Sarajevo, May 8, 2018 – Intesa Sanpaolo Banka BiH, in partnership with Visa, for the sixth time in a row, initiates the campaign “Inspired by heart” which is aimed at collecting the funds for reconstruction of the primary school in BiH. This year, in the period 1st -31st of May 2018, for any transaction made by Visa Inspire card, regardless of the amount and with no additional fee for cardholders, the Bank will donate 0,10 KM*.
“We are pleased to announce this year’s humanitarian action of the Bank named “Inspired by heart”, which provides us again with an opportunity to do something good and help those who need it most. This is the sixth year that the Bank, with the support of its clients and Visa company, is organizing a noble campaign “Inspired by the heart”. The goal of any socially responsible company is not only to make profit, but also to create better conditions in the community it operates in, and we are exactly doing it by donating 0,10 BAM, from each transaction made by Visa Inspire card, this time for reconstruction of the primary school’s premises. Our clients, who use the respective card, do a good deed in that way, with no additional costs for them“, said Lejla Dizdarević, the Head of PR and Marketing Communication Department of Intesa Sanpaolo Banka BiH.
Vladimir Djordjevic, Country Manager Visa SEE said: “We are proud to partner with Intesa Sanpaolo Banka BiH for the sixth ‘Inspired by Heart’ project and facilitate charitable giving through cashless payments. This project not only brings benefits of cash free lifestyle to the consumers, such as speed, convenience and security, but also creates positive social impact. We believe that this campaign will inspire cardholders to use their cards for everyday purchases and support our goal to deliver better primary school conditions in the country.”
The project “Inspired by Hear” was initially launched in 2013 by Intesa Sanpaolo Banka BiH, and in 2014 the company Visa joined the project. The project “Inspired by Hear” is aimed at motivating the users to choose the everyday cashless payments, since they contribute to the fund of the campaign, even by the smallest transaction, and of those citizens and institutions that need additional support.
Recognizing the importance of this campaign, RSG radio, TV Hayat and portal www.klix.ba joined this project as media partners.
