Margins and Links Foundation winner of the Common Space Contest
Once the deadline set for voting for the Common Space contest ended we are pleased to report that the winner is the Margins and Links Foundation receiving 23.91% of the votes. A total of 19 organisms were proposed and finally there were 7 which met the necessary requirement to enter the last stage of voting. The results were quite close, with there only being one point difference between the first and second-place projects, Autism Seville, and just two points difference with the third-place project, Stop San Filippo. Here are the final voting results:
The work carried out by the Foundation is aimed at social assistance, aimed at people who are in vulnerable situation or socially excluded, specifically minors, especially those who have been abandoned or abused, handicapped people, battered women, immigrant mothers or incarcerated women. Margins and Link stimulate cultural activities in all facets which strengthen the development of people and individuals, promotes international help and cooperation for social and cultural purposes.
The quantity donated to the Margins and Links Foundation is 6,131.44 € which corresponds from the amount donated by our coffee supplier (based on units consumed in the Alestis work centres) to which the same amount 6,131.44 € was added by Alestis. The final donation added up to 12.262,88 €. Common Space originated in Alestis as an initiative with the goal of reinforcing company and employee commitment with the social surroundings we live in, counting on everyone’s participation, both in the proposal phase of candidates as in the voting for the selection of the winning candidate. At this point we would like to thank all of the employees for their participation who, with the presentation of their proposals have allowed us to see their implication and the social labor of these entities they collaborate with; and in the same way, to thank all those that have dedicated part of their time and who participated actively in the voting phase.
