OMO and Comfort Break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Collection of Clothes for Donation

OMO and Comfort, Unilever’s leading fabric cleaning and fabric conditioning brands, set the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of clothes for donations through their ‘Share A Touch Of Love This Ramadan’ campaign in UAE in partnership with Emirates Red Crescent. Over 146,000 clothes were collected, washed with OMO and Comfort and donated to the less fortunate with the help of Emirates Red Crescent. The record was made official by Guinness World Records Adjudicator Samer Khallouf.

The collection drive started at the beginning of Ramadan, July 2nd and continued till August 31th, 2014. The donations were collected through in-mall stands where people could drop off their clothes as well as through a direct line where consumers could call to have a representative pick up the apparel from their homes.

“We have been running the “Share a touch of love” campaign for five years now and every year we witness a remarkable increase in the number of people giving back. The Guinness World Record is a testament of the UAE’s generosity and enthusiasm to help the less fortunate,” said Madhusudhan Rao, Vice President of Marketing at Unilever North Africa Middle East, “This campaign is in line with Unilever’s long and rich history in contributing to the society through its business and brands, and increasing its positive social impact by improving people’s lives.” Added Rao.

“We are extremely happy with the response received from the people of the UAE this year. This campaign truly embodies the spirit of giving in Ramadan and is another proof of the great values rooted in the people living in this country. Those donations will help several people in need and we will continue with the help of our partners to support the nations that require our attention and focus on reaching to as many people as we can.  We look forward to another successful partnership with Unilever next year and  to promote the different aspects of humanitarian work that we do.” said Mr. Mohammad Abdullah Alhaj Al Zarouni, General Manager of the Dubai branch of the UAE Red Crescent.
