This week we say goodbye to our friends from Maldita.es a challenge for fighting against misinformation: more than 1,400 people have decided to support their campaign, and they have already raised more than €63,000. You still have 3 days to add your “drop” and show your support #FundaMaldita and help them to reach the optimum, or as one of Maldita's co-financiers tells us: Do you want to continue living in a world based on misinformation?
On the other hand, we also finished January participating in different events: the II Meeting on Financing and Social Economy - New funding formulas for the SE in Madrid and two others, organized by Goteo Foundation in Oviedo and Gijón. In Oviedo, we had the opportunity to enjoy five rural projects from Asturias, that have been funded through our platform, a very interesting event, with the opportunity to count with the testimonies of its promoters; in Gijón, we celebrate our #Fundlab - Asturias where we discussed the growth of proposals thanks to crowdfunding and matchfunding. The discussion was joined by promoters, social investors, public and private entities focused on supporting social innovation as an engine of territorial development.
But we do not have time to get nostalgic for what we left behind ...! We are starting a new month full of interesting news, such as the launching of the third edition of Participa Sevilla, which for the second consecutive year, will distribute part of their salary surplus, among projects that contribute to the social transformation of Seville.
During the two previous calls, we have witnessed new initiatives being created and the success of those previously launched, all of them with a focus on improving the people’s lives who live the streets and the colleges of Sevilla, as well as the theaters, radios and its roofs.
We hope the same will happen during this call! The 6 projects candidates to receive a part of the €10,000 donated by Participa Sevilla, are already in campaign and waiting to receive also your support!
On February 22 we will know the most-voted projects, that will be selected to receive the donation from Participa Sevilla. Good luck to the six projects!
