Your donation is verified! What does this mean?
This means that CharityStars has a dedicated team specialized in fundraising and campaign management for the Non-Profit Sector. In the current state of emergency we believe it’s crucial to certify every single donation made. This is why we’re in constant contact with the organizations benefitting from these campaigns in order to ensure that all donations will be spent exactly as stated. To this end, complete certified documentation will be available on the CharityStars.com platform on campaign closing.
Donated to charity: 95% Why?
We’ve all been affected by this emergency and so we’ve decided to cut our usual service fee from 20 to 5%. The remaining 5% will cover costs of communication and shipping as well as the staff working on and supporting the campaign who are putting together a wide range of auctions and providing assistance with special needs and requests. As a company that has been at the forefront of fundraising since 2013, helping numerous non-profit organizations raise over 20 million euros and supporting over 1000 charitable causes worldwide, we will continue to help. #WeWin

The Cause

Today we want to lend our support to a fundraising campaign that intends to help the efforts of our heroic medical staff.  

Thanks to our long-term partners, companies and celebrities we've been able to launch the #VinciamoNoi (#WeWin) campaign to support 3 main objectives:

  1. finance the purchase of ventilators and breathing equipment;
  2. provide new beds in intensive and sub-intensive care;
  3. guarantee health care and rapid intervention of medical staff who find themselves on the front line.

This is why we've decided to combine our efforts with those of 3 major Italian companies whose commitment and dedication have made them stand out, particularly in recent weeks, and who are daily committed to dealing with the Corona Virus emergency: the Italian Red Cross, Luigi Sacco Hospital in Milan and Spallanzani Hospital in Rome (National Institute of Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani) and Policlinico San Matteo in Pavia.

Given the rapidity with which today's medical emergency is evolving and the changing needs, the funds raised through this campaign may need to be allocated differently by the beneficiary organizations. In this way the funding will go directly to the areas that need it most, whilst at the same time respecting the transparency and full traceability of the funds raised through this campaign to tackle the coronavirus emergency.

The Italian Red Cross has been at the forefront since the start of the Covid-19 emergency, providing aid including emergency assistance, medical, psychological and logistical support, informing, managing and screening as well as carrying out many other crucial activities in the battle against an epidemic that is bringing the country to its knees. In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the Italian Red Cross is managing the safe transport of patients to and from the relevant healthcare structures, through the use of special high-level bio-containment vehicles designed for health emergencies of this entity.

The Luigi Sacco Hospital in Milan is the reference center for the coordination of activities to fight Covid-19 in Northern Italy, a region in which the first Italian outbreaks were recorded and in which researchers have managed to isolate the Italian strain of coronavirus.

Spallanzani Hospital has been managing the Covid-19 emergency from the start, hosting the very first infected patients and isolating the virus. Today INMI researchers are working on the search for a vaccine while the medical staff focuses on caring for patients hospitalized at the facility. 

The IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo Foundation is responsible for emergency management, both through the analysis of swabs and care and assistance of all patients, whilst continuing to carry out research and healthcare activities.
