Each year we donate an amount of money to charity. We focus on Health, Environment and the Wellbeing of Young and Outcast. In each category, we support organisations who are operative within areas which are relevant to our every-day-mission in the Vagabond Group.
This year the Swedish week-long live radio and TV broadcast, with the mission to create awareness and raise money for humanitarian causes, is focusing on the right to be accepted and lead a good live, regardless of your individual abilities. We support this amazing initiative for the fourth time in a row and with EUR 11000.
During Black Friday Weekend 10% of net sales were given to We Effect, an organization focusing on helping people in exposed areas to build a better and independent life. This means 28 582 EUR focusing on the We Effect projects around the world.
For 2018 we donate a total of SEK 1 700 000. The main funds are dedicated Doctors without Borders, Children’s Villages (we sponsor a Children’s village in Cambodia for 2 years), WWF, Wateraid, The Swedish Cancer Society, The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation and BRIS (Children’s rights in society). For 2018 we also support Musikhjälpen and We Effect (Black Friday initiative).
Immediate support (December 2018): UNHCR and the Yemen catastrophe.
Other special projects: Ett Mjukare Varberg (September 2018)
