Social engagement 2022
True to our motto “donations instead of gifts”, we are again supporting charitable projects this year and are doing without analogue Christmas cards and gifts. Every inPuncto employee was able to actively participate in the selection of the organizations to be supported and include them in the social projects of our company. inPuncto was happy to donate to projects that are close to the heart of the employees:
Project of the non-profit association VAMOS JUNTOS, which does social street work in La Paz and supports shoe shiners and their families. By designing postcards with textiles in the national tradition, these families can compensate for some financial losses in bad weather and in times of the pandemic. VAMOS JUNTOS offers the postcards in Germany – mainly in schools, weekly markets and world shops.
The DKMS non-profit GmbH (formerly Central Bone Marrow Donor Registry for Germany), which gives support and hope with its projects for the blood cancer patients.
Other charitable organizations and their projects, such as the sea rescuers fleets, who have set themselves the task of providing search and rescue on the North and Baltic Seas – around the clock, in all weathers. The German Committee for Unicef, the Friends of the Proklinikum Esslingen, the German Red Cross local association Baltmannsweiler, the German Committee for UNICEF e.V., Riding Club Bruchhausen, the music projects of the Volker Rosin Foundation for the support of children with physical and/or mental disabilities, the organizations Viva con Agua, Médecins Sans Frontières, wünschdirwas (make a wish).
Unfortunately, it was difficult again this year for the entrepreneur network tradition-ES, where our managing director Dr. Frank Marcial is an active member to implement social projects and campaigns for older people due to the corona measures. All members are looking forward to a positive development of the situation next year and to the opportunity to implement new social projects and to bring joy to the seniors in a variety of ways!
Social engagement 2020/2021
Even the years marked by the Corona crisis could not keep us away from social engagement. It has become tradition for us to support various social organizations with donations instead of Christmas gifts.
One of them is the Volker Rosin Foundation. With our donations, we support children with physical and / or mental disabilities, as well as children with a migration background, whose social skills and structures are strengthened through music projects in which music is combined with play, theater or movement.
The advice center KOBRA e.V. against violence and sexual violence exercised against children and adolescents was very important to us. Especially in times of Corona, such support offers are very important, as the violent attacks are unfortunately increasing in some families.
Another donation went to the local DRK association in Baltmannsweiler. This is primarily involved in the social field, in the medical service as well as in humanitarian aid and disaster control. This year the DRK offered a shopping service for all citizens (risk groups and infected people in quarantine) who have no support in the communities of Baltmannsweiler and Lichtenwald.
The rescue of the shipwrecked is also close to our hearts and we donate a contribution to the safe equipment and technology of the sea rescuers fleets. We also supported the Riding Club Bruchhausen, which aims to “enable everyone regardless of their mental or physical constitution, their age and budget to ride and handle horses”, with a donation.
In 2021, donations also went to the following organizations: foundation “Große Hilfe für kleine Helden” (Great Help for Small), German Committee for Unicef, DKMS, Nabu, Viva con Agua, Médecins Sans Frontières, The German Deafblind Centre, wwf, wünschdirwas (make a wish), association ProKlinikum Esslingen.
Our CEO Dr. Frank Marcial is still an active member of the entrepreneur network tradition-ES, which is committed to senior projects. Although many of the planned social projects for 2020 and 2021 should be postponed at a later date due to the coronavirus, the non-profit entrepreneurial association has implemented some campaigns, including the thank-you- campaign for the nursing staff at the Esslingen elderly care homes.
Social projects and employee engagement 2019
Like every year we we made our contribution to society by donating to some charitable organizations instead of giving Christmas presents.
For example, in spring we have donated to UNICEF to help families affected by the flood in Mozambique and children in need in Yemen. We also supported the Riding Club Bruchhausen with a donation shortly before Christmas. In addition, our employees personally suggested the organizations they were eager to support and eventually donated to them. These included Seenotretter, viva con Agua, Kobra, Große Hilfe and Frauen helfen Frauen.
A special social project for inPuncto remains the cooperation with the non-profit organization tradition-ES, which has been committed to seniors in the Esslingen area for years. Our CEO Dr. Frank Marcial is still an active member: in 2019 tradition-ES co-organized and financed several events for residents of several nursing homes in Esslingen.
Social commitment 2018
Meaningful donations instead of presents
InPuncto places great value on social commitment and is involved year after year in numerous projects of Plan International Deutschland e.V. In 2018, with our donations we supported Peruvian mothers in organizing their own small business and young families in Sudan to fight nutritional deficiencies and joined a Disaster Relief Fund for affected children. We also helped to organize savings groups in Ghana for the sustainable use of drinking water, and enabled health workers in Uganda to be more mobile.
Volunteering at tradition-ES
In addition, our CEO Dr. Frank Marcial personally supports the entrepreneur network tradition-ES, which is committed to senior citizens in the Esslingen area. Numerous events have been organized this year and the generous donations have been fully invested in new projects for elderly.
Social engagement in 2017
