LA FONDATION TAO
SUPPORTING PROJECTS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO US AND HELPING CHILDREN IN VULNERABLE SITUATIONS TO FLOURISH AND GROW
We have been working with our partner organisations for over 10 years to help children in vulnerable situations develop their well-being, cultivate their confidence and reveal their talent.
We want every child to have better access to the basic things in life and be able to create, dream, build and reveal their superpower. And all this is only possible thanks to the generosity of TAO customers and the incredible energy that TAO employees put into the projects.
The TAO Foundation is launching its first edition of "CHALLENGE Associations", a challenge to support student associations in the European Metropolis of Lille by supporting three projects with an amount of up to 10,000 euros. So, student friends, get to work!
The TAO Foundation is funded by Tape à l'œil and by its customers through the Foundation Bag!
Thanks to the commitment shown by our entire community, the TAO Foundation can contribute to more and more projects each year.

THE TAO FOUNDATION SUPPORTS THEM
Because they trust us and their projects help to develop children's superpowers. Because they reveal children's potential to make the world a better place. Because they stimulate and encourage them.
Here are some of these incredible projects
A chance to meet the young people from the association, have fun, and create a bond with them. This is what the Foundation wanted when it suggested a football match to our staff.
The Foundation financed artistic workshops for secondary school students in a ULIS (Local Units for Educational Inclusion) programme who produced a cookery book.
The Foundation arranged for autistic children and their families to spend a day well away from hospitals in a magical setting at Disneyland Paris
The Foundation offered an inclusion workshop based on a board game "All aboard", an activity that allowed the children to understand and put themselves in the shoes of a child with a disability.
Working with the Solfa association, the TAO Foundation has enabled the construction of a Snoezelen room for the children of the Hera nursery school.
The TAO Foundation is funding three projects by student associations in the European Metropolis of Lille aimed at children in vulnerable situations.
Over the course of a day, three of our employees renovated a room in a girls' home in Lille. The aim was to create a workplace where they could study and a pleasant, cosy and welcoming place to meet in peace.
The Heart keyring is personalised with the child's name. Each bracelet represents a hospital stay, and each bead is associated with an important moment of the child's stay or a particular treatment. A bracelet is proof of their courage, their heroic journey and their will to live.
The Foundation launched its 1st national toy collection with the Rejoué association. More than 262 boxes were collected, and 80 shops participated in this initiative. This action makes four times as many people happy: a child who gives, an adult who renovates, a child who receives and a toy that goes back to be played with again.
Raising awareness of sustainable development objectives among school children in priority neighbourhoods through workshops and an annual project (waste management, composting, etc.)
The Foundation is springing into action to help Ukrainian refugee children in reception centres in Poland, sending pallets of clothing, basic necessities, food, etc.
10 employees are sponsoring schoolgirls. This initiative fights against stereotypical career choices by working on their motivations and educational orientation.
10 visually impaired children will finally benefit from a guide dog! This will allow them to develop their independence.
