You know AVOI?
AVOI is an association of volunteers of Málaga who for 21 years have helped children hospitalized in Oncology, to make their stay as pleasant as possible. They have games and group activities such as craft workshops, table games, computer, etc… so that the children can have a good time while learning.
At Mi Colchón, we cooperate with them to reach maximum number of possible volunteers and partners. To do, so we decided to launch this campaign at the beginning of July of 2014.
The goal was to collect 0.7% from all our sales of viscoelastic mattresses during the month of July, but after the great repercussions and participation of our clients, we decided to expand to provide more help to our Association of Volunteers AVOI of Málaga.
Three objectives accompany this action:
•We want to MAKE people AWARE of the great work of this Association.
•MAKE THEM KNOWN to obtain the most partners possible
•HELP them economically to be able to continue developing all their activities with hospitalized children.
We are happy to report that WE OBTAINED more than 2,000 SMILES, collecting a total of 2,028€.
Furthermore, we ended our campaign Friday August 29 at 11:00 a.m. with a formal check issuance at the AVOI store, with present Juan Carmona, Director of the AVOI Association, Ángel Idígoras, a cartoonist for the Diario SUR, El Mundo and Jueves and Ruth Sarabia García, General Manager of the areas of Social Rights and Citizen Participation, Immigration and Cooperation in Development.
We want to thank all the media that dissemination this news, everyone who participated in this campaign but especially our clients. THANKS for your support.

At Mi Colchón we are conscious of and sensitive to all of the patients, and we closely followed the special cases of children who need more intensive care. We wanted to help two wonderful girls to be able to rest well. These girls are Carmen and Luz Rocío, and both are fighting to overcome their illness with great hope and enthusiasm.
Here are their Facebook pages so you can share their battle.
