66 points by Giannis Antetokounmpo - €66,000 by Novibet
For the initiative for autism,
“UniquAll - All Unique-All Equal”!
Giannis Antetokounmpo, the ambassador of Novibet’s social responsibility program, The GiANT Heart, has kicked off the year outstandingly! Giannis scored 35 and 31 points in his first two games of the 2022 regular season against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Detroit Pistons, respectively. In addition to his exceptional performance, there is another purposeful reason for celebrating. Novibet will turn the 66 total points that Giannis Antetokounmpo scored into financial aid, offering €66,000 to the initiative for autism “UniquAll - All Unique-All Equal”!
Novibet and Giannis remain true to their shared values by embracing once again the underprivileged members of our society wholeheartedly. Novibet is committed to creating an inclusive community where children within the spectrum of autism share equal opportunities in our society. Hence, Novibet donates €1,000 for every point that Giannis Antetokounmpo scored at the first two games of Bucks in 2022, to the initiative “UniquAll - All Unique-All Equal.”
On New Year’s Eve, against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Greek-Freak achieved the 27th triple-double of his career with 35 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists, giving a remarkable performance. On the 4th of January, against the Detroit Pistons, we witnessed an equally outstanding performance by Giannis, making a double-double with 31 points and 10 rebounds, even though the Bucks were not victorious in that game.
As Giannis Antetokounmpo quoted: “My mindset before every game is always the same: Give my best to help my team win! At the first game, we made it; at the second, we did not. The contribution to the initiative “UniquAll - All Unique-All Equal” was always on my mind during the first two games. I feel more than excited to have provided support to children within the spectrum of autism and helped an organisation with such a great purpose. It is a matter of high significance that dramatically affects the future of younger generations. It is everyone’s obligation to actively support young people, create the conditions for them to be equal members of society, and make their dreams come true. We are responsible for co-creating an inclusive society where they can grow and reach their full potential. Within the framework of the purposeful partnership we have established with Novibet, more social impact initiatives will follow, always setting the significant needs of our community first”.
Dimitris Papanikolaou, the national Greek ex-basketball player and the man who brought "UniquAll - All Unique - All Equal"into life, mentioned: “Many thanks to those who believe in us and stand by us with actions. Novibet, through the CSR initiative "The GiANT Heart," was the first company to support our effort. Giannis, thank you! Your 66 points will bring much-needed joy to many children. We feel proud to have Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nick Galis by our side! We keep on giving our best.”
Vassias Berkowitz, Chief Marketing Officer at Novibet, stated on behalf of the company: “Our main target at Novibet, leaving 2021 behind us, was to launch a social impact activation that would make a real difference. Integrating Giannis’ performance into our program was the key to successful results! Giannis has managed to score 66 points in total in just two games, which have been turned into financial aid of €66,000 by Novibet. We are delighted since with this amount, we significantly support the initiative "UniquAll - All Unique-All Equal,” giving children within the spectrum of autism the opportunity to enjoy the excitement of sports and bring them a bit closer to their dreams.”

About The Giant Heart Community Giving Program
The Love Alliance of Novibet and Giannis Antetokounmpo was established in May 2021 with the aim of substantial and multi-level strengthening of vulnerable social groups and focusing on the implementation of a series of targeted actions, based on the values of social contribution, hope and second chance. Since then, with "The GiANT Heart" vehicle, they have provided significant support to emergency needs in the midst of the health crisis, such as the reinforcement of the equipment of the Children's Oncology Unit "Marianna V. Vardinogianni - ELPIDA" and the immediate offer of temporary housing to those affected by catastrophic fires in Attica this summer.
