From 1st February 2018 till 31st August 2018 we collect for Team Margot Foundation
Did you know that over 37,000 people worldwide need a bone marrow transplant? But first, they must find a matching donor – someone with the same tissue type.
Team Margot Foundation wants to encourage people worldwide to register as potential bone narrow / stem cell donors. Their aim is to facilitate this process and make it as quick as possible to save the lives of all those people who need this desperately. With more and more people joining worldwide, more patients are likely to find a matching donor! To find out how quick and easy it is to register, please click here.
As a European brand, Famous Hostels couldn’t just be aware of this cause and not get involved! Present in 23 countries, Famous Hostels is a great way to involve people from all over Europe and create awareness for this specific cause.
You can find in our Reception Area Team Margot’s merchandising to purchase while donating some money for the cause – ask our staff members for wristbands or postcards of Team Margot’s.
So, what are you waiting for? There are currently almost 80 stem cell registries in over 50 countries. Click here to find out how you can join the bone marrow/ stem cell register in your home country.
Join Team Margot Foundation and help spread the word to save more lives! For more info about the Foundation and for further details, please click here.
From 1st of January till 1st of July 2017 we collect for SOS children’s village
SOS Children’s Villages: We work to prevent family breakdown and care for children who have lost parental care, or who risk losing it. We work with communities, partners and states to ensure that the rights of all children, in every society, are respected and fulfilled. We are non-governmental and non-denominational. We respect all religions and cultures and work with trusted partners in places where we can contribute to social development. All the work we do is made possible through the generous support of sponsors and donors, institutional and corporate partners, and loyal friends worldwide. Your help is needed too. SOS Children’s Villages has responded to the needs of children, young people and families in three locations in Hungary. The social centres work with the local communities and agencies to support children and their families so that the children can grow up within a caring family environment. When children can no longer live with their families, SOS mothers can care for them in loving homes. SOS Children’s Villages also provides support and semi-independent housing for young people. In response to the refugee crisis of 2015, SOS Children’s Villages is planning to support refugees in Budapest, and the southern and western parts of the country. We plan to assist families with children, and children arriving without an adult carer. Our help will vary depending on what the refugees need but it is likely to include the provision of shelter, food and health care.
