This is the reality. The society we live in has seen better days. Today, we all feel closely the reflections of a declining economy and the consequences that this brought to the society. Low purchasing power, low capacity for sustainability of families and hence arise questions that reflect the community in which we live. The aim of providing quality of life of the family took him out on the basis of the need to survive as a family, in many cases. The aim of providing quality of life of the family is subtracted as a function of the need to survive as a family, in many cases.
However, it is in the most troubled times that man reveals his true strength: the ability to help. The contribution of each person has a direct impact on the life of another, regardless of the context. It is in this scope that arise our goals. Ponto Vermelho has taken since its creation, a commitment to solidarity, help and assistance.
Our shop stands out as a component of solidarity by selling goods at prices which allow for greater purchasing power for people and their families, but not only ...
more is revealed behind the curtain. A team of volunteers is helping with the selection of the best articles to give people the chance to have quality at a good price. In addition, we provide families the opportunity to purchase sets of clothing through their own requests. Another part of the clothing is donated to selected charities, and the remaining clothing is delivered to a recycling company that, in the same line selection, deals with the recycling of clothes in bad state and sends the clothes in better condition to the developing countries. The clothes we receive are donated entirely by the community and the institutions that surround us, thus it is contribution to the whole mechanism of solidarity. Finally, all revenues generated by our store are dedicated solely to finance the remaining projects of the Red Cross, which allows us to act in several areas of intervention.
As you can see, Ponto Vermelho is more than just a store. It is above all an important part of a circle of solidarity and mutual aid, which involves the whole community. The contribution of all is crucial in order to achieve the desired harmony between all parts of the massive project, which is creating a future that aims for justice and social balance.
Contribute, volunteer, provide ... and be a part of this team, towards a better future!
