Worldcoo’s Anual Report 2021

A journey through our last year

Here you have our Anual Report 2021, a year in which we have doubled the number of donations made compared to the previous year. The sum of all these small micro-donations made in different shops has raised more than 4 million euros, which will help fund 116 different social and environmental projects around the world.

We are very happy to have been able to offer help to various social causes that have needed it this year, marked by the consequences of the Covid pandemic. And also to have been able to offer immediate help to people affected by other climate emergencies that have occurred in recent months, such as the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma, or the floods that took place in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

This 2021 has also been very special because we have made the leap to Andorra, with the help of Univers Bomosa. And we have presented the first fundraising campaign in the Principality with the help of one of the leading telecommunications companies in the count.

We explain you everything in OUR ANUAL REPORT.

Honor the Amazon!

We start a new fundraising campaign to honor the Amazon! 

capcelera_amazonas

The Amazon is considered the lung of the world, being the largest extension of jungle vegetation that exists on our planet. The uncontrolled fires that are occurring now there affect to all of us.

For this reason, today we start a new campaign with the objective of counteracting the adverse effects that we must face.

We cannot go there to reforest what we have lost, but we can do it from here, in honor of the Amazon.

Through this campaign, some of the ecommerce that collaborate with us, such as Zacaris, Percentil, Uvinum,  Planeta Huerto, Santa Fixie or Italia Tren will have the option to offer their customers the option to add €1 to their purchase and collaborate in favor of environment.

logos_publica

logo fiebAll the funds raised will be destinated to The Foundation for Research in Ethology and Biodiversity (FIEB) in order to reforest the some forests in Spain (Toledo), as compensation to the affected areas in the Amazon.

The objective is to increase the uptake of CO2 on the planet, mitigate the effects of climate change and raise awareness about the importance of caring or the environment and the benefits of planting a tree.

One million micro-donations that have helped to implement nearly 200 social and cooperation projects around the world. And what is more important, more than 163.000 people have benefited directly through any of these initiatives.

numbers

From our beginnings, our main objective has been to help NGOs to find the economic funds needed to carry out their projects. Day to day, we have worked constantly in order to develop new and better tools available to companies that favor micro-donations around the world.

Today we are more than satisfied to see that step by step, our goal has become a reality and our constant commitment to innovation and the development to new technologies has made that our ambition don’t stop growing. As you may know, this achievement coincides with the launching and implementation of the “Social Round Up”, our new fundraising channel which is already live.

UNICEF, Save the Children, Plan International, Bombay Smiles UNHCR or Educo are some of the entities we collaborate with. With them, we have fight against child malnutrition, share smiles to sick children, investigate the cure of childhood leukemia, facilitate the Access to drinking water in countries such as Peru or Kenya, find a home for abandoned dogs or promote access to education in India, among many other.

For this, we count on an extensive network of “companies with cause” (more than 50 already!) that have offered their customers and employees the possibility of making a micro-donation.

To all of them, thank you very much for collaborating with us as a social partner!

How your company (and your customers) can be socially responsible

CAPCELERA_SOCIAL

check-mark-1292787_960_720A recent study (Brands with values: the power of the consmer-citizen), confirms that almost 80% of population prefers brands with more social values, rather than companies with the best price or quality. From some years ago, the increasing products and services and the facility in which people can access to information, has made that there’s a change in consumer’s behaviour.

In front of this scenario, those brands with values have more protagonism than never before. In fact, the results of the studies show that “nearly 60% of people will choose a brand which takes cares of environment, social aspects or their employees”.

There’s a lot of options in order to show our social commitment. In Worldcoo, we offer companies the possibility that their customers employees or society in general can make their own micro-contribution through the brand itself. To do this, we put within reach of all of them (on and off line businesses, companies and banking entities), different FUNDRAISING CHANNELS:

Canals_captació

  • widget_fonstransparent_ENG_verdOnline payment platforms: It’s our most famous channel. eCommerce companies can incorporate our widget in their payment system and invite their customers to add a micro-donation to their purchase in order to collaborate with a social cause. Today, more than 40 eCommerce already have our widget.
  • eBanking: At the same time the users of different banking entities have access to their banking operations, they can make their micro-contribution (also from its own telephone). It is a huge opportunity to take advantage of the moment and donate from any place and time.
  •  Social corporates platforms: Companies promote the social collaboration of all their employees throught different kind of campaigns; for example, the donation of €1 from their salary each month or the launching of emergency campaigns when natural disasters occur.
  • salut_anglesSocial round up: It is our latest lauchment. When we pay with credit card in a comercial establishment, we will have the option to round up our purchase and donate the cents to a social cause. It is a method that already works in countries such as France, Germany or United Kingdom, collecting more than €1M each one.

Our 2016 – annual year-end report

We present you our annual year-end report. A year in which we have received 100% more donations than last year. This increase has been possible thanks to more than 113.000 people who have done their micro donation at the same time they were buying a product or service in one of the e-commerce with cause that we work with.

worldcoo_2016

The funds received have allowed that 41 different NGO will implement more than 50 social projects in 26 different countries. The money will be addressed to 8 different kind of projects, such as the emergency campaigns, which represents a 35% of the projects.

More than 110.0000€ have gone to addressing the needs of refugees crossing the Mediterranean or fleeing from conflicts in Africa and people who have suffered the consequences of natural disasters, like those in Ecuador and Haiti, this means a growth in donations of 190%.

Education projects, the second on the list, have focused on ensuring education for children, young people and women in conflict zones in Asia and Africa. Unlike the previous year, the healthcare projects focused mainly on research and care for sick children in Spain, receiving 334% more donations. On the other hand, most of the food projects went to fighting childhood malnourishment in Africa, mainly, and to helping at-risk families in Spain.

These are our main results of 2016, a year in which we have achieved a capital increase of 2.3 million euros from European and private funds. Moreover, in 2016 we have launched a new raising channel that allows customers and employees of big corporations, to make donations and it has consolidated in the online banking sector. An example is the alliance we signed together with Banco Sabadell. With a team of 12 people – 5 more than the previous year – our goal for this 2017 is to triplicate the number of donations received and implement a new and revolutionary fundraising channel.
