Buying for charity

02 October 2013

The economic crisis has encouraged many charities to form alliances with businesses. Buy a certain product and the manufacturer will donate to a charity on your behalf. This could be money, but it could also be a material donation, such as a tetanus vaccination for UNICEF for every pack of nappies you buy. But does it work? And could there be a negative effect?

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
