Subotica, November 18, 2014 – The “Lastavica“ Kindergarten’s playground within the “Naša radost“ Pre-School Institution, refurbished owing to funds raised via the “Big Heart” affinity card, issued jointly by Eurobank and the “Ana and Vlade Divac“ Foundation, has been ceremonially opened in Subotica today. The new playground includes playing items that can be used children with disabilities as well.
“We are very proud of the success of the “Big Heart” project, which brings happiness to children in Serbia and peace to their parents. With this affinity card, we have managed to use our banking know-how and resources in the most efficient manner and thus invest in the future of our children, together with partners from the Foundation,” said Magdalena Tatić, Head of Consumer Lending Business in Eurobank.
Thanks to more than 22 thousand users of the unique “Big Heart” MasterCard card, the kindergarten in Subotica is the 24th kindergarten renovated in the four years of the joint humanitarian project of Eurobank and the “Ana and Vlade Divac “Foundation.
Our renowned athlete Vlade Divac, with whom the “Lastavica“ Kindergarten children learnt their first basketball steps, has expressed gratitude to all “Big Heart” card users, as they have enabled the reconstruction of another children’s playground, and added the following: “I am certain that Subotica children will look forward to every beautiful day spent in the kindergarten’s yard and enjoy developing sports spirit.”
The card with a big heart – “Big Heart” MasterCard card – is used as any standard credit card, but its ultimate purpose is focused on improving conditions for more carefree growing up of children in Serbia. Clients who opt for using this unique card bear no additional costs, while contributing to an important humanitarian cause by supporting revitalisation of playgrounds and introduction of libraries in pre-school institutions across Serbia.
