In the context of the Ticket Restaurant® voucher's shift to digital, the card holders can now donate to the French Red Cross all year long from their dedicated website, www.myedenred.fr, in accordance with the card's rules of use. For every €1 that is donated, 1 full meal will be distributed.
Moreover, employees with Ticket Restaurant® vouchers in paper format still have the ability to donate to the French Red Cross. They should simply write "Red Cross" on all donated vouchers and send them, free of postage, to the address shown in their Ticket Restaurant® books.
"New year" operation
For the switch to the new year of vouchers, from 1 to 15 March 2015, Ticket Restaurant® card users will also be able to donate all or some of their 2014 funds remaining on their account from www.myedenred.fr.
As for 2014 paper vouchers, they can be sent until 30 April 2015.
A 12-year partnership to support the food aid actions of the French Red Cross
The “Restaurons la solidarité” (Nurturing solidarity) operation was launched 12 years ago by Ticket Restaurant® to support the French Red Cross and its food assistance actions.
Over €2 million have been collected since the start of the partnership, including €191,000 in the first half of 2014. The collected funds allow the association to implement actions promoting balanced, healthy nutrition for people in difficulty, particularly by increasing their intake of fruit and vegetables.
Every year, the Group helps nearly 300 associations around the world undertake solidarity operations in the areas of food aid, education and return-to-work products. These initiatives are part of the Ideal care program, the solidarity component of Edenred's corporate social responsibility approach.
