mascoteros_900They are Mascoteros, the first Spanish marketplace related to the world of pets.  If you didn’t know them you will now have opportunity to do it, because they just have joined to Worldcoo community with their new initiative #MascoterosCommitment.

Though this new initiative, they will offer their customers the opportunity to add done, two or five euros to each purchase they do and contribute to the defense of animal rights, one of its main commitments.

When Conan arrived at the Foundation, more than 10 years ago, he had clear signs of neglect and he was quite thin. After different therapies, Conan is now a loving and obedient dog, fully prepared to find a new home.

The total amount collected by Mascoteros users will go to “Great animals for great people” program, and with it, the Foundation will  guarantee the life support and veterinary care of Conan and three other older dogs found. Something that will undoubtedly promote its adoption.

Demis Torres, CEO of Mascoteros tells us that “the agreement with Worldcoo allows us to take a step forward in the defense and promotion of animal rights. There are many entities that today do not have the necessary resources to ensure the maintenance and veterinary treatment of the animals they welcome and we are so happy to be able to contribute through our community and in the long term.

The project was launched this morning and the donations were not long in coming! If you want, you can follow the donation process live HERE.

International Day of the Girl

Today, October 11th, we join the celebration of the International Day of the Girl, a day to claim gender equality, women’s Access to their universal right and eliminate discrimination and violence against women. According to ONU Women, it is estimated that 35% of women worldwide   suffer violence and every day more than 39.000 girls are forced to get married and leave school

because-im-a-girlLuckily, there are thousands of initiatives that help to eradicate this situation. One of them is the one we launched in the context of this day with Nicequest.Because I’m a Girl” is the name of the campaign led by the NGO Plan International, founded with the aim of achieve gender equality and their empowerment through education.

We want to achieve that 140 girls affected by the conflict in Southern Sudan, -most of them teenagers with kids between 12 and 18 years old- have access to alternative quality education in a safe and socially cohesive environment.

Through the participation of the users of Nicequest, these girls will able to do a course of accelerated learning and facilitate their stay through the distribution of different hygiene kits and taking care of their children in a nearby nursery. You can follow the project HERE.

Moreover, in the context of this day, Plan International has presented “Counting the invisible girls”, “a report that, according to the NGO, “explores the current state of gender data and exposes the gaps: we don’t count how many girls leave school because of early marriage, pregnancy or violence, exactly how many give birth before they turn 15, how many hours a day they spend working, what kind of work they do and whether they get paid for it”.

From here, we encourage you to join this day and help us to ensure girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive.
