Solinum, how digital tools can support social aid
Solinum is an association whose mission is to provide tools to solidarity actors. It offers a digital guide referencing social assistance places and services for people in precarious situations.
A digital platform where volunteers and employees from the Italian Red Cross are enabled to share best practices through peer-to-peer communication, develop a network, find innovative tools and opportunities to initiate new activities or better monitor and manage existing ones.
In 2019 the British Red Cross launched The Power of Ideas. It is an online platform where staff, volunteers (and in the future supporters) can share their ideas around how they can future proof the British Red Cross and even better serve staff, volunteers, service users and supporters.
Miles for Refugees is a virtual fundraising event which runs in September. When people register they have the choice of six distances, each related to a journey a refugee may have to take to reach safety. Participants can collect their miles by running, swimming, cycling or walking and have a fundraising target of £150.
