The devastating flood disaster in the Cologne area and in the Ahr valley has shocked people far beyond the affected regions. Many want to help, including us! Within a few days, 11,250 Euros were collected through donations from employees, which will now be doubled to 22,500 Euros by the company.
Projects caring for socially disadvantaged children need support the whole year round, which is why INVERTO started supporting SOS Children’s Villages over four years ago. Since then 60 INVERTO employees took over godparenthood of children across India and China. These children not only benefit from our financial aid but also receive regular correspondence from their German helpers.
This year, INVERTO took part in the Cologne Bridge Run for the thirteenth time. In bright sunshine and in high spirits, the 30 or so runners from INVERTO set off on the 15.5 km course. For each runner, INVERTO donated 200 euros to charitable organisations suggested by the runners in advance. After the run, the proposed initiatives were voted on over a Kölsch beer and a cool apple spritzer.
Every year INVERTO employees participate in The Cologne Bridge Race - a15 km run over five of the city’s bridges. INVERTO offer a three-figure charity donation for each participant from the company and the runners get to nominate their favourite charity projects in advance. The INVERTO team donated four-figure sums to Dornröschen e.V., down-syndrom-koeln e.V., Die Arche and Nicolaidis YoungWings.
"Open your mouth against blood cancer" is the motto at INVERTO for the second time. For every employee who registers, INVERTO covers the cost of analyzing and classifying the saliva sample. Around 60 INVERTO employees have now registered with DKMS. If there is a saliva match with a leukemia patient, stem cells are taken from the donor to help the patient overcome the blood cancer.
