Philanthropy

Alex Bobes founded a Non-profit association named Taxi Gratis in 2013. The association works towards providing free transport service to people with disabilities or any severe disease who cannot afford to keep a car or taxi fares.[6] He lends his car, time and bears the petrol costs and helps the people in need.[7] He initially started with a Facebook page and a website to reach out to people and let them know about his service. People contact him a few days in advance before their ride and get confirmation a day before. Since he gets only a few free hours, through the association Alex Bobes expects to reach more sponsors and volunteers for his work.
