Support and share

You don’t have any idea or you don’t have time to launch your solidarity kitty? You can still join the movement:

  • Make a donation to support the commitment of a project organizer.
  • Share on social networks, to help the chain of altruism in action grow.

All donations are tax-deductible up to 66% of the value of the donation.

When altruists join forces, they can generate a tremendous power for good (…) Everyone can mobilize in his or her own way and cultivate an altruistic state of mind to become a link in the immense chain of solidarity that transcends borders, castes, genders and religions.
