We worked hard to make this action possible and we are committed to continuing our social responsibility and helping to make some lives a little less difficult. It was great to see the amount of people that came together around this idea and today we feel that we have fulfilled our objective », he adds.


This Antarte project provided the guests with moments of fun socialization, artistic inspiration and awareness to help others and, to the children and families of the Centro Materno Infantil do Hospital de Santo António, a new space, with a new spirit, thus realizing the motto “Decorate to Humanize”.
