• In Madrid, on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 December
With the slogan “We are looking for solidarity superheroes”, Fundación MAPFRE has organized its Solidarity Market, which, for its sixth consecutive year, is being held in Madrid with the goal of helping vulnerable people and those most at risk of social exclusion.
This year the funds raised will go to the Association of People with Alzheimer’s and their Family Members (Avila) and to the “Casa maternal”, program which the Acogida Foundation (Madrid) promotes in order to support pregnant women and single mothers without resources.
The market will take place in the Shopping mall Moda Shopping, on 14 and 15 December and will include more than 20 associations and NGOs, such as the Talismán Association, Colores de Calcuta, Manos Unidas and the Bobath Foundation, which will be selling their products for social causes.
At the market, which will be joined by over 50 volunteers from Fundación MAPFRE, numerous fun activities will be held for young children, such as magic workshops, which will be carried out by the Abracadabra Foundation, country dancing classes; a workshop to teach children about science, by Apadrina la Ciencia; face painting, from the Guerreros Púrpura Association; and initiatives to promote healthy eating, which will be carried out by Fundación MAPFRE.
Adults will also enjoy musical performances, a gourmet area and home made cakes and sweets to raise money for social causes.
