During the past month of December, Prosegur Alarms carried out its Christmas campaign – “Prosegur Protect Christmas” -, which celebrated the first edition worldwide.
The campaign aims to support social causes with a donation of more than 36 thousand euros and, in this edition, the two social organizations that participated in the campaign were SOS Children’s Villages International and YMCA – Young Men’s Christian Association.

To this end, it seeks to cooperate with recognized causes and generate a positive impact on society.
Thus, Prosegur Alarms invited its customers to choose, through voting throughout the month of December, the cause with which they felt most connected. Voting was carried out through the website prosegurprotegelanavidad.com, with a total of 3,914 votes registered, of which 804 went to the YMCA and 3,110 to the organization SOS Children’s Villages International. The final result is the sum of votes from Prosegur Alarms customers in Portugal, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. In this sense, the prize was divided between the two organizations as follows: €23,884 for SOS Children’s Villages International and €12,860 for the YMCA.
