Les Clients Ryanair Aident La Compagnie Aérienne À Faire Un Don De 10,000 € À Make-A-Wish En Belgique Avec Les Scratchcards

Ryanair, la compagnie aérienne n ° 1 en Europe, a présenté aujourd’hui (1 mar) un don de 10,000 € à Make-A-Wish en Belgique, son plus récent partenaire dans le cadre de son jeu Scratchcard, qui a déjà permis de collecter des millions pour des œuvres de bienfaisance dans toute l’Europe.

Les Scratchcards Ryanair offrent aux clients la possibilité de gagner des prix en espèces, des voitures de luxe ainsi que de remporter un million d’euros – le tout pour une participation de seulement 2 € – des dons permanents étant versés à de nombreuses associations caritatives européennes.

Make-A-Wish Belgique est une organisation caritative qui a déjà réalisé plus de 2 600 souhaits depuis sa création en 1990, exauçant ainsi les vœux des enfants qui luttent contre des maladies représentant un risque vital.

Hilde Van Der Stichele, présidente de Make-A-Wish Belgium, a déclaré :

Make-A-Wish Belgique est très heureuse et reconnaissante d’être le bénéficiaire belge des Scratchcards Ryanair. C’est la première fois pour nous et nous espérons que cela marque le début d’un partenariat prospère et chaleureux ! Un soutien financier est essentiel pour que nous poursuivions notre travail consistant à exaucer le vœu le plus cher des enfants âgés de 3 à 18 ans atteints de maladies constituant un risque vital afin de créer des expériences qui changeront leur vie. Nous apprécions profondément ce soutien des passagers et de l’équipage impliqué dans les Scratchcards. Merci Ryanair.

 Aoife Greene, responsable de la distribution chez Ryanair, a ajouté:

“C’est un plaisir de soutenir le travail incroyable que Make-A-Wish fait pour les enfants et leurs familles en Belgique. Ryanair et notre équipage sont ravis d’annoncer que Make-A-Wish Belgique est notre tout nouveau partenaire Scratchcard et nous sommes impatients de poursuivre ce partenariat dans l’avenir avec davantage de dons et plus de vœux réalisés pour les enfants en Belgique. Les clients qui achètent Scratchcards Ryanair aident également de nombreux organismes de bienfaisance européens, notamment Jack et Jill en Irlande, Pequeneo Deseo en Espagne, Refugio Aboim Ascensao au Portugal, Hôpital Meyer en Italie et Kinder Hilfe en Allemagne. Demandez nos cartes à gratter sur votre prochain vol Ryanair et vous pourriez être notre prochain gagnant.”
