Joinery with a heart
At Durach in the Oberallgäu, only 50 kilometres away from the humedica head office at Kaufbeuren, Wolfgang Gruber and his team create individual wooden furniture and doors. On the occasion of the15th company anniversary, which fittingly took place on the „Day of joinery“ in the beginning of November, the enterprise opened its workshop doors to offer interested people an insight in their work and, last but not least, to combine the festivity with a good cause.
Both the revenue of sold food and drink and the donations provided by visitors for the crafting of smaller woodworks were offered to humedica. Thus 1.500 Euros were collected for worldwide aid interventions.
The humedica representative Heinke Rauscher participated in the event and offered all guests the possibility to learn more about the activities of the aid agency. Wolfgang Gruber and his team deliberately decided not to dedicate their donation to a special cause to enable humedica to use the money where it was needed most.
humedica would like to take this opportunity to express its heartfelt thanks to Wolfgang Gruber and his team as well as to all visitors of the event on the 7th of November 2015.
Give a donation instead of a gift: the Johannes Kiehl KG takes part in the Christmas initiative
What to give to business partners, if there are so many different expectations? And how to demonstrate social commitment and support people in need as a company?
The Johannes KIEHL KG situated in the Upper Bavarian town Odelzhausen has found a sensible answer to these questions and opted this year to „Give a donation instead of a gift“. General manager Johannes Kiehl presented generous 20.000 Euros as a Christmas donation to humedica employee Heinke Rauscher and stated that he considered this donation a meaningful commitment to ameliorate the living conditions of suffering people.
humedica helpers were also happy about a donation in kind from the portfolio of the manufacturer of cleaning and hygiene products, large quantities of which are especially needed in medical aid interventions: disinfection agents worth 5.000 Euros now supply the needs of several humedica partner hospitals.
The idea of giving a donation instead of presents is not new to the Johannes KIEHL KG that assisted humedica with more than 20.000 Euros also last year. „We are really glad that the Kiehl company supports our work this year again. With this repeated Christmas donation the company lives the heart of Christmas, charity.“, humedica general manager Wolfgang Groß words his thanks fittingly.
In the name of all aid recipients also the rest of the humedica team would like to join in and thank the KIEHL-enterprises sincerely.
The sheepworld AG supports again the „Present from the heart“ campaign
To render as many suffering children as possible happy – that is the core of the large Christmas package campaign „Present from the heart“, which humedica organises since 2003 with the support of numerous private individuals, kindergartens, schools and companies. This year the SHEEPWORLD AG from Ursensollen in the Upper Palatinate takes already part for the second time.
By donating various gifts the company offers the helpers in the humedica hall the possibility to complement lacking articles in the parcels. So the rewarded children can for example look forward to mugs, bracelets or cuddly toys from sheepworld.
Also last year the company proved its sympathy with girls and boys in need and supported the „Present from the heart“ campaign with donations in kind worth more than 2.200 Euros.
„For many years now the SHEEPWORLD AG stands for gifts. Millions of people all over Europe treat each other every year and put a smile on their faces. Now it is up to us to give a present and to make someone happy – especially children. We therefore decided to support the „Present from the heart“ initiative this year again.“, explains sheepworld representative Nadine Saalborn the motivation behind the company´s engagement.
On behalf of all the indigent children, who will receive a „Present from the heart“ this year, humedica would like to express its sincere thanks to the SHEEPWORLD AG.
Sports for the good cause
When temperatures outside get colder and most of us would prefer to stay comfortably in front of a lit fireplace, Günter Hildebrandt does not even think about shifting down during the cold season. Week for week the Kaufbeuren sportsman heads the cardiac group and four gymnastics classes of the local Kneipp club and thus does not only himself but also others some good.
On the occasion of his 80th birthday in October this year, Günter Hildebrandt brought a humedica donation box to his cardiac group and instead of gifts asked for a donation for people in need. Successfully: When a few days ago the sporty pensioner brought the collecting can to the humedica headquarters and opened it together with general manager Wolfgang Groß, he was happy to see that the members of his group donated more than 300 Euros.
Why he chose to support humedica, Hildebrandt explains as follows: „Through my cardiac group I got to know Wolfgang Groß personally. I am convinced that humedica will use the money to help people who really need it.“
humedica would like to say a warm thank you to Günter Hildebrandt and all donators of the cardiac group Kaufbeuren.
