A merrier Christmas for Children in Need: collectAI supports Christmas in a Shoebox
Christmas knocking on our door: In our home port of Hamburg this is evident as supermarket shelves are already filled with gingerbread and the first sparkling fairy lights embellish the shopping streets. But Christmas is more than that. It’s about sharing happiness. This year, we are doing this not only by making payment processes simpler and more customer-friendly. We also took part in “Christmas in a Shoebox”
Collecting Gifts for Children in Need
At the event, shoeboxes full to the brim with gifts are sent to children in need in the world. For this purpose, our colleagues donated countless presents for children of different age groups. Soon toys and teddy bears piled up, making our office look like a scene from Toy Story. Together, we filled them in shoeboxes and gift-wrapped all of them – ready for shipment.
Being part of the Otto Group, social responsibility is firmly anchored in our DNA. With projects like these, we to contribute to making the world a better place.
“Every one of us can do our bit to make sure that things in our society improve.”
