We celebrate the World Food Day

Committed with the objective “Zero Hunger” of the SDG

Today, October 16, takes place the World Food Day, an initiative led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) with the aim of claiming the access to food worldwide.

It is a purpose that coincides with one of the Sustainable Development Goals that the United Nations established for 2030: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”.

In Worldcoo there are many companies that since they implemented one of our fundraising solutions, such as the Charity Rouding Up, they have facilitated that their customers and employees could collaborate to achieve the hunger eradication worldwide.

capcelera_2m

2MWe are proud to announce that this year we have already reached more than 2 million donations made through some of the different fundraising channels that we have for all the on and off line companies who collaborate with us.

Aladina Foundation, Saniclown, Educo or Adsis are some of the latest organizations that have been beneficiaries from the different fundraising campaigns companies such as Ticketmaster, Condis, Hawkers or Bonpreu i Esclat have carried out.

The good reception that our Social Round Up channel have had, has been a key aspect to achieve these results. As you know, the tool allows to round up the total amount of our purchase and donate the cents to a social cause in an easy, transparent and effective manner.

Cent to cent, together, we have achieved this result that will contribute to help those who need it the most.

Our 2018

cabecera_memoria

Our Annual Corporate Report is now available

The 2018 has been the year of implementation and consolidation of the Social Round Up as our new fundraising channel for social causes. In total, more than 300 establishments have offered their customers the option to round up their ticket, which has allowed us to achieve more than 260,000 donations.

On the other hand, our fundraising channel for ecommerce, has doubled the number of donations versus the previous year.

The collaboration of the 50 “companies with a cause” that have implemented one of our four fundraising solutions (Social Round Up, Charity Widget, Social Platform and Online Bank) have allowed us to get 444,774 donations.

But the most important thing for us is that all these donations made in 2018 have enabled that 84,000 people from 74 different countries receive help through the 74 campaigns that have been funded, most of all related to health, education and food projects.

The Social Round Up presentation

capcelera

Yesterday afternoon, we celebrate the presentation of the Social Round Up, our new fundraising mechanism that has already helped us to collect more than 900,000 donations thanks to the 500 commercial establishments who already offer their customers the option to round up their ticket for charity.

During the event, that brought together more than 150 people, we listened the experience of some of the companies that have already implemented this new channel, such as Condis, Viena or the Bon Preu Group, as well as the beneficiary entities of the new channel, such as “Arrels“, Educo, Pasqual Maragall Foundation and “Casal dels Infants“.

Although each of them explained their own experience from the business and social point of view; all of them highlighted the good reception of Solidarity Rounding by the clients. In fact, the first surveys conducted show that 83% of people who donated would do it again. Proof of this is that since last year, more than €300,000 have been collected so far.

In addition, Alfred Vernis, Director of Sustainability of Intitex and ESADE professor, explained the importance of social actions and the relationship of companies with social entities, and Elisabet Carnicé, journalist and presenter, made that the event conduction was a success.

All this happened in the “Antiga Fàbrica d’Estrella Damm“, the support of Diari Ara and Corresponsables.

Condis Supermarkets joins our Social Round Up system!

logo-condisSome days ago, we announced that Covirán started to offer their customers the possibility to round up their final ticket and donate the cents to UNICEF Spanish Committee.  Today, we’re happy to share with you that Condis Supermarket have also integrated the Social Round Up to their establishments.

From now on, all the customers of Condis who buy in Catalunya and Madrid will have the opportunity to collaborate with Arrels Foundation or Educo.

How to collaborate?

If you intend to pay by card, the cashier will ask if you want to round the final amount of the purchase and donate the cents to a social cause. If yes, you only have to confirm the action and the round price will be applied. Otherwise, the usual purchase process will be followed. Thus, for example, if the purchase amounts to € 42.70, it will be proposed to pay € 43.


The first project: double collaboration

Logo_Arrels_negreThe clients of the establishments located in Catalonia, will be able to round off the final amount of their purchase and donate the cents to help Arrels Fundació to provide a decent accommodation for homeless people in Barcelona. The entity accompanies these people on their way to autonomy, offering accommodation, food and social and health care.

LOGO-EDUCO-CHILDFUNDThose who do so in centers in Madrid, will collaborate with Educo to offer lunch scholarships to children at risk of poverty and social exclusion. Thanks to this help, it is ensured that the children can access the school canteen and have at least one balanced and complete meal a day.

The customers can follow the donation process or have more information about both projects through THIS LINK.


Establishments with Cause

alimentació_anglesWith the integration of the Social Round Up, Condis receives the “Establishments with Cause” stamp, a distinction which gives information about the companies who collaborate with social causes by card payment.

Are you a retail and would like to integrate the Social Round Up to your establishments?  Contact us and we will give you all the details: contact@worldcoo.com

Nearly 40 years ago, the  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) designed the 16th of October as the  World Food Day with the aim of to raise awareness of society about the world food problem and promote solidarity against hunger, malnutrition and poverty.

Numbers confirm that the number of people suffering from hunger int the world is increasing, reaching 821 million people worldwide, that is, one in nine. In addition, FAO warns that more than 150 million children suffer from stunting due to the difficulty access to proper nutrition.

As you know, one of the causes that we support is to end hunger and malnutrition in the world, one of the Sustainable Developmnt Goals for 2030. There are many companies that through our widget contribute to eradicate famine in the world.

Some of them…?

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.

If you have an e-commerce, we invite you to join our “e-commerce with cause” community and include our social widget in your commerce.

What is the Worldcoo charity widget?

With the installation of a plug&play in the payment process of your ecommerce, you can offer your customers the option of adding a social micro-donation to their shopping cart and collaborate with different entities.

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“.
