Buying time

Ausonia company (brand that produces articles for women) has launched the “one package one minute to the breast cancer investigation” campaign. Ausonia, in cooperation with AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer) tries to contribute to the fight against breast cancer financing an investigation minute for each sold package.

Why it matters

Time equals money and is a more involved and personal way of donating to a charitable cause. Will time and resources become the new currency in corporate CSR?

Buy chocolate with a good deed

The Anthon Berg ‘Generous Store’ pop-up chocolate shop in Denmark does not allow for customers to pay for their product with cash or credit. In fact, customers need to promise they will do a good deed for a person they care for. The chocolate is ‘priced’ at different levels depending on how big a deed is needed to obtain it. These range from‘serve breakfast in bed to your loved one’ to ‘Don’t comment on your girlfriend’s driving for a week’. The most popular service was ‘Help clean your friend’s house’ whilst the least popular was ‘A week where you don’t lie to your father ’.
