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer each year (IARC Globocan, 2008).

The diagnosis of cancer has serious consequences for the person diagnosed and their family emotionally, economically and socially.

That is why the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) carries out various accompaniment and psychological support programs so that these people have the support they need from professionals and volunteers, completely free of charge.

In line with the “Charity Euro” Ticketmaster campaign, during October, the company supports this social cause which will affect, directly or indirectly, to all of us at some point of our lives.

Collaborate against leukemia in children

capcelera_unoentrecienmil

Join Worldcoo’s “ecommerce with cause” community!

Did you know that nearly 80% of consumers choose one brand or another depending on its values?  Aspects such as quality and price are no longer a priority for clients, who prefer those brands which provide an added value to society.

The current project: research against childhood cancer

CapturaThe current campaign that we have available for e-commerces comes from Unoentrecienmil, a foundation that was born in 2012 with the main objective of  supporting the investigation of childhood leukemia, developing innovate projects whose benefits are 100% dedicated to the investigation against this disease.

The purpose

Did you know that leukemia is the most common cancer in children and teens? Thanks to medical research, 80% of children who suffer from this disease, survive. Despite this, innovation in new safe and effective therapies remains insufficient. Through the amount collected through all the companies that are part of the group of “ecommerce with cause”, the Foundation will be able to deepen the knowledge of the disease and generate new treatments that will advance in its cure.

Because -as they say- “to investigate is to advance“.
