Sharing makes you happy
The staff donates the kitty, the company doubles the amount

At the beginning of 2019, the management of Heusch/Boesefeldt GmbH decided that the company would completely pay for beverages such as coffee, tea and water. For the employees this meant "Good-bye, tally sheets!" and our kitty trustee was "out of her job". Due to years of constant consumption, the kitty was still full to bursting. What to do with the money?

The staff quickly suggested donating it. After a short discussion, it was decided that everyone should get their share paid out at the Christmas party, and that they could donate it to socially oriented organisations at will.

Five social and humanitarian projects, to which our employees have a personal connection, were selected. The result of the appeal for donations is impressive: 1,610 euros were collected for the following projects:

  •     Children's home in Ghana
  •     Children's home in India
  •     Association supporting schools and well construction in Kenya
  •     Querbeet, a Caritas project that aims to help drug addicts get out of
        addiction by gardening.
  •     WeMove.EU, a platform for online petitions.

The management of Heusch/Boesefeldt was infected by the willingness to donate and doubled the donated amounts, so that a total of 3,220 euros could be transferred to the social projects and facilities.
