Pippo Association For Premature Children

Who are we?

Pippo Association was established on December 9, 2011 by Marcello Passalia.
Marcello Passalia was born in Milan, Italy but has lived in Denmark for 10 years.
The idea to establish Pippo Association came from Marcello´s experience with having a premature child. Marcello´s son Filippo is a premature child who has overcome a lot of challenges from being born to early. He was born in 2004 weighing just 1400 grams. Today he is 8 years old and after years with many surgeries and challenges, he is a living example of a true fighter. The name Pippo Association is short for Filippo and is a dedication to his name.

What do we do?

Marcello makes events on behalf of Pippo Association where he has put together personalities from the worlds of music, sports and art and their support is fundamental in order to organize events that will be talked about – with the intention to direct focus toward premature children and raise money for the association. Pippo Association is a 100 % non-profit Danish association. The money raised for Pippo Association primarily comes from the events that Marcello makes. Twice a year Marcello makes events where he personally donates all or a percentage  of the profits to Pippo Association.
