Helps local businesses and hospital staff during the pandemic
Location: Romania, Bucharest
“Our initiatives are destined to help and support the communities most affected by the new normal”
To help local businesses survive forced closure during the lockdown, Anca had an idea. She invited her Facebook community to purchase gift cards from these businesses, to be used as soon as they could reopen their doors. “In less than 24 hours the campaign was all over social media”, she says. "The online booking platform CardCadou decided to partner with us and the initiative now includes over 140 small businesses across Romania”. But Anca was still eager to find new ways of helping. She additionally developed a new platform called Coffee for Hospitals where people can buy coffee vouchers for hospital workers. “Thanks to #cafeapentruspitale, we have brought tons of quality coffee to hospitals in Bucharest and five other Romanian cities”, Anca told us. The reactions from doctors and nurses was so positive that coffee roaster The Barn Berlin decided to bring the initiative to Germany.
