The crowdfunding campaign ‘Ilumina Sonrisas’ (Light Up Their Smiles) was chosen as one of the ten best social initiatives  of 2014 by the Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia (Commitment and Transparency Foundation) and the magazine “Compromiso Empresarial” (Corporate Commitment). The activity rewarded, which began at the end of last year, has as its goal to provide help to nongovernmental organizations that perform their work of cooperation in areas with energy deficiencies.

The selection of the ten best social initiatives by the Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia  and  “Compromiso Empresarial” was instituted three years ago and searches among the activities  carried out by companies,  organizations and public administrations  for those that stand out and because of  their originality, innovation, complexity or simplicity become catalysts for social change.

Bornay’s crowdfunding campaign  ‘Ilumina Sonrisas’, selected as one of  the best of the year, seeks the donation to nongovernmental organizations of more than 100 units of the firm’s latest product, PinLite, a portable device that provides energy. The company commits  itself to covering the costs of transportation to the offices  of the corresponding NGO in  Spain. Furthermore,  it will provide each device at below the cost price so that donations can be more plentiful.

At the present time we are collaborating with África Esperanza, SOS África, Guaguacuna, Project Ditunga and Shuma, but those  who join  the initiative and cover the total cost of a  PinLite can send it  the  NGO of their choice.

“We are very pleased with the choice of  our campaign as one of the 10 social initiatives of the year in our country and would like to thank the Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia and the magazine   ‘Compromiso Empresarial’ for having considered us.

At Bornay we are very conscious of the need to apply social responsibility policies, and for this reason we have always worked for the environment and the most deprived groups, and, especially, to comply with our motto: taking energy to where there  is none.

 ‘Ilumina sonrisas’ is a pretty initiative  that combines the work of the  company, whose main element is our latest product, with our as well as encouraging society’s awareness and involvement,” commented Juan de Dios, General Director of Bornay.
