The “Donate your deposit” project initiated by the trainees was a complete success: After more than a year, the proceeds of €1,000 were now donated to the Stuttgart children’s and youth hospice.
A year ago, the trainees at Mackevision called on their colleagues to dispose of their returnable bottles in specially provided collection containers throughout the offices and donate their bottle deposits to a good cause. The trainees regularly emptied the containers, returned the bottles and collected the deposits. This was the birth of the “Donate your deposits” internal project.
“The donation campaign was very well received by our colleagues. Sometimes we could barely keep up with the number of bottles we had to return”, Francesca Arturi, commercial trainee at Mackevision and project manager of the campaign, is happy to report. “We achieved a total of €1.000 which we donated to the children’s and youth hospice Stuttgart after this organization won our internal vote.
The children’s and youth hospice Stuttgart can currently care for up to eight children. They receive individual care and support, oriented on their specific needs. The children have access to a variety of facilities such as a creative room, a room for relaxation and music therapy, a movement area, a Snoezelen room along with a movement pool. The aim is to create a place for children and young adults where they can feel at home and be together with their families.
The in-patient hospice is funded by donations and volunteer help as only the children’s day is financed by the health insurance companies. That is why Mackevision’s trainees will continue collecting donations in the future with their “Donate your deposit” campaign and support the children’s and youth hospice by volunteering their assistance.
