KPN asked to donate XS4All brand to charity for disabled children

Monday 22 July 2019 | 14:17 CET | News
The Dutch association for disabled children, NSGK has called on KPN to donate its brand name XS4All. KPN announced earlier that it plans to phase out the brand, and the charity said it could be used for its next fund-raising campaign this autumn. The group already made a video featuring a child in a wheelchair wearing a yellow tshirt with the XS4All logo in a similar style to the KPN brand's own design.
