November 2016 - Christmas donation to "Rainbows - for children in stormy times"
This year's Christmas donation goes to the „Rainbows“ association. This association operates almost all over Ausria and helps children and young people in stormy times - through separation, divorce or the death of close caregivers. The children learn to communicate and process grief due to separation and loss experiences, so that life in the changed family situation can be shaped positively (excerpt from the model).
From the vatious donation options, we have decided to sponsor a group as well as an individual child. The support of the Rainbows group not only supports the children of this group, but also ensures quality assurance measures such as supervision and further training for employees. A group consists of children of the same age and similarly affected children/ adolescents and meets a total of 14 times for 1,5 hours within six months. This achieves the most sustainable success possible.
You can find more information about the work of the association on its Website.
Dezember 2015 - Christmas donation for "Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker" (Society for Threatened People)
Also this year we have donated a four-digital amount for people who are not doing as well as we are here in Austria.
The decision was made in favor of the "Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker" (Society for Threatened People) and their project milk for refugee children: They want to provide a herd of cows to the people who have fled from the Syrian war zone in the refugee camps around Syria (Turkey, Lebanon). Those affected are partly able to take care of themselves, take responsibility and regain a piece of their dignity. The association asked what those affected wanted and it came out that women and children in particular have a special wish: a cow!
For families, cows are not just food but also activity. You have to take care of the animal, therefor you get fresh milk every day. This is probably not an everyday request for a human rights organization but the GfbV has decided to use donations to finance some cows and also to create and organize the environment for them such as hay and a stable for the cattle. In cooperation with local farmers, they ensure that the know-how required for animal husbandry is available. For more information, see www.gfbv.at
Jänner 2015 - Donation for "Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker (Society for Threatened People)
The Society for Threatened People (GfbV) Austria was founded on February 13th, 1985 as an association based in Vienna. As an independent international human rights organization, the GfbV stands up for persecuted minorities and indigenous masses.
A call has recently been issued to help those people in the Philippines who lost their belongings in a typhoon a year ago and have now been hit again by a typhoon.
In order to support the Socity for Threatend People in Austria with,
⦁ clean drinking water
⦁ Tarpaulins, blankets, medication, hygiene items
⦁ and building materials for the construction of emergency shelters
to provide for the victims of the disaster, we have decided to donate a three-digit sum.

January 2011 - Support Licht für die Welt
Press release of ‚Licht für die Welt’ on 31.1.2011:
Give eyesight for a birthday
"I often don't know what to give friends for their birthday. That is why I asked my guests for my 50th birthday, instead of buying a present for me to donate to the Austrian aid organization ‚Licht für die Welt’“, explained Klaus Fiebich a business trustee from Graz.
Around 100 friends, relatives and employees will come to the Murinsel in Graz on Decemer 7th to celebrate Klaus Fiebich's birthday. They gratefully accepted his gift proposal and donated a total of 1.600 euros to ‚Licht für die Welt’. Klaus Fiebich rounds the amount up to 2.000 euros and is happy that ‚Licht für die Welt’ can now enable 66 eye-saving operations on cataracts. Because such an operation in a developing country costs an average of only 30 euros.
„I decided to donate to ‚Licht für die Welt’ for two reasons: On the one hand my colleagues and I are affected in a certain way: Many of us are short-sighted and it is very important to see clearly, when working with monitors, says the man from Graz. „And on the other hand I know the ophthalmologist Dr. Gerhard Schuhmann has been working for a long time as a volunteer board member for r ‚Licht für die Welt’. I therefore know firsthand that ‚Licht für die Welt’ enables very meaningful aid projects. For the birthday party, Dr. Gerhard Schuhmann unfortunately did not come because he was still on a project in Northeast India that day and trained local ophtalmologist there.

Dezember 2006 - Support for children's cancer aid
For years it has been important to us to provide financial supporrt to aid organizations. For this reason, we largely forego gifts to business partners and employees at Christmas. This year we decided to donate to the Styrian Children's Cancer Aid. This association supports affected parents in the treatment and care of their children with cancer.
Dezember 2005 - Support Foundation Children's Dream
For several years we have been supporting various aid organizations or social institutions with a donation. By not sending Christmas cards or the usual attentions and gifts for business partners and employees, we are able to support committed organizations year after year. This year we decided to support the Foundation Children's Dream. This foundation is committed to fulfilling the greatest wishes of the heart for seriously ill and handicapped children in Austria. It helps unbureaucratically where the parents are denied the financial and organizational possibilities. This year we dedicate our donation to 8 year old David from Styria to buy a therapy dog, because David has suffered from spastic diplegia since he was born and is dependent on a wheelchair.
