Curitiba sets record for fundraising in the Havan’s 2020 “Troco Solidário” Campaign

With a total of R$ 419 thousand collected, the seven Havan megastores in the city of Curitiba, Paraná, were the ones that had the highest results in the “Troco Solidário” campaign in 2020. The amount will be destined to the Paraná Association of Support to Children with Neoplasia (APACN), the first institution to support children and adolescents with cancer in Brazil. The 30 stores in the state of Paraná totaled R $ 2.3 million and the funds will help 20 social projects in the cities where the funds were raised.

The non-profit Paraná Association of Support to Children with Neoplasia (APACN) was created in 1983 to provide free assistance to children and adolescents with cancer from all over Brazil, who are undergoing treatment in Curitiba. Annually, approximately 1,500 guests are assisted at the “Casa de Apoio” unit. These guests are patients, companions and bone marrow donors when the case requires a transplant. In addition, the organization also maintains the Menino Jesus de Praga Ambulatory: consultations, chemotherapy sessions, exams and the Research Center (CEGEMPAC).

“Troco Solidário Havan”

The project has existed in the retail chain since 2010. In these years, it has raised more than R$ 30 million and has helped almost a thousand institutions across the country. “Among the actions we have, “Troco Solidário” is one of the most beautiful and significant. It is the result of the collective effort to help those who do good. There are thousands of people who trust us to make their contribution. We are immensely grateful to know that from penny to penny we can help thousands of people. I appreciate each donation. They make all the difference”, emphasizes Havan’s owner, Luciano Hang.

How the campaign works

Entities interested in participating in the “Troco Solidário” campaign should contact the branch manager in their cities (if there is more than one store in the municipality, go to just one branch) and register the institution in the campaign. The entity undergoes evaluation. It is necessary that the institution has its own CNPJ (EIN), bank account in the name of the entity, bylaws, and suitability.

From the approved registration, the “Troco Solidário” becomes an invitation, made by the Havan cashier, to donate the change, or part of it, to the campaign. The donated amount is accounted in the system and the person receives a proof of participation, informing which entity she is helping. In each edition, the amount collected includes a different entity.
