Christmas raffle for children’s charity Herzenssache e.V.
Even in a society that is considered socially stable like Germany there are children who need our help. That is why the children’s aid organisation Herzenssache for children in need was founded in 2000 under the patronage of Baden-Württemberg’s former Prime Minister Lothar Späth in Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. Her-zenssache is an organisation of SWR (Südwest Rundfunk - South West German Radio), SR (Saarländischer Rundfunk – Saarland Radio) and Sparda Bank and conducted 475 projects for children in need in 2010.
The donations are used to help children wherever they need medical and psychological treatment or care as well as for mentors in schools or professional training. Further offers such as free midday meals, emergency overnight accommodation, neighbourhood assis-tance groups, leisure projects and drama and sports groups are to provide support and give children a brighter future again.
Once again this year, according to their tradition, the group of companies RELINEEUROPE and ISOCOS will make donations for charitable purposes. At the an-nual Christmas party of our group of companies staff members could buy tickets for a raffle with attractive prizes and take part in an auction. Prizes were provided in the form of cash donations and gifts from business partners of the two companies. As a special highlight, four particularly valuable prizes were to be had at the auction, including an LED flat screen smart TV and a football jersey signed by the entire team of soccer Bundesliga club 1st FC Kaiserslautern. The proceeds of our event and donations made directly by our partners to the children’s charity Herzenssache e.V. generated a total of €3.870.
We would most warmly like to thank all the many people who provided help or donations and contributed to the success of the raffle and auction with their kind support!
