This past weekend (January 16-18) surely has been a big stepping-stone for our humble, yet boldly strong-willed organization as we got to indirectly take part in one of Luxembourg’s biggest fairs, the Luxexpo Vakanzefoire. Dedicated to traveling and tourism, this fair is all about vacations and every year any visitors can participate in reverse auctions of products, services, local and international wellness and vacation trips offered by the exposing businesses , with an objective to raise money for a selected philanthropic organization.
And as we are happy to announce, this year, “MPG Responsibility Now!” had the extraordinary privilege of being that organization and thus the recipient of these incredible, most generous proceeds that had been collected.
During 3 days, an unbelievable number of 25 companies had agreed to the fun adventure of auctioning a variety of vacations, trips, packages and excursions among the visitors of the fair. The thing that made these reverse auctions even more fun than regular auctions was that instead of selling their product to the highest bidder, they sold it to the lowest. Yes, you read that right. They started with the actual price for the package and lowered the price until the first bidder would raise their hands. Honestly, how fun is that!
We here at MPG Responsibility Now! could not be more pleased about this event and were truly delighted when Luxexpo’s very own director, Mr. Jean-Michel Collignon himself handed us the final check at the end of the fair on January 18th.
We thus wanted to express our deepest thankfulness to Luxexpo for having chosen us for this great event, as well as all the 25 companies who so benevolently agreed to participate: We feel truly valued, are incredibly honored and deeply touched by your efforts and support, and we couldn’t thank you enough.
But here’s a start:
THANK YOU !
