As in previous years, the Algol Group is donating to Finnish and global causes this Christmas instead of sending out cards and gifts.
This year, donations are being made to the following causes:
- John Nurminen Foundation, Clean Baltic Sea Project
- Finnish Lifeboat Institution
- Finnish Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund
- Folkhälsan, Lucia Collection
- Finnish War Veterans
- Crisis Management Initiative CMI
According to Algol Group CEO Alexander Bargum, a suitable balance between Finnish and international causes, has been sought. In addition to the multi-year donation recipients, this year, a new beneficiary of the donation is UNICEF. Furthermore, the amount donated to the Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) has been increased this year in honor of CMI’s founder and former president Martti Ahtisaari.
This year, Algol has also donated 10,000 euros to the Finnish Red Cross Hunger Day collection and 30,000 euros to humanitarian relief in Ukraine. Half of the amount was donated to UNICEF’s Ukraine Fund and half to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Finnish Red Cross.
