A record amount of 50,000 euros: that was the result of private donors’ contribution at the Colonna end-of-year charity gala. The amount will be used to buy a new neonatal resuscitation table for Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital. The gala, held in Tallinn, is a part of Colonna’s broader charity campaign “Aita elustad elu” (Help Resuscitate Life) which was launched to raise donations for buying the table, an equipment necessary for monitoring a newborn’s vital signs so that reliable information about the baby’s condition can be received. Roberto de Silvestri, Colonna founder and CEO, and Andrea Agostinone, the company co-founder, have been the private donors to have made the largest contribution during the gala: 4,000 euros each. Both managers underlined the importance of the gala, “a great tradition whose amount of donations are increasing every year“. Colonna’s charity campaigns raised an amount of more than 120,000 euros in mere five years that supported maternity hospitals in helping newborns and prematurely born babies. “For Colonna, charity is an essential mission, which will definitely continue“, said Andrea Agostinone.
Help Resuscitate Life charity campaign will last until the end of the year. Calling the support foundation number 900 6000 you can donate 5 euros, whereas calling the support foundation number 900 6100 you can donate 15 euros.
