> by email to chariti@joselitomoves.com , or    

> by phone or whatsapp (+ 34 609 549 324) .

You don´t stay in the touristic zone of Maspalomas at the South Coast ?

Please contact us or ask your hotel reception which are the possibilities to come

Do not hesitate to ask us for the possibilities depending your own situation.

 Why a hike day for Charity ?

 

Like elsewhere, also this wonderful holiday paradise island of Gran Canaria has his (social)problem situations. Unfortunately, also in our own environment, more and more of our fellow citizens get into problems (financial, drugs, unemployment, etc..). We maybe not be aware, but more than we think get into difficult financial situation after getting unexpected but serious health problems.

With this initiative we like to try to be helpful in our own way towards less fortunate fellow citizens in our own society.

Depending the success of this initiative, in the future we could plan also other kind of direct contributions to more solidarity in own environment.

 

Therefore, by JoselitoMoves this hike tour today where you first can evaluate our services on tour, and decide at the end of the excursion day how much we may donate extra afterwards for the good cause. After the walk, the latest on the way back in the bus to the different pick up points in the South, a non-binding collection is organized. In this way, YOU get the possibility to determine partially yourself the amount of YOUR end payment depending on your level of satisfaction with our service performance on tour…. Considerating the minimum participation amount of 25 € per participant. (**)

 

(**)      As we are not financially supported nor sponsored at all by any kind of government or other supporting institution. Standard daily costs continue to be covered too, also for this excursion day. Therefore, a minimum payment of € 25 per person is asked for partial offset of those daily expenses.

Every “Charity” hiking excursion, however, is a full-day excursion. To participate in a one of our other full day excursions the prices are higher…from 39 e and up. And depending on the number of participants per Charity excursion day, a larger or smaller extra donation also from our side will be calculated in favour of our charity goal, and deducted from the basic participation rate.

Because yes goal of this day is NOT using the charity sense of our guests to make extra money. But YES indeed the collection of contributions for a Good Cause as much as possible.

The total collected donation amount of the day will always be reported to the group before people leave the

bus at the end of the day.

To be sure that the collected extra donations , big or small, really arrive there where we think they are necessary and useful. Instead of forwarding the donations by bank transfer to social institutions, or in cash to individuals.

For this season we decided to buy food products our self once a month with the amounts collected

the 4 weeks before. And forward those products the days following on that purchase alternately to

(municipal) social institutions, (local) church community, foundations, etc…that organize food

distribution for the homeless and others who live in trouble in our own community. And/or also to

individuals and families affected by (unexpected) financial setbacks in their own daily lives .

Only this way we think to be sure that your and our donation contributions really arrive where indeed

really necessary and needed in our own community.

 

Privacy is a holy word for JoselitoMoves. But, if questions or doubts would occur about what really happens with the collected donation amounts afterwards ? Don´t hesitate to let us know. Only by asking we will be able to inform more in detail about our actions . Without, however, making public ones private situation without the personal permission of the concerned person or family.
