Nextron supports four different charities this year
Being dedicated is one of Nextron's core values. This dedication also means being committed to others well-being. This year we choose to donate money to four different charities.
In Denmark, we support the country's biggest initiative against cancer, Knæk Cancer. Cancer is a public disease and it affects up to 30 percent of the population - which in many ways makes us all dependents. To support research ensures that fewer people get cancer, more survive and more get a better life after the illness. We at Nextron donate and contribute to a better life for both patients and relatives. Another charity supported by Nextron is the Hospital Clowns in Denmark. They make children in hospitals smile, spreading joy and laughter from their visits. These visits to hospitals have been shown to help in lifting children’s moods with hope and humour. There is also an associated positive benefit to the staff and families of patients.
In Sweden, we contribute to Kenyan children education through the Madeleine Forssberg Community Based Organization (MFCBO). Through the concept of "run for life", contributors are encouraged to purchase a race bib. The revenue strengthens the school's equipment, such as ensuring clean well water. Unlike other organizations which may ship school supplies to African countries, the MFCBO organization purchase these supplies locally. Supporting the school thus also supports the local community, which ensures better welfare for all.
In Norway and Finland, Nextron supports the non-profit micro-loan organization Kiva.org. With this platform low-income entrepreneurs can lend money to their business via the Internet through public financing, or so-called crowd-funding. Kiva's goal is to ensure financial security for smaller businesses to thrive, creating prosperous local communities. Since 2005, Kiva has contributed over 1.6 million loans totaling $ 1.3 billion to entreperneurs in over 77 countries. Behind every microloan-financed project there is a personal story, and as a lender you choose which person's projects you want to support. This contributes to a personal aid experience linking people together.
