Christmas market was held at the consultancy's headquarters in Lisbon, according to the press release sent to SUPERCASA Notícias
. This charitable initiative brought together various social organisations, providing a unique experience for the company's employees, friends, clients and partners to buy Christmas presents and contribute to various organisations
with which JLL does ongoing work throughout the year.
With the active collaboration of all the participants who visited the market, the initiative raised around €4,000, which will go entirely to the various organisations that took part. JLL provides the space and amenities, and the associations bring their products or services.
"It's part of our DNA to get involved with the community and contribute to various causes with which we identify, especially in a challenging climate such as that experienced by many families in Portugal. Following on from the success we had last year, it was imperative for us to repeat another edition, at this time of year which is so conducive to consumption, and can be an excellent option for channelling support to these associations. It's the perfect window for fundraising - people need to buy Christmas presents, and the associations need to sell to continue their work", explains Patrícia Araújo, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at JLL.
This is the second year that JLL has organised this event and it has once again embraced the mission of supporting non-profit organisations, giving them the opportunity to raise funds for their causes. Several brands took part in this market, such as Thirst Project Portugal, Capiti, MatitiBag, SOUMA, Dona Ajuda, Semear, Café Joyeux and Reshape Ceramics. In this way, the consultancy shows once again that these kinds of events are always very well received and that it is possible to help energise associations by giving them the chance to sell their products and the resources they need to continue developing their essential work in the community where they operate.
"We would like to thank everyone who visited the JLL Christmas solidarity market and contributed to the growth of these organisations. The spirit shown by everyone is truly inspiring and reflects JLL's commitment to maintaining a positive role in the community," concludes Patrícia Araújo, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at JLL.
JLL aims to make this solidarity initiative an annual tradition, reinforcing its commitment to making a difference and promoting the Christmas spirit through sharing and solidarity.
