A big Thank You for all customers, suppliers and friends for a great 2018!

Instead of sending postcards or fancy gifts, we rather donate to kids in need around the world, supporting small local projects run by people that we know and trust:

Streetkids project in Ghana – Chance For Children

Ecological village development in Bolivia – Pro Huancarani

Schooling and supporting kids in India – GandhiCare

Check out the projects above and maybe also consider donation. Already a small amount can make a big difference in the life of the unprivileged kids so help us to help!
