Hello dear Changemakers!

How about recycling for a very good social purpose?

This is a long-term activity to be concluded in January because we need time to collect the material.

The National Institute Fernandes Figueiras is a children's hospital linked to the Instituto Fiocruz and cares of children with all kinds of serious illnesses, including microcephaly and cerebral palsy. They collect metal caps (seals- not to be confused with plastic caps) from soda cans and beer to change for wheelchairs. The wheelchairs are donated to the children assisted by the institut.

The link of the IFF is Protected content and the contact person is the physiotherapist Miriam Calheiros. A member from our Changemakers group kindly linked us to this amazing project. Thank you Vera Pepe!

What::: collection of metal soda/beer caps
When::: To be delivered on the 31st January 17:00h
Where::: Botafogo Metro Station. I will collect the caps and care about the deliver at IFF.

***How about having a coffee at De Panneur afterwards?

Hope to see you all there!
