Coinciding with the Multiple Sclerosis World Day, which takes place today, we’re proud to announce that we have recently signed a new collaboration agreement with bonÀrea.
Starting this week, their customers will have the opportunity to round up the total amount of their purchase and collaborate to support people who have multiple sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease that affects more than 2,5 million people in the world.
The new mechanism, which is already working in some establishments, will be implemented progressively during June in all bonÀrea supermarkets.
El project: support for people with Multiple Sclerosis
Among others, one of the consequences of people who are diagnosed with this disease, is the progressive loss of abilities to carry out different day-to-day functions on their own, such as dressing or walking.
The full amount raised through the Social Round Up will help people with MS to participate in therapies and neurorehabilitation sessions that help them to reduce the impact of the disease and guarantee their personal autonomy.
The project will be carried out through the different organizations that work for people with Multiple Sclerosis in each region where bonÀrea has establishments, such as the Fundació Esclerosi Múltiple in Catalonia, the Aragonese Foundation of EM, EM Navarra, the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation Madrid, the Association of the Valencian Community of EM and the Riojana Association of EM.
To participate, anyone who wants can click on the green button when the dataphone asks them, automatically, if they want to round up their purchase for social purposes and continue with the usual payment process.
Through the portal https://bonarea.worldcoo.com you can get more information on each of the projects that will help to fund.
