Grandma doesn't want to let her arms down, not even through COVID. This pandemic took her by surprise and it seems that she doesn't want to let it work.

She has already paraded, taught how to embroider, serigraph and even made masks. Now, Grandma needs your help.

Avó Veio Trabalhar needs help. Without the usual face-to-face workshops - moments of learning but with a few kisses and hugs in between, creative residences across the country, team building actions for companies, or customized products for new customers, the active aging promotion project faces now she is experiencing difficulties and even runs the risk of losing the space that serves as her home, in Lisbon's Penha de França neighborhood.

But it is necessary to ensure that the more than 70 Grandmothers continue to have a meeting place and a place to work. For this purpose, the crowdfunding campaign “Let's help Grandma” was born, an attempt to mitigate the effects of the pandemic in one of the most cherished projects in the city.

The model is simple: whoever wants to contribute just has to choose one of the reward levels and demonstrate, therefore, all their love for Grandma. All resulting products have a label with the serial number and the photograph of the producer - “She made it for you”. Whoever wants, of course, can always opt for the free donation.

Going shopping with Grandma is also always a way to support the project! From the masks that they painted by hand in full confinement to the pillows, through the embroidery kits on photography, by the cloth dolls, this 100% national project has already given a lot of creativity and is all in the online store - www.fermenta.org

About the author

[IMAGE: 823069: 4]

In 2014, the initiative started by bringing together two dozen grandparents. United by the way for manual techniques, including knitting, crochet and embroidery, A Avó Veio Trabalhar was born, a social business leveraged by Susana António, designer, and Ângelo Campota, psychologist. Design was the main tool to provide active aging in an age group above 60 and, at the same time, put an end to the loneliness to which many of these people were bound.

Embroidered gloves and silk-screened cushions were the first pieces to be sold. But Grandma quickly started to get off the couch where she worked on her work. He paraded in the middle of Chiado, traveled around the country to give workshops, had fun at summer festivals, posed in a bathing suit, graffiti murals, prepared suggestive cookies and taught his grandchildren to shop on Jumbo online. The year 2015 ends with the “Best idea of the year” award, given by Time Out.

As a project based on inclusion, he always paid in the same currency: in 2016, he participated for the first time in Arraial Lisboa Pride and took a battalion of grandparents to the street, dressed in all colors. Charisma and friendliness have been proportional to the quality of this workforce. Avó's talent was already requested by the Cannes Film Festival, by Brazilian artist Mana Bernardes, by director Jan Beddegenoodts or by singer Mallu Magalhães.

From Lisbon, Avó crossed borders. He was present at Design Week in Budapest and was the sensation artist at Duch Design Week. The survival of the project is now in the hands of several generations of grandchildren. It is in their hands that the future lies, for these and the grandmothers to come.

    Amorzinhos,

    Amorzinhos,
    dizer obrigada, às vezes, não é suficiente para agradecer as tão amáveis e gentis pessoas que nos momentos das nossas vidas, aqueles mais difíceis, nos estendem a mão e nos oferecem amparo. A Avó está eternamente agradecida e não sabe bem como retribuir tanto carinho que os seus netinhos foram demonstrando ao longo destes últimos dois meses de aperto no coração. Muitos, mas muitos de vocês partilharam esta angústia, mensagens de apoio, de força, de coragem, sobretudo de optimismo. E é aqui que a Avó se quer focar, na esperança de ser possível construir um mundo melhor, onde novos e velhos serão pessoas, só pessoas. A Avó promete continuar a inspirar, a fazer sorrir, a recordar, a sonhar todos os seus netinhos do coração.

    E agora, chega de lamechas, porque é altura de comemorar. Vistam o vosso melhor fato de banho, porque a pool party acabou de começar. Há cocktail para todos!

    Obrigada ❤️

    A Avó está de coração cheio

    Amorzinho,
    obrigada pelo apoio, o qual permitirá que as suas Avós preferidas continuem a arrasar.
    Confessamos que os nossos coraçõezinhos quase pararam de tanto bater, dada a tamanha excitação por saberem que existem tantas, mas tantas pessoas que se preocupam connosco e com o nosso futuro.
    Juntos vamos conseguir construir um mundo melhor, com esperança para todos, novos e velhos.
    Este apoio dá-nos o alento para continuarmos esta aventura, na certeza que não podemos parar, e que sim, temos o dever de continuar a inspirar e fazer sorrir todos os mais velhos que sentem que perderam o rumo, ou que as suas vidas já não fazem sentido.
    Prometemos que o nosso espaço vai continuar a ser um local de aventuras, desafios e alegria contagiante.

    Restam 12 dias para tornar este sonho ainda maior. Divulguem e divulguem e divulguem a campanha, para que todos juntos sejamos mais fortes, porque o que fizermos agora será o nosso futuro.

    Um beijinho destas Avós que tanto vos estimam.
