When during the Corona-crisis it became clear, that face masks will be a part of everyone’s daily life, we wanted to make ourselves useful and started developing some masks. And finally, here they are!
To make a positive contribution we decided to support aid organisations with the sale of our masks. As we have several topics which are important to us and which are worth being supported, we have decided to give the choice in your hands.
Therefore for each sold mask we donate 5€ to ‘Doctors without borders’ or ‘PETA’. Please find a short FAQ concerning the donations below:
Why ‘Doctors without borders’?
As their name suggests, the organization ‘Doctors without borders’ helps people, who urgently need medical, psychological or other support. These people are among others often refugees, people in poor countries without medical care or after natural disasters, but also homeless persons or nursing homes in Germany and Europe.
The media is currently mainly making Corona the subject of the discussion. ‘Doctors without borders’ is taking care of people with many different diseases such as e.g. cholera, initiates vaccination campaigns and is taking care of all those people, who are due to their situation defenceless. They are working for example in refugee camps, where every outbreak of an infection has severe consequences because the residents have no opportunities to protect themselves against an infection. ‘Doctors without borders’ helps locally and that is why we would like to support their important work.
The current focus lies in the Corona-pandemic, it’s victims and the development of a vaccine, which leads to the fact that many other aid organisations are receiving less financial support and important topics are loosing attention.
In our eyes not only animal protection, but also an environmentally- and future-friendly nutrition is more important than ever. The goal of an ecological and human future is (besides other actions) only possible with a global reduction of animal products, as the cultivation of animal feed, water consumption and methane emissions are pushing the climate change enormously. PETA does not only defend animal rights, they also enlighten about the sustainability of a vegan diet. We would like to support their effort with a donation (as we already did in a previous donation campaign).
How does the donation work?
Very simple – while ordering just inform us about your preferred aid organization (Doctors without borders or PETA)! During checkout you will find an option to leave us a comment (see step 1 at the bottom of the page). If you forgot to tell us your preferred option we will split the donation into 50% for each organization.
