EVERY CONTRIBUTION COUNTS
HECTARE NECTAR: WE NOW SUPPORT THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION BEES
Our support for the "Hektar Nektar" bee conservation initiative, with the joint goal of increasing the bee population in Germany and Austria by ten percent by 2028, is showing great results! We have reached a significant milestone, now providing a home for a total of three quarters of a million bees across our five locations in Germany. This is an increase of 250.000 since 2021.
LITTER CLEARING CAMPAIGN IN FRANKFURT
Numerous colleagues from the Frankfurt office gathered in the afternoon of the 29th September, for their second annual litter clearing campaign. We left the office in great weather, and searched the way to the banks of the Main with eagle eyes. After three hours, Frankfurt had been cleared of quite some mess - and the garbage bags of the Frankfurt helpers were a few kilos heavier.

RONALD MCDONALD IMPACT DAY
Munich - The first Impact Day of our southernmost German branch was a great success! On July 7th, volunteers from our Munich team spent the day at the Ronald McDonald House, a facility enabling families of seriously ill children to stay with them during their treatment. From 9 o'clock in the morning, a total of ten different cakes were conjured up as part of a baking campaign for the upcoming summer party, which was not only a lot of fun, but above all a particularly sweet joy for the children staying in the Ronald McDonald House and their families. In addition to the baking campaign, the team took the opportunity to donate Covid tests and apples.
Berlin - Our Berlin colleagues started May with a real spring cleaning, and on their Impact Day on May 4th gave walls a fresh coat of paint, weeded leaves, raked flower beds, planted new flowers and cleared the outdoor terrace next to the play ship of moss and weeds. Afterwards, they gathered around the large kitchen block in the common room and conjured up dinner for the families accommodated there. Everyone liked it, the kids especially enjoyed dessert!
Frankfurt - Like all Ronald McDonald houses, the Mainz house is run with a lot of love - but you could still see a few signs of wear and tear here and there. And this is exactly where our Frankfurt colleagues from a wide variety of teams started on April 20th and 26th, painting apartments and corridors, and helping the Bauhaus-style house to new splendour.
Hamburg - A cross-departmental team from PDS and Research met on April 20th at the Ronald McDonald Children's House in the Eppendorf district of Hamburg to treat about 10 families with a delicious spring menu. After buying the fresh ingredients, the chicken was marinated, wild garlic was picked and vegetables were cut. In a relaxed atmosphere, the families enjoyed the delicious food in a menu sequence and we, as hosts, also took turns sitting at the table. One or two very open, and sometimes touching, conversations with the parents took place.
