For the benefit of the International Day against Breast Cancer held on the 19th of October, Banco Santander has launched Solidarity Digital Rounding, which lets its clients round their purchases upwards to allocate the money to the Spanish Association Against Cancer. 
 


According to the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer, one out of 8 women will have breast cancer during her life. Every year, around 33,000 new cases are diagnosed in Spain. However, despite it being an increasingly frequent disease, the percentage of life expectancy and overcoming this cancer are also higher. Specifically, between 80 and 85% of sick people overcome the disease, according to the Association.

Therefore, despite the daily work of researchers being extremely exhaustive, on these days it is more necessary than ever to highlight that institutions, companies and society must commit to the fight against this disease, and the importance of investigating and diagnosing it in time.

In this way, there are many initiatives that have started to do their part in breast cancer research. For example, this year Banco Santander and the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer have signed an agreement of collaboration and the entity will send a monthly monetary amount from clients who take part in the so-called solidarity rounding.

Therefore, these clients can turn their credit card into a solidarity card. In other words, every time they buy something with it, they will have the option of rounding up the price. For example, if the price of a purchase in a supermarket is 39,60 euros, the remaining 40 cents up to 40 euros are allocated to the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer. Despite it seeming a minimum amount, the contribution of thousands of clients means big amounts of money.
