The organisers highlighted the innovative aspect of the Foundation and the actions carried out by Maisons du Monde: "More than a foundation, it is an innovative initiative to get employees and customers engaged in a collaborative philanthropic action. With a target set at 1,000 employees to have participated in solidarity activities by 2020, Maisons du Monde has chosen to give meaning to the projects it supports by getting its employees engaged through team building in Southern countries in the form of collective solidarity leaves or solidarity days…"
