This year's creative campaign has been "Making things change is not a matter of luck." and it mains to make a call to the involvement and collaboration of people to end poverty, malnutrition, unemployment, loneliness of the elderly or gender violence.

The Golden Draw has distributed more than seven million euros in up to 11,700 prizes. This year, in addition, the Red Cross has raffled 3 solidarity trips to get to know first hand some of the projects that the humanitarian institution in Spain develops in favor of the most vulnerable groups.
