Our Fellow Humans are Important to Us
From the beginning, it was important to our founders, Thilo Haas and Kristian Lenz, to use the company's position responsibly. The result was not just a sustainable company policy, but the fact that Connox is aware of its social responsibility.
In 2010, donations for Welthungerhilfe (World Hunger Aid) were collected in a Christmas charity event in 2010. From November 2011 to July 2013, the Connox team sponsored 20 children in Mali. In doing so, it supported the “help for self-help” initiative by Plan Deutschland, one of the oldest and biggest children's help organisations, which places great value on sustainable and child-orientated self-help projects. Connox employees also supported the “One hour against hunger” project in the summer of 2012, which took place on the 50th anniversary of the founding of Welthungerhilfe.
Since the end of 2012, our customers have been doing good with their purchases. We have been cooperating with elefunds, a new donations organisation. Their sponsorship technology allows customers to round their purchase amount up and donate the difference to various charitable organisations. The money given by our customers reached the €10,000 mark by the end of 2014 — a success which we have all contributed to. This shows us once again how we are able to achieve a lot through small steps.
