Important donations and humanitarian campaigns
Lomas d.o.o. together with the Johnson&Johnson company has been cooperating with the Red Cross of Slovenia in their activity “Let’s take them to the sea” since 2012. During a certain period, we allocate €0.10 from each sold product of the Johnson’s baby brand for this activity. That is how, in the first year, with the help of loyal customers and consumers, we collected as much as €7,000. We also presented the humanitarian campaign and our purpose with advertising messages, and the public accepted the activity with interest. Due to the really good responses, together with Johnson&Johnson, we decided to support the “Let’s take them to the sea” humanitarian campaign next year as well, with the desire for the same or even higher final amount collected.
In 2013, we donated as much as €8,000 to the Red Cross of Slovenia for the humanitarian activity “Take them to the sea”.
In 2014, we upgraded our cooperation. With the “Hot meal for children” project, together with Johnson&Johnson, we supported the humanitarian activity of the Republic of Slovenia, “Breadcrumb”. We contributed funds for more than 3,000 hot meals.
Frequently, with the items of the brands we represent, we help non-profit organizations (SIBAHE Slovene food bank, Day Center for the Homeless within the Association of Volunteers of the Vincentian Goodness Association and others) in humanitarian campaigns to collect food, personal care products and cleaning products.
During the floods in the Balkans, we, the Lomas family, as well as the Lomas company, joined many organizations and individuals, as well as many Slovenian athletes, who organized themselves and collected aid for the flood victims. Our principals Colgate Palmolive, Johnson&Johnson, Saponia and Varta came to our aid. We have prepared packages of personal hygiene products (Palmolive, Carefree, o.b., Dettol), washing powders and cleaners (AVA, Faks, Nila, Ajax, Cillit…), children’s cosmetics (Johnson’s Baby) and flashlights and battery cartridges (Varta). We also collected money and bought baby diapers with the collected amount. Together, the employees and the company donated goods worth more than €20,000!!!
In addition, we also made it possible for external buyers to purchase the products of the brands we represent at purchase prices, who also donated the items to help the flood victims.
