BNP Paribas announced that it will organise its 11th annual charity bazaar at the Beautiful Store Anguk Branch today.
This charity bazaar is jointly organised by four BNP Paribas entities in Korea – namely BNP Paribas Seoul Branch, BNP Paribas Securities Korea, BNP Paribas Cardif Life Insurance and BNP Paribas Cardif General Insurance – as part of the BNP Paribas Group’s ongoing efforts since 2011 to support the neglected children together with the Beautiful Store, an NGO dedicated to promoting environmental awareness through the culture of recycling, donation, and sharing.
To promote the awareness of environmental protection, BNP Paribas employees donated second-hand goods including clothes, toys, books and shoes to be sold at the charity bazaar. The proceeds raised from the bazaar will be donated to support the children’s welfare centres and BNP Paribas employee volunteers are participating to support the bazaar.
Philippe Noirot, Territory Head of BNP Paribas South Korea, said: “We are glad to have this long-term partnership with the Beautiful Store to help the local community while contributing to environmental protection by sharing second-hand goods for reusing. As one of the largest global financial groups, we feel strongly responsible for the environmental issues and we hope that this charity bazaar will have a positive impact on reducing the environmental impact.”
Meanwhile, BNP Paribas is currently organising its annual fundraising campaign to encourage employees to make donations. The raised funds from the campaign will also be donated to support the underprivileged children at the children’s welfare centres.
