Corporate DonorsTwo of the world’s leading companies – GlaxoSmithKline and HSBC – have supported our work.
GlaxoSmithKline paid the research and development costs of Zippy’s Friends for many years, as part of its commitment to help people to ‘do more, feel better and live longer.’ The results of this visionary and generous support can be seen in the large numbers of children who are now benefiting from the programme around the world.
HSBC has provided support on three continents. In Asia, The Hongkong Bank Foundation supported the launch of Zippy’s Friends in Hong Kong and Mainland China. In Latin America, HSBC supported Amigos do Zippy in Brazil and is now sponsoring the programme's expansion across Spanish speaking countries, including Argentina, Mexico and Panama. In Europe HSBC Education Trust sponsored the development of this website.
We are very grateful to both GlaxoSmithKline and HSBC, and look forward to working with more companies that are concerned about the wellbeing of children.
