Lauf / Pegnitz – THOMAS SABO and its long-standing charity partner “Stiftung RTL – Wir helfen Kindern e. V.” are making a call for donations for children in need in Ukraine. This is being kickstarted by company founder Thomas Sabo with a personal donation of EUR 250,000 and an open letter to the Mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko:
Dear Mr Vitali Klitschko,
Seeing you recently in the news surrounding the deplorable war in Ukraine, I would like tell you personally how happy I am to have been able to shake the hand of one of the bravest men of our time at an event. I wish you, your brother, your unbelievably courageous president and the Ukrainian people all the strength in the world!
Together with our long-standing partner RTL-Spendenmarathon, which is already working closely with your management, we have started a donation campaign to support the cause. My family and my company are kickstarting this campaign with a donation of EUR 250,000.
And now to everyone else reading this message:
Join the campaign and donate. Every euro counts! THANK YOU!”
The donations will be sent in full to “Stiftung RTL – Wir helfen Kindern e. V.”, which will distribute the money to its partners working in Ukraine such as UNICEF, SOS Children’s Villages, the German medical aid organisation action medeor, Caritas International, UNO Refugee Aid or Malteser Hilfsdienst.
Donations can be made as follows:
Payee: Stiftung RTL
