"Together we achieved a lot in 2014 and we are very grateful. We would like to share this gratitude," says Dagmar Fritz-Kramer, company director.
So that everyone could have a say in deciding and the campaign could become more tangible, business partners, suppliers and employees, were given a "vote" instead of the usual gifts at Christmas. In this way the recipients could tell us which project should benefit from the amount of 15 Euro per person. To "round up" the donation, our management added an additional amount.
At the check presentation ceremony at our company, Dagmar Fritz-Kramer and Helmut Holl handed over a total amount of 18,000 Euro to four organizations and stressed: "In this way what we have achieved can bear fruit."
Bergwaldprojekt e.V. from Würzburg (a project that supports inter alia forestry in Sonthofen) and Förderkreis Arche Memmingen e.V. (which focusses on supporting the Arche community in Slovenia and the preservation of the workshop building constructed with the help of Baufritz in 2010) were both delighted to receive 4,000 Euro each. The Unterallgäuer Werkstätten GmbH (a workshop with extensive facilities for caring for people with disabilities) and humedica e.V. from Kaufbeuren (here the donation supports Syrian civil war refugees in Lebanon) each received 5,000 Euro.
Walter Lindner from the Förderkreis Arche Memmingen e.V.
"We are grateful for the donation of 4,000 Euro, which we will pass on to the ARCHE community in Zbilje, Slovenia. This is a significant contribution to repay the debt from the purchase of the land on which the disabled workshop is located, which was built and donated by Baufritz along with many helpers."
Wolfgang Beuchel from the Unterallgäuer Werkstätten GmbH
"A big thank you on behalf of all employees of Unterallgäuer Werkstätten for this generous donation. I think it is fantastic that the campaign by Baufritz has made many people aware of passing on your own gratitude."
Heinke Rauscher from humedica e.V.
"We are very grateful for the support from Baufritz that we will use in our project in Lebanon for Syrian refugees. In addition, we are very impressed with the philosophy and business performance of Baufritz."
EV Peter Naumann of Bergwaldprojekt e.V.
"Thank you very much for the great support from Bau-Fritz GmbH & Co. KG. The donation is a significant contribution to natural forestation and the conservation of biodiversity in the Allgäu mountain forest."
