Hamburg, November 26, 2015 – Traditionally STEIN decided again this year, instead of making customers Christmas presents, to give a donation for a charitable purpose: in view of the current situation “SpielTiger e.V.” movement, culture and game (www.spieltiger.com) was selected. The association serves the development and distribution of integrated sports, games and leisure facilities, focused on body and movement experience. One focus lies in the implementation of mobile game actions in the field of open child and youth work. Thereby, rooms to play and exercise opportunities for children and adolescents are to be developed and preserved in their direct living environment, especially in socially disadvantaged neighbourhoods and currently in particular in migrants accommodations.
Yesterday, STEIN’s Managing Director Lars Roisch has handed over the donation worth 2,500 Euro in the office of the SpielTiger e.V. to Jan Heidtmann. The donation consisted of a movement-building site – a set from magic boxes and accessories made of birch wood – and 18 pairs of stilts. The movement construction was produced in the Mühlhäuser Werkstätten so that STEIN could support two social organizations at the same time with its donation.
Lars Roisch, Managing Director STEIN: “The SpielTiger e.V. stands up with its work for the needs of children and adolescents in a sustainable manner – even and especially in difficult situations and emergencies – and creates with its gaming actions important conditions for a healthy personality development of children. That is why we want to support this work with our donation purposefully. Because in the context of the current refugee situation it is more important than ever!”
Jan Heidtmann vom Spieltiger e.V.: „We are very happy about the donation from STEIN. The toys are a great support for our work – especially in light of the currently great need for actions for refugee children in Hamburg. On behalf of the children, we say thank you! For them, the magic boxes and stilts are a great way to have some fun in their dreary everyday life in the refugee centers.“
