A matter of the heart

We support families

More and more families in Germany cannot afford a holiday due to their tight financial situation and other misfortunes. This situation is particularly bad for children. We want to make children’s eyes shine and create moments that really count and are always remembered. Therefore we decided to set an example and help affected families. In 2014, we launched the campaign “Vacation with heart” for this purpose. Every year we give ten families an unforgettable vacation home holiday – for many it is the first holiday trip in their lives.
