cabecera_educo

The customers of PcComponentes can add one euro and collaborate with Educo

logo_pccompAfter collaborating with Pupaclown and Fundación Theodora in order to share smiles between hospitalized children (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of PcComponentes start a new project today.

Since the beginning of the economic crisis in Spain, the number of children at risk of poverty or social exclusion has been increasing. Today more than 2.6 million children – that represents one in every three- are in this situation. Malnutrition is one of the direct consequences of this situation and it is estimated that more than 260,000 children cannot afford to eat meat, fish or chicken twice a week.

LOGO-EDUCO-CHILDFUNDNow, when buying at PcComponentes it is possible to add €1 to the shopping basket and collaborate with Educo in order that kids at risk of social exclusion or poverty can receive a daily meal in their school during one year.

Thanks to the amount raised through PcComponentes, 1,200 meals can be provided, which means that 8 children will be able to eat daily in their school canteen throughout the course.

As usual, we remind you that you can follow the donation process HERE.

Sports grants for children with cancer

Unfortunately, 1,400 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed each year.

The practice of physical exercise helps children with cancer to be more tolerant to treatments and helps to alleviate the side effects of these. It increases the muscular strength of children, decreases the systematic inflammatory levels and improves the immune function, reducing fatigue.

aladina_noticiaThat is why the Aladina Foundation has launched the Aladina Sports Scholarships for children with cancer and families. Through this initiative, the entity can favor specialized physical exercise therapies for children and adolescents with cancer.

logo-sprinterAfter collecting the necessary amount so that 20 students can participate in activities where Ayuda en Acción promotes gender equality and opportunities (you can remember the project HERE), now Sprinter customers start a new project to promote the practice of physical exercise between children and adolescents.

Thanks to the contribution of Sprinter, 10 children with cancer will be able to participate in these specialized physical therapy therapies for a month.

The total amount collected will go entirely to the entity, who can perform specialized physical therapy therapies for a month.

Remember that, if you want, you can get more information and know in which state this project is found HERE.

The company collaborates with the fight against this disease in Africa

Coinciding with the International AIDS day, the social cause that Ticketmaster supports this December is the fight against AIDS, a disease that, unfortunately, is still very stigmatized and affects more than 35 million people all over the world.

logo_enThe Fight AIDS Foundation and the Carmelo Hospital have started a new program called “Phambene!” (which means “go ahead”) in Xhosa in order to fight, in a long term and in a sustainable and respectful way, the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa.

The objective is to train doctors and laboratory personnel at the Carmelo Hospital and implement the laboratory technology required for the diagnosis of HIV. In parallel, the project will be used to obtain data on the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Mozambique and will be useful for the design of public health policies.

How can I collaborate?

Do you plan to buy a ticket for a concert, theater or sporting event in the coming days? If you do it through Ticketmaster, when you pay for the purchase you have made, you will have the opportunity to add a solidary euro to your basket and collaborate with the Fight AIDS Foundation.

We remind you that you can follow the donation process and have more information about the campaign through this link.
