WHO WE ARE?
The idea to set up Charity Taxi is rooted in the 2015 refugee crisis, when we witnessed a massive civic collaboration to help those in need. The willingness of this crowd to extend a helping hand was both moving and inspiring. It proved that a multitude of people were willing and ready to help in a multitude of ways, and it showed that Budapest had incredible potential when it came to donations. However, we felt and saw that many people never made it to action from intention. Thus, the idea was born to make it easier to donate and by picking up donations from people’s homes.
In the past seven years, the charity collected donations from more than 3000 households in the capital city and delivered it to 100 different towns with the help of 600 volunteers.
