SPAR Austria’s Stickermania campaign has again been a huge success. Particularly popular this year were the sticker collection books and four traditional card games. Children in need benefit from the campaign’s success because SPAR donated €30,000 to Save a Child. In total, SPAR has donated €210,000 to Save a Child from the proceeds of the Stickermania campaigns over 12 years.

Non-profit association Save a Child is dedicated to caring for socially vulnerable children, arranging sponsorships and supporting families in need. In addition to public funds, private donations are necessary to finance the work of the association. 

“Help on equal terms is even more important in times of crisis like this one. Through the generous donation from SPAR Austria, we can offer the best possible support in every federal state of the country”, said Karl Semlitsch, President of Save a Child Austria. 

Collecting stickers for a good cause

This year’s SPAR Stickermania, the Austria edition, provided even more fun and brought a welcome change to everyday life at home during the lockdown.

The twelfth Stickermania campaign took enthusiastic sticker collectors on an exciting scavenger hunt. Based on the motto ‘Austria is so beautiful’, main characters Oskar and Bo stayed in Austria to explore the country. In addition to the well-known collecting fun, there were scented stickers and four card games. 

SPAR Austria Board member Markus Kaser commented on the donation linked to the popular campaign: “The long-term cooperation with Save a Child Austria is very important to us. We are pleased that through the Stickermania campaign, SPAR can contribute to help children in difficult circumstances.”
