Soccer, music, cinema, fashion and magic. They all joined forces to help Specchio dei tempi. Once again, in times of difficulty, our community affirms to have a generous heart: the fundraising has reached over 350,000 €. Over 2000 people have donated in the last few days. the Coronavirus Emergency fund has now reach 350,000 €, anonymous donors have sent in checks for 100,000€. Companies and Foundation have also contributed with ten thousands euro donations, but what has touched us the most was the enormous amounts of small donations that go from 2€ upwards, that have arrived by the single donors. The way that the word has spread through the young generations that are supporting this project on the social media platforms is incredible. They are choosing to promote our initiative with their fan base and through the use of crowdfunding platforms with an incredible energy and enthusiasm. The amount of messages full of love and support for the doctors and nurses that have been shared on the social media is overwhelming. Professionals from different areas, that have always been close to Specchio dei tempi, are standing for our cause and helping us spreading the word and sending messages of encouragement to the entire country.
In the meantime we’ve concretely taken action by ordering from Diasorin two avantgarde machineries that are able to read the tampos and deliver the results in a very limited amount of time, this will allow to reduce the waiting timing during testing. We aim to deliver these to the Amedeo di Savoia Hospital in the next 48/76 hours. The medical district, La Città della Salute, of Turin has already received monitors and reanimation equipment that we’ve order. Just today we have donated to the Molinette Hospital 15 thermometers, 15 oximeters, 15 sphygmomanometers and 100 protective goggles.
Today, we’ll also start giving out shopping-bags with primary necessity goods to 500 elderly, and we’ll continue to hand out the sanitary kits for the schools that are part of the “Safe kids” project. The e-learning platforms of the #stayinschool project, in collaboration with the Agnelli Foundations and Reale Mutua, are up and running. This platform gives us the opportunity to both connect the teachers with their students, but also give 100 coupons for 100 hours of tutoring that can be managed by the institutes themselves.
