The Korus group has been supporting the Coline en Ré charity for a few years now. Marc Billet, a managing partner of the Korus group, is the charity’s administrator and has been an active member since 2011.
To raise funds, the charity organises high-quality concerts given by internationally renowned artists who donate of their time. The money raised by the sale of tickets for these events is used to help children who are in danger around the world.
In order to constantly fund new projects, Coline en Ré also organises other initiatives such as La Boitadon, where donation boxes are distributed to companies, and Les Virtuoses du Coeur (virtuosos of the heart), a national piano-playing competition.
Each year, Marc Billet promotes the charity’s concerts and invites his network to attend them. He has actually gotten personally involved in the charity by accompanying the teams of volunteers to Cambodia while a school extension was being built. This extension now contains a dormitory where children who live too far away can sleep during the week, and a dentist’s office providing free services to the villagers.
What’s more, each year in September, Korus organises a fundraising day called “Garden en Ré”. Clients, partners and suppliers are invited to a fun and festive day in the countryside near Paris.
In 2016, over €120,000 were raised and this money is now used to help children in some of the world’s poorest countries: Cambodia, Chad, Afghanistan, Madagascar and Haiti.
