New collaboration with All We Wear Group

All We Wear Group and Mastercard collaborate with the Spanish Red Cross in “Pepe Jeans London” stores

all we wear foto logo

AWWG, global fashion group, and Mastercard collaborate with the Spanish Red Cross to offer psychosocial support to those who have suffered the most during the pandemic. Through this initiative, customers of Pepe Jeans London stores will be able to aid people affected by the health crisis, especially the most vulnerable.

Thus, Pepe Jeans London stores in Spain become the first to carry out this initiative, soon to be followed in other markets such as Portugal, Germany, and France. Through our innovative donation mechanism, in which on this occasion we have used Adyen Giving’s technological solution,  Pepe Jeans London clients will be able to make a micro-donation to charity when paying by card.

This innovative donation system is simple, secure, and completely transparent for customers and stores: donations operate as a different transaction from purchases and will go directly to the Spanish Red Cross.

Coping with the pandemic

Aiming to cope with the effects of the pandemic between all, the global fashion group AWWG will be the first to activate this donation method. When paying by card, their customers will be offered three donation options: 0,5€, 1€, and 2€. 100% of every contribution will go to the Spanish Red Cross.

All We Wear Group will be joined by the technology multinational Mastercard in this effort. Both companies will contribute to the fundraising campaign by matching every donation received until doubling the initial budget of 10.000€.

The funds collected will go to the project “Cruz Roja te Escucha,” whose objective is to offer psychosocial support to the following:

  • Those who, due to their circumstances of illness, loneliness, advanced age, loss of employment, functional diversity, or homelessness, among others, are most affected by the pandemic.
  • Relatives and friends of acutely ill patients or victims who died from the disease caused by COVID-19, and to those hospitalized or isolated at home with severe symptoms.
  • Volunteers and workers of the Red Cross, who are carrying out humanitarian work.

Workers and volunteers of the Red Cross, who are specialists in psychosocial support and accompaniment, will provide this service. Regarding the most complex cases or situations, they will be aided by psychology professionals of the Organization who specialize in different areas of psychological care.

Charity Rounding Up in favour of Vicente Ferrer Foundation

capcelera_bp

bpThis August, the customers of Bonpreu i Esclat Supermarket can round up the total amount of their purchase and donate the cents to Vicente Ferrer Foundation.

fvfMany families of the most poorest comunities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (in the South of India) live in precarious houses that don’t have the minimum living or hygiene conditions. They also don’t have letrines or a space for their personal hygiene, which forces them to do their physical needs outdoors, with very negative consequences on health and safe. The population lives exposed to the inclement weather, from the monsoon rains to the intense heat that punishes the area and forces them to rebuild them permanently as well as the bites of dangerous animals such as snakes and scorpions.

Having a solid home in conditions of hygiene and safety is an essential requirement to achieve good social integration. For this reason, the money raised during August thanks to the Bonpreu i Esclat Charity Rounding Up will be used to build 20 homes in conditions of health and hygiene for the most disadvantaged families in Chandrapalli.

Charity Rounding Up to collaborate with Save the Children

capcelera_condis

condisCondis Supermarkets start today a new campaign to help Save the Children to promote the development of children under 6 years old in vulnerable situations.

From now on, the customers of Condis who want, can round up their ticket and donate the cents to a social cause each time they pay with card.

The children’s stage (0-6 years) is one of the main stages of development. In this age range, most of the neurological development of children occurs, and is critical in order to reach the cognitive and neurological bases.

37-Save-The-ChildrenThrough the “Let’s Play Together” program, the organization works to reduce the consequences that poverty causes to children and encourage their integral development.

The program works as a space where families who are in precarious, disruptive situations and who experience important challenges can access them with their children.

Through intervention, children develop cognitive, emotional and relational dynamics, placing them in the center of the intervention, as rights holders.

Thanks to all the funds collected, the organization will be able to provide the necessary material for the development of the activities and 40 children under 6, as well as their families, will be part of these activities.

Viena in favor of the labor insertion for people with intellectual disabilities

Charity Rounding Up for AMPANS

LOGO VIENASince some months ago, Viena offers in all their establishments the Charity Rounding Up, a new solution that enables people to make micro-donations for charity each time they pay with card.

