Belgrade, March 30, 2011 - The playground of the “Leptirić” Kindergarten in Nova Pazova, reconstructed with funds collected through the “Big heart” MasterCard affinity card of Eurobank EFG and the “Ana and Vlade Divac” Foundation, has been ceremonially opened today. The "Leptirić" Kindergarten playground and its equipment are fully adjusted to children with disabilities in the aim of total inclusion and carefree growing up of all children.
„The affinity credit card with which we, together with our friends from the “Ana and Vlade Divac“ Foundation, reconstruct children’s playgrounds is the most effective way of directly applying our banking expertise and resources in order to do something beneficial for the society and the future of our children. In addition, this card represents the easiest way in which our clients can contribute to nicer growing up of their children with no additional costs,” said Nataša Strugarević, Member of Executive Board for Human Resources in Eurobank EFG.
Eurobank EFG and the “Ana and Vlade Divac“ Foundation launched the “Big Heart” affinity credit card in February 2010, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education of the Government of the Republic of Serbia. By using this unique MasterCard credit card, the Bank’s clients support the reconstruction of children’s playgrounds in state kindergartens across Serbia with no additional costs, and the “Leptirić“ Kindergarten is the third whose playground has been reconstructed with the funds collected from this card.
Our renowned basketball player Vlade Divac has expressed satisfaction with the progress of the “Big Heart” project and added the following: „The affinity card is one of the simplest manners for businesspeople and credit card users to support a nicer childhood of the children attending state kindergartens.”
Upon each transaction made with the “Big Heart” credit card (including purchasing and cash withdrawals), Eurobank allocates 1% of the transaction value and 50% of costs for monthly account maintenance to the “Ana and Vlade Divac“ Foundation, and the raised funds will be used for the reconstruction of children’s playgrounds in state kindergartens in Serbia. Eurobank EFG’s clients who opt for the “Big Heart” MasterCard card will bear no additional costs and can use it as any other standard credit card. The more clients use the “Big Heart” MasterCard card, the higher support for a better childhood of the children in Serbia will be provided. Eurobank EFG has so far issued XX “Big Heart” MasterCard affinity cards, and the next playground to be reconstructed and opened this April belongs to the “Veverica” Kindergarten in Pančevo.
