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“.

Today is International Childhood Cancer Day

Each year, there are more than 215,000 new cases childhood cancer. Even so, the good news is that medical research is advancing and scientific advances have made that there will be more medical treatments and the survival increases.

Part of it is thanks to those people who, in a disinterested way, contribute to promote and promote medical research, whether through donations, awareness and dissemination campaigns or volunteering. In that sense, the work carried out by all the companies that facilitate collaboration in these causes with employees and customers of each entity is equally important.

CapturaTicketmaster, for example, this February is collaborating with Unoentrecienmil, a foundation that was born in 2012 with the aim of supporting the research of childhood leukemia in an opportunity to develop innovative projects. Through the money that all the customers of Ticketmaster collect this month, the Foundation will be able to provide a two-year research grant that will allow a medical-scientific team to work continuously in the investigation of childhood leukemia. So far, they have collected almost 2.000€! You can follow the donation process here.

Promofarma brings smiles to hospitalized children

capcelera_promofarma

Play is vital to children’s development, but what happens when a child is hospitalized? Overnight they are subjected to long and traumatic treatments, and also confined in a room.

logo-aladinaThe Aladina Foundation has been working for 11 years to support children with cancer. For this Christmas, the entity has organized some workshops, visits and parties designed exclusively so that hospitalized children can escape from their routine at the hospital and enjoy a full Christmas of activities and fun.

LogoPromoFarma-OKAfter collecting the necessary amount to make that RECOVER Foundation can improve the health of 100 women and kids in Cameroon (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Promofarma have the opportunity to collaborate with Aladina Foundation now.

The objective is to facilitate an escape route from the hospital routine, allowing children to escape, share games with other kids and learn.

PC Componentes fights against child cancer

CRIS - Antonio Perez Maria
 “An investment for the life”
In Spain, every year, 1.400 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in children.

logo_CRIS

In front of this frightening figure, there are entities, such as Fundación CRIS Cáncer, which promote and finance research and innovation projects for the treatment and cure of the disease.

This is the case of “Project Gabi”. Gabi was a 13-year-old girl who, after undergoing several standard treatments, couldn’t eradicate her disease. Their parents decided to trust Dr. Antonio Pérez in order to start a new treatment, new in Spain, which consists of transferring to patients large amounts of Natural Killer (NK) cells and memory T cells, which are cells of the immune system specialized in destroying dangerous cells, such as tumor cells. Thanks to this new treatment, Gabi could live two more years.

Since then, the Hospital de la Paz, in Madrid, began to investigate in this type of cellular therapies that can be a very important step for the cure of this disease.

PcComponentes has joined this cause in order to CRIS Cancer could carry out this new clinical trial and enable such treatment to other patients that today have no cure. It is, as Gabi’s mother says, “an investment for the life”.

Through the amount raised, CRIS Cancer will be able to  treat children with leukemia and other solid childhood tumors that don’t respond to conventional or relapsing treatments. Although it is at a very early stage, clinical trials like this raise expectations about the prevention and cure of this disease are very high, but for this, economic investments are needed.

The project will be carried out at the Hospital de la Paz in Madrid, in collaboration with other hospitals and research centers.

New progress in Project Lydia

-WORLDCOO REPORT-

Did you know that every year 1.400 children and teenagers are diagnosed of cancer in Spain?

Months ago, Dreivip users research the necessary capital to participate in Project Lydia, a campaign leaded by Cris Cancer Foundation, who has the objective of develop new therapies and treatments more effective and less aggressive for child and young people with cancer.

So today we come with good news! Thanks to their solidarity collaboration, 1 new kid has been included in a clinical trial that pursues this objective.

As you know, one of our commitments is showing total transparency in each euro donated and show the results of all the projects our e-commerce are involved with.  In that sense, we bring you the final report of Cris Contra el Cáncer.

World Cancer Day: We can. I can.

Today 4th of February is World Cancer Day, a day where all the world is awareness about a disease which this year will kill more than 8 million of people around the world. Today millions of people join against a disease that knows no boundaries and it claims more lives worldwide.

Cancer is a process of growth and uncontrolled expansion of cells. It can appear in practically everywhere of your body. Many kinds of cancer would be able to prevent avoiding body exposure to common risk factors, for example, to snuff smoke and sunshine.

Luckily, through surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy a big percentage of different kinds of cancer can be cured, especially, if the cancer is detected in an early stage. For this reason, the earlier prevention and detection are fundamental to finish with this disease.

The highest rates of mortality because of this disease are given by the lack of early detection of the disease and the difficulty people have in accessing to available treatments. For this, the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) asks the government to urgently reaffirm their commitment with the following “essential measures” that can help to save lives:

  • Vaccine program implementation in order to prevent infections that cause cervical or liver cancer.
  • Have more access to early detection program, to cancer screening tests of cervical, breast or intestine and have a follow-up treatment.
  • Improvement of taxes, regulation and tobacco control.
  • Pain relief and palliative care to all cancer patients.

According to World Cancer Day, Cris Cancer Foundation has announced that this 2016 it is going to donate one million euros to research projects in different hospitals, centres or institutes because Cris Cancer Foundation believe that the research is the way to overcoming the disease.

Today’s society is ever more conscious about the fact that the research has an essential role in the eradication of cancer and they know that in Spain we are in the queue of investment. For this reason, people wants to donate their money to top projects having results in our country because cancer is a disease that involves everybody, most of us meet somebody who suffers this disease.”- Marta Cardona, director of Cris Cancer Foundation

From Worldcoo, we encourage you to collaborate with Cris Cancer Foundation to help to end with a disease that affects us all. One way to do that is donate 1€ each time you make a purchase in Dreivip (for more information about the project click here).

Under this year’s theme, “We can. I can” the World Cancer Day give the opportunity to reflect and thinking about what we want to do in order to commit us and take action. Go to www.worldcancerday.org and discover all the things WE CAN do and all the things I CAN do against cancer.

#NewProject PcComponentes & Fundación Caíco; Financial assistance for families with children with cancer.

This spring Pccomponentes and its users will contribute to the Project Financial assistance for families with children with cancer from Caico Foundation to help those families who are in this hard situation.

Childhood cancer includes those tumours diagnosed in children and adolescents below 15 yea rs of age. Today, childhood tumours are becoming more important every day in pediatric pathology. The chance of developing cancer before 15 in Spain is 0.29 in boys and 0.23 for girls, according to data provided by the Foundation. Every year more than 1,200 new cases are diagnosed in Spain.

Childhood tumours differ in many aspects of tumours of adults, from the histological patterns, the anatomical site where you develop or epidemiological, clinical, therapeutic and prognostic aspects. While advances in treatment have increased the survival rate for many childhood cancers, the disease is still the second leading cause of death (following accidents) in children ages 0-14.
