Super Blue CampaignCampaigning to combat prejudice against the disabled
LOTTE kicked off its “Super Blue Campaign” in 2014
to combat prejudice against the disabled.
The campaign uses cobalt blue shoelaces as its symbol;
the color represents hope and the act of tying
one’s own shoes represents independence.
The campaign encourages people to wear blue shoelaces to express their support for the disabled and pass along the spirit of independence, sharing and consideration. In addition, in cooperation with Special Olympics Korea, LOTTE has held the “Super Blue Marathon Competition” since 2015. In 2019, more than 9,000 people across the country, including people with disabilities, participated in the Super Blue Campaign, expanding its status as a public marathon event. With the increasing number of disabled participants, the competition has become a sports festival where both able-bodied and disabled people can enjoy.
To celebrate this festive competition, 7-Eleven opens to the public free Seven Café,
where visitors can enjoy snacks and drinks provided by LOTTE Confectionery
and LOTTE Chilsung Beverage.
LOTTE Group will continue its efforts to create a society without prejudice against the disabled,
and asks for your continued attention and support.
Mind Heat 37℃ CampaignFundraising campaign to support heating expenses for the children of the socially neglected
While your normal body temperature is 36.5℃,
the temperature of your heart may rise to 37℃ when you
do something good. Inspired by this imaginative concept,
LOTTE and the Salvation Army have conducted
the Mind Heat 37℃ Campaign together since the winter of 2014
in order to support heating expenses for the underprivileged.
Every December, we gift red muffler knitting kits to those who participate in the donation program for heating expenses via the LOTTE World Tower, LOTTE Mall, and Salvation Army Christmas Kettle websites. Through the campaign, LOTTE is supporting heating expenses for 700 children's welfare facilities, regional childcare centers, and households where grandparents raise their grandchildren.
Donators can make mufflers with the kits and give them
to neighbors or others in need. This enables them to donate twice when they
participate in the Mind Heat 37℃ Campaign.
LOTTE Home Shopping, Sharing Relay - Angel DayThe Sharing Relay Campaign, donating where employees choose
Designed to encourage voluntary participation in corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, the Sharing Relay of LOTTE Home Shopping lets its employees determine whom and how to help.
What makes this campaign more meaningful is that both employees and customers participate together. LOTTE Home Shopping designates every 3rd Saturday as “Angel Day” and saves 1,004 KRW for donations from every shopping order.
As many as 1,720,000 customers have participated in the Sharing Relay since 2014, donating 210 million KRW in the process. The funds are donated to where they are most needed to support the socially neglected, residents in remote areas, and social enterprises.
