SPORT CULTURA BARCELONA
In the first place, we hope that, in the current context, you are all in good health and that Covid-19 has not affected you, neither your family members, nor, as far as possible, the social mass of your entity.
Through this letter we want to inform you that we would like to help to give visibility to the services that you have activated to better pass this period of confinement for your partners, and not partners.
The aim is to collect the information from all the members of Sport Cultura Barcelona about the leisure and knowledge proposals that you have active and consider more appropriate to centralize and share them with everyone. This way you will be informed of the resources, materials, activities, contents and proposals that your peers have put in the open and you will be able to send them to your partners as a suggestion to make this difficult situation more bearable.
Additionally, if you also need help of any kind in the framework of the epidemic, or have started a solidarity project, let us know so that we can disseminate it among the other partners so that they can also refer it to their community, and thus help you achieve the goal.
We also indicate that in order not to saturate the recipients with information and proposals, we will send you this type of email with the different news twice a week.
In the confidence that you find this initiative interesting, we look forward to receiving your information.
Thank you very much for your attention, and we hope to meet you again in person soon,
