Supermarkets with a cause: Bon Preu y Esclat

bonpreu-esclatSome days ago we talked about the importance that brands have a strong social commitment. In fact, according to the study titled “Brands with values ®: The power of the consumer-citizen,  nearly  60% of population prefer those brands that respect environment, cares about social aspects or  take care of their employers.

That’s why every time there are more companies which use one of our fundraising channels in order to show their social commitment and empower their customers to make their little contribution.

In this context, Bon Preu y Esclat Supermarket has launched two new challenges so that their customers can make their little contribution:

  • 535-244-LOGO_BCN_COMPARTEIX_mes_intens_+logo_NsFSharing food: the population with lack of food resources is increasing, a situation that has been aggravated by the economic crisis. With the help of the customers of Bon Preu 50 people will receive a daily food during one month through Nutrición Sin Fronteras.

 

How they can collaborate?

The customers of Bon Preu y Esclat can collaborate trough the accumulated money in their customer card. They can do it in the Private Space of the web or through the app BonpreuEsclat. More information 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.

Cholera outbreak emergency campaign

UNICEF_UN065871_Alzekri

unicefTo the conflict that already threatens millions of children in Yemen, a dangerous outbreak of cholera is now linked. Health services, halved by the conflict, are on the verge of collapse and do not provide enough to meet the growing number of people suffering from this disease.

Without a proper water and sanitation system, cholera is transmitted at high speed and without health centers or economic resources, it is not possible to face a health emergency like this.

logoIn front of this bad situation, Unicef is working to deal this outbreak of cholera, distributing medical supplies and drinking water. After collaborating with Codespa Foundation in order to train young people at risk of social exclusion, Nicequest users will join Unicef in the cholera prevention.

With their help, 1.170 Yemen children will have access to drinking water for a year to prevent further cholera infections.

PcComponentes against child malnutrition in Spain

1

Did you know that in Spain 1 in 3 children are at risk of social exclusion?

educoThe risk of poverty and social exclusion of children in Spain has increased to 33.4; a situation that undoubtedly has an impact on the emergence of problems related to child nutrition and affects their physical and social development.

In order to fight against this situation, PcComponentes customers have started a new campaign in which they will help EDUCO to implement their project “Lunchroom Shcolarships”.

Their challenge is to ensure that 10 children at risk of social exclusion can have a daily meal.  

pcThe launching of this campaign coincides with the financing of its previous project, which helped 250 children to continue their social and educational activity during the summer (you can remember HERE).

Remember that you can check the actual campaign status at any time HERE.

A summer full of opportunities

jovenes adsis

Continuing socio-educational activity in summer is key to preventing risky behaviour and offering opportunities that normally young people at risk of social exclusion do not have access to.  This is, among other, one of the main priorities of Adsis Foundation and now the customers of PcComponentes will be able to contribute to this same cause.

leadImage_previewAfter collecting the necessary funds in order to CRIS Cancer Foundation could fund a new treatment for a kid with cancer (you can remember the project HERE), the new challenge for PcComponentes will be helping Adsis Foundation to ensure that 250 kids and teenagers between 11 and 18 years old from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Barcelona and Valencia can assist to educational and cultural workshops, sports activities and receive breakfast and snacks during this summer.

These are young people who are in situation of vulnerability and because of economic limitations they do not have access to leisure activities.

Fundación Adsis works to turn situations of inequality into opportunities. During the school year, it offers emotional and educational support to children and adolescents and is also present during the holidays, to continue the work done with the children during the year and void situations of neglect and street and at the same time give young people the opportunity to have a vacation.

capcelera_eng

Today we welcome a new “ecommerce with cause” to the Worldcoo community. This is Decántalo, one of the main online stores in the sale of Spanish wine around Europe.

In addition to finding more than 3,000 varieties of products, wine lovers now also have the option of contributing their bit to humanitarian and environmental causes through the micro-contributions they have to make through our widget. Welcome!

logoThe first of these will be to facilitate access to education for refugee children in Kathmandu, Nepal. They will do it together with the NGO Street Child who, among others, works to promote education to children living on the street and not have had the opportunity to go to school, as well as promote the Social cohesion and integration of these children.

The challenge of the users of Decántalo will be provide learning material to 60 kids from Kathmandu in order to promote their education.

#CompromisoMascoteros, the first social program of Mascoteros

 

capcelera_eng

We introduce you our first ecommerce with cause dedicated to pets!

mascoteros_900They are Mascoteros, the first Spanish marketplace related to the world of pets.  If you didn’t know them you will now have opportunity to do it, because they just have joined to Worldcoo community with their new initiative #MascoterosCommitment.

Though this new initiative, they will offer their customers the opportunity to add done, two or five euros to each purchase they do and contribute to the defense of animal rights, one of its main commitments.

logo-dainaIn their first challenge, they will help Conan and three more dogs who, like him, live in one of the refuges of the Fundation for the Defense of Animals and Nature, an entity created by the Animal Protection Society of Mataró (spAm).

When Conan arrived at the Foundation, more than 10 years ago, he had clear signs of neglect and he was quite thin. After different therapies, Conan is now a loving and obedient dog, fully prepared to find a new home.

The total amount collected by Mascoteros users will go to “Great animals for great people” program, and with it, the Foundation will  guarantee the life support and veterinary care of Conan and three other older dogs found. Something that will undoubtedly promote its adoption.

Demis Torres, CEO of Mascoteros tells us that “the agreement with Worldcoo allows us to take a step forward in the defense and promotion of animal rights. There are many entities that today do not have the necessary resources to ensure the maintenance and veterinary treatment of the animals they welcome and we are so happy to be able to contribute through our community and in the long term.

The project was launched this morning and the donations were not long in coming! If you want, you can follow the donation process live HERE.
