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.

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.

Emergency campaign: Chile forest fires

Support campaign for people affected by fires in Chile

As you may know, since last month of January, Chile is experiencing the worst wave of forest fires in its history with red alert in the regions of Coquimbo, Valparaíso, Metropolitana, O’Higgins, Maule and Biobío. It is estimated that the fire has devastated about 362.000 hectares in 119 incidents, leaving 11 fatalities and more than 2.800 victims.

In front of this situation, we have started a new fundraising campaign with Telefonica Foundation. The objective is to raise the necessary funds so that the company employees can move to the regions affected by the catastrophe – Hualqui, San Nicolás y Portezuela- and participate in different projects of solidarity and reconstruction of the devastated areas once the emergency has been overcome and the hard reality of zero zone appears. They will do it through Telefonica Corporate Volunteering Program.

 If you want to make your own donation, you can do it through the online platform that we have prepared telefonica.worldcoo.com.

So far, we have raised more than €3.500!
