AWWG, global fashion group, and Mastercard collaborate with the Spanish Red Cross to offer psychosocial support to those who have suffered the most during the pandemic. Through this initiative, customers of Pepe Jeans London stores will be able to aid people affected by the health crisis, especially the most vulnerable.

Thus, Pepe Jeans London stores in Spain become the first to carry out this initiative, soon to be followed in other markets such as Portugal, Germany, and France. Through our innovative donation mechanism, in which on this occasion we have used Adyen Giving’s technological solution,  Pepe Jeans London clients will be able to make a micro-donation to charity when paying by card.

This innovative donation system is simple, secure, and completely transparent for customers and stores: donations operate as a different transaction from purchases and will go directly to the Spanish Red Cross.

Coping with the pandemic

Aiming to cope with the effects of the pandemic between all, the global fashion group AWWG will be the first to activate this donation method. When paying by card, their customers will be offered three donation options: 0,5€, 1€, and 2€. 100% of every contribution will go to the Spanish Red Cross.

All We Wear Group will be joined by the technology multinational Mastercard in this effort. Both companies will contribute to the fundraising campaign by matching every donation received until doubling the initial budget of 10.000€.

The funds collected will go to the project “Cruz Roja te Escucha,” whose objective is to offer psychosocial support to the following:

  • Those who, due to their circumstances of illness, loneliness, advanced age, loss of employment, functional diversity, or homelessness, among others, are most affected by the pandemic.
  • Relatives and friends of acutely ill patients or victims who died from the disease caused by COVID-19, and to those hospitalized or isolated at home with severe symptoms.
  • Volunteers and workers of the Red Cross, who are carrying out humanitarian work.

Workers and volunteers of the Red Cross, who are specialists in psychosocial support and accompaniment, will provide this service. Regarding the most complex cases or situations, they will be aided by psychology professionals of the Organization who specialize in different areas of psychological care.

Charity Rounding Up in favour of Vicente Ferrer Foundation

capcelera_bp

bpThis August, the customers of Bonpreu i Esclat Supermarket can round up the total amount of their purchase and donate the cents to Vicente Ferrer Foundation.

fvfMany families of the most poorest comunities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (in the South of India) live in precarious houses that don’t have the minimum living or hygiene conditions. They also don’t have letrines or a space for their personal hygiene, which forces them to do their physical needs outdoors, with very negative consequences on health and safe. The population lives exposed to the inclement weather, from the monsoon rains to the intense heat that punishes the area and forces them to rebuild them permanently as well as the bites of dangerous animals such as snakes and scorpions.

Having a solid home in conditions of hygiene and safety is an essential requirement to achieve good social integration. For this reason, the money raised during August thanks to the Bonpreu i Esclat Charity Rounding Up will be used to build 20 homes in conditions of health and hygiene for the most disadvantaged families in Chandrapalli.
