¡Today is #GivingTuesday! A global day of giving

cabecera

To celebrate it, all Worldcoo’s employees have spent the morning with Assís Foundation.

Today is a special day. This morning, we haven’t worked in the offices. For the first time, we have dedicated part of our workday to help those who need the most directly and personally, without a computer screen in front of us.

During more than four hours, we have collaborated with Assis Foundation in the cleaning, adaptation and maintenance of a space for gardening workshop organized by the entity in order to facilitate the access to the working market for homeless people.

In collaboration with 15 more users from the centre, we have collaborated so that the entity can develop the “Workshop of gardening, urban orchards and composting”; A training course that is part of the “Assis Verd” project and which acts as a motivational and training tool for the socio-labor insertion of people at risk of vulnerability.

This has been our way of celebrating #GivingTuesday, an international movement that was born as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season. #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to donate, share, help and act.

Collaborate and help Assís Foundation has allowed us to know firsthand one of the causes we work for 365 days a year, which is to help eradicate poverty. In addition, it has helped us to value the work of local organizations in our immediate environment.

Worldcoo’s employees join Giving Tuesday

Next November 29, Worldcoo’s employees will join to the celebration of #Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to help others through the gift of our time, donations, goods or voice.

We join this movement in Spain last year, we help to fund more than 400.000 euros for 260 causes. This year, again, we want to overcome this number through the participation of all our ecommerce partners, but also with all of us. For this reason, all the Worldcoo’s employees will dedicate part of our workday to collaborate with ASSÍS Centre d’Acollida, an organization that wants to improve life quality of homeless.

descargaEvery day, they help more than 150 people through their basic services (breakfasts, clothes and showers). But they also implement different kind of initiatives aimed to sensitize, take care of health and hygiene and help to find a job with different educational courses.  One of them is the gardening workshop that they organize to motivate and help people without home and risk of social exclusion to find a job.

In concrete, we will help them in cleaning, adequacy and maintenance the area where they do this workshop in order to facilitate the realization of this service.

We will do it during next November 29, a global day of giving fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration. (Learn more about it HERE).

So that’s why we encourage you to join this cause and share it through your social networks with the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Through next days, we will tell you all the other initiatives that we will implement with all our e-commerce partners, so stay tuned! 😉

Giving Tuesday: the day dedicated to solidarity has come

Many of you have heard about Black Friday or Cyber Monday, two days in which actual stores or stores online give high discounts because of this time marks the beginning of Christmas shopping. Today we are going to talk about Giving Tuesday, a movement that was created in 2012 as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that wants to encourage and multiply the good deeds of people. The aim of this movement is to spend one day of celebrating the solidarity of the people in all the world. With the hashtag #GivingTuesday we want to encourage people to make a donation like food, money, time (be a volunteer) or giving lightly used objects.

To celebrate Giving Tuesday, you can collaborate with an existing project by giving a donation, you can create your own fundraising campaign or you can propose a cause for this global day. In the official webpage of #GivingTuesday you can find different ideas for this day, different solidarity initiatives and the different projects that have been created for this date.

Giving Tuesday

As a committed company, we want to collaborate with Giving Tuesday global movement and we are going to make different actions:

First of all, we have designed our “Giving Tuesday Widget”. On December 1st this widget will appear in all of our e-commerce with a cause like Dreivip, Uvinum, Mequedouno or Promofarma, to promote the donations on this day.

At the moment, some of our e-commerce of a cause have confirmed that they will join the #GivingTuesday movement. These e-commerce are Dreivip, Mequedouno, Uvinum, Promofarma and LetsBonus.

Finally, coincidentally with the Day of Giving Tuesday, we launch our Christmas Campaign. This campaign consists in the draw of a “Solidarity basket” filled with donated products by our e-commerce of a cause. To participate in the draw, you have only to pay 2, 5 or 10€ that will go entirely to the project “Personalitats” of the NGO Pallapupas. Worldcoo also will make a donation to make the project possible. The days before December 1st, we will write a post about our Christmas campaign.

Like us and our e-commerce with a cause, join with GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that will take place this year on December 1st.
