Gibonni: “SOS Children's Village is amazing”

INA and Gibonni, two great friends and partners of SOS Children's Village Croatia, successfully combined music, children and charity at the recent Zagreb Auto Show. Gibonni, one of the most popular singers in Croatia, launched his new album Familija at INA’s exhibition space, announcing that the album would be sold in INA’s retail venues.

 Part of the proceeds from sales of the album will go to the charity – 10 kuna from every unit sold will be donated to SOS Children's Village Croatia.

Gibonni’s presence at INA’s exhibition space attracted a great deal of interest from the Zagreb Auto Show visitors. However, this time the famous singer was not surrounded only by numerous fans, but also by children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik. Gibonni enjoyed their company while signing CDs, the proceeds from which will be partly redirected to benefit the children without parents and adequate parental care in the SOS Children's Villages Croatia.

“Four years ago, my friend Darko, who happens to work for INA, suggested we visit the SOS Children's Village Lekenik together. I was genuinely amazed by the care and effort that his company invests in helping the people in need. I joined them in their noble effort and I am happy to say that we are still going strong. Oliver also embraced the idea as soon as he heard about it! We are honoured that we are able to make our contribution in our way, by doing what we do best, creating music”, said Gibonni.

“INA has been supporting SOS Children's Village Croatia continuously since 2009. This time we joined forces with a great singer and philanthropist. Gibonni’s album will be sold in 270 retail venues belonging to INA and 10 kuna out of every unit sold will be donated to SOS Children's Village Croatia. We believe that our customers will recognize the humanitarian value of this campaign”, said Mr. Darko Markotić, Executive Director of Retail at INA.

“Our loyal partners, INA and Gibonni, once again managed to surprise us. Cooperating and spending time with a huge star like Gibonni is incredibly exciting and happy experience for our children. We are sincerely grateful to them for sharing this lovely day at the Zagreb Auto Show with us and we thank them for their generous partnership”, said Marinka Šenjug, Head of the Fundraising Department at SOS Children's Village Croatia.

Gibonni and children from SOS Children's Village Lekenik enjoyed the entertainment program that INA prepared for the visitors of Zagreb Auto Show, such as the car driving simulators. Children went back to their SOS families with many wonderful impressions and memories and the partnership between INA and Association SOS Children's Village Croatia has become even stronger than before.
