OTP Bank launched a charity Christmas auction to raise funds for prosthetics of heroes
A charity Christmas auction has been launched in OTP Bank. It will last from December 4 to December 25. All raised funds will be transferred to the Superhumans Center – for prosthetics of defenders who lost limbs in the war and need complex treatment and rehabilitation.
Auction participants are offered exclusive lots: Christmas lot from the First Lady, a flag of Ukraine with the autograph of Valery Zaluzhny, boxing gloves signed by Vitaliy Klitschko, Elina Svitolina’s tennis racket, a t-shirt with the signature of billionaire Buffett, a collection of works by Serhiy Zhadan, as well as commemorative coins, sets of stamps, unique jewelry for Christmas – all autographed by celebrities.
All bank clients can participate in the charity auction through the OTP Bank UA application.
The full list of lots is available on the website.
“Charity is the way that every responsible business can and should help society today. After all, the country, economy, citizens, and, our defenders, of course, need support. This is the second large charity auction held by OTP Bank to raise funds for prosthetics of heroes”, Volodymyr Mudryi, CEO of OTP Bank, said.
“I’d like to draw attention to a unique opportunity, a feature, that is not available in any other bank: the auction is held online in the OTP Bank UA application. I am sincerely grateful to our developers team, who managed and implemented such a seemingly “useless” from the point of view of banking operations, but such a relevant function for charity, which will help every client both to join the auction and to simply donate to Superhumans. An important aesthetic and emotional component – those who make a donation will have a unique author’s “shirt” on their bank card for Christmas. Let’s do a good deed and help our 25 Heroes by December 25!”, – said Lesya Syrota, director of the retail business sales department of OTP Bank, team leader of the OTP Bank Helps Ukraine project.
She also emphasized that auctioned lots are unique. “For example, collectible cards – a limited collection: “MOST WANTED. Ukrainian edition”, which cannot be found on sale. Or the flag of Ukraine with the emblem of Main Intelligence Directorate and the signature of Kyrylo Budanov, or didukh with the autograph of the genius Ada Rogovtseva – the symbol of Christmas in Ukraine. But the most important thing is that the raised funds will be directed for real help to our soldiers who need prosthetics. And it is within your power to support Ukrainian heroes”, resumed the team leader of the project.
Superhumans Center, an ultramodern center for the rehabilitation of adults and children affected by the war, was established on the basis of Yu.Lypa Lviv Regional Hospital for War Veterans and Repressed in April 2023. The center deals with prosthetics, complex reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation and psychological support of Ukrainians who suffered injuries due to the war. Every year, the center plans to receive up to 3,000 patients.
