We like to share our success with people whoe are not so well off. We therefore regularly support the following charitable organizations:
Focus in 2016: »Ein Herz für Kinder«
As a supplier of colored pencils and lead pencils, we hopefully have been a pleasure for many children. But we know, of course, how many underprivileged children and children who are in need there are ... so we wanted to get involved especially in this direction and donated a 5-digit amount to the organization »Ein Herz für Kinder«. »Ein Herz für Kinder« gets involved where children are in need - worldwide. With our donation we want to say: THANK YOU!
Because sustainability and environemental protection are very important to us as well: › http://www.greenpeace.com/
We want to help innocent people who have lost everything due to desasters: › http://www.aktion-deutschland-hilft.de/en/
Medicins sans Frontieres
Standard for us, for many unattainable -
Medical assistance where it is necessary!
We also want to support regional organizations, especially when it comes to children: › http://kinderkiste.hammelburg.de/
Because we care about children all over the world! We want a society that protects children's rights and treats children with dignity and respect:
We would like to help fight cancer in all forms! › https://www.krebshilfe.de/
Of course we do not forget our four-legged friends:
Donations in kind
By producing millions of pens sometimes surplus productions and defect productions happen. We donate 100% of them to non-profit organizations:
Fulda stellt sich quer e.V.
»Fulda stellt sich quer e.V.« is an association that fights agains racism, exclusion, xenophobia and homophobia. At the intercultural week in Fulda 2017 they represented themselves with information stands and events such as a raffle and auctions. For their raffle we supported »Fulda stellt sich quer« with a pencil and colored pencil donation, to fund their further projects.
Christmas in a Shoebox
»Christmas in a Shoebox« is part of »Operation Christmas Child« – the biggest gift campaign worldwide for children in need. Not all children know happiness or love in the form of care via presents. Most of the affected families cannot afford the money for toys or painting materials. We supported »Christmas in a Shoebox« with a pencil and colored pencil donation – because colored pencils help to design the world in a more colorful way!
Not all people can afford necessary items for their household. The new re-opened »Kleiderstube« of the German Red Cross Schorndorf has set itself the task of supporting needy people with clothes, toys and household items at low prices (in many cases at no cost). For the beginning of the school year 2017 we supported the German Red Cross with a pencil and colored pencil donation. Now socially deprived children can call a pencil case with writing utensils as well as a filled School cone their own!
For Valentines Day we supported a project of the 1-2-3 Kinderfonds foundation with 1.402 colored pencils. They were sent to a school in Ghana near Koforidua.
Only if you have paper and pencils, it is possible for children to enjoy learning! And with colored pencils, they can easily put their thoughts and dreams on paper. With that, pencils from defect productions can make children happy.
