Give a day, is a philanthropic movement that was born in Belgium and is now introduced in Luxembourg by the organization Damos Luxembourg asbl. We want to spread the wave of solidarity throughout entire Europe.
Give a Day seeks to strengthen the associative movement and the voluntary movement as a driving force and voice of civil society. We want to better meet the main needs of associations.
We seek to connect, associate and encourage all actors in society to meet social and ecological challenges together, through integrated technology around volunteering and associations.
The aim is to create strong partnerships based on solidarity and common values and visions at local level to face social and environmental challenges.
To create a community of happy changemakers who together build a sustainable and supportive future.
A world in which the actors of society work hand in hand on solidarity and local projects to face today's social and environmental challenges. Guided by the Sustainable Development Goals, we aspire to a more sustainable world where people live in well-being and in balance with their environment.
Promote citizen engagement by facilitating the rapprochement of all actors through our platform for connecting volunteers and associations and support all actors by providing digital solutions. We want to encourage all actors in society, to spread solidarity through volunteering and solve social and ecological challenges through local impact ecosystems.
Use current technologies and digital solutions to develop new forms of mutual aid and solidarity, to encourage the interaction between those who want to act and associations. We want to transmit the importance of the United Nations 2030 Agenda in the fight against socio-economic challenges.
We provide municipalities, schools, citizens and non-profits with the right IT tools, such as the website for corona & neighbourhood aid called www.impactdays.co, www.giveaday.be or www.giveaday.lu with the smart volunteer matcher and volunteer manager for automation of volunteer administration. We do this to match volunteers & other actors in a smart way, to provide policy support around community-oriented care or volunteering, to provide methodologies and to give qualitative modern training.
The idea of Give a Day was born in Calais between several volunteers who wanted to improve the organization of volunteering and facilitating the link and communication between volunteers and associations. Originally, we started in 2015 as a non-profit organization. We then merged with our French-speaking counterpart TwoDays asbl in order to professionalize our activities and in September 2018 we decided together to create a social cooperative. More than 150 volunteers were gathered ready to spread solidarity around the world.
Yesterday we were only active in Flanders, today everywhere in Belgium and tomorrow internationally. In 3 years we have become, thanks to our partners, the largest database of solidarity actions and volunteers in Belgium and today together with Damos Luxembourg we want to spread the wave of solidarity in Luxembourg and tomorrow throughout Europe. Our solidarity recipe for partnership and co-creation for a warmer society works!
Give a Day in Belgium is a cooperative with a social purpose. This means that we do not distribute dividends, but nevertheless develop an economic activity. In Luxembourg is Give a day represented by the organization Damos Luxembourg asbl
