Fight against Covid-19: over €1.2 million collected
The global health crisis caused by Covid-19 is creating great momentum for solidarity. More than ever, the KissKissBankBank team has taken its mission to heart: to coach project creators committed in the fight against coronavirus to lead them towards the success of their project.
Restaurants in difficulty, committed artists, companies or seamstresses converted into mask makers, hospitals in need of resources, supportive citizens... Together, we show that we are stronger than anything!
Health remains one of the main causes supported by KissKissBankBank. In the context of the health crisis, our platform was therefore keen to participate in the collective effort. How? By reducing its commission on projects related to the fight against Covid-19.
Some inspiring projects, committed to people with disabilities
Increasing the autonomy of people in wheelchairs
Wheeliz: the first site for private rentals of cars adapted for people in wheelchairs. It was co-founded by Charlotte de Vilmorin. The idea came to her in the summer of 2014, when she had to go to a wedding in a wheelchair a few kilometres from Marseille. Arriving from Paris by train, there was no bus or taxi available to welcome her in a wheelchair to get to the place of the ceremony. She then had to give up! A few months later, she launched a crowdfunding campaign on KissKissBankBank to create a site for car rentals between individuals.
The start-up raised €20,670 from a community of 361 citizens.
Autism: a school for all
700,000 children in France today suffer from autism and barely 20% are enrolled in school due to lack of resources. Following the closure of the structure in which they worked, the Althéas team decided to found its own school for children with autism.
The association collected €27,820 from 191 backers.
"Dites-le en langue des signes", the game!
A game combining a playing card and a mobile application to learn sign language and thus facilitate the creation of links between hearing and deaf people. This project is supported by the Lille association Signes de sens.
This inclusive game raised €9,800 from 308 citizens.
Committed partners at our side
"L'atout citoyen" with La Banque Postale Assurances
In February 2019, La Banque Postale Assurances IARD set up the "L'Atout Citoyen" operation. The aim of this initiative? To finance innovative and solidarity-based projects in favour of the inclusion of people with disabilities. Three times a year, La Banque Postale customers, civil servants and/or employees of La Poste Group choose the project they wish to support on KissKissBankBank. In 2019, La Banque Postale Assurances has notably participated in the collection of 33,333 euros from the restaurant Le Reflet, promoting the inclusion of people with trisomy 21.
"Les coups de cœur" of La Banque Postale
Every month, La Banque Postale chooses two civism-based projects that are being financed by KissKissBankBank, which it proposes to its community. On social networks, its customers then choose their favourite project of the month. They then receive a donation from La Banque Postale equivalent to 50% of their fundraising campaign target. In recent years, this community of citizens has shown a strong interest in projects committed to illness, health or disability. 57,000 has been given to 11 solidarity projects: creation of a games console for the disabled, improving the children's Christmas at the hospital, opening a basketball school for children in wheelchairs, and so on.
KissKissBankBank has been a partner of the HandiTech Trophy for two years. This event rewards innovative companies, associations, research laboratories or students who are committed to developing technologies that aim to make disabled people more autonomous. We are very proud to affirm our commitment to them.
