BIG BLOOM COVID-19

#CallForVolunteers

Quarantine is particularly difficult for the most vulnerable. Many associations must urgently reinvent the link with their beneficiaries (disabled, young, precarious, homeless, etc.). To meet the need, Big Bloom organizes each week a solidarity hackathon for the benefit of an association.

It’s completely free, Big Bloom coaches work on a voluntary basis. This action is organized within the framework of French Impact, the government initiative for social innovation.

Would you like to participate as a volunteer in one of these online events?

WHAT IS THE BIG BLOOM HACKATHON COVID-19?

Every week during the quarantine, we are hosting a light version of a BIG BLOOM HACKATHON to support non-profit, suffering a lot from the crisis.

Until today, we have worked for Institut Télémaque, Singa, Siel Bleu, Gymsana, HostAHero.

Many more associations need help!
