Worldcoo was founded at the end of 2012 with a clear aim to create a new fundraising channel in order to fund social and cooperation projects. To do that, we created a technology to allow online users to add 1€ or more to the final price of purchase to help make a difference in the world. In May 2013 we had our first project funded through donations received from more than 20 countries.
Two and a half years after, we are pleased to announce that 100.000 people have made a donation in one of our E-commerce with a Cause. We would like express our gratitude with a sincere — THANK YOU!
Thanks to all of you we have funded 34 projects that were intended to different purposes, the project are divided into 5 categories:
- Education: 6 funded projects related to education.
- Comprehensive care: with our donations 7 projects of this category have been funded.
- Environment: 2 projects have been funded to protect the environment or the animals that living in there.
- Health: thanks to add 1€ or more in your purchases, 6 projects destined for research, therapy and prevention of diseases have been funded.
- Poverty & Food: School lunchroom for kids living at risk of poverty, food banks or help for people living in malnutrition and dehydration situation, all of this projects, thanks to the 10 funded projects.
- Water & Energy: 2 funded projects.
- Emergencies: 1 funded project that help to provide first aid kits and drinking water to the people affected by the earthquake in Nepal.
Thanks to your solidarity, more than 63.000 people have been able to improve their lives but, there are still many people who need our help. Your help shows that together we can do big things, you have seen that with tiny gestures, every bit of help counts, for that reason, we must continue to fight to change the world.
Again THANK YOU, without your help none of this would be possible.
