PRAGUE (March 6, 2022) – Autofox expanded its company vehicle fleet with blue off-road Land Rover Defender UNICEF cars this week. Following the current trends, the company bought them online, namely in the Czech online store eShop.unicef.cz. In addition to scale car models, it also offers dozens of other items in three categories (Gifts for Life, Dolls, UNICEF Goods).

„We bought all the vehicles in stock. We have acquired them as assets, although we know that leasing companies can prepare an operating lease calculation very quickly. The reason is simple, we do not intend to keep them and we will send them further within the circular economy,“ Marek Balla, Managing Director of Autofox, said.

Autofox is considering a number of options for dealing with the new fleet. „We would like to enlarge some of them with the help of Mr. Tau and send them on a humanitarian mission to the Ukrainian border to join the cars that are already operating there. By tuning upgrade of another part and auctioning then donate the proceeds to help Ukraine as well. The rest will be donated to Ukrainian children,“ Marek Balla outlined, adding that Autofox is also open to other proposals, such as involve automotive companies in the tuning action.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is part of the United Nations (UN). It deals with the protection and improvement of children's living conditions and the support of their all-round development. A few days ago, UNICEF announced a crisis fundraiser to help Ukraine. A number of other non-profit organizations are also helping in the area, such as the consortium Help Ukraine (PomahejUkrajine.cz).

Mr. Tau is a character from a children's television series and several feature films, in which he embarks on large and small adventures and fulfills every children's wish. He is characterized by a magic bowler hat, an umbrella, a classy tailcoat and a shy smile. The series can be viewed on the Czech Television internet broadcast (CeskaTelevize.cz/porady/898388-pan-tau).

As part of the Autofox Helps CSR program, Autofox will also temporarily include news from companies and organizations in the automotive industry that are helping the situation in Ukraine in some way in its information service Autofox News. Typically, these will be public news, i.e. texts in unchanged form, and thus published under the sub-label Autofox Public News.

„I believe we can inspire other companies to help mitigate the effects of the war which affects millions of Ukrainian children,“ Marek Balla concluded a message intended not only for children.
