We unified all our cause-related marketing projects under the heading ‘Days of Good Friends’. For a certain amount of time, agreed upon in advance, partners allow a part of their proceeds from the sales of a product or a group of products to go to a good cause. It can be one kuna from each coffee sold, or 50 lipas from the sales of a product. Once the allotted time has expired, the company makes a calculation and donates the amount from the number of items sold to the SOS Children's Village Croatia.

Key partners get:
  • additional promotion for their product – during the special sale period, this product will be displayed prominently against the competing products
  • the SOS Children's Village logo, to be used in the presentations of the promoted product
  • an article about the partnership in the SOS Journal (print run of 10.000 copies/subscribers)
  • SOS Children's Village promoting the campaign on social networks and its website
  • SOS Journal four times a year
Benefits from the partnership:
  • enhanced company reputation
  • impact on the loyalty of partner’s customers and clients
  • positive message for company’s employees
  • donation can be written off as operational cost

Corporate donations are not subjected to Profit tax if the amount of the donation is less than 2% of the company's revenues in the previous year, while the Value added tax act stipulates the tax-exempt of corporate money donations.
