Our new indicator, the CROWD CAPITAL INDICATOR, serves to measure Hungarian community pledges that aim to compensate or decrease the negative effects of the pandemia Covid-19. CCI tracks the aggregate market value of Hungarian services and donations to the public  from the 28 February

We trust that the indicator and its communication will significantly contribute to activating our responsiveness and adaptability, to the common good.
We designed a semi-automatic research based on manual, automated and crowdsourced collection, and a validation process.

The Covid19 donations have exceeded the 13.5 billion HUF this year

A new milestone has been reached with the donations this year, since summer. The amount has exceeded any expectations and has gone as high as 13866112816 HUF. The total amount of the donations has also grown approximately 5.6% with the value of 25 398 404 HUF since the measurements took place last time. This progress is considered highly accelerating since this 25 398 404 HUF is exactly the double volume of what it was from March till August. Amongst the donations, we can find truly interesting and eye-catching ones with a focus on children this time around. Due to Florin Zrt’s generous donation, the school in need all around the city have received more than 420000 pieces of hand sanitizers in order to successfully and more efficiently defend the students from catching the Covid- 19. As mentioned, the main focus of the donations this time was children in need, which is why these students were also given a ton of ice cream and pudding desserts as part of Unilever’s and Waberer’s Szemerey Kft charity programme. The good doing did not stop here, as part of UNICEF’s annual clothing collection campaign, more than 11 million HUF was raised to then buy clothing for families in need, especially now that winter and its cold weather is approaching. E.ON Hungary contributed to this campaign by buying a million HUF worth of clothing from Pop-up stores in order to prevent these items to be destroyed and instead given to those who need them the most. The campaign was an utmost success; however, we do hope that next year even more can be collected. As the new school year was approaching, children and families all around Hungary have struggled to buy all necessitates for the year, as the cost of all stationeries that are compulsory, have never been more expensive compared to the average GDP in Hungary. Auchan Hungary therefore, took it upon itself to help by distributing all kinds of stationeries to 65000 families in the entire country from the most basic ones such as pens to painting kits and school bags. However, stationeries are not only needed amongst students, in hospitals and health centres, where digitalization is not yet implemented, tons of paper is used every year. Vajda Papír Kft donated heaps of paper to these health centres in the hope that we could face Covid-19 more efficiently, even by just helping these facilities document and administrate better.


The Crowd Capital Indicator shows pledges from the crowd, i.e. social capital or crowd capital. Everyone pledges what he/she can provide to help the community.
We hope that the indicator and its communication activates our ability to react and adapt!