The first campaign they collaborated with was dedicated to the research for a future without Alzheimer, together with the Pasqual Maragall Foundation. During the past months, all their customers have had the chance to collaborate with the Gasol Foundation to promote the physical exercise to improve children’s health.

“Cent to cent, we create opportunities”

logo_ampansNow, Viena starts a new campaign with the main aim of promote the labor insertion of people with intellectual disabilities, and they will do so with AMPANS Foundation.

The AMPANS Foundation accompanies people with intellectual disabilities of vulnerable situations so that they can develop their life projects, ensuring their rights, offering support and creating opportunities that make it possible.

ampans3

Having a job makes people live fully, feel useful and contribute to society. In AMPANS, people with intellectual disabilities are helped to obtain and maintain a workplace in standardized environments, but when the incorporation into the world of business is not possible, the foundation creates adapted workplaces, with a wide range of possibilities to find the right place for each person.

One of the labor insertion projects that AMPANS wants to promote is an agro-social tourism project on the Urpina region, in the heart of Catalonia.

Cent to cent, the customers of Viena will collect to promote the agro-social tourism project that AMPANS develops in Urpina (Catalonia). The initiative will provide a workplace for 40 people with special needs in the coming years, and will raise awareness for the socio-labor inclusion of people with disabilities to the more than 20,000 visitors who are expected that will visit the farm.

Social Round Up to collaborate with Juegaterapia

capcelera

LOGO_POSITIVOSánchez Romero Supermarkets start today a new fundraising campaign through our Social Round Up. On this occasion, the objective is to raise funds so that Juegaterapia will be able to reform the “Hospital Niño Jesús” (Madrid) and make it more attractive to children.

The “Hospital Niño Jesús” in Madrid is one of the oldest one in the location. It is right in front of the Retiro Park, one of the main leisure venues, a place where the locals go to enjoy the green surroundings, to practice different sports or to enjoy cultural or social activities. It is a space which contrast with the Hospital.

logo-juegaterapiaThe idea for the project is born from this contrast between two venues that are physically so close. On the one hand, the hospital where children spend so much time “confined”, and on the other, the park, open, inviting, a place of enjoyment.

The project is intended to transform the look of the Hospital and give it a new look and fill it with light. The Hospital will be refurbished, its hallways and common areas to depict very recognizable landscapes mimicking the nearby Retiro Park. Children will be able to look at birds, trees and flowers with their eyes and their imagination.

Captura

Now, those customers of Sanchez Romero who want to round up their ticket and donate few cents to the project, will collaborate with Juegaterapia to reform the corridor of the 0 floor of the Hospital.

You can get more information about this project and check the daily fundraising status through this LINK.

One week for GivingTuesday!

Next Tuesday,  we will celebrate GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

CapturaCelebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Its main mission is to dedicate a day around the world, this year on November 28, to celebrate the action of giving, be it food, money, time (volunteering), second-hand objects, etc. It is born as a counterpart to the already famous #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday; days in which, as you know, the massive purchase of gifts is promoted.

Although all the “Companies With a Cause” that collaborate with Worldcoo encourage this action day after day, we don’t want to miss the  opportunity to claim, especially that day, the need to share and collaborate with social causes.

Promofarma, MeQuedoUno, Sprinter or Planeta Huerto are some of the companies that have joined the movement with different special actions for that day.

collage_empreses

 Last year, during this day in Spain we raised more than € 500,000 for 321 projects; for this 2017, the goal is to reach € 700,000.

Uvinum against child malnutrition

Yamuna 04

yamuna-781The NGO Yamuna works with the objective of improving the living conditions and the future expectations of the marginal children population. In Madagascar, the NGO’s Mandrosoa Educational Center welcomes children who live in very precarious situations and can’t count on the support of their family. In the center they also offer a dining service to guarantee that children have, at least, one meal a day and fight against child malnutrition in the country.

355After raising the amount needed to operate 40 children in India and reduce new leprosy cases (you can remember HERE), Uvinum users will now help the NGO Yamuna to make it possible to distribute new daily menus and ensure adequate nutrition and combat child malnutrition.

Through their help, 50 children in Madagascar  will be guaranteed one meal a day at school.

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