We also support various initiatives to benefit the community and to encourage our people to take an active part in important social and voluntary projects.
For example, since 2008, we have been supporting the activities of the charity Dynamo Camp, a recreational therapy centre set up to provide free residential treatment for babies and children suffering from serious diseases, where, every year, some of our employees choose to take part as volunteers, contributing their time, commitment and passion with the sole aim of putting a smile on the faces of the youngsters housed in the centre.
We organise special blood donation days within the business and we support the Meyer Paediatric Hospital in Florence in implementing projects for the benefit of its patients and their families.
We actively support Unicef through the making, by our employees, of Pigotte rag-dolls, the proceeds of which help to save the lives of millions of children around the world. For several years, we have also taken an active part in “Race for the Cure” organised to raise funds for research into breast cancer and to raise awareness about prevention.
