In this time of unprecedented health crisis, Solidari’Terre presents 3 solidarity initiatives per week to help those in need.
For this fifth edition, Solidari’Terre is partnering with the association Cheer Up! emlyon to introduce you to Solidhair.
Cheer Up! emlyon is a student association that supports young people between the age of 15 and 25 with cancer in the implementation of personal projects.
Solidhair is an association that aims to collect strands of hair and then sell it to wig makers. So don’t wait for the hair salons to reopen to decide to cut your hair for a good cause!
With the money raised Solidhair participates financially in the purchase of hair prostheses for people with cancer and in financial difficulties all over France, in order to offer them a little more dignity. Social security assistance does not necessarily allow you to obtain the desired prosthesis.
Hair strands can be shipped directly in a single envelope to:
20 rue Longchamps,
Beware, only natural hair strands of 25 cm or more are accepted!
Visit http://association-solidhair.fr/faire-un-don/ and learn how to donate hair for people with cancer.
The site tousbenevoles.org includes many remote volunteer missions allowing you to act despite the containment.
Searching for partners, market research, communication via social networks or training of isolated people, the needs of associations are multiple.
The platform brings together offers that are equally different from each other that will use your specific skills, all over France.
Even if time passes quickly, there is always time to volunteer remotely! Visit https://www.tousbenevoles.org/covid-19-engagez-vous to respond to any ad that fits into the field of your skills.
Voisins Solidaires is an association that works for mutual aid between neighbours.
From 11 May, schools will reopen on a voluntary basis but many parents will be forced to return to work. More than ever, neighbourhood is an essential resource to help families who do not want to run the risk of putting their children back to school.
To help the French mobilize, the association offers you a free kit “Coronavirus: what if we organized between neighbors?” which aims to help the inhabitants to organize mutual aid.
A mini guide to coronavirus advice, developed by health professionals, completes this device.
Become supportive neighbors by downloading the kit right here:
