Querol’s customers can Round Up their ticket and collaborate to social causes!

querolThe customers of Zapaterías Querol can now round up the final amount of their purchase and donate their cents to the NGO Manos Unidas in order to improve primary education and the access to water in Kiri, a small village in Burkina Faso.

manos unidasAs you know, The Social Round Up is our new fundraising channel that allows us to donate a few cents when paying by card in physical establishments and that have already implemented companies such as Condis Supermarkets or the Viena restaurants.

Improving primary education and access to water in Kiri, Burkina Faso

The total amount that the customers of Querol collect in their nearly 40 stores will go entirely to the NGO Manos Unidas, a Spanish entity that works in close collaboration with the countries of the South. Its mission is to fight against hunger, underdevelopment and lack of education of the peoples of the South, as well as to work to eradicate the structural causes that produce them.

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.

A home for abandoned dogs

worldcoo-amigosperro-acogida

nuevologomascoterosOur friends from Mascoteros, the online shop for pets and animals, have proved being one of the most social committed. Few days ago, we announced that they had completed their first challenge, in which they have helped Daina Foundation to fight against the abandonment of elderly dogs.  Crispín, Conan or Atila were some of the dogs that they helped with all their contributions. If you want, you can remember the project HERE.

In this second occasions, they will collaborate with Amigos del Perro Foundation, an entity that develops different activities, from the collection of abandoned animals, until the reintegration of the same ones in new families through the adoption.

logo_whiteSometimes, when abandoned dogs are collected, they need a more specific environment than a cage, either because they are ill, are older, are a puppy, or need surgery after which they require monitoring and medication control. There are also animals that need socialization and education. In all these cases, a foster house is the solution.

Fosters houses are also very important in cases where the dog is already booked but it will take some time until it is collected. During this time, the dog is educated and socialized so that when he reaches his new family, the adaptation is easy and fast.

The new challenge of Mascoteros will be now ensure the maintenance and veterinary care in the Foster Home to abandoned dogs and promote their adoption.

capcelera_eng

In Kinshasa (the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo), the exclusion and lack of training prevent young people from emerging from poverty and marginalization.

It is a city in which more than 70% of population lives with less than 1 dollar/day. The continued armed conflicts and the lack of infrastructures difficult the access to basic services. As a consequence, many of young people live in the street, with no opportunities to access to education and, because of that, finding a job is very difficult.

After completing its last challenge to help Unicef vaccinate 8.000 children against polio in Nigeria (you can remember the project HERE), the users of Nicequest start now a new project in order to help these people.

y3ZoePlTWith the aim of improving social and economic situation of 40 young at risk of social exclusion, Nicequest users will make their micro-donation in order that Codespa Foundation will train and help them to find a job.

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.
