Donations instead of presents

Christmas season is the time for presents – up to now this slogan also applied to the vhf camfacture AG. In 2011, however, vhf refrains for the first time from sending presents to their business partners at the end of the year, in order to make a donation to a charitable organization.

Such a Christmas present is intended as thanks in return for the good cooperation and as a little attention to the recipient. For this purpose the company has a specific budget available. The total accounting not only includes the value of the presents, but also the costs for packaging, logistics and shipping. This effort is not only in a relatively unfavorable proportion to the intrinsic value of the present, but is finally also an impact on the environment.

With the accumulated amount of all presents and logistics, however, a meaningful contribution can be made. A nonprofit organization can achieve a lot with it. In 2011, the vhf camfacture AG has therefore rounded up the saved sum to 5,000 euros and donated it to the forest kindergarten „Räuberhöhle“ in Herrenberg (www.waldkindergarten-herrenberg.de). vhf sees a reasonable sponsoring opportunity in this local initiative, as nature and forest kindergartens strengthen and stabilize the children’s development. Due to permanently being in the nature, the children experience and learn the interdependency with it. In a natural way, the movement and the physical activities of the children are promoted. From this they will benefit even in adulthood.

The executive board and employees of the vhf camfacture AG are pleased that they were able to make a meaningful contribution and hope that the business partners also agree to having contributed to a good cause with the presents intended for them. All customers who receive a consignment of vhf in December anyway, nonetheless get a small present with their consignment.
