In JYSK, we get involved in a lot of projects around the world where we sponsor, donate, or help in whichever way we can. Here is a quick overview of some of the more recent initiatives.  

Denmark

JYSK is a proud sponsor of Parasport in various countries. This year, JYSK Denmark hosted a competition in all danish stores, where customers could buy a lottery ticket with prizes such as gift cards for JYSK or even a car. The gathered amount ran up to almost one million DKK, which was donated to Parasport Denmark.

Bulgaria

JYSK helped the NGO JAMBA furniture a career centre for people with disabilities or as the Co-founder, Joana Koleva, prefers to call “diverse abilities”. The centre works as a place where they can get help with learning skills required for the job market and thereby find work. Now this takes place in a nice environment furnished with JYSK sofas, shelves, coffee tables, desks, armchairs, etc.

Romania

JYSK Romania donated money to the NGO Casa Bună, an organisation which provides educational support for children from vulnerable families. The money was used to organise nine “JYSK camps”, where in total 83 children attended.

The purpose of the camps was to teach the children about healthy living habits. Every child spent one week in the JYSK Camp learning under close supervision of volunteers. The sponsorship will continue in the next school year.

Norway

JYSK Norway recently donated scholarships worth 25000 NOK each to three parasport athletes, who have worked hard to become even better at their sports. The money will support their further training.

Croatia

JYSK Croatia has started a new project called “JYSK for my green city” aimed at providing local communities with more green areas by for example planting trees or cleaning up a local park. Markarska in Croatia was the first city where JYSK in collaboration with city representatives decided to help. JYSK donated trees which employees and volunteers spend their free time planting in November 2021. JYSK employees were rewarded with a day off. The project will continue in other local communities in Croatia where JYSK operates.
