Merry Christmas from STEIN

The days are getting shorter, the air is getting colder and all over town Christmas markets have popped up. It’s undeniable: Christmas is right around the corner and the year is coming to an end.

For us 2016 has been a successful year for which we would like to sincerely thank our clients and business partners.

But with all the joyful anticipation of spending Christmas with our loved ones we should not forget to think about those who are less fortunate.
Thus we again decided to donate to a good cause rather than giving presents.

This year our contribution goes to Hamburg’s play-mobile “Falkenflitzer”. A mobile gaming center that has been visiting children and teens from underprivileged boroughs since 1993. Due to the current need they are especially focussing on refugee camps at the moment. Even though the subject has lost some of the media’s interest it is still very topical.

On a weekly cycle the colourfully painted mobile visits eight of Hamburg’s refugee camps and brings a little joy and welcome distraction to the children. Whether it is a bouncy house, a game of hockey, crafting or singing: every child finds something to enjoy and feels welcome in the community.

I agreement with “Falkenflitzer” we decided to support the play-mobile with a donation in kind.
We ordered and produced giant outdoor board games at the sheltered workshop “Rhoda Werkstatt” for the kids and teens to frolic around with.
Working with the sheltered workshop allowed us to help two good causes at once. Which feels twice as good.

We wish all our clients and partners a Merry Christmas and look forward to the coming year with them!
