Total Croatia News

The stars will donate 500,000 kuna.

The new promotional video of the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) features a number of famous Croatian athletes, artists and celebrities, who took part in the filming without financial compensation. Therefore, the HTZ has secured the amount of 500,000 kuna for humanitarian purposes, and each participant has the opportunity to donate their share to a charity of their choice. Luka Modrić, Mario Mandžukić, Dejan Lovren, Dario Šarić and Maksim Mrvica have already done so, reports Jutarnji List on December 21, 2017.

Luka Modrić has decided to support the activities of the Autism Association in Zadar, Mario Mandžukić donated money to the Regoč Association of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities in Slavonski Brod. Dejan Lovren supported the Association for the Improvement of the Quality of Life of Poor Children “Little Dragon” from Zagreb, while Maksim Mrvica donated the money to the Šubićevac Centre for Education in Šibenik. Dario Šarić decided to divide 50,000 kuna among several institutions, the Association of Blind Persons of Šibenik-Knin County, the Association for Helping Children with Disabilities “Source of Love”, the Aurora Association of People with Disabilities, the Association for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities, the Centre for Rehabilitation of the Roman family, and the Children’s Home at Nazor Street in Zagreb.

The Croatian Olympic Committee has also recognised this project of the Croatian National Tourist Board. It has awarded the special prize for the most successful sports promoters of Croatia in the world to top athletes who took part in the filming of the video – footballers Luka Modrić, Ivan Rakitić, Mario Mandžukić, Mateo Kovačić, Dejan Lovren, basketball player Dario Šarić and tennis player Marin Čilić.

“I would like to thank once again everybody who took part in the video and readily responded to the invitation of the Croatian National Tourist Board,” said director of the HTZ Main Office Kristjan Staničić, stressing that he was extremely proud of the fellowship of the entire team which enabled this project to be very successful in promotional terms and, at the same time, to achieve its humanitarian goals.

The new HTZ promotional video was filmed on recognizable locations in Croatia with the aim of further positioning Croatia on the international market, but also with the objective of promoting unique forms of tourist offer, such as cultural and historical heritage, gastronomy, active travel, nautical tourism, natural beauties and other segments of the Croatian tourism. So far, the new promotional video has been seen by over seven million people just on the social network profiles of the Croatian National Tourist Board.
