2020 brought ups and downs for all of us, but we were still able to make further progress towards our goal of making the world a little greener – together. We could not have done it without our suppliers, dealers and customers, and so we would like to end this year by thanking all of you.
For three years now, instead of sending Christmas gifts to our dealers we've been helping people in need, because we believe it is important to give something back to the community. This aligns with our vision to look at the bigger picture. Our dealers greet this gesture with great appreciation and so have made it possible for us to do this year after year.
This year, we're helping children in need here in Austria. Children lose their homes every day all around the globe for reasons they cannot influence. From one second to the other, their future is marked by violence, hunger, poverty, disease and fear. The pandemic made it clear that we don't have to look to the other side of the world to find people that need help, but that they can be right next door. Therefore, we decided to donate to SOS-Kinderdorf.
SOS-Kinderdorf is a charitable organization that supports children in need by offering them a safe and loving home in dignity and warmth, for a better future. Together with the support of their donors, the organization is active in 136 countries around the world.
Our donation sponsors one house in the SOS-Kinderdorf in Stübing, Austria, giving them the chance to grow up in a loving and safe environment. The money goes to meeting daily needs, ensuring medical care and allowing the children to complete school. Additionally, all the children living in the house received board games, which should bring them joy.
We believe that everyone deserves a healthy and safe life, and so for us it's a personal matter to be part of this project. Again, we would like to thank our dealers for supporting us with this, as well as our suppliers and customers for working with us to make the best of this year, even if we know it wasn't always easy.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy holidays together with your loved ones.
