Milestone: LR Global Kids Fund has donated more than one million euros so far

 LR Global Kids Fund has donated more than one million euros for international aid projects over the past six years.

"We are proud of the fact that we could already provide assistance in 24 countries to improve the prospects of children and teenagers," comments Dr. Thomas Stoffmehl, Chairman of the Board of LR Global Kids Fund.

With a share of 40 % of the total donations, children's aid projects in Germany were supported. Among others, the Ahlen Lunch Club, the German Children’s Heart Hospital in Sankt Augustin as well as blu:boks Berlin received financial assistance. In addition to its involvement in Germany, the association primarily supports smaller projects in Europe. Since 2009, about EUR 70,000 went to France and children facing poverty in the Polish city of Katowice benefited from almost EUR 50,000.

The association's involvement is made possible by donations of its largest supporter LR Health & Beauty as well as numerous private donors. 500 sponsoring members make a monthly contribution of five to 100 euros. "Thanks to the financial support provided by our regular donors, we can make plans for the long term and support our projects sustainably,” comments Dr. Thomas Stoffmehl.
