We celebrated the 2nd Worldcoo Volunteer Day!

Last Friday, we changed our computers and notebooks for paint brushes. In the context of Giving Tuesday  we wanted to spend, in a direct and personal manner, a morning together with those most in need for the second time.

We were with our colleagues fromObra Social Hospital San Juan de Dios, an entity with which we have collaborated several times. The objective was to participate in the rehabilitation of a flat, supervised by the same entity, where young people newly arrived to Spain live.

We spent a very different and productive morning in Sant Vicenç dels Horts (Barcelona). It was a good occasion to share a good time working as a team all together and, also, to know from first-hand the great job that Obra Social does with the management of insertion flats that promote autonomy and offer a home for young newcomers.

Following, some of the pictures from last Friday.

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!

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! 😉
