We are happy to announce that Courage Book Launch, our educational project developed for Piraeus Bank Romania, has won a Certificate of Excellence for Best Use of Facebook at the 2017 In2 SABRE Awards EMEA.

Courage Book is a children’s story book  based on real courage stories submitted in „Culegătorii de curaj” Facebook app, that aimed to promote courageous ordinary Romanians in 2015.

10 of those stories were rewritten by famous children’s books writer Adina Rosetti and illustrated by talented Alexia Udriște and transformed by Curtea Veche Publishing in a beloved story book that encourages Romanian children to be brave, honest, kind and generous.

After its launch in November 2016, Piraeus Bank and Progress Foundation made it possible for children in over 100 small poor communities all over Romania to have acces to it, by donating volumes of the book to their local libraries.

The SABRE Awards, which recognize Superior Achievement in Branding Reputation & Engagement, attract more than 2,000 entries from across the EMEA region each year, and provide the premier showcase for the best that public relations has to offer, celebrating winning work via their annual awards dinner and via their website, with its vast library of public relations case histories.

The In2 SABREs recognize excellence in various categories of innovation and insight—with an emphasis on content creation—as well as PR agency management and marketing.
