The campaign on KissKissBankBank has not reached its target of € 300,000, but it has triggered an extraordinary engagement: more than 1400 donations and more until the last minute, hundreds of messages and comments of support, a campaign inspired from ours in the US and donors from many other European countries: Portugal, Spain, Gremany, Great-Britain, Belgium and Switzerland.
An essential step remains to be accomplised so that, despite the failure to reach the posted objective, your donations will actually reach their intended recipient : the Fund of support to initiatives and structures of social solidarity in Greece. At the close of the campagn (this afternoon April 4th, 2:47pm), your contributions will be reimbursed on the same credit card you used to make them. If you can follow you credit card accounts on-line, you will see the reimbursement appearing soon. If not you will see it only on the next summary sent to you.
In order to turn the solidarity objective of the campaign into a reality, we ask you transfer by international bank transfer the amount of your donation to Fund of support to initiatives and structures of social solidarity. In all cases, international bank transfers are free of charge in the euro zone. Check the cost of transfer from the UK.
Here is the information needed to make the transfer :
Name of recipient : FUND OF SUPPORT TO INITIATIVES AND STRUCTURES OF SOCIAL SOLIDARITY
Address of recipient : 74, AKADIMIAS str., 106 78 ATHENS
BIC : ETHNGRAA
IBAN : GR59 0110 0400 0000 0404 8343 562
The following is normally not needed, but in case it is required by your bank :
Address of the recipient’s bank branch : NATIONAL BANK OF GREECE, 86, AIOLOU str., 102 32 ATHENS, TEL. 210-3342262, CODE NUMBER OF THE BRANCH 40
DO NOT FORGET to put INTERDEMOS DONATION in the Communication field of the bank
et, une fois le virement fait merci de nous en prévenir par email à contact [AT] interdemos [DOT] net with subject “Virement” and indicating the amount transferred.

Finally, this essential step is only the end of the beginning of the People to people campaign. We will follow and inform you about the next steps with the negotiations and pressure by the European institutions and States. In this contexte the solidarity campaigns are in the process of federating themselves in France and other countries, in particular in view of a Festival of solidarity organized next June in Greece by Solidarity for All. And of course, the common background to all this is solidaity and reopenoing political futures in every country.
In case you are not used to make international transfers here is a little how-to with two options:
Method 1) At your bank branch
You will have to fill an international transfer form with the information above and you should normally be able to receive assistance from the branch staff.
Method 2) by Internet Banking
You must first create a transfer recipient (if you live in the Eurozone it is called a SEPA transfer recipient, otherwise just an international transfer recipient). You will be asked to enter the information above. Then there is a procedure for confirming the creation of the recipient, such as entering a code which you receive by SMS or entering your birthdate, or generating a code on a small security device and entering it, depending on countries, banks and amount. Sometimes there is a delay of 24h before the recipient appears in your list of possible recipients. When it does you just select “one-off transfer” and fill the amount.
