CNP Assurances employees, who got behind the “Bougeons Solidaires” collective sports challenge, have successfully reached their target. Thanks to an incredibly active community, CNP Assurances was able to make a €50k donation to Secours populaire français, which will help support people in need and isolated pensioners.
Launched on 22 April, the community “Bougeons Solidaires” (let’s move together) challenge enabled CNP Assurances employees to undertake different sports activities – albeit under lockdown conditions – via a platform. This challenge helped us look after ourselves and others, with each employee awarded points based on a fixed scale for each action undertaken (creating a profile, registering for an activity, sharing a photo of themselves alone or in a team). These points were then converted into a donation in Euros.
Thanks to the efforts of our employees, CNP Assurances has donated €50k to support the work of Secours populaire français. This donation will be put towards the emergency fund that has been set up by the charity to help people among other things in need and isolated pensioners. The emergency fund has been rolled out across France, through the regional branches of the charity.
During the crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, Secours populaire français remains mobilised to assist people in serious hardship by providing food as well as material aid (personal hygiene products, toys, IT equipment, etc.) with three aims in mind: to protect, help, and support. Secours populaire français volunteers have already assisted some 1.27 million people since mid-March, of which 45% were new requests. The figures are staggering, as is the distress of these families.
