The end of the year, which is a traditional time for various charity events, was in Komerční banka associated with an employees´ "Christmas" photo competition and a charity auction. The ten best pictures were submitted to an intranet online auction organised in January 2012 for both individual employees and teams. The most successful was a picture of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro (on the right), which was auctioned for 230 euros. The auction raised a total of over 1,060 euros.

The KB Jistota Foundation will double this amount and donate the money to the Zdravotní klaun - Clown Doctors civic association, which regularly visits 60 hospitals and seven homes for senior citizens in order to bring laughter and joy to hospitalised children and elderly patients. This association is widely recognised in the Czech Republic for its expertise in the use of humour for health care. Since 2001, Zdravotní klaun has built a stable position, a good reputation and won the support of the general public. Zdravotní klaun is a member of Red Noses International.
