  2. Charity Foundation Aitan Lapsi and Alexela Energia are co-operating

    Charity Foundation Aitan Lapsi and Alexela Energia have signed a co-operation agreement with the goal of supporting the Foundation and offer theatre experience in co-operation with the Estonian Association of Performing Arts Institutions (EETEAL) to even more children.

    Today, Alexela Energia, a member of Alexela Group and Charity Foundation Aitan Lapsi signed a co-operation agreement. From now on, everyone has the opportunity to select an electricity package whereby any electricity or natural gas invoice is making a donation to the Aitan Lapsi Charity Foundation. The donations are being used towards offering theatre visits to Estonian children from disadvantaged families.

    „During the five years of our existence, Aitan Lapsi with the assistance of environmentally and socially minded people has collected and directed to charity more than 400 000 €. The additional opportunity to donate in co-operation with Alexela Energia makes it possible for us to bring joy to even more children who otherwise cannot afford theatre tickets,“ said the Member of the Council of Aitan Lapsi Charity Foundation Rauno Raal.

    Thanks to the co-operation agreement all the clients of Alexela Energia can note the donation amount on their electricity or natural gas invoice. The money thus raised will be given to children in need via the joint project of Charity Foundation Aitan Lapsi and EETEAL. It is the sixth season of co-operation between the Charity Foundation and EETEAL and close to 57 000 children have been to theatre thanks to people’s kind donations.

    „Alexela has been contributing to Estonian cultural life and this year we have been awarded the Friend of Culture title by the Minister of Culture,“ told the chairman of Alexela Group Andreas Laane. „Co-operation with the Aitan Lapsi Charity Foundation is giving even to the youngest of theatre friends an opportunity to enjoy Estonian theatre culture,“ was Andreas Laane pleased.

    Alexela Energia is the largest energy seller in Estonia based on private capital. The history of the company goes back to 1964, when Alexela Energia’s Reola liquid gas terminal was established. As of today, Alexela Energia is offering innovation-based simple and economical solutions on the markets of liquified gas and electricity as well as natural gas. The company continues extensive growth also on the current year by increasing both turnover and the number of clients by more than 50%.

    The Children’s Charity Foundation started the „Aitan Lapsi“ project in 2011 in co-operation with Eesti Pandipakend, Tomra Baltic and others in order to offer cultural experience to children. Since then people have donated almost 500 000 with the help of RVMs and more than 56 600 children in need have visited theatres.

    Anyone can help children: one only has to return their empties to an RVM and press the Aitan Lapsi donation button. It is possible to donate in 328 RVMs all over Estonia. The largest retailer chains that have joined our project are Prisma, Selver, Rimi, COOP Maksimarket, Konsum, Stockmann, Kaubamaja, Grossi Toidukaubad and Keila TÜ.
