The new crowdfunding platform TIMsostiene is online as of 25 May. It kicks off with 8 online fundraising campaigns for initiatives and emergencies felt across all of society.
The platform was set up to support special initiatives, promoted by key players in the third sector, made to engage the Italian people with acts and commitments which affect us all, topics that attract widespread attention:
health and research – to support medical and scientific research;
the environment – to promote protect the environment and areas of natural beauty;
culture – to enhance the artistic-cultural heritage;
society – to support people in hardship and promote the protection of inalienable rights.

Aiutaci a farli viaggiare in salute  (Help us to see they travel in health) by Fondazione Umberto Veronesi (Umberto Veronesi Foundation)

The Foundation was established in 2003 on the initiative of Umberto Veronesi and many other scientists and intellectuals of international fame, including 11 Nobel prize winners. It aims to promote excellence in scientific research and initiatives for preventive healthcare, health education and popular science.

The campaign is aimed at childhood cancer survivors and seeks to develop the Survivorship Passport-SurPass, a platform for viewing the clinical data of young patients and facilitating medical follow-ups over the course of their lives, in order to offer greater guarantees of monitoring late complications.

Io sto con Paolo (I’m with Paolo)

Paolo Palumbo is a 20-year-old boy and the youngest person in Italy to suffer from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a neurogenerative disease which over several months has left him in a wheelchair, but has not weakened his strength of mind.

The campaign stems from Paolo's daily commitment and aims to create a pool of researchers, the so-called DREAM (Developing a Research Advanced Model) Team, which will work together on an integrated strategy to accelerate the identification of a targeted treatment for ALS.

Unaiutosubito (Help Now) by Corriere delle Sera, TgLa7, TIM

The “Un Aiuto Subito" (Help Now) initiative was launched in 1997, thanks to Corriere della Sera and TG La7, immediately following the earthquake in Umbria and Marche, and since then has been constantly active in cases where people and territory have been seriously hit calling on the solidarity of the population. TIM joined the initiative after the earthquake that hit central Italy in the summer of 2016.

The campaign supports rescue and recovery efforts in the affected areas in central Italy.

Dona una linea di codice (Donate a line of code) by  Programma il Futuro (Programme the Future)

Programme the Future is a project sponsored by the Ministry of Education and implemented by CINI (the consortium of Italian universities that teach and conduct research in computer science). Since the school year 2014/2015 it has aimed to provide students from schools of all types and levels with a series of simple, fun and easily accessible tools to introduce them to basic IT concepts. Since it started, around 6,400 schools have joined the initiative.

The campaign boosts this project, which intends to make young girls and boys key players in our digital future.

Talenti on stage (Talent on Stage) by Accademia Teatro alla Scala (La Scala Theatre Academy)

The Academy’s history dates back to 1813 when the Theatre opened a dance school, now one of the most prestigious institutions in the world for dance training. Since 2001 the Academy has created 4 departments - Music, Dance, Stage and Workshops, and Management - for all professionals linked to the musical theatre; its educational offer includes training courses, specialisation and workshops.

The campaign stems from a collaboration between the Academy and Fondazione TIM to offer 160 scholarships to young pupils at La Scala.

Io dono fiducia (I donate trust) by Fondazione L’Albero della Vita (Tree of Life Foundation)

L’Albero della Vita (The Tree of Life) is an organisation committed, since 1997, to ensuring the well-being of children, protecting and promoting rights, encouraging the development of minors, their families and the communities they belong to, in Italy and worldwide. In Italy, absolute poverty deprives 1 out of 8 children of the right to be a child.

This campaign aims to fund a programme to end poverty in Italy, focussed in particular on families with underage children.

Vincere la povertà in Italia (Beating poverty in Italy)  by Oxfam   

Established in Great Britain in 1942 to bring food to war-weary Greek women and children, active in Italy since 1972 to save and rebuild the lives of people in emergency situations, Oxfam is now a global movement of people who endeavour to eliminate the injustice of poverty.

The campaign aims to offer aid to those living in vulnerable and difficult situations in Italy by developing community centres, currently found in Turin, Milan, Catania, Arezzo and Florence.

Dal salvataggio all’inclusione
(From rescue to inclusion) by UNICEF

UNICEF is a UN organisation tasked since 1946 with protecting and promoting the rights of children and adolescents (0-18 years) throughout the world and helping to improve their quality of life. It has been operating in Italy since 1974 and since 1976 has, among its other activities, promoted a direct intervention programme to tackle the humanitarian crisis of underage migrants and refugees.

The campaign promotes a vocational training project and the development of social and economic inclusion paths for underage migrants and Italians in Sicily.
