Supporting a good cause is at the very heart of our ambitions. Throughout the years we have carefully researched and selected charities that are close to our heart and deserve special recognition.

Charity Partner 2018

The German children’s cancer charity is committed to support children, who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families and helps them to improve their quality of live. Their everyday work comprises counselling, accompanying families through their journey to recovery and the support through social funds should families run into financial difficulties.

The German children’s cancer charity supports and finances patient-oriented research projects in order to increase the young patients’ chances of a full recovery, ensure safe treatments and find new therapies so that long term implications can be reduced to a minimum or completely eliminated.

They also established the ‘Waldpiraten-Camp’ which is located close to Heidelberg and is unique in Germany. It’s a rehabilitation, recreation and leisure camp which helps children to regain their strength and build-up their courage after winning the battle with cancer so they can return to their everyday and happy life.
